Goldtrail collapse leaves Britons in Greece and Turkey

A British tour operator has collapsed leaving thousands of holidaymakers stranded abroad, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has said.

Greece and Turkey specialist Goldtrail, based in New Malden, Surrey, went into administration on Friday afternoon with an estimated 16,000 customers overseas.

The CAA said it was arranging to fly customers home after their holiday.

Goldtrail customers can call the CAA on 0203 4410846 for the latest information about the collapsed company.

Simon Calder, Travel editor for the Independent, told the BBC that the CAA had been working "
through the night"
to get alternative flights home arranged.

The CAA said flights home from Turkey would operate as normal but holidaymakers in Greece were warned to expect changes.

Those in Greece are advised to check with representatives at local airports.

Mr Calder said that "
tens of thousands"
of people who have yet to travel were affected.

"
There will be people waking up, hearing the news that Goldtrail has gone bust, thinking 'well, what's going to happen to my holiday?',"
he said.

"
I'm extremely sorry, it will not be going ahead, those flights will not be operating, you are going to have to join the queue to get your money back from the Civil Aviation Authority."


The CAA said there were no more outbound Goldtrail flights and it advised customers due to fly with the failed operator to check with their travel agent before travelling to the airport.

In a statement issued on its website, the aviation regulator said: "
The CAA has taken steps to protect customers booked with Goldtrail Travel Limited after the company ceased trading.

"
The CAA, under its ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licensing) scheme, is making arrangements for customers abroad to travel home at the end of their holidays."

Just been watching this on the news it always seems that these company's go but when they have all the money from the holiday makers which don't quite make sense ? I would have thought that at this time their cash flow was at it's peek :Shocked:
