Swiss Ferderal Court: yacht charter including crew does not constitute a travel package

Michael Wukoschitz's picture

In a recent judgment, the Swiss Federal Court (Bundesgericht) had to decide whether the charter of a yacht including the crew would qualify as a travel package. The Court pointed out that providing a crew only was a supplementary element such as providing a pilot in air transportation. Further the yacht charter contract did not include any specific travel as it was completely up to the consumers how to use the yacht and where to got to.
