(1) The promotion and use of forms that include inaccurate information for planning travel and holidays, constitutes a misleading omission, as relevant material information on the main characteristics and costs of the offers had been omitted.
(2) It constitutes an aggressive commercial practice to request payment for supplementary costs and for activities that were not ordered by the consumer.
Further to a consumer complaint reported on 27 November 2007, and following its own investigation activities, the Italian Competition Authority decided to start an investigation proceeding against Sagittario Distribuzioni S.r.l. (a company active in the organisation of travels and holidays).
The commercial practices investigated by the Authority consisted of several unfair behaviours related to misleading information (by means of forms) regarding the promotion of special travel offers to consumers.
As the practice had also been carried out online, the opinion of the Italian Communication Authority was also requested on 15 September 2009.
Does the promotion and use of forms that include inaccurate information for planning travel and holidays, constitute an unfair commercial practice?
