Package Travel Directive

Dear Partner,

The European Parliament and the Council adopted new rules on package travel in November 2015, on the basis of the Commission's proposal of 2013, reflecting these developments in the travel market. The new rules will be applicable in all EU countries from 1 July 2018.

These rules protect package holidays organised by tour operators and give protection to consumers and travellers who book combined travel packages such as river cruise and hotel or flight.

We will give you a short overview about the new Package Travel Directive in the following:
