Drivers to be able to work 12 days in a row


If transport ministers in the EU member states support recent amendments to EU legislation, bus drivers will be able to work for 12 days in succession. The tour operators Averoja and Latvia Tours claim that package prices will not be raised in such case. Previously, the European Commission had planned to allow bus drivers only six days’ work in succession, but bus drivers protested that their right to earn would be limited. According to experts in the travel trade, a 12-day trip is one of the most favoured models for tours in Europe, especially for pensioners, students and visitors from developing countries. European bus drivers will now be allowed to work for 12 days in succession if the journey takes place across several countries.
