Ensuring fairness on the move - CTSI Brexit Think Tank
“Perhaps more than most other sectors, consumers could realise the Brexit impact on consumer law when they arrange to travel after March 2019” – that’s one of the key findings contained in the travel section of the Chartered Trading Standards Institute’s Brexit Think Tank report published in the autumn 2018.
The report says that cross-border trading will be affected in various ways, not all of them positive and adds that the question remains to what extent the important protections outlined can be retained after Brexit.
It adds: “There is a growing and urgent need to clarify the status of EU agreements for UK travellers. Consumer need to know now whether they will be protected and compensated for cancellations and delays.”
