EU: ADVICE, QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS FOR EUROPEANS ON HOLIDAY” “” “

"Useful advice for summer with no anxiety": it is advice coming from Brussels for "the millions of Europeans intending to travel within and beyond the borders of the European Union", to demonstrate "EU’s wish to help and assist one’s travellers". It is a sort of vade mecum, a list of so-called FAQs, frequently asked questions. For example, if one travels in a country where there is no embassy or consulate of one’s country, in case of difficulties, it is possible to address the ones of any other EU member country. In case a child gets lost, there is a hotline with a telephone number (116 000) to be rung if you are in an EU member country. Moreover, the vade mecum asks readers to get proper information on the "rights of the traveller" using a public means of transport; the same thing is true for disabled travellers, who have also the opportunity to take advantage of special parking permits in all the 28 EU countries, if they use their own cars. Moreover, there are cases in which it is possible to ask for reimbursement of prepaid travel packages, cheap telephone fees, rules to carry one’s pets or to take home meat or dairy products as souvenirs. And then there is advice for purchases abroad or health assistance. Everything with a click.
