The European Consumer Centre (ECC) is located in the counselling centre of the Association for Consumer Information (VKI) in Vienna's 6th district, at Mariahilferstraße 81. The entrance is at the back of the inner courtyard of number 81, next to the entrance to the Stadtsaal Theatre.

Do not forget to bring your FFP2 mask to the consultation and please wear it when you come in!

Personal consultation at Mariahilferstraße 81: 

A lawyer from the ECC will discuss your problem with the foreign company and go through the documents you have brought with you, explain your legal situation and make recommendations on how to proceed. If an intervention by the ECC seems appropriate in your case, certain documents will be required. It is helpful if you have already printed out your correspondence with the company that is violating your rights. Also necessary for a successful intervention are invoices, booking confirmations etc. concerning the case. It is possible to copy / scan these documents on site.
