Victory Tours in query as customers let down by Hampshire firm

89

Concerns have been raised about the financial position of Emsworth, Hampshire-based Victory Travel, which appears to have ceased trading.

The telephone line is unobtainable, and other operators in the area have received calls from Victory Travel customers who had pre-paid for coaches, that have not turned up as booked, leaving them in the lurch.

The customers have not been contacted by Victory Travel.

Local reports say that a number of coaches were recently repossessed.

The firm, incorporated as a limited company in 2013 by owner and sole director Paul Donald, 61, also has a string of outstanding County Court Judgements totalling £45,505 against it.

It has an O-Licence for 13 vehicles, and Mr Donald is also the notified Transport Manager.

Contrary to claims on its website, Victory Travel is not a current Confederation of Passenger Transport (CPT) member
