The European Union: Driving down travel costs in summer 2013

Whether you're travelling to see your family or friends, or have to go somewhere for work, the EU is working to make the journey cheaper- and to make sure that you don't lose out if something goes wrong along the way. Here are 6 infographics around the theme "Driving down travel costs in summer 2013".


 Lower price for roaming: The EU is saving you money once you cross the border. New measures entering into force on 1st July 2013 mean that roaming costs across a range of mobile services have fallen by over 80% since 2007, including by up to 91% for data.

 Single European Airspace: For over 20 years, thanks to the single market for aviation, air travellers could choose the routes, carriers and services they liked at decreasing prices. Inefficiencies in managing national airspace cost airlines and their customers around 5 billion euro per year. Today the EU airspace is fragmented into 27 national air traffic control systems. That means flights are often unable to take direct routes and on average, in Europe, aircraft fly 42 km longer than strictly necessary due to airspace fragmentation, causing longer flight time, delays, extra fuel burn and CO2 emissions. By turning national airspace into European airspace through the Single European Sky, airlines will pass on massive savings to consumers, making flights cheaper when you book your next trip.

 Passenger rights for all modes of transports: If you're the victim of a long delay or cancellation, EU passenger rights legislation covering air, rail, waterborne and bus & coach transport means that you'll not only receive fair assistance, but that you won't have to foot the bill for a hotel room if the worst happens. The EU is now the first area in the world with a full set of passenger rights for all modes of transport. But if European citizens do not know how to claim them, these rights are meaningless. Before travelling look for information on how to claim your rights in airports, ports, bus and train stations across Europe, or download the application for smartphones. Passenger rights for all modes of transports: If you're the victim of a long...

 Better protection for holidaymakers: If you book a package holiday, and your operator goes bust, EU rules ensure that you will get home with no extra costs. This summer new solutions are proposed to extend protection to 120 million consumers a year and include travel arrangements you combine online. Package travellers will benefit from fairer and more predictable prices and on clear rules on cancellation, if something unplanned happens before departure, refund, assistance and compensation. Better protection for holidaymakers: If you book a package holiday, and your...
