Repacking travel laws

The Package Travel Directive review was voted on by the Internal Market and Consumer Protection committee of the European Parliament on Tuesday, February 11.

In the end, the committee’s work resulted in some improvements, but at the same time rolled back many of the requested consumer protections on key issues. For example: protection if a holiday is bought via a combination of online services and thresholds for price increases. We hope that MEPs will use the plenary vote (scheduled for March 2014) to improve this initiative. You can read the BEUC statement on the vote and our position paper below.
