The parent company of travel brands Super Break and LateRooms.com has collapsed, affecting tens of thousands of travellers.
Malvern Group announced that it has ceased trading and warned that Super Break customers currently on holiday may be asked to pay again for their hotel, while future bookings are cancelled.
Abta said the “vast majority of holidaymakers’ arrangements” will be covered through one of a number of different types of financial protection.
It understands Super Break had around 20,000 bookings involving approximately 53,000 people.
Around 400 people are currently on holiday but “they should be able to continue” with their trip as normal, Abta added.
