Course Aims:

The caselaw on excursions has developed enormously in the last few years. The Court of Appeal in particular has been active in the area, with Parker v TUI and Harrison v Jagged Globe clarifying tour operators’ liabilities for excursions sold in resort. However, the lower courts have not been idle either. In this podcast, travel law and personal injury expert Sarah Prager illustrates the differing approaches taken in the different courts and some of the arguments deployed in such cases.
