Package Holiday Firms Cease Trading

Two package holiday firms have ceased trading. This will affect more than 50,000 travellers this year.

Malvern Group, which incorporates Manchester-based Late Rooms and York-based Superbreak Mini Holidays, known as Super Break, has ceased trading. A spokesperson said that Super Break hotel-only holidays would be cancelled and people currently on holiday might have to pay again, though they are protected by the travel association, Abta. ‘Anticipated’ bookings through Late Rooms, they said, will be secure.

However, vouchers and tickets for entertainment, attractions or the Incredible North Iceland Charter were no longer valid, it said.

Late Rooms, acting as an agent, had not taken money for bookings, which would be payable to the accommodation supplier direct, the company said.

Malvern said its contact centre has closed and it will  to appoint administrators today. They advise customers to contact Abta, their travel agent or their credit card provider for further help.

Abta has issued advice for customers of Super Break, but said it did not cover Late Rooms. It said that most arrangements by 

Super Break holidaymakers would be covered. 

They commented: ”These customers will either be entitled to a refund or, if they've booked through another travel company, they should contact them to discuss options which may include continuing with their booking, re-booking or alternative arrangements.”
