Holiday Law: The Law Relating to Travel and Tourism, considered to be the leading text on holiday law, provides a comprehensive guide to the law as it relates to all forms of holidays. Its broad coverage of the subject includes the nature of the contractual relationship between tour operator, civil liability and the effects of insolvency and examines the travel industry and looks at the agencies that regulate the industry.

The law relating to holidays, travel and tourism has developed significantly over the last few years to reflect the changes in the way that people are buying their travel services and the way that travel companies are selling them. New regulations seek to extend protection to more travellers and the courts are dealing with more diverse claims as travellers look to enforce those rights and travel companies seek clarification on their responsibilities. 

Holiday Law provides comprehensive guidance to the law as it relates to different forms of holiday and travel, including package holidays and independent travel.
