No regrets on sydenturen? The new law can give you your money back

Last summer, Norway got a new pakkereiselov order to secure the rights to the traveller. But Parliament was not completely satisfied and asked the government to promote a new proposal to introduce a right of withdrawal on package tours. the

And at the same time to make sure reisegaranti for transportdelen of a package tour.

Now, they have the full support from the Norwegian Consumer council. While reisearrangørene object. the
If the right of withdrawal is introduced it will mean that the need for trip cancellation insurance may be gone. the

The new law was introduced 1. July and meant that travelers could get tusenlapper back after the holidays.

This they will have a new law Supports the new pakkereiselov: Pia Cecilie Fall in the Consumer. Show more

- the Norwegian Consumer council supports the proposals that there should be reisegaranti for transportation included in a package tour. This should apply regardless of whether transportdelen of the package tour occurs with regular scheduled shuttle together with passengers who do not participate in the package tour, or with chartertransport where it just sits pakkereiseturister, " says Pia C. Fall, the leader of the forbrukerdialog in the department of communication and digital services

This means that all passengers in a charter flights – regardless of whether you purchased your trip as a package holiday or just flights - have the same rights.

We are strongly critical of such a scheme, then it will only border "organizers". If it introduces a requirement to set reisegaranti it should include anyone who sells a flight from the Uk, writes Astrid Bergmål, the leader of the bransjearbeidet to Seem to Travel Abroad in their responses received can be seen to the ministry of Children and equality.

We're behind Virkes responses received can be seen, " says Siri Røhr-Staff Appreciation in Winger, Norway. The same does Beatriz Rivera in the Apollo.

"We show and join us here at the ministry rightly describes in its consultation paper: "national special rules be at a competitive disadvantage for Norwegian singers who will compete both nationally and across borders. the
Carrier and foreign reisearrangører will forutsetningsvis be able to sell cheaper air tickets to the travelers than the Norwegian reisearrangører if only the latter need to set reisegaranti by the sale of an airline ticket.", writes the trade association Act, which proposes to establish a reisegarantifond for flights after inspiration from the Danish model.

These days you'll get your travels for half the price

Denmark is currently the only country in Europe that has any form of reisegaranti for air transport, or so-called "seat-only", which is not a part of a package tour.

Right of withdrawal

- We also support the proposal to introduce a 14 day right of withdrawal on package tours, which are purchased outside the fixed business premises. The right of withdrawal are meant to act as a safety valve against the agreements that are entered into in situations where one easily can be influenced to act on impulse, and where one has little opportunity to seek information or compare prices. Something which often can happen with sales over the phone or on the stands, " says Pia C. Fall further.

Countries like Greece, Germany, Croatia and Austria already have such a right of withdrawal

"today, there is no right of withdrawal on agreements on packages, either in limited or in law. With the right defense we a right to say away from a contract which is concluded by distance selling or sales outside of fixed business premises, without giving any reason. Distance selling is typical agreements concluded via the Internet or telephone, while examples of agreements entered into outside the permanent business premises typically are agreements entered into at trade shows, in-the-home selling or in sales meetings.", enter the ministry of Children and equality in the so.


the consumer ombudsman tells that through their supervision experience that vacation packages sold outside of a fixed retail outlet, typically happens in the sales meetings or similar gatherings.

the Elderly are often an important target group and travels can be presented as free, as a prize, or with a low inngangssum.

Such offers can be very alluring, while the less attractive sides are undercommunicated.

In the proposal would like the Norwegian Consumer council and the ministry of Children and equality 14-day cooling-off period that will apply until the trip has started. And you should without having to provide a reason get all the money, including the fee, to be repaid as soon as possible.

the cooling off period shall apply 14 days from the day the agreement about the service was concluded. If reiseselskapet not provide the consumer with information about the cancellation rights, expires, the withdrawal period of 12 months after the expiry of the initial cancellation period, but nevertheless, 14 days after the day the consumer received the information.

Shorter cooling-off period

" We are already offering 1-week right of withdrawal when the journey is sold in a long time before departure. With us you can free of charge change or cancel your trip within 7 days from order and get the entire deposit back. Open the purchase assumes that there are more than 42 days to departure. Open purchase does not apply to travel by scheduled flights, cruises or when it is commissioned extra capacity at the hotel, " says Siri Røhr-Staff.

- the special rules which create obstacles that impair the competitiveness of the Norwegian tourist agencies and enterprises, and that ultimately will be able to frame both the offer and freedom of choice to the travellers in the Norwegian market should be avoided, believes the trade association Work.

Seem to believe, on his side, of the cancellation policy of the law is sufficient to allow the travelers come out out of a deal.


"Parliament has requested that there be introduced a right of withdrawal on package tours. Parliament has not requested the Government to promote a proposal to introduce a right of withdrawal on the flights, nor does the so-called "seat-only". It will also be unreasonable for it to be given a right of withdrawal for flights sold by an organizer, when there is a corresponding right of withdrawal for the flights in general", they mean Astrid Bergmål and Work.

- They denied the flight because they do not know to this
