Bestjet Insolvency - What next for It's Customers?


That’s a great point. I’ve not heard of that scenario before Bestjet but now it’s been used once, I’m sure it will be used in future travel agent collapses.


It was appropriate then for Choice to speak up. Is it still appropriate today to ask for change?


I think so. We’ve concentrated on airlines and more recently the banking and insurance companies with the royal commission. So it’s been a while since we’ve looked into the effects of travel agent collapses but I think we may need to revisit the topic.


Administration does not appear to have dampened Bestjet’s ability and desire to keep billing, twice.

If you were a Bestjet customer it appears you need to watch your accounts closely.


The blame game rolls on.

The toothless tiger struck again. Meow.



Not to worry. ASIC has updated their logo and are awaiting delivery of some superhero outfits.
