"Nightmare for holidaymakers during peak season" as Late Rooms and Super Break stop trading

The parent company of travel firms Late Rooms and Super Break has stopped trading and will be calling in administrators.

Guy Anker, deputy editor of MoneySavingExpert.com said: “This is a nightmare for holidaymakers during peak season but there are ways to get your money back if your plans have been hit.

“If it’s a package holiday it’ll be protected under the ATOL or ABTA schemes. If it’s not a package, it’s worth putting in a claim with your card company as you may be able to get your money back.

“You may have paid for extras such as excursions or car hire. If you can’t travel, check if you can cancel them. If not, check if you can claim on your travel insurance – but be warned many cheaper policies may not cover you where a firm ceases trading.”
