Study on safety and liability issues relating to package travel, package holidays, and package tours

Project summary:
The issue of accidents and injuries while on holiday has been described as an “essentially invisible problem” that has received little attention compared to other themes in tourism. This is most reflected in the very limited availability of statistics on travel accidents and safety issues during holidays. This study on safety and liability issues relating to package travel, package holidays, and package tours sought to highlight some of the gaps in the EU package travel law by answering a number of specific questions related to statistical evidence, Community legislation, and US legislation. It also suggested possible solutions to fill these gaps.
