The second lockdown is already a reality: over 28 billion euros less at travel agencies and tour operators in the till
The economic situation of the German travel industry is deteriorating dramatically due to the corona crisis. After a slight increase in bookings during the summer holidays, the volume of vacation and business travel is now collapsing again as in the spring of this year. The losses are increasing from month to month and hundreds of thousands of jobs are at stake at around 2,300 tour operators and 11,000 travel agencies in Germany. The German Travel Association (DRV) draws attention to this and is expecting a drop in sales of over 28 billion euros for tour operators and travel agencies from March to the end of the year. This corresponds to a drop in sales of around 80 percent.
The travel industry is already experiencing a second lockdown due to travel restrictions and quarantine regulations. For this reason, the travel industry demonstrates together with the event industry on Wednesday, October 28th in Berlin to illustrate the dramatic situation of travel providers, agents and tourist service providers such as rental car companies, reservation system providers and airports under the motto “Five after twelve”.

“We take our social responsibility with regard to health protection and risk minimization very seriously and apply extensive hygiene and safety measures for holidays and business trips. This is also the reason why package tours, for example, are comparatively safe and at no time have contributed significantly to the rising virus infections in Germany. If the federal government forces the industry into lockdown through a zigzag course on test and quarantine rules or through the chaos in connection with the ban on accommodation, it must also ensure the appropriate economic support for the industry, “warns DRV President Norbert Fiebig further help for the German travel industry with its almost 3 million jobs.
