Julian concerned to hear of potential job losses at York based SuperBreak

August 2, 2019

Julian has today reacted to the disappointing news that Malvern Group, the parent company of York based SuperBreak is going into administration

SuperBreak currently employs 250 people, including 150 in their head office in Eboracum Way. The company announced yesterday that it was ceasing trading and that its contact centre would close.

Julian has heard from Malvern Group that the firm had recently appointed advisers from KPMG to undertake an accelerated sales process to secure interim funding. Unfortunately, due to their cash position the time frame has proved too short to secure bank support or the sale of the business.

An estimated 400 customers of SuperBreak are currently on holiday in the UK or overseas. The guidance for these customers is to continue with their trips as planned as the majority will be ABTA or ATOL protected. For those with future bookings the advice is to contact ABTA (domestic holidays) or the CAA (foreign holidays) to discuss either a refund or a new reservation.

Julian encourages anyone with concerns about today’s sad news to get in touch, and he will try and provide as much assistance as he can.
