Gone bust and blank g brexit. I think they have had bigger problems before brexit.

For starters they Moved the company to Spain and flight companies told tourists that flights won't be protected under atol like they are in the UK. This must have been a bigger hit than brexit

Yeah they are ducking and diving mate IMO. Can't blame a brexit vote from just 3 weeks ago that won't come into effect for at least 2 years yet.
Can't blame the £ v € decline either, they ought to be minted what with the higher exchange rate for most of last year.
To collapse in peak season as well with hotels bulging at the seams is daft.
But who books with a company without ATOL anyway? Not me. No

i booked my hotel through them for this october, claiming it back through the credit card.

phoned the hotel and got them to honour the booking, at the price they had agreed with the LCH so actually a bit cheaper for me.

Thats good Dave glad its getting sorted. The last I read of it was that people were entitled to £7.50 ???????? that cannot be right surely.

Its not the first holiday company this guy that has gone bust either and according to this post people are only entitled to 1p to 2p per pound back http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/under-fire-lowcostholidays-boss-linked-8481612

Also the guy is now receiving death threats after a 140,000 people have lost their holiday http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/business/boss-lowcostholidays-receives-death-threats-8475514

thats the estimate people would get back as a creditor.

But if you paid on mastercard they are allowing chargebacks which gets the money back due to breach of agent contract.

visa are being a bit more difficult it seems.

my holiday is going ahead thats all that matters, the german beer tent in santa ponsa just wouldnt be same without me

I think that's about right. He's knowingly scammed people. Bar steward.
