The Monarch loss just gets worse for some of its clients.
They are being asked to pay (again) their hotel booking fees.
This is in spite of the fact that such costs are covered by Atol.
It does seem that some unscrupulous hoteliers are looking to cash in on the sly. Not a good move.
In addition, travellers on package holidays organised by Monarch are guaranteed to have their hotel rooms paid for under the Atol scheme. The CAA says: “We are working around the clock to contact all accommodation providers in order to make arrangements for you to remain in your accommodation, on the same board basis, for the duration of your holiday, at no extra cost to you.”
