Online travel company ceases trading




Dublin-based Chase Travel International, which sold exclusively through the trade, has ceased trading just three months after opening an office in Australia.


A message on the online travel company's website reads: "Dear Travel Agent, it is with great sadness that as of the 1st of November Chase Travel has ceased trading. The company is seeking professional advice on the next steps and a further update will be provided accordingly."

No-one was available for comment today.

Chase Travel was founded in 1990 and had operations in Ireland, the UK and France as well as Australia.

Around nine years ago it switched to become an online provider.

In an interview with TravelMole TV in 2007, director Michael Stevens said the business had been boosted by the booking trend from package to tailor-made, dynamically-packaged holidays.

The company sold hotels, apartments, flights, cruises, transfers and attractions, with services available to travel agents 24 hours a day. It did not hold an ATOL.

  • What about ChaseTech and ChaseTrips?

    Be interesting to see what happens to the sister companies ChaseTech and Chase Trips and whether they emerge from the ashes!
