On 24 November a symposium about the new Package Travel Directive is organised at the Eye Film Institute, Amsterdam.

Detail Summary
Date 24 November 2015
Time 11:00 - 18:15

Abstract

With the European Parliament and the European Council finally reaching an agreement on the revision of the Package Travel Directive earlier this year, this symposium intends to evaluate the new rules, anticipate problems with their implementation into national laws, as well as discuss missed chances in the harmonization of the travel sector contracts. Experts in this field will discuss, among other things, such issues as: the exclusion of individually arranged combined services by the consumer from the scope of the PTD, the difficulties of protecting travelling consumers in the P2P economy and in the digital age, continued lack of harmonization of passenger law.
