MORE than 15,000 Australians have potentially had their holidays wrecked after a Gold Coast discount travel company went bust.
Australian Escapes closed suddenly on March 9, leaving people out of pocket and without bookings for trips they believed were confirmed.
The online company offered memberships to customers in return for what it claimed were “heavily discounted resort and travel packages to over 300 resorts, hotels and holiday parks” across Australia and other parts of the world.
About 40 staff also found themselves redundant without warning following the announcement.
