The Hungarian Competition Authority (GVH) found that the operator of open-air entertainment venue Budapest Park acted unlawfully when it did not inform consumers about the extra costs of ticket prices in its advertisements, writes novekedes.hu.
Budapest Park's website, social network, and online advertisements did not indicate all the factors influencing the price of tickets, so consumers could only find out the amount to be paid at a late stage in the purchase.
As the company corrected the deceptive practice, which was its first infringement, the authority said it merely issued a warning in this instance.
