Hi Girls I work in a travel agents and the licence is up for renewal just like all other agents. expires on the 30 April. We have hear nothing yet so presume I am out of a job tomorrow. Is anyone else in the same boat? Or whats the chances of the bosses getting the licence tomorrow. the thoughts of being out ot a job so close to Wedding. I know alot of people are but very worried.

Work for one of the tour operators and OMG things are sooo quiet!! Alot been let go out of our office - no comission to be earned anymore and on a pay cut!! My only sanity at the moment is starting maternity leave after saturday!! Best of luck and let us know how you get on - I know alot of the agents have closed down really quickly, gone shocking all this swine flu business aint helping things either! O:|

hi rigo i also work in travel and our licence is also up on the 30th :o( technically you can't trade unless your licence is renewed but i know a couple of years ago we did for a month or so cos there was additional information required from commision for aviation regulation and because that took its time to go through,we traded as normal.... i'm sure they'll let you know in a couple of days.. we are all in the same boat, hope all goes ok....
