source?? I travelled with them 3 weeks ago and was considering going again next week! close shave!

OMG I have been checking their website daily due to Barky's brilliant deal - as wanting to get away next week

Wow they have an extremely bad rep it seems! Been on watchdog etc, i wouldnt be suprised if they did go down the pan! Some funny reading reviews though (not for the holiday makers) including "served drinks in yoghurt pots!" lol

Barky, i put them in my favorites after you came back and posted about them, might delete it now! lol Thankfully it looks like you got the best of their hotels on offer!

actually when googling about it - tons came up but goes back a few years rumours they have gone bust.

Hopefully this is just another rumour

snap! Ive been watching the edinburgh flight on the 22nd,waiting for it to drop and was gonna pounce-they have been trading 9 years and as long as you choose the right hotel by viewing tripadvisor first,they have some ASTONISHING deals-under a hundred quid for a week bed and breakfast is very common.

My friend left this week flying with them - a weeks AI in Turkey £229, thats really good as her and her hubby will get their moneys worth lol. Good reviews also on the TripAdvisor website.

the hotel altinersan in altinkum and the sunny gardens in nilifer just outside trugetreis are fantastic hotels-some of the ones they have are well dodgy,but anyone doing a bit of research can get rock bottom deals as they always struggle to fill their charter flights-if you have the nerve to wait til 72 hours before departure,you can even phone them and make em an offer-lol!

of course,if they are finally dead then thats the end of that deal!

I didnt believe the op myself so did a little research (proud of me barky? lol), shame really cos as barky said they had some cracking deals on there and if you know what hotels are best you cant really go wrong

Well done OP, sorry for the doubt on my part. Another holiday company, shouldnt have doubted really!

I have not been able to contact their sister company airborne direct for weeks, no replies to emails, can't get through on phone and no response to my letter,this is not good news Atol helpline closed until monday,not sure if i will get my money back as paid using debit card, one return flight to turkey with goldtrail and 2 other return flights using airborn direct (sister company i believe?)

lol my friend has just called me back - totally steaming - and didnt believe me at first

She sounded a lot more sober when we hung up there...............

darn it! shoulda taken that 89 quid deal a fortnight ago! we were looking at going on the edinburgh flight next thursday-it had already dropped to 121 quid each-I wanted to book it last night and mrs barky told me to wait til it went down another ten quid-lol-cant believe how close I came!

thing is tho,there is now gonna be a LOT of empty hotels which were exclusive to goldtrail who might do some good direct deals if the flights can be found cos they arent going to have time to get sorted for this summer are they?

maybe HUKDers could all chip in,charter a jet and get the cheapest holiday in the world?

Hopefully u paid with your CC and can do a chargeback (or whatever its called as I dont have one!!)

I have friends in Turkey at the moment who travelled with Goldtrail - today they were assured they were going to be well looked after and flown home as planned..............time will tell!

Bossy i dont have credit cards either,paid with visa debit so will have to wait for atol to refund me but i think i have to claim a refund first with them
