The founders of action group Target speak to Travel Weekly’s editor-in-chief in Westminster. Pole Travel’s Jill Waite and Westoe Travel’s Graeme Brett explain that the next two weeks will be make or break for agents.
Waite said: “In the past 16 months we have barely taken any revenue and yet we’ve had more work than ever. Even if we get a country on the green list this week we are still not going to make any money to pay staff wages in September when furlough ends.”
Brett added: “There has been a lot of lobbying in the last 15 months behind the scenes but we have not seen any results to help us get money in our pockets. We have to make ministers realise we really do exist.”
