It is with great sadness that we have had to make the decision to close Ethos Travel after 13 amazing years (and 18 very difficult months). This is not a choice we have made lightly but the reality is that we cannot foresee a future that would enable us to trade our way out of Covid uncertainties. With the ending of furlough, and the lack of any tailored industry support we have faced the reality that the future remains bleak for specialist tour operators without reliable income.
Only 1 out of our 11 destinations is currently (partially) open to UK Travellers and as we face the prospect of uncertain future border openings and confused messaging, we have to accept that fundamentally we are a business without business. We have tried to give the company time and opportunity to find a pathway through the current uncertainties – but this has proved impossible.
We are indebted to all of our amazing staff and clients over the last 13 years – and to the incredible loyalty of those who have booked and rebooked over recent times. We remain committed to supporting you moving forward – all bookings are ATOL Bonded and we will be in touch as a matter of priority.
We know we have created many indelible memories for so many people, and feel an incredible sadness that we will not be there to make many more.
