The harmful consequences of Covid-19 mostly influenced the Tourist sector worldwide. The negative trends shaped the fearful reality for all related businesses and involved parties and let them face the challenge to overcome this cruel environment of existence and streamline their future survival and development. To prevent the companies from the environmental threats, and to support their recovery and future stable existence, many different measures at national and regional level were taken. The paper aims at clarifying the influence and efficiency of the carried-out measures in the Tourist sector. The applied methodology is based on the comparative analysis. For this purpose, an online research was conducted in two different periods, and the data was registered through questionnaires containing three structured thematic blocks. The sample consists of 73 representatives, presented by different parties from the Tourist sector in the Plovdiv region. The survey was conducted in the period of April 2020 – April 2021. The provided conclusions and recommendations could serve all institutions at national and regional level, as well as business organizations in their policies. The policy makers and the policy recipients could both benefit from the results of the study in order to reply adequately to the challenges of the surrounding environment and consumer requirements, and thus, to be able to adapt their business and marketing strategies.
