INTRODUCTION 3 The Directive (EU) 2015/2302 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 November 2015 on package travel and linked travel arrangements (henceforth, Directive (EU) 2015/2302) entered into force on December 31, 2015. It amended Regulation (EC) No 2006/2004 and Directive 2011/83/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council and repealed Council Directive 90/314/EEC from 1 July 2018. New EU rules protect almost 120 million travellers buying combined travel arrangements. This reduces damages to consumers by about €430 million a year. This is achieved thanks to 4 : a) A broadening of the concept of ‘package’. b) Clearer information for travellers. 1 Profesora titular de Derecho civil.
