'Lessons must be learned' from previous Olympics

'Lessons must be learned' from previous Olympics

The organisers of the London 2012 Olympics need to learn from Games already held in order to make the event a success, it has been claimed.

According to the European Tour Operators Association (ETOA), organisers need to look at the Games in Beijing, Athens and Sydney to get an idea of how to make the event run smoothly and show people a great time.

Visitors to the Olympic Games abroad may have had to get travel insurance to cover their trip but spectators keen to catch the London event should still buy such a policy as problems can occur on a domestic break as well as a getaway abroad - Cancellation and curtailment insurance is therefore essential.

Executive director of the ETOA Tom Jenkins said: "There is no ground for complacency and if we are going to attract people to London, we have got to devise something which is both spectacular and appeals to people independently of the Olympic Games."
