ATA Tours not operating
Travel agent, “Dave”, asks the question: are ATA tours on the way out?
A customer booked a 10 coast and Karijini tour through my web sight with Adventure Tours, I first did the quote for these two people on the 27 June 2012, I checked all availability and all ok, customers deposited the money.
Upon booking these trips with Adventure tours for January I was told that these tours are not running, reason being no one was booked on!
Quite understandably as it’s a long time away, however a month earlier it was available and ATA would have taken the booking.
The question is: would they have dropped/bumped these customers on the 11th hour?
If so, to what tour ? As they have bought everything in the west coast ,and as far as I know, no one else is doing a coast and Karijini 10 day tour, I can’t understand why they’d cancel this tour so far out.
One can only come to a conclusion that ATA is on the way out after all these years, it’s a shame really as there is nothing left now in the west.
