Whether strikes, natural catastrophes or political unrest – crises abroad also affect German holidaymakers. It is part of our mission to coordinate an industrywide crisis and security management for tourism operators.
Our Association is therefore in close contact with tour operators, the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs – which assesses the security situation for Germans abroad – and other government authorities. Together we analyze the situation and, if necessary, coordinate measures to protect travellers by providing quick and ef- fi cient action. In addition, we keep the media and the public informed about possible effects of such incidents.
