The most important obstacles to the operation of travel agencies and our proposals to solve them.

The Association of Hungarian Travel Agencies, MUISZ, has been representing the interests of its members and tourism industry stakeholders since its foundation in 1974.

The significant role of MUISZ is proven by the fact that its two hundred members’ business activity covers over 80% of organized tourism in Hungary.

All major tour operators are among the members as well as small travel agencies.

Besides lobbying, MUISZ organizes events such as lectures and seminars for tourism professionals and communicates to the public and the press.
