package holiday

originally a marketing exercise whereby a travel agent could profit by combining accommodation and travel, now the object of European and domestic legislation. The rules provide for practical measures such as detailed information to be provided and help to be available in resort. Legally terms are implied in contracts in favour of the holidaymaker. The burden of proof in some cases of injury abroad is reversed and placed on the tour operator. Ironically, just as the regulations came in, Internet options to allow people to arrange their own holidays made the regulations less relevant.
