Treść
This paper focuses on the issue of spa & wellness services market tran s- parency in the context of official regulations. The issue is significant, since the entire tourism sector in Poland is generally regulated to a great extent. It co n- cerns, among others, the categories of tourist resorts and the standard of rendered services. Detailed regulations, however, do not cover spa & wellness services, which have been relatively new form of spending free time. No standards o n one hand, and no relevant regulations on the other result in this market being chara c- terized by a serious quality span depending on particular service providers. The goal of this paper is an examination of the thesis that no uniform national regul ation of the Polish spa & wellness market is a reason for poor market transparency resulting from information asymmetry which, in turn, results from quality unce r- tainty. The theoretical thoughts have been proven by the authors' surveys focused on the shape of th e spa & wellness services market in the Dolny Śląsk area. The first part of the paper presents a theoretical background of the issue related to uncertainty of the quality, information asymmetry and finally – the market tran s- parency. The next part of the pa per is focused on the Polish spa & wellness market and it comprises an analysis of the effects caused by poor transparency of the ma r- ket. Another part reveals the regulations of the tourism market and proves that no uniform regulations pertaining to spa & wellness services makes that the remai n- ing legislation ineffective in the field of shaping high - quality services. The last part of the paper deals with self - regulation of the spa & wellness market and reasons for the insufficient efficiency.
