Following the closure of Low Cost Travel Group on 15th July, the following information has been provided by Staysure for its affected customers.

In the first instance, LCTG customers who booked via a travel agent or organiser should contact them directly. They have a legal responsibility to provide assistance.

LCTG and its administrators have provided the following guidance to assist affected customers. Contact details and further guidance is available at:  http://www.lowcostholidays.com/.

Already on holiday

If you are already on holiday and you are in possession of your flight tickets, they should be paid for and remain valid.

People who have booked accommodation, transfers or car parking with LCTG are advised to contact the relevant providers for each and confirm the bookings. Travellers may be required to pay locally for these services and may be able to claim using the information below.

Due to travel

People who have received their flight tickets from the airline should be able to check-in and travel as normal.

Anyone who has not received a flight confirmation should contact the airline directly to determine the status of the reservation. If the airline informs LCTG customers that their reservation is not confirmed they will need to rebook flights with another provider.

Any other services that have been reserved with Lowcostholidays.com including accommodation, transfers, car-hire and airport parking will not be valid and will need to be rebooked with another provider.
