Travel agency as tour operator? Why not take advantage of the Package Travel Directive!

This seminar is aimed at existing and prospective travel agencies who would also like to act as tour operators. As a result of the Package Travel Directive, travel agencies will face considerably more administrative tasks and challenges from 01.07.2018. The risk of unintentionally becoming a tour operator as a travel agency will increase significantly with the Package Travel Directive. Why not simply take the offensive and not only protect yourself, but also make active use of the possibilities. The advantages are obvious. Your office has unique selling points: Offers that cannot be found in the competition. You certainly have special strengths and insider knowledge depending on the region or type of travel, make these your competitive advantage.
