Impact of COVID-19 on Global Travel Intermediaries: Hot Topic Brief - Issue 6

Summary
COVID-19, commonly referred to as the Coronavirus, is dominating headlines the world over. The travel & tourism sector is suffering significant disruption and intermediaries are very much affected.

Key Highlights
- COVID-19 has had colossal impacts on the travel and tourism sector. Change is undeniable. When this pandemic first began to emerge, collaboration was urged throughout the sector to battle through this warlike period against COVID-19.
- Since then there have been many examples of collaboration across industries, most recently the COVID Travelers Database formed by online travel firms, hotels and airlines to support the recovery of the tourism industry.
- Safety guidelines and health protocols however are a different story. Governments, destinations, public health bodies, private companies, etc. continue to roll out their own protocols. Trade industry bodies UNWTO and WTTC have both released guidance on post-pandemic protocols – both recognize and applaud the others’ standards but still offer differing information.
- Throughout any crisis, there is opportunity – in this case greater collaboration was possible across major trade industry bodies to form a united approach to tackle COVID-19 and prepare for tourism recovery. There is still time for an initiative to roll out that may unite this sector.
