Two package holiday firms have collapsed into administration, leaving more than 50,000 travellers uncertain about their holiday plans, cancellations and refunds.

Malvern Group, which incorporates Manchester-based Late Rooms and York-based Superbreak Mini Holidays, known as Super Break, has ceased trading.

The group said Super Break hotel-only holidays would be cancelled and people currently on holiday might have to pay again.

It said it "anticipated" bookings through Late Rooms would be secure.

Information for customers with bookings has been posted on the company website.

Around 250 employees work for the travel company.

Employees have shared their thoughts on the travel firm collapse on social media.

Malvern Group said its contact centre had closed and it intended to appoint administrators on Friday.

It advised customers to contact Abta, their travel agent or their credit card provider for further help.

Abta has issued advice for customers of Super Break, but said it did not cover Late Rooms.

In a statement, it said the "vast majority" of Super Break holidaymakers' arrangements would be covered through Abta, Atol or their credit card companies.

One social media tweeted that Crowne Plaza in King’s Cross in London was asking Super Break customers to pay again or leave the hotel.

An estimated 400 people are currently on 167 Superbreak bookings in the UK and Europe.

Meanwhile, around 53,000 people are yet to take their holiday.
