Abstract

On 25 November 2015 the new Package Travel Directive was adopted. The Directive modernises the 1990 Package Travel Directive, in particular by expanding its scope to certain dynamic packages. The new Directive must be transposed by 1 January 2018 and will then be applicable from 1 July 2018. By that same date, the 1990 Package Travel Directive will be repealed. Whereas the 1990 Directive indicated the person travelling on the basis of the package travel contract as a ‘consumer’, the 2015 Directive rightly has changed that indication into ‘traveller’, as also business travellers under certain conditions are offered the protection that the Directive offers.
