Super Break collapsed owing around £50 million, new documents reveal.

Filings on Companies House show the short-break specialist owed £46.6 million  to Indian-based Yes Bank which had a 18.5% stake in Cox & Kings India.

Cox & Kings India in turn held a 49% stake in Super Break parent Malvern Group from 2016 until this summer.

The documents also reveal Super Break had a list of more than 900 creditors, largely made up of hotels.

Jumbo Tours is owed £242,000, while rail firms LNER and West Coast Trains are owed £190,000 and £90,000 respectively.

Super Break ceased trading on August 1 after Malvern Group failed to find investment or a buyer.

It collapsed with 400 customers overseas and 20,000 forward bookings affecting 53,000 customers.

A number of agents were left out of pocket for hotel-only bookings which they believed were Abta‑bonded.

Administrators for the operator KPMG have valued the brand’s assets at almost £2.1 million.
