Tripashore ceases trading

Specialist cruise shore excursion supplier Tripashore has ceased trading.

Tripashore was set-up in November 2015. Former Attraction World chief operating officer Tony Seaman joined Tripashore as chief commercial officer in October last year and also became a “substantial” investor.

He confirmed to Travel Weekly he left six weeks ago having only been there for four weeks.

A communication from Tripashore chief executive Lee Strongitharm said: “It is with huge regret that I am advising that the company ceased to trade on December 22, 2016 and the directors are taking professional advice from Begbies Traynor with a view to assisting with putting the company into liquidation.

“All creditors will receive notice of the creditors meeting in the next few days.
“Our main investor pulled funds pre-christmas and despite best efforts to refinance the company the remaining investors decided to also withdraw funds and left us with no option but to act swiftly in the interests of the creditors to wind up the company and I am being advised by Begbies Traynor on the next steps. All of your WL customers will be contacted shortly.
“I will do my best to make this as painless as possible for everyone concerned. I would like to thank you personally for all the support you gave us. I wish other agents had shown a similar eagerness to work in the same way and I am sure the model would have been successful. I wish you well and will be in touch soon with updates.”
