- Operators are hit exceptionally hard during this crisis. They are subject to the law, that makes them extra vulnerable in the current situation. A tour operator is after the pakkerejseloven obliged to reimburse to the traveler the entire package price if it is cancelled, so we are in the situation that we need to pay a lot of money back, which we paid on. We will have to stop now, because the government has not given us an offer, says Lars Thykier, adm. director of the Danish Travel agency Association.
In the background, the DRF's own assessment of the necessary temporary suspension of the repayment schedule of 14 days in pakkerejseloven, until there is clarity over what the government will do to help rejsebureaubranchen.
- We hope-of course, there is someone who pitieth us, but if not the government do anything very quickly, so we estimate that the rejsebureaubranchen as a whole in danger of bankruptcy, and it will well be 5000 jobs, which will be substantiated, " says Lars Thykier for the Extra Magazine.
