The UK shopping guide was the first produced in the series to coincide with European tourists arriving for the Olympic and Paralympic Games this Summer. Other guides available are for shoppers visiting Austria , Belgium , Bulgaria , Czech Republic , France and Germany . Guides for the remaining EU countries, as well as Iceland and Norway who make-up the ECC network, will complete the series in the near future.
Sonia Payne, UK European Consumer Centre Legal Advisor, said:
“Part of our role is to publish information to help consumers, so our European shopping guide leaflets are designed to give people knowledge to help them on their shopping trips. We want all visitors to the UK to have good experiences. The more information European consumers have in advance, the better.”
