Important Customer Information following the collapse of Thomas Cook Group

Important-Information-for-customers

Due to the collapse of Thomas Cook Group which unfortunately included our principle the Freedom Travel Group, Mulberry Travel are now part of The Midcounties Co-operative Travel Consortium with a new ABTA membership number of P#### and approved ATOL bond 6053. This means we can continue to offer package holidays and trips with the same level of financial protection to our clients.

Clients with ongoing arrangements booked with us can rest assured that they are 100% financially protected by either the ATOL scheme or via the ABTA bonding scheme. Please read the relevant paragraph to understand the process whereby your arrangements are protected.

ATOL Bonded Packages

Bonded under ATOL certificate 6042

This makes up the large majority of our clients bookings. The CAA who control the ATOL scheme have placed all these bookings with Hays Travel for fulfillment under their ATOL number 5534. We will continue to act as your agent and all arrangements you have made with us will be realised as agreed, at the same cost to you and with the full protection of their ATOL bond from now until you return safely back to the UK.

Bonded under another Tour Operator ATOL certificate

Clients with this type of package will be unaffected by the collapse of Freedom Travel Group as Mulberry Travel acted as your agent on behalf of another Tour Operator and their ATOL certificate continues to offer you full protection on your holiday. Balance payments need to be made as normal and we will issue travel documents from the Tour Operator as normal.

ABTA Bonded Packages

We have a small number of clients who have arrangements which had no flight element and so therefore were not ATOL bonded. These bookings have the financial protection of the ABTA bond scheme which offers 100% financial protection on your arrangements. Unfortunately, the process protecting you involves obtaining a refund of whatever you’ve paid so far for your trip. We have agreements in place with most of our ultimate travel suppliers to re-establish the booked arrangements at the same costs. We will be in touch with every client who has an ABTA package to assist them in claiming back their money and re-booking their arrangements at the same costs as originally agreed.
