1000+ for tourism. What is that?
According to the Minister of Development, Jadwiga Emilewicz:
Crisis staff for the tourism industry
The Ministry of Development is preparing an aid package for the tourism industry. For this purpose, a crisis team was created for the industry most affected by the coronavirus epidemic. This staff was appointed during a meeting of representatives of the tourism industry with Minister Jadwiga Emilewicz and vice-minister of development Andrzej Gut-Mostowy.
"We want to work with you - the broadly understood tourism industry - to develop and prepare support instruments, and implement them effectively, in order to survive this crisis moment calmly."
1000 plus vouchers. For whom and from when?
The preliminary design of anti-crisis solutions for the tourism industry assumes the distribution of vouchers worth PLN 1,000. each. They are to be vouchers to be issued for any event related to domestic tourism. As of today, it is not known when it will be possible to use 1000+ vouchers, or who exactly will be able to use the program.
According to the Minister, work on the project started at the beginning of the epidemic. It is not known when they will be specified and implemented. We hope that not only hotels and their guests will be able to benefit from government support, but also the short-term rental sector, including holiday apartments by the sea.

Fighting the crisis requires joint action
The situation in which we found ourselves due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic is unprecedented in post-war world history. We are on the verge of a great economic crisis, the effects of which everyone will feel without exception. At the same time, the tourism industry is one of the first to suffer the most and if the epidemic does not end before the upcoming season, many tourism companies may not survive.
To mitigate the economic impact of the epidemic, concerted action by tourists, hoteliers and government is needed. We count on specific support from the state, but we also ask our guests and all tourists from our country not to give up on booked trips and, if possible, change the dates of their stay.
We are open to any suggestions and we approach each client very flexibly. We do not expect everyone to be ready to postpone their holiday by the sea, but ask for a rational approach to cancellation.
We support the action with all our strength and heart #ZmienTerminNieOdwoluj
