Klára Dvořáková at the COTakhle Snídaně (How About Breakfast) to Prepare Tour Operators for an Amendment to Act No. 159/1999 Coll.

27/02/2019

Advocate Klára Dvořáková, from Holubová advokáti s.r.o., received an invitation to the COTakhle snídaně (How about breakfast) to discuss the impact of the amendment to Act No. 159/1999 Coll., and to insurance in tourism. The meeting took place in the Economic Chamber of the Czech Republic.

The discussion also featured Renata Králová, Director of the Tourism Department of the Ministry of Regional Development; Roman Škrabánek, President of the Association of Tour Operators and Travel Agents of the Czech Republic; and Zdeněk Kříž, Vice-President of the Association of Travel Agencies of the Czech Republic.

Klára Dvořáková spoke about the readiness (or unpreparedness) of travel agencies and agencies to amendment to Act No. 159/1999 Coll., among other things. "In my life, during the summer season, I did not provide so many consultations to travel agencies and agencies as it was last year after the amendment to the law. And I can safely say that by far not all travel agencies and agencies were able to implement an amendment by 1 July. Indeed, for all players, it means that they have to audit their products, financial charges and contract documents, And for the most part, it was unrealistic. If someone was completely ready, then maybe big players who had invested a lot of money in advance. Many of the others then solved it all at the last minute, at the end of June, when it was unrealistic to get everything done. " (COT business, No. 2/2019, pp. 8-9)
