MOSCOW, April 11 (Itar-Tass) —— The Megaruss-D insurance company has started to receive claims from clients of the ITC (International Trave Club) tour operator experiencing financial problems, Megaruss-D First Deputy General Director Anna Klochko told Itar-Tass.
She said the tour operator’s financial liability was insured at 30 million rubles.
“The company has received 22 claims from legal entities (travel agencies) and individuals (tourists) related to 56 tourists,” she said. “Among them are ten tour operator clients, which decided to go on vacation but wished to buy vouchers from a different company. We consider each of these claims and make individual decisions.”
Financial difficulties of the ITC (International Travel Club), a member of the Association of Russian Tour Operators, became known several days ago. The company suspended departures of its tourists and informed the clients and partners about its temporary problems.
Federal Tourism Agency spokesman Oleg Moseyev told Itar-Tass that 67 ITC clients were abroad at the moment, most of them in Cuba.
In turn, the Russian Union of the Travel Industry (RUTI) said that ITC had sold tours to about 300 people with the total cost of 26 million rubles. “Vouchers and plane tickets were given to some tourists for May-June tours. It is important for the tourists to check whether the tour operator has transferred the money to hotels before flying to the distant countries,” the Union said.
ITC was established in 1995 as a multirole tour operator and a seller of aircraft tickets. It currently sells tours to more than 20 destinations, among them Brazil, Mexico, Vietnam, the Philippines and Peru.
