It’s been a tough few months for everybody dealing with the fall out from the global pandemic.
We’ve all taken a hit in one way or another, but for those working in the travel industry it’s been particularly difficult. Many agents are not selling their usual flight and/or hotel offerings but have still been working hard helping clients to reschedule their plans and in some cases trying to recuperate their monies for them.
While a number of other businesses have had the opportunity to amend and adapt their product or service to fit the “new normal”, travel’s just not that way inclined.
The impact of Covid-19 has been striking and many jobs are said to be at stake – 3,500 people are employed in offices across the country to assist the masses with their movement plans, but up to 250,000 can link their employment to travel.
