Airline watchdog the CAA has revealed that it was investigating Goldtrail Travel in the weeks leading up to the collapse of the UK’s largest independent tour operator. Forensic accountants have now been enlisted to investigate the accounts.
Over two thirds of the 16,000 customers stranded overseas when Goldtrail Holidays collapsed on Friday have been repatriated to the UK. But Goldtrail customers have reported that some hoteliers have been demanding cash payments for rooms already paid for as part of packages.
Around 16,000 British holidaymakers have been left stranded abroad following the collapse of budget operator Goldtrail. A further 2,000 due to fly to Greece and Turkey this weekend have had their holidays cancelled.
