PIU work on a new law on tourist services

Polish Insurance Association supports the idea of a Travel Security Fund (FZT) – a mechanism for protecting clients against unfair travel agencies. The fund would be based on contributions paid by all tour operators. The contribution will depend on a type of service – the highest would be paid for a customer who is sent on charter trip, less for the client sent on a bus trip or youth trip. This system would complement the current model of the guarantee provided by commercial insurers. The guarantee would remain the basis for the system. PIU also proposes that the charter tour operators could operate only as joint-stock companies – perhaps with a larger amount than the statutorily required 0.5 million PLN. From this point of view, charter tour oparators are most likely to announce the bankruptcy.
