Abstract

Some concluding remarks are made. After adopting the Consumer Rights Directive, there is a need to coordinate the existing regulations. In particular, we consider that the current separation between distance selling and tourism should be fully revised. In addition, the research for this book confirmed that some of the current information requirements and withdrawal and performance rules of consumer acquis are not fitting for selling tourism services at a distance. With regard to this, some proposals are made with the aim of making some of the rules more appropriate in the context of the review of the consumer acquis and a future optional European contract.
