If like Santa, you have travel plans this Christmas, then it’s important to know your passenger rights should something go wrong, says the Consumer Council.
Now the weather has turned frosty and people are pulling out the winter woollies, the Consumer Council is urging consumers to get a copy of its ‘Weather the Winter’ leaflet to be winter ready in the event of severe weather.

The Consumer Council has today revealed that despite positive signs emerging in the wider economy, these are not filtering through to consumers, with 70 per cent not yet feeling the green shoots of economic recovery.
Consumer Council welcomes Supreme Court decisions on compensation for flight delays and cancellation
The Consumer Council welcomes the landmark air decisions by the Supreme Court last week which confirms the rights of passengers caught out by flight delays and cancellations.
The Consumer Council is pleased to see improvements in punctuality across all services following today’s publication of Translink’s Charter Monitoring Results for Spring 2014.
A proposal to make motor and home insurance renewal quotes easier for customers to compare has been welcomed by the Consumer Council.
Consumer Council research has revealed that consumers can save up to 60 per cent by pre-booking on-site long stay airport car parking instead of paying at the gate.
