In January 2009 the Commission launched a "Study on Consumer Detriment in the area of Dynamic Packagespdf Choose translations of the previous link  ", which focuses on measuring consumer detriment in the area of the so-called "dynamic packages" (travel packages put together by the consumer online).

Against this background, the Commission launched a public consultation on the revision of the Directive in November 2009.

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. It also aimed to quantify the impact of various possible legislative options. The outcome of the consultation is presented in this summary of responsespdf .
