It is a horror scenario for vacationers: while they linger in the sunny vacation home, the tour operator goes bankrupt. Suddenly there are no return flights, vacationers are stuck in the hotels. Hundreds of thousands have only recently experienced this - after the bankruptcy of the British tour operator Thomas Cook in autumn 2019. In addition, it seemed unclear whether customers would be fully reimbursed for the costs of trips they had already booked. The security payments were not sufficient. Now package holidaymakers are to be better protected from the bankruptcies of the organizers.
