More than 3,000 holidaymakers claiming refund following collapse of Lowcostholidays

The Spanish tour operator collapsed on 15 July and customers have until 19 September to submit their claim.

MORE THAN 3,000 people have lodged claims for a refund following the collapse of Lowcostholidays.

The Commission for Aviation Regulation had received 3,040 claims as of this morning.

The Spanish tour operator collapsed on 15 July and customers have until 19 September to submit their claim.

The operator was based in Spain, but the majority of its customers came from Britain. It had offices in the UK, Spain, Switzerland and Poland.

It had an Irish website and Facebook page and was a popular provider among Irish holidaymakers. It’s estimated that 15,000 Irish holidaymakers were left out of pocket.

The Commission says it is currently assessing the claims received so far and in some instances additional information and documentation has been sought.

Claim forms for refunds can be found on the Commission’s website
