On 10 July, the EU Commission proposes to publish their recommended amendments in order to modernise the Package Travel Directive, enacted in the UK as the Package Travel, Holidays and Tours Regulations 1992 (amended 1995).

The Commission states that

"In 1990 the EU adopted the Package Travel Directive, which grants travellers important rights across the EU when purchasing package tours and holidays.

These rights relate, for instance, to information, liability for inadequate performance of the services and insolvency protection/repatriation. Since the adoption of the Directive, the travel market has been transformed, notably by the internet. The Directive thus needs be modified and adapted to these developments."
