Hotels in Spain want to go to law with Thomas Cook: "number of leading hotels in Spain, are united against one of the leaders of the world tourism market - the British travel company Thomas Cook. The reasons for the claims of Spanish hoteliers were trimmed payments that Thomas Cook has transferred to the hotels’ bills.
Among those who received partial payment for their services are hotels of Spain's top resorts such as Benidorm, Costa Del Sol, Mallorca, Ibiza, Tenerife and Lanzarotte.
The Spanish Confederation of Hotels and Tourism (CEHAT) notes that in total Thomas Cook paid about 5% less than the contract amount. Representatives of CEHAT called such reduction to be 'illegal' and in the near future plan to apply to court for restoration of their rights, according to ttglive.com.
CEHAT intends to provide advice to all the hotels that have suffered from the actions of Thomas Cook. In a statement CEHAT noted that violations of contractual obligations by Thomas Cook can be a dangerous precedent and that the Confederation would require the Thomas Cook compliance with prescribed conditions of the contract."
