Improved regulation of organised tourism travel services in Lithuania.

On July 17th, Section 35-3, Book 6 of the Civil Code of the Republic of Lithuania was amended with regard to the provision of organised tourism travel services. The aim of these amendments was to implement the provisions of the Directive 2015/2302.

The rights of travel organisers to change the terms of a contract and to terminate an organised travel agreement were extended. The improved provisions are also related to conclusion of an organised tourism travel agreement, provision of information prior to the conclusion of an agreement, and the liability of travel organisers for improper performance of a contract and indemnification.

From now on it will be possible to terminate a contract not only for a valid reason, but any time before the start of an trip, which might have an impact on the travel business market
