Longhaul specialist in failure rumours
Online travel agency Dreamticket has temporarily stopped taking bookings amid rumours the company's parent, Selsdon Travel, has ceased trading.
An employee at the longhaul specialist's Croydon offices said this afternoon that the entire management team had been called into a meeting, leaving staff in the dark.
He said all the staff had been told they would be informed of the outcome by 2pm today.
"We don't know what is going on," he said. "At the moment we cannot take booking because of a problem with our systems and we have been told by the management to just wait."
Dreamticket is a specialist in holidays to the Indian Ocean, the Middle East, North America and Australia.
