Financial package worth up to £9 million for Scotland’s tourism sector announced

Following today’s announcement by the Tourism Minister Ivan McKee that the Scottish Government has finalised a financial package worth up to £9 million for Scotland’s tourism sector, UKInbound’s CEO Joss Croft has commented:-

“This is a vital lifeline for Scotland’s inbound tourism industry. We’re very pleased that the Scottish Government has recognised the devastating impact Omicron is having on the tourism industry and its supply chain and is rolling out an additional £9 million financial package. In stark contrast, Westminster continues to leave the inbound tourism industry out in the cold, ignoring the crippling impact of international restrictions on inbound tour operators and the need for tailored financial support, which threatens the recovery of the UK’s fifth-largest export industry.”

It has over 300 members including tour operators, destination management companies, accommodation providers, attractions, destination marketing organisations and service providers including restaurants, transport, retail, ticketing and professional services. UKinbound addresses and engages with Government, the media, travel trade and the general public to raise awareness of inbound tourism’s significant impact on the UK economy and drives a return for its members
