More holiday chaos as firm collapses

By Nicola Cowell

HUNDREDS of Brits are stranded in Spain after holiday firm Sun4U collapsed yesterday.

The holiday company, which specialises in trips to the Spanish coast and Majorca, announced on their website at 9pm that they had ceased to trade.

It is not clear at this stage how 1200 Brits who are currently on holiday will get back to the UK.

Travel organisation Abta said those who had booked Atol (Air Travel Operators’ Licensing) package tours should be able to continue with their holidays as planned.

A spokesman said: “There are approximately 1,200 people away at the moment and most of them are in Spain.”

It is thought that the Birmingham-based company had struggled to recover losses brought about by the Icelandic ash cloud earlier in the year.

Holidaymakers with the firm have been advised to call the Civil Aviation Authority or claim handlers CEGA on 01243 621 500.

  1. How many more travel firms are going to go to the wall, i thought we had gone through the bad times now and we were out on the other side.

    It now makes you worried about booking with travel agents, i know i use to look at going for the smaller travel agent but now with all the companies going to the wall i always make sure i go for the biggest and that is to make sure the chances of them going bust is small
