Essential rights provided for in Decree-Law no. 17/2018 of 8 March:

  • Travellers will receive all essential information about the travel package before entering into the contract.

 

  • There is always at least one operator responsible for the correct performance of all travel services included in the contract.

 

 

  • Travellers have an emergency phone number or contact details for a contact point to communicate with the organiser or travel agency.

 

  • Travellers may assign the package to another person, subject to reasonable notice and, possibly, additional fees.

 

  • The price of the package can only be increased in the event of an increase in specific costs (for example, the price of fuel), if this possibility is expressly provided for in the contract and, in any case, up to 20 days before the start of the package. If the price increase exceeds 8% of the package price, the traveller can terminate the contract. If the organiser reserves the right to increase the price, the traveller is entitled to a reduction in the price in the event of a reduction in the relevant costs.

 

  • Travellers can terminate the contract without paying a termination fee and obtain a full refund of payments made in the event of a significant change in any of the essential elements of the package, with the exception of the price. If, before the start of the package, the operator responsible for it cancels it, travellers are entitled to a refund and, if applicable, compensation.

 

  • Travellers can terminate the contract without paying a termination fee prior to the start of the package, in exceptional circumstances, for example in the event of serious security problems at the destination that could affect the package.

 

  • In addition, travellers can terminate the contract at any time before the start of the package by paying an appropriate and justifiable termination fee.

 

  • If, after the start of the package, it is not possible to provide significant elements of the trip as agreed, appropriate alternatives will have to be proposed to the traveller, without additional costs. The traveller can terminate the package contract without paying a termination fee if the services are not performed under the contract, this lack of conformity considerably affects the execution of the package and the organiser does not rectify this fault.

 

  • Travellers are also entitled to a reduced price and/or compensation for damages in the event of non-compliance or poor performance of the travel services.

 

  • The organiser must provide assistance if a traveller is in difficulty.

 

  • If the organiser or the retailer is declared bankrupt, payments will be refunded. If the organiser or the retailer is declared bankrupt after the start of the package and if transport is included in the package, the repatriation of travellers is guaranteed.
