in recent years, China's online tourism market has grown rapidly, creating a number of online tourism enterprises such as Ctrip, Qunar and Tuniu. At the same time, many travel agencies have gradually expanded their business to online, and the official website has become an important way to attract tourists. More and more tourists are getting used to inquiring about relevant information, booking product routes and making corresponding evaluations on the Internet.."online tourism is of positive significance for promoting the construction of modern service industry in China and giving consumers more choices.."Dai Bin, President of China Tourism Research Institute, first affirmed the positive significance of online tourism enterprises, and pointed out that there are also some problems at present.,"some enterprises publish some false travel information on the Internet, and some are suspected of violating the Tourism Law and the Travel Agency Regulations.."

Save Transaction Letterinterest3as the basis for safeguarding rights
accordingXXConsulting Data,2013, the transaction scale of China's online tourism marketda2204.6billion yuan. The "Survey on Chinese Netizens' Tourism and Leisure Life and Outbound Tourism Consumption Status" shows that young and middle-aged people with high education and middle and high income have become the main body of online consumers with travel habits, and their travel methods tend to be networked and self-service,75%of netizens will choose online online transactions for travel consumption.
"XX"ishere75%. As an independent photographer and travel expert,"XX"has left by itself.27countries. approx.in2010, he began to plan the whole process through the network, and dealing with various travel websites became the norm for him to travel.."sometimes I go on the road alone, sometimes I set out in groups with a few friends.."In this process,"XX"found many imperfections in the travel website.
"last year, I made an appointment with several friends to go to Sanya for a holiday and buy products through a travel website, while others entrusted me with full authority. So, colleagues7people..""XX"said,"is very convenient and saves time, it also has hidden dangers. For example, the travel agency that undertakes only has the real-name information of one participant, and the travel website only signs a travel contract with me, which cannot guarantee that every tourist recognizes the terms agreed in the contract. In the event of an accident or dispute, it will be difficult for my friend to defend his rights.."
to this, Dai Bin stressed that tourists must sign contracts when purchasing tourism products through websites. Generally, formal online travel websites also have a variety of options for signing contracts: online signing, fax signing, door-to-door signing or store signing. According to Articles 10 and 11 of Chapter II of the The People's Republic of China Contract Law, electronic contracts signed online have the same legal effect as paper contracts.
new regulations also have corresponding requirements for information and data services of online tourism enterprises.."platform will be stored for a long time since the date of their last login.on3. The transaction data that can be queried is kept for a period of time from the date of the transaction.on3."in this way, if there is a dispute after tourists' consumption, there will be a basis for safeguarding their rights.

The leaked information includes: cardholder's name, cardholder's ID card, bank card type, bank card number, etc., endangering the user's payment security. Some industry sources revealed that thisthing"may affect online travelindustry". Other problems such as disclosure of user contact information and purchase records are also widespread.
"this is indeed a problem that plagues tourists."Dai Bin admitted in an interview with this newspaper,", we should also see that this does not only exist in online travel companies, but also in Internet companies in other fields, such as shopping. Preventing information leakage is a problem of network supervision, which involves many departments. It is difficult to solve it by the tourism department alone. It needs to be solved by the Internet supervision department, financial supervision department, public security department, etc.."
