Which argues four airlines still flout EU laws on bundling

Four airlines Easyjet, Jet2, Monarch and Air Berlin are automatically adding travel insurance during the booking process, consumer group Which reports, claiming this flouts EU laws.

It claims they are ignoring an EU ruling that states that airlines cannot automatically add extras such as insurance at the time of booking.

Easyjet, Jet2 and Monarch all automatically add travel insurance policies, costing between £7 and £10.49 per passenger, while cancellation insurance for flights returning on the same day is added automatically by Air Berlin, costing €12 (£10.63). Consumers have to un-tick a box to opt out of the insurance, Which said.
