Package Travel Directive

The Package Travel (Amendment) Regulations 1998 were introduced to deal with the anomaly in the UK’s implementation fo the Package Travel Directive. Article 4 of the Directive requires the organiser to provide the consumer, before the contract is made, with, inter alia, general information on passports and visa requirements applicable to nationals of Member States. Article 3 also requires such information to be contained in any brochures. The UK Regulations only required information for British citizens. The amendment extends the provision to cover all European Ecomonic Area citizens, i.e. EU citizens and citizens of Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein.
