The Slovakian company VIP WINGS which operated the Danube wings airlines, was declared bankrupt. We advise consumers who purchased flight tickets via debit or credit card, but never flew nor got their money back, to ask their card provider for so called chargeback that would return the money paid to the bank account. Note that in most countries banks are not obliged to carry out chargeback by law, but according to ECC CZ experience they are willing to do so.

It's a big summer sale courtesy of the European Commission! From 1 July 2014, the EU will cut the price caps for data downloads by more than half: down from 45 cents per megabyte to 20c/MB. It will become even cheaper to use maps, watch videos, check mails and update social networks while travelling across the EU.
In the survey on the homepage of this website we ask questions concerning protection of consumer rights. You cannot win anything but a good feeling from correct answer. And the correct answers are presented in the news column after the poll question changes.
