In 2007 the Commission published a working document to set out the main regulatory problems in the area of package travel and also to consult stakeholders on issues related to the Directive. The consultation showed strong support for its revision. The outcome of the consultation is presented in this summary of responses .
In January 2009 the Commission launched a "Study on Consumer Detriment in the area of Dynamic Packages ", focusing on the measurement of consumer detriment in the area of so-called "dynamic packages".
Against this background, the Commission launched a public consultation on the revision of the Directive in November 2009. The consultation is now closed. While the consultation in 2007 sought to outline the problems with the existing Directive, this consultation focused on possible ways of solving the main problems with existing package travel rules.
On 22 April 2010 the Commission held a full-day stakeholders' workshop on the revision of the Package Travel Directive (90/314/EEC).
The aim of the workshop was to discuss the policy options identified during the revision process.
Web-streaming recordings are available:
