Thousands of tourists with bookings have been affected by the collapse of Teletext holidays and Alpharooms.

TELETEXT HOLIDAYS and Alpharooms have filed for bankruptcy.

Hundreds of thousands of British tourists may be affected.

The news is estimated to have an impact on 4,000 customers.

Teletext Holidays and Alpharooms have gone into administration as a result of their memberships in the Travel Trust Association being revoked.

According to the government’s insolvency database, Truly Holdings, which owns both businesses, has ceased operations.

Truly Holdings is believed to have hired Edge Recovery and Insolvency Practitioners’ Robert Cundy and Bijal Shah to manage the closure a week ago.

The company has effectively run out of cash, and any remaining funds will be used to pay its debtors.

Truly Holdings had “sought the appointment of liquidators,” according to the Travel Trust Association (TTA).

The company had been chastised by the UK’s competition watchdog for failing to pay out millions of pounds in refunds.

Due to holiday cancellations during the pandemic, refunds were due.

Teletext Holidays is reportedly no longer accepting reservations.

Alpharooms is expected to honor existing vacation reservations, but will not be able to accommodate new reservations.

Tourists who are currently on a Teletext vacation should be unaffected by the news of the liquidation.

The TTA says it has contacted all suppliers and asked that reservations be kept.

All Teletext package holidays should go ahead as planned, and all ATOL-protected flights will take place.

Customers should still be able to go on vacation or receive a refund if the company goes bankrupt, according to the TTA.

Customers who made reservations with Alpharooms are eligible for a refund.

The TTA claims that it has contacted all affected customers.

Alpharooms refunds may take up to 12 weeks to process, according to the TTA, and customers must submit a refund request.

Some customers have yet to receive a refund for a vacation that was postponed due to the pandemic.

The CMA is currently suing Truly Holdings in order to obtain a full refund for those who have had their vacations canceled.

It has stated that it is keeping a close eye on the situation and will take steps to recoup any refunds owed.

“We’re keeping an eye on things and looking for more information,” it said.

While these reports will worry people who are waiting for refunds, we will continue to do everything we can to help them.
