  • Les voyagistes français ont annoncé le report de tous les départs prévus jusqu'au 31 mars en raison de la pandémie de Covid-19

Une décision a été prise "devant l'impossibilité d'assurer les prestations à destination et l'incertitude des retours", a expliqué le Seto (syndicat des tour-opérateurs) et les Entreprises du Voyage (agences de voyages). Ils doivent aussi composer avec les restrictions drastiques de vol décidées par les compagnies aériennes. "Pour mars, cela représente quelque 100 000 clients". Ces derniers bénéficieront d'un " à-valoir jusqu'au 31 décembre 2020 inclus au minimum ". "Les tour-opérateurs en informent leurs clients dans les meilleurs délais", est-il indiqué. "Et pour avril, ce sont 350 000 clients" qui ont prévu de partir, a précisé René-Marc Chikli, président du Seto.

Par ailleurs, et pour répondre aux demandes massives de remboursement en numéraire et " à un contexte de forte tension sur leur trésorerie", les professionnels du tourisme affirment avoir été entendus par Bruno Le Maire, qu'ils ont rencontré ce lundi matin.
