Adventure travel specialist Kumuka ceases trading
The small Surrey-based travel company which was licensed to carry 500 passengers this year, packed up business on Monday.
The Australian branch of Kumuka issued the folowing statement: ”Passengers travelling after this will need to contact the Travel Compensation Fund and their agent will need to make alternative travel arrangements.”
In the wake of Kumuka’s news, several competing travel companies have set up alternative deals and discounts for travellers looking to take equivalent trips with them.
“It is sad to see the collapse of a company that we have long respected as a collaborator in building the adventure travel sector. We understand that this is a distressing time for Kumuka staff and our thoughts are with them.” said Interpid Travel’s Geoff Manchester.
