This study provides an updated evaluation of the Package Travel Directive. Firstly, the implementation of the Directive – especially though the current state of play in the new Member States – is analysed. Particular aspects of the Directive are treated, such as the problem of the travel provider becoming insolvent, issues relating to intermediaries and travel not regulated by the Directive. Secondly, proposals are treated. The Directive is evaluated from the perspectives of stakeholders and consumers. An update is given on the latest relevant legislative developments. This includes, specifically, the Consumer Rights Directive and the proposal for a European Sales Law in e-commerce. As a result, specific overarching proposals are made which may remedy the issues addressed.
