Case number:

Vj-44/2006

Type of case:

Deception of consumers

Undertaking(s) concerned:

Club Karaván and CKI & Partner's

Description:

The Competition Council concluded that the information placed on the homepage of the Club Karaván regarding the air-conditioning of the caravans offered for rent was misleading. The Club Karaván falsely alleged that the caravans come with air-conditioning, whereas only air circulating systems were installed in the vehicles. The same infringement was committed by CKI & Partner's, an undertaking pursuing its activities on commission by Club Karaván. Yet another infringement was committed by Club Karaván by indicating on its homepage that the caravans were of a value of HUF 4,5 million respectively although it was not true.

Decision:

Club Karaván and CKI & Partner's infringed the provisions on the prohibition of unfair manipulation of consumer choice of the Hungarian Competition Act. The Competition Council imposed a fine of HUF 500.000 (approx. EUR 1800) on Club Karaván. No fine was imposed on CKI & Partner's.
