I think it's important to add that Travel Extras also had agreements in place with other carriers, notably BMIBaby. Even Ryanair recently announced on 06OCT that they had signed an agreement with Travel Extras becoming their nominated supplier of hotels, insurance...etc for the next 3 years, although this has now misteriously disappeared from their website.

I wonder how many passengers thought they had booked " a Holiday" with all the protection that gives?? Yet again the Civil Servants are not serving the members of the public. The only real loosers are the credit card companies who will have to repay the customers, at least those who paid more than �100....Interesting times are ahead and I await the failure of ??? leaving thousands of passengers without money or flight and,due to government lethargy,no cover

Negative!

The main First Choice brands in this area are First4Exrtas and Hotelopia, who now supply easyJet's hotel inventory.
