      That's a shame. We have had a few holidays with them- all of them good.

        Such a shame. I fear they won’t be the only holiday company to suffer this fate.

              The business model still has potential for another UK operator to pick up..

              The coach and UK hotel network could be quite a lucrative market if overseas travel goes off peoples agenda.

                    David Urquhart filed for a Creditors Voluntary Agreement 2 or 3 weeks ago. At least the client's money was ring-fenced.

                      Just a sign of the times. So sad as it means people are losing their jobs and their livelihoods. When will it ever end ?

                        I must admin that I am surprised how fragile these companies are. Two months without any trade and in many cases it all seem to be over.

                        I had thought that they might be a little more resilient.

                          Last took a holiday with them in October 2018 to Lake Como in Italy,

                          Took this photo during a days excursion, we had been on the Bernina train from Italy to St Moritz in Switzerland, we were picked up by coach at St Moritz fir the return journey and stopped at this viewing area of the Molojapass in Switzerland.

                          The Lady wearing the partly red jacket in the photo was one of our two drivers (husband and wife), in her hands are bottles of champagne, although only in plastic glasses, all the passengers were given a glass of champagne to drink whilst enjoying the view.

                            A lot of companies run on debt, siphon off the cash and have very little long term contingency.

                            Look at the cruise lines they have had to raise billions to pay the bills.

                            Airlines have been using their cash to buy their own shares so have no cash to see them through.

                            Travel companies/agents have a lot of forward booking cash as debt on their books.
