What is a Package? Analysis of the Current Definition

In order for there to be a ‘package’ within the meaning of the current PTD therefore, there must be:

 A pre-arranged combination;

 Of two or more travel services;

 At an inclusive price.

Whilst the definition itself appears straightforward, as the PTD is a directive and does not have direct effect in Member States, it is open to the interpretation of the national courts who have sought to widen the definition of ‘package’ in line with consumer perception.
