ITAA advise Irish Holidaymakers who have booked through Lowcostholidaygroup
Dublin, 17 July 2016 As of Friday evening, 15th July 2016, the lowcosttravelgroup has ceased trading and has entered into administration. This applies to the following:
• Lowcosttravelgroup Ltd
• lowcostholidays Spain S.L. t/a lowcostholidays.ie
• Hoteling.com part of Lowcostholidays Spain S.L.
• Lowcostbeds.com A.G.
The Irish Travel Agents Association (ITAA), are advising holidaymakers who booked holidays with lowcostholidays.ie (lowcostholidays Spain S.L.) to contact the Commission for Aviation Regulation (CAR). Lowcostholidays Spain is licensed and bonded by CAR. Details on how to claim, and who should claim against the bond, will be posted on the CAR website (www.aviationreg.ie) early this coming week.
The ITAA are advising holidaymakers who booked hotel accommodation with lowcostbeds through their travel agent, to contact that travel agent directly and they will advise them. Any consumer who booked accommodation only through lowcostbeds and paid by credit card may be able to reclaim against their credit card provider for services not received. It is advisable for consumers to keep all receipts of expenses incurred in order to claim a refund or compensation.
The ITAA notes that consumers who booked accommodation only through lowcostbeds are not covered under any bond. Travel bonds apply to package holidays only.
