EU Passenger Rights
The National Transport Authority (NTA) is the designated enforcement body for:
- Regulation 181/2011 concerning the rights of passengers when travelling by bus or coach.
- Regulation 1177/2010 concerning the rights of passengers when travelling by sea and inland waterway.
- EC Regulation 1371/2007 concerning the rights of passengers travelling by rail.
This means the NTA’s role is to ensure that transport operators are treating all passengers as outlined in the regulations above.
How To Make a Complaint
The passenger should direct their complaint to the relevant carrier, operator or the NTA if they believe their rights have been infringed.
To ensure the NTA can deal with your complaint quickly, please email email@example.com, attaching a copy of all communication between you and the operator, as well as your address and contact information.
You should keep the originals of all communications you share with the NTA.
