The European Consumer Center Germany informs and advises German consumers on their rights in cross-border issues. It offers advice and assistance on various consumer issues, such as the rights of airline passengers in the event of delays or non-delivery of goods from other European countries. All services of the European Consumer Center are offered free of charge and are sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection.
The APP to the EU abroad is aimed specifically at young people who want to travel alone, without parents to the EU abroad. It helps with good preparation and also provides on-site support with important questions such as "When do I need my parents' declaration of consent?" or "How do I get medical help in an emergency?". The functions are available for a total of 15 EU countries, from which the personal travel destination can be selected via an intuitive user interface.
There are nine thematic categories to choose from for each of the countries. Young people learn what rules apply in their vacation country, for example, regarding the consumption of alcohol, and how they can solve problems during their trip, for example, due to flight delays or lost luggage. In addition, the most important sights and popular events are listed for each country. Since young travelers usually have little money at their disposal, the apps also provides tips on how to save money.
In addition to the categories, a checklist function is also available, which can be extended individually. Items that should not be forgotten on the packing list, such as an ID card and health insurance card, can be entered here. In the emergency call section, the central emergency call number of the country can be found. The app is free of charge and all functions can also be used offline.
