Following the collapse of All Leisure Group the issue arose of consumer protection for customers of a travel enterprise that goes out of business. There are various means by which customers can protect themselves, or ensure that they are protected as a result of the choices they make. I became interested in learning what those were, and equally the situations where customers are not protected.
Given that the topic has wider applicability than just cruise holidays, I did a post on this subject earlier today in my Travel blog rather than here. If anyone can see any glaring omissions or errors, please let me know via a comment in the Travel blog.
