Credit: All Leisure Group.

Leicestershire County Council has responded today to the news that Market Harborough based holiday company, All Leisure Group, has stopped trading. Trading Standards say they are advising customers that there a number of ways that they are protected. A spokeswoman within the County Council service said:

“The company in question is an ATOL registered company, so people travelling will be covered by the ATOL protection scheme. The CAA will repatriate those currently abroad whilst refunds will be given to those that have booked holidays. In addition to the ATOL protection , if consumers have paid more than £100 on their credit card towards the cost of the holiday, then they have the potential redress against their credit card company."
