Crackdown on Offending Travel Agencies

Around 300 travel agencies in Tehran have had their licenses revoked while 558 have received warnings since July for a variety of reasons, ranging from poor service to breaching the law.
Ali Rafiei, tourism deputy at the provincial office of Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization, said the capital city's travel sector needs stringent monitoring. 
"Efforts to monitor the activities of travel service providers have increased since July to help protect tourists' rights, detect violations and encourage travel companies to address their problems," he was quoted as saying by the travel news website Safar. 
An electronic system to supervise the activities of travel agencies will be launched, which will help monitor all stages of their operations from obtaining a license to offering services to clients.  
The official said all travel agencies are obliged to sign up on the portal to be able to operate. Referring to outfits offering illegal online travel services, Rafiei said so far 42 unauthorized tour operators providing travel services in cyberspace have been identified and efforts are underway to exert more control over their online activities.
