UK holiday company collapse

UK holiday company Goldtrail collapsed yesterday with 16,000 customers left stranded overseas and future holidays under threat. There is also anger regarding the fact that many customers were left waiting with no news at various airports around the UK, despite the fact that the company had collapsed hours earlier. So what next for stranded holidaymakers?

The Civil Aviation Authority is currently looking at making arrangements to fly stranded passengers back to the UK under the ATOL scheme. So in theory, while there has been severe inconvenience, the vast majority of those stranded overseas should be back in the UK very soon. However, the situation regarding those with holidays booked for the future through Goldtrail will be very different and advice should be sought regarding potential compensation.

This is the first holiday company collapse for sometime in the UK although it appears there have been serious reservations about the company in question for some time. However, quite what prompted the sudden collapse of the company remains to be seen although there will likely be some form of investigation to see if lessons can be learned. Whether this will be the first of a number similar collapses in the short to medium term is of serious concern.
