On Friday 25th September 2015 the Commission for Aviation Regulation announced that Travelcolumn Ltd of Eyre Square, Galway, trading as 1Stoptravel and One Stop Travel and led by Managing Director Colm McDonagh, had ceased trading on that day.
The CAR statement on its website said: “Any customers who purchased overseas travel from the company during the period in which it held a license and who wish to claim a refund from the bond held by the Commission for Aviation Regulation for any money that had not been passed on to the travel providers/suppliers may do so by submitting a claim.
“The CAR will confirm in the next few days arrangements for those bookings where customers made a part payment to Travelcolumn Ltd and balance was yet to be paid – details for these arrangements will be updated in due course.
“Customers who have paid in full for travel should contact the tour operator to establish the status of their booking and complete a claim form.
“The Commission will post further information on this site as it becomes available.”
