My Travel Agent who i booked everything through has gone bust

I'm having a major stress. The tour operator who i booked my wedding, hotel, cruise and experience days has just gone bankrupt.

I've spent all day trying to find out if my wedding is defiantly booked.

Is there any UK brides out there in the same situation. I know a few of you have booked through the same UK tour operator as me.

I'm six weeks away....

Oh dear I really feel for you. I hoped that no one on these boards would have been affected by this.

Fingers crossed for you that you get it sorted soon.

Sending good wishes your way

I saw someone post about this on the Theme Parks board...

I hope you get in touch with someone at Disney and they can confirm that part is a go for you!

With the rest of it, I hope you get some resolution!

None of the UK phone numbers are working. They have either been cut off or are constantly engaged. Disney are having a meeting this afternoon to discuss how to continue with all the people. Our wedding planner is ringing us back later to tell us whether we have to pay again for the wedding or whether it has been paid and is secure. I really hope it is.

It looks like weve lost our hotel, Disney tickets and experience days (which we had brought as birthday gifts for eachother).

I'm gutted. I've been an emotional wreck. Weddings are stressful enough without this. This was my worst nightmare.

Oh no! I am SO sorry you are going through this! Here's hoping Disney can pull some magic out and get everything back on track for you and the others affected by this.

How devasting!! There's also a thread about this on the Theme Park board if you're looking to connect to others who are affected.

Thoughts are with you guys...

OMG, how awful!! We had XL flights booked for 3 days time. Had to shell out £700 on last minute easyjet flights this morning.

That's nothing compared to you guys though

From everything I've read though everyone who had booked packages are in the best situation, as we booked flights only through xl.com we aren't in line for any refund at all!!!

Just re-book stuff us fast as you can and worry about the money later if you can.

Would be such a shame for a stupid company to ruin your special day!! Hopefully disney can sort it all out for you, and then XL (or ATOL) will get your money back ASAP.

If you paid for anything with mastercard they should be able to refund you too, (we phoned mastercard today and they said we should get our ££ no problem)



xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Keeping everything crossed for you!!

Just spoke with our affected family and they have managed to get in contact with someone ???? don't know who, but they have been told that because it was a package they booked then they should be ok to get their money back, and that it is the flights only that are worst affected.

Keep us updated.

Speaking to my wedding planner she said there is alot of brides affected. I just hope that my booking is secure and paid for. I think i've almost defiantly lost the hotels and park tickets, but they can be re-booked. I'm gutted for my DF's parents they have lost the whole holiday too. I just hope they can re-book it wont be the same without them Please keep your fingers crossed for us x

OMG! I am so sorry this happened to you. How awful! I hope everything turns out alright. I've heard so many horror stories about travel agents and such I don't use them. I call the places I'm going directly, but I know that's not always an option for some people. I hope you can reach Disney and they can tell you if everything is all set. I'll be thinking good thought for you and keeping my fingers crossed.
