What is needed are properly functioning rules on online market search, transparency of prices and reviews, use and ownership of customer data and access to digital products and services.

Taxation 

Taxation at local, national, and EU level, has a direct impact on consumer prices and therefore, the competitiveness of Europe vis-à-vis other regions. Europe needs more coordinated action on a smart and fair taxation of tourism in Europe.
