Welcoming the Parliament's response, Věra Jourová, Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality said: "If you plan your holidays you should not have to worry about insufficient legal protection. This is why new EU rules will soon protect over 120 million holidaymakers who book combined travel online: adapting the EU rules on package travel to the digital age. Travellers will clearly know what they are buying and what their rights are, especially if something goes wrong during their holidays. Travellers will benefit from clearer information, fairer and more predictable prices, stronger cancellation rights and improved guarantees for repatriation. These new rules also support the travel industry which will benefit from less administrative burden and much-needed legal clarity."
