Four bed banks have been warned it is ‘make or break’ time whether they continue working with the Triton Travel Group.

The group has extended its deadline for the accommodation-only suppliers to switch to principal status until next week or find an alternative, which ensures agents are protected if there is an accident in resort.

Triton’s initial warning in February followed the deaths of two children in Corfu from carbon monoxide poisoning.

Triton director John McEwan said some bed banks were still locked in discussions with the super-consortium as they do not want to take on principal status because of the extra cost involved.

“We are giving them more time because we want to reach a satisfactory agreement,” he said.
