Tour operators continue to cancel foreign programs
Two leading tour operators, Coral Travel and Sunmar, have fulfilled the recommendation of the Federal Tourism Agency and stopped the tours with departure dates from March 23 to April 20.
“The amount of money received by the tour operator for the canceled tour will be counted as payment for the new selected tour. The period of possible use is until December 31, 2021,” the newsletter for travel agencies reported. Transfer of funds for a new tour with the same tourists is carried out at the exchange rate on the day the tour operator receives payment for the canceled application. If the cost of a new tour is higher than canceled, an additional charge will be required.
On March 20, several tour operators announced the cancelation of their foreign programs.
