Kiss collapse causes panic

THE demise of the travel company Kiss Flights has put thousands of holidaymakers’ plans in jeopardy. The announcement yesterday that the company had stopped trading came as 13,000 customers were still abroad and a further 60,000 have already paid for trips.

news that Kiss had followed in the footsteps of Goldtrail and Sun 4 U, two other travel companies to go bust in recent months, does not mark an end to the doom and gloom. There have been warnings that other holiday firms could collapse before the summer is out.
