ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the British Civil Aviation Authority's (CAA) legal action against online retailer Travel Republic. It is stated that the jury has still not decided about who pays for consumer protection and what it should include. According to Travel Counsellors chairman David Speakman, consumers should be protected for everything they buy, and ATOL Protection Contribution was only based on package holidays and it only defined what a package was after 16 years.
