Whether you are an attorney or a member of the travel industry, Travel Law will help you get the red-carpet treatment in court! This unique reference, cited in both CondeNast Traveler magazine and The New York Times Sunday Travel Section, discusses the traveler's rights and remedies against airlines, cruise lines, hotels and resorts, rental car companies, railroads, time-share facilities, theme parks, casinos, tour operators, travel agents and Internet travel sellers.Travel Law shows you how to: use contracts between operators and suppliers to the traveler's advantage; overcome disclaimers of liability in agreements imposed on travelers; employ state long-arm statutes to obtain jurisdiction over foreign travel suppliers; use the Warsaw and Montreal Conventions—frequently invoked by airlines to limit their liability—to the travelers benefit; and more. You'll find out about: travel consumer class action procedures and tactics; settling class actions with coupons or credits; holding hotels and airlines responsible for overbooking; "bumping"; and the impact of terrorism on the travel industry.
Travel Law keeps you up to date on new legislation, including the DOT Enhanced Passenger Protection Rules and the Cruise Vessel Security and Safety Act of 2010, as well as significant cases, on both the federal and state levels.
