Macko added that Slovakia lacks a ministry whose portfolio covers all aspects of tourism. Currently, tourism is mainly dealt with by the Transport, Construction and Regional Development Ministry, the TASR newswire wrote.
Macko went on to bring up the issue of the solvency of tourism agencies, noting that an insurance requirements apply to all SACKA members.
“This is the first pre-requisite for giving assurances to clients that they won’t lose their money, because if insolvency strikes, they can rely on one of four insurance companies that have this type of product in their portfolio,” said Macko, as quoted by TASR, pointing to an increase in the number of entities providing services in tourism contrary to the law.
