ZAGREB, August 28, 2020 – The good results of this year’s summer tourist season have not contributed to tour operators’ business and their revenue has dropped by more than 80%, which is why they expect the state to continue with its job-keeping scheme, the UHPA tour operators association said on Friday.

“The drop in revenue in the past two months exceeds 80%… The current epidemiological situation is also working against us and we estimate that most tour operators cannot realise a turnover that will enable them to keep jobs and maintain liquidity,” UHPA president Tomislav Fain said.

In a comment on good tourism figures, which stand at 50% of last year’s results, Fain said that it should not be forgotten that tourism is not only about arrivals and overnight stays and that it is a complex sector involving various stakeholders many of whom, including tour operators, do not depend exclusively on the tourist season.

Fain said that UHPA supports the continuation of the government’s job-keeping aid as well as dealing with many outstanding issues tour operators are faced with, and that the existing safety protocols should be implemented as soon as possible and Croatia should be promoted as a destination where all epidemiological measures are complied with.
