The revised Package Travel Directive

01-07-19 - On 1 July 2018, the revised Package Travel Directive came into effect across the whole of the European Union.

Package Travel Directive effective on 1 July 2018

The new directive maximises the definition of a travel package in order to offer further protection to consumers. This means that since 1 July 2018, many businesses in the tourist sector effectively offer travel packages. This in turn means specific obligations for such businesses. For example, travellers must be protected against the business becoming financially insolvent. VZR Garant provides a simple and affordable guarantee scheme to ensure compliance. You can find more information about the revised Package Travel Directive here.
