Under the scheme, customers who have already paid for their package holiday (involving coach travel and at least one night’s accommodation) are protected and will get a refund in full. The administrators Ernest & Young, will over the next few days, contact customers directly to ensure that those customers who have not as yet taken their holiday will get claim forms to claim their refund."
