Gay tour operator Throb has ceased trading. The company cites its bankrupcy is due to the collapse of XL Airways/XL Leisure Group.The company website says: “It is with regret that we have to inform you that, despite our best efforts, Throb Holidays Ltd has ceased trading.
“As a result of the collapse of XL Airways/XL Leisure Group (who were our
main flight provider) we have unfortunately been unable to contain the
damage this causes us in both the immediate term and in the future,
where the lack of flight capacity we would have relied upon from XL Airways for new reservations makes continuing trading impossible.
“Our thoughts and concerns are of course for all our customers caught up in
this and we hope that you can understand that this was not a decision taken
lightly after 14 years of responsibly serving the gay community.”
