Defunct LCCs

 

As we've mentioned before on our blogs, there's been a lot of debate, some rather vehement on various forums, over the last few years, about whether it's cheaper to book a round the world (RTW) before you go or just buy Low Cost Carriers (LCC) as you go. Well we sell both types of tickets and we do advise travellers to be cautious. Or they could have a fairly misreable and super-expensive RTW year....

 

 

Why? Well below is some of the Low Cost Carriers (LCCs) that have gone under in the last few years (the full list is over 100). We also suggest you read this article - Prepaid RTWs versus Pay As You Go Low Cost Carriers (LCCs) here One thing to mention that every RTW that we sell does have SAFI (Scheduled Airline Failure Insurance) and is covered by ATOL or IATA. Also no major RTW carrier has gone bust in our memory....

 

So if you want a carrier that will still be around in 12 months, with a Travel Agent who specialise in RTWs then give us a call on 020 7704 5700 for a quote. We're open 7 days a week. And we know what we're talking about...we've sent over 70,000 folk around the world and we're mentioned in over 50 guidebooks here
