Sabine Kirschner's fighting for her travel Agency in Garmisch-Partenkirchen | Garmisch-Partenkirchen

Long Sabine Kirschner will not make it. Then you have to your beloved tourist office in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, out of business. Daughter Leah started an Online rescue. The response overwhelmed both: More than 6000 euros have already been received.

Garmisch-Partenkirchen – Three days, Sabine Kirschner has only cried. Probably were in sum more. However, in the three days after you applied for the job centre basic security, as the tears flowed virtually non-stop. As long as you needed to understand all of this. You, the forwards for the last 15 years, your travel Agency at the Josef square in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. It comes from the healthy middle class. You might suddenly need Hartz IV. "This is all a disaster."

A Sabine Kirschner, the laughs, the "brutal existence, fears of" plagues, of come the tears when she talks about the future – so no one knows you. Good humor and optimism belong to her. "I'm a basic positive person." Hard, this property is placed just on the sample. Just as it fits to the 55-Year-old, to ask for financial help, to call for a rescue screen for travel agents. Now she's doing it. You feared that you and your colleagues will be forgotten, because the Great cries of their and other industries, louder and louder. Without help, they don't know how to go on. With your Download, you called your life. "I don't want to lose him."

For 30 years, Kirschner for "The travel corner" works at the Gries road, in 2005, she took over the business. Some of the disasters and related travel-tourism-crises it has experienced. The terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001, the Tsunami in Thailand for Christmas 2004. "I thought it can't get any worse." Then the Corona came from. No, only the Thomas-Cook Broke a few months ago. The there was also. You ate reserves. "We have just mastered."

and Then Corona came. Only a few know what is meant by the pandemic and the measures for travel agencies. They live exclusively from commissions. Tour operators such as TUI transfer per booked offer a percentage of Kirschner and co. Some pay on receipt of the booking, some of them, as soon as the customer starts his journey. In the Corona-a reality that means thousands of dollars in commissions, has not had to return Kirschner, the other gets you. Since October, she and many colleagues have earned nothing. Because in the autumn of the first bookings for the spring of 2020, many of the holiday for the Easter came.

How much has so far lost, estimates Kirschner only. "Tens Of Thousands Of Euros." Carefully, she refunds all of the back and absence of commissions does not compute. "Otherwise I will fall into the deepest depression."

The Drama began with the Shutdown on 16. In March, three days before Kirschner's birthday. As she is busy with the Refund. Much of her time is spent with phone Calls and Advice. Your customers have many questions to travel around posted summer. Has cancelled this nobody. There is currently a travel warning applies only to 14. June. Who cancels the holiday now, will have to pay the cancellation fees – usually between 30 and 40 percent.

Some customers report just as in the case of Kirschner, ask how she's doing. Many of you have cared for for years, and some for the grandparents, the children and now the grandchildren are traveling together. Some of them come over, bring words of encouragement, good wishes. And the promise that We will stay faithful to you. "The build total."

but in The end you need something you can sell. Holiday in Germany helps to your industry little. Virtually no one goes to a travel Agency with the request "find me a Hotel in the Bavarian forest". With air travel and cruises, travel agencies make their money. When this business starts up again, nobody knows.

For the autumn holidays Kirschner currently has zero entries. Longer than two, max three months, you will not keep without the bailout through. "Before I go to my pension, I need to lock up." The very last step. "I'll give everything that I survive."

For a few days, you can help everyone. Daughter Leah Kirschner (23) launched a campaign for her mother. On the Online platform "Go Fund Me" describes the Situation and is hoping for donations under the title "Save my mom and her travel corner". The response so far – is enormous. 6185 Euro came together to Sunday lunch from 80 donors. Mom and daughter can hardly believe it. With a part of the Garmisch-Partenkirchen, kirchnerin want to pay the rent for your Shop, adopted by the owner of the house to her for the difficult time.

Kirschner is overwhelmed by so much willingness to help. Her tears come again. Their daughter wanted to prevent exactly that. Active she was, "because you couldn't see me cry".
