How does the "Euro Guarantee" work in the EU

Many people buy goods or services while on holiday in other EU countries with the assumption that they can rely on a so-called “euro guarantee”. However, this does not exist under any applicable legislation. And even if a manufacturer or a chain store has a branch in the Czech Republic, this does not automatically mean that their local representative will accept a cross-border claim. Because the terms and conditions of guarantees vary in the European countries, it is a good idea for consumers to acquaint themselves with these conditions in advance.
