Bravo Tours, like the rest of the industry canceled all their contracts with the southern european hotels, because they have acted according to the guidelines that the government set out at the end of may, where it is stated that only Germany, Norway and Iceland were safe enough to travel to.

- On Mette Frederiksen's request, we have cancelled all flights and all hotels. All of our contracts, says Sidsel Nordestgaard.

- Are bitter about the course?

- We are not bitter, but it's going to cost the industry a lot of money. Already pakkerejsebranchen hit hard, and now we have ten days to something, we usually use a year.

- And we have many guests who are frustrated. They have booked a cottage, but would rather to Crete, tells Sidsel Nordestgaard.

Bravo Tours now offers the customers, who have been forced to cancel their travel back to the 31. august to book in new. And, so counting the travel agency to open for the sale of package tours on Friday, if they can reach to be ready for it.

- But we expect only to get 5-10 percent of what we originally had set us on. Hotelejerne have sold to others, including the germans, as well have had to travel, says Sidsel Nordestgaard.

Bravo Tours, which last year sent 148.031 guests off, will also only put the really sought-after destinations for sale.

- We are taking a big risk, if we cannot fill the planes, because people have been able to lay other plans.

- What is the most popular destination?

- the island of Crete. General of Greece, as they have performed great through the entire crisis, But we are also looking at Spain, which is always popular.

- When there are so few travel for sale, it becomes so much expensive?

- I don't know yet, but it is clear that when there are so few travel, so it may affect the price.

- If you are completely lost in the heat to get to, for example, Crete, how do you ensure as best that you get one of the few tickets? And is there tickets left, when your ’cancelled customers’ have been to the dish first?

- They are put up for sale as soon as possible - so keep an eye on our website. There should probably be seats - but how many is hard to say, says Sidsel Nordestgaard.
