The Consumer Council has urged any passengers due to travel to or from Spain today to contact their airline before leaving for the airport. It has also produced a factsheet to help passengers understand their rights if travel plans are disrupted. Copies are available by contacting the Consumer Council on 0800 121 6022, by emailing [email protected] or via www.consumercouncil.org.uk/publications, facebook or twitter.
The Consumer Council launched its new education resource ‘Understanding Payday Loans’ as part of World Consumer Rights Day today at Springvale Learning Centre. This comes against a backdrop of a 42 per cent increase in high interest lending since 2007 . ‘Understanding Payday Loans’ is the first consumer education resource in the UK that will help consumers get to grips with how payday loans operate and the costs associated with this type of borrowing. The lesson plans are primarily designed for adult education tutors and advice staff who are working with consumers in the community and voluntary sectors.
