Интернет даде свобода на всеки един сам да резервира различни елементи от пътуването си вместо да разчита на предварително уговорени пакети. На 5 май Парламентът и Съветът постигнаха съгласие по промени в законодателството, които ще гарантират на хората, закупили пакетни почивки онлайн, същите права, каквито имат и клиентите на традиционните пътнически агенции. Според авторката на доклада на ЕП Биргит Колин-Ланген (ЕНП, Германия) това води до значително укрепване на правата на потребителите.

Качеството на водите в Европа Инфографика - Туризъм / Околна среда22-08-2014 - 11:26

Лято е и милиони европейци се отправят на почивка на безбройните красиви плажове из Европа. Според доклада на Европейската агенция за околната среда за 2013 г. 95% от плажовете отговарят на минималните изисквания за безопасност на водите. Хърватия, Малта, Словения и Гърция са само някои от страните, които могат да се похвалят с отлично качество на водите за къпане. Къде обаче водата е най-бистро синя?
