Poland: Tourists hesitate as travel agents go under
Times are tough for travel agents in Poland, with holidaymakers spooked after a spate of firms went bust.
Eight Polish travel firms have gone under since the start of July. Those left are struggling to reassure nervous customers that they can book up with confidence.
“The bankruptcies that we have heard about in the media made clients afraid that if they buy a holiday tour they might not get their money back or they won’t get to go on holiday or they might even be unable to return from their holidays,” said Elzbieta Strawa, a travel agent at the Rainbow Tours company in Warsaw.
