The new directive regulates not only package travel arrangements, as before, but also linked travel arrangements, in respect of which it is necessary to provide protection in case of default in the form of a bank guarantee or insurance. In addition, the rights of travellers have been clarified and expanded. More information on key rights under Directive (EU) 2015/2302 in relation to package travel arrangements.
Services offered by the Agency
The agency on the web sites offers package travel arrangements and individual travel services. The agency does not provide linked travel arrangements. A notice on the nature of the services provided can be found in the description of each product in the "Information" section.
The tour operators listed in the "Information" section of the product descriptions are responsible for the organization and provision of protection for the proposed package travel arrangement in accordance with the requirements of Directive (EU) 2015/2302.
Individual travel services offered and their combinations are outside the scope of Directive (EU) 2015/2302 and do not provide any protection under Directive (EU) 2015/2302. In this case, the indicated price of more than one service is indicative (may not be up-to-date), is not binding and is displayed solely for your convenience, to allow you better plan your trip budget. Please note that in case of individual services, booking of each subsequent service with the intermediate of the Agency is possible not earlier than 24 hours from the time of the previous booking.
If you select and pay for one travel service, you will NOT benefit from rights applying to packages or linked travel arrangements under Directive (EU) 2015/2302.
