    COMMISSION STATEMENT

    When revising the Commission staff working document of 3 December 2009 entitled "Guidance on the implementation/application of Directive 2005/29/EC on unfair commercial practices", the Commission will also address the issue of commercial practices whereby travel service providers who market their services online offer additional services in a hidden, unclear or ambiguous manner, such as hiding the option of not booking any further services. The Commission will inform Parliament on how its views have been taken into account when the revised Guidance is adopted.
