Holiday Con Hot Line

Following on from Bobthenob's "Turkey has changed" thread, here's an article that's appeared in the Fethiye Times 2nd February 2009.

The Governor of Muğla was in town this week for another meeting about the future of the Seki ski resort.

Whilst the report makes no mention of any resort-related conclusions from this meeting, it focuses instead on the Governor’s announcement of his new ‘197 Alo Vali’ telephone line.

Apparently the Governor (and remember this is the man with the fortuitous surname ‘Altıparmak ’ or ‘Sixfingers’) has had a survey carried out by a private research company which concluded that 70% of tourists visiting Muğla felt they had been conned during their stay.

He does not tell us who carried out the survey, exactly what numbers were involved or any detail on the nature of the ‘cons’.

However, because the Governor quite rightly says that the region will never grow its tourist numbers until sharp practice has been outlawed, he will be setting up a complaints phone line.

It will available 24 hours a day with English and Russian speakers on duty – he plans to increase the available languages in due course.

Any complaints can be delivered by dialling 197 and saying ‘Alo Vali’.

We tested the line last Saturday and found it was unobtainable but we'll keep trying and let you know when it is up and running.

And, when it is, we'll maybe ring at 4am just so we can check it is really 24 hour!


TLF members are welcome to try the number and let us know whether they get a response.
