This Twitter thread cracked me up. Some big players recently got told off for similar behaviour to this by the UK regulators. I am surprised this doesn’t seem to be illegal EU-wide or if it is that they’re getting away with it.
I think I read somewhere that this was flat-out illegal in Germany. It’s not just travel sites though, many e-commerce websites seem to be using similar dark patterns and I have seen extensions for Shopify and WordPress that make these up at totally random.
What do you make of this kind of behaviour?
