(2013)Technologies and Law.p.109-116 Mark abstract Consumers progressively use the Internet when booking their holiday. Doing so, an increasing amount of contracts are concluded with foreign touristic services providers, without the intervention of an intermediary located in the consumers country. Within this context, the question arises which law is applicable to online consumer contracts relating to touristic services. This paper will show on the one hand that different rules of private international law apply depending on the type of holiday which is booked (which makes it all very complicated, especially for consumers), on the other hand that not all rules of private international law, which are important in the context of the provision of touristic services, protect consumers. Finally, it is examined as to what extent this finding really matters, taking into account the harmonization of consumer protection law within the European Union.
