Two bundle holiday firms have collapsed, changing more than 50,000 travellers.

Malvern Group, which incorporates Manchester-based Late Rooms and York-based Superbreak Mini Holidays, known as Super Break, have ceased trading.

The group said Super Break hotel-only holidays would be cancelled and beings currently on holiday might have to pay again.

It said it “anticipated” bookings through Late Rooms would be secure.

Malvern Group said those on Super Break package vacations would be protected by travel association Abta but that endowment vouchers and tickets for entertainment and allures were no longer valid.

Abta has issued advice for customers of Super Break, but said it did not cover Late Rooms.

The bride-to-be is due to get married in four weeks’ time.

“I was in tears on the telephone to my mum this morning, ” she said.

“We were supposed to stay in the Raddison Blue Edwardian in Bloombsury, London, go to the Fawlty Towers Dining Interactive Experience and do a little of sightseeing.

“Our honeymoon is now broke unless we can magic up more money.

“We’ve laboured so hard this year to pay for the bridal and we were looking forward to having some time away.

“However, me and my partner might have to cancel the honeymoon.”
