Frankfurt / Main (dpa / tmn) - Cruise with obstacles: If one of the beds in a two-person cabin is not immediately accessible, the guest can request a little money back. This is the case, for example, when a vacationer first has to cross another bed or squeeze past it, as a judgment of the Frankfurt am Main Regional Court shows (file number: 2-24 S 216/18).

In the negotiated case, the plaintiff could only get to her bed through a narrow gap at the foot of the other bed - according to the court, a lack of travel. Because the beds in a cabin for two people would have to be arranged in such a way that both travelers can effortlessly get and leave their beds - without waking the other one. A small gap is not enough.

The regional court awarded the plaintiff a travel price reduction of five percent: 343.80 euros for a travel price of 6,876 euros. The German Association for Travel Law reports on the verdict in the magazine “ReiseRecht aktuell” (issue 6/2019).
