Travel Industry

We ensure summer, sunshine and secure bookings

Despite the economic crisis, the travel industry is continuing to grow. In fact, not only are Germans among the world’s top travellers, but Germany itself is a popular destination for international tourists. More and more guests are choosing to book with providers directly online, and most research about holiday destinations and hotel options occurs on the web too. Taking this situation into account, Spirit Legal LLP offers advice on a range of specialist areas. These include:

  • Competition and advertising law, in particular SEO, SEM and newsletters
  • Social media, user-generated content, reviews and reputation management
  • IT security of global distribution systems (GDSs), internet booking engines (IBEs) and other web services
  • Electronic payment systems and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)
  • International regulations on pricing information , information requirements and vendor registration
  • International contracts, labour, tenancy and corporate law for providers
  • Warranty, liability and claims for damages

We advise online travel agencies (OTAs), hotels, tour operators, destinations as well as advertising agencies and coupon portals on aspects such as how to protect their brand online, the legally certain design of booking processes and responsible handling of customer data. Get in touch with us!
