From the Daily Mail… what do you think???
A gap-year travel firm has gone into administration, leaving more than 150 cash-strapped teenagers stranded overseas, it was reported. Administrators were called into Global Xperience last week after the company – which places travellers on volunteer and adventure projects spanning six continents – fell victim to the recession.
A total of 163 young people on placements across the globe were given the news by letter and email, The Independent revealed.
Trade association body Year Out Group, said in a statement: ‘On March 13, 2009 Stephen Katz and David Birne of Fisher Partners were appointed joint administrators of The Ethical Travel Group Limited, which traded as Global Xperience. ‘
As a result of the administration Global Xperience is unable to fulfil its obligations in regard to future bookings with the company.’
