Complaint from: 1 viewer
Text advertising for Travelhouse offered a 14-night, self-catering holiday in Benidorm for £119 based on two people sharing accommodation.
A viewer who called to enquire about the offer was told that the price was in fact based on four people sharing.
Teletext assured the ITC that this had been a genuine error and that the advertiser had taken steps to correct its advertising as soon as the viewer had made it aware of its mistake. Nevertheless, misleading advertising had been broadcast.
Complaint upheld. Breach of ITC Code Rule 5.1.
