Conclusion The aim of this paper was to give a general overview of tourism law in Slovenia. It can be concluded that administrative laws regulating the tourism sector are relatively detailed and extensive in contrast to statutory provisions in the area of private law. The statutory framework on tourism contracts is rather outdated with the exception of provisions of the Consumer Protection Act transposing the Package Travel Directive and the Timeshare Directive into Slovenian law. It should also be noted that there is a lack of statutory provisions dealing with tourism-related contracts of individual travellers, who organise their trip and book tourist services on their own. It is probably needless to say that COVID- 19 pandemic brought many challenges to the tourism sector, which will have long term consequences. In this regard, several intervention laws have been adopted in order to facilitate the position of tourism workers and tourism industry as such. In the light of these measures it will also be interesting to observe how statutory framework and case law in the area of tourism will develop in the future. 40 For instance, the host is liable if the car left in the garage or in the host’s fenced and guarded parking lot has disappeared or been damaged.
