#EUelections2019 - Geo-blocking
Event date: 10/04/2019
As of 3 December 2018, Europeans are able to shop online without unjustified geo-blocking, wherever they are in the EU.
For citizens this means that they are able to buy their new electrical goods online, rent a car or get their concert tickets across borders as they do at home. Consumers no longer face barriers such as being asked to pay with a debit or credit card issued in another country. For businesses, this means more legal certainty to operate cross-border.
