< /p>Another “bottleneck” caused by post-COVID staff problems, due to which Europe continues to plunge into a tourist frenzy, and tourists upon arrival face “further tourism chaos”, has been found in Europe. We are talking about taxi services, as well as the problems of carsharing: all this, just like airlines, airports and hotel services, is starting to give huge disruptions – now tourists stand in lines for hours to get a taxi or a car for rent.
< p>The “post-covid syndrome” in the form of a lack of drivers and cars, and therefore huge delays and queues, overtook tourists at the airports of Mallorca and Ibiza. Problems with long queues for taxis have also been reported in other tourist destinations, including Barcelona, Costa del Sol and Palma.
Representatives of aggregators blamed the problem on the lack of drivers. Bill Moragues, president of the taxi association, told the Majorca Daily Bulletin: “There is no solution in the short term. This is madness. Everything is overloaded, everything is unstable. This has never happened before. We cannot handle all the traffic,” the expert said. According to his calculations, about 500 drivers are missing in Mallorca alone, and in Ibiza the problem is twice as bad.
There are also problems with public transport. Recall that on the other side of Europe, in Dublin, tourists were warned about the insanely expensive carsharing. The problem is also in the pandemic – in two years, companies have greatly reduced their car fleet.
Meanwhile, tourists, frightened by the general chaos, continue to “give tickets” and cancel tours. Read the details at the link.
