ATTN: Conquest Vacations filed for bankruptcy today!!!
Posted 16 April 2009 - 04:21 PM
Still if you had planned a vacation leaving this saturday, you would not get your money back in time. They say it can take weeks to get your refund.
I think its horrible that they were still booking the day before. Makes me nervous to book anything right now with the other tour companies.

As for the travelers in Mexico, I have heard that the flight home will be honored but not until their scheduled time on Monday. I am waiting for the 11:00 news to see what is happening now. I am following this pretty closely as I really feel for these people in a sticky situation.

My frustration with all this is why isnt the government stepping in and helping?!?! and why is this no longer on the news if people are still stuck there and from what my friends MIL has heard the threats to guests are getting MUCH MUCH more intense and dangerous!
So does anyone else know anything new?? I am trying to search for news stories..

A couple of things to look out for- this is for any business not just travel-
Is the deal to good to be true? If the pricing much lower than everyone elses- it could be a last straw cash grab. I am seeing more and more of the internet companies offering prices that are rock bottom and it makes me wonder....are they operating at a loss? How long can they continue at the to stay in business at the prices they are offering? They have huge overhead-something has to give somewhere a company has to be able to turn a profit to stay in business.
Are they offering discounts if you pay in cash ? Again this could be a big grabfor $$ before they go under!
Has there been a significant change in the way they operate their business?
A couple of ways to protect yourself-
Check with your debit card and credit card-what is the policy if your travel suppliers goes bankrupt.
Purchase travel insurance but again what is the policy on bankruptcy?
