1. The MATTA Code Of Ethics :
1.1 What It Means to Our Members
Ethical values in the travel and tourism industry are global requirements. They are the foundation of responsible business and other practices of travel agents, tour and others in the industry.
It is our responsibility to provide tourists, travellers as well as our partners in the travel and tourism industry with reliable information on the journey, the tour, the hospitality arrangements and the conditions of contract in a clear, understandable and unambiguous manner.
Our code of ethics calls on all members to model their conduct on the principles embodied in this Code of Ethics of MATTA and to implement them in good faith in accordance with the provisions contained herein.
This Code is, by no means, an exhaustive compilation of rules which will anticipate every contingency and cover every aspect of our business dealings and practices. It is important that members look beyond the words contained in the Code of Ethics and embrace the practice and spirit of proper business behaviour. While providing guidance to members in ensuring good business practice, it will act as a reminder of the universal values founded on the principles of integrity, competence and devotion to service in the industry.
Other values, such as the protection of the environment, the preservation of culture, the share of mutual benefits with the local communities and guarantee of fundamental rights of employees should also require the attention of members.
This Code will assist the industry to achieve high standards of professionalism, enhance and uphold the dignity of the profession and enable the Association and its members to be role models for others in the industry to emulate and engage in smart partnerships.
1.2 What It Means to Customers & Consumers
The activities of travel agents, tour and ground operators and others in the travel and tourism industry contribute significantly to the economic, social and cultural well-being of the community and country that they operate in.
It is essential that customers and consumers are accorded with standards and obligations of service that meet and satisfy their expectations as well as attain the professional levels contracted for in accordance with the norms of the industry. In a world that has diverse choices for customers and consumers to choose as well as select the company that they do business with, they have the right to a high level of service.
With this Code of Ethics, all MATTA members pledge to provide professional service and to serve their customers and consumers to the best of their abilities.
Customers, consumers and trade business partners who have any reasonable complaint arising out of non-compliance of the Code, may file their complaints in writing to the MATTA Consumers Affairs Board. If such complaints, are unresolved, they will be brought to the attention of the Executive Council of MATTA and, where necessary, the Government licensing authorities.
As a professional association, MATTA will endeavour to promote the highest professional practice amongst members and to reinforce MATTA’s standing as Malaysia’s national association for travel agents and tour operators. In this regard, MATTA will continue to represent the interests of all travel agents, tour and ground operators in the country to achieve greater heights in the travel and tourism industry for the benefits of customers and consumers.
