We recognise that these are extremely challenging conditions for businesses in the tourism sector, including travel management companies. We continue to closely monitor

the situation.

Travel management companies have been able to access the Government’s comprehensive economic support package, including the Coronavirus Jobs Retention Scheme, VAT deferrals, as well as various generous loan schemes. We are continuing to engage across Government and with stakeholders to assess how we can most effectively support the recovery of travel and tourism across the UK.
