From now on, accommodation providers can reclaim 80 percent of their loss of revenue for their bookings between November 11 and December 10. Stakeholders can apply for the support through the interface of the National Tourist Information Center (NTAK) by filling in an electronic form, which will be disbursed by the Hungarian Tourism Agency (MTÜ) later this year, the MTÜ told MTI on Thursday.

The statement recalls that the government has once again taken immediate steps to help the tourism sector, and a few days after the prime minister’s announcement, detailed rules for applying for the aid were published. Compensation will be paid to all accommodations registered with NTAK if at least one booking has been received by November 8 for the period between November 11 and December 10. The recoverable amount is 80 percent of the net revenue from fixed bookings. The aid is conditional on the workers not being made redundant and the workers receiving their pay for this period. (MTI)
