Conquest Vacations tickets with Cheap Tickets will be refunded.

    VANCOUVER, April 16 /CNW/ - Cheap Tickets is reassuring all
customers who booked Conquest Vacations tickets and packages with them, their
purchases are insured against supplier default. Cheap Tickets is
licenced with the BPCPA (Business Practices and Consumer Protection Authority)
of British Columbia which provides additional protection on travel purchases.
    "Yesterday we spent the day rebooking all of our customers affected by
the closure of Conquest Vacations onto alternate flights, including
individuals departing this coming weekend. As a registered member of the
BPCPA, we want to reassure all of our customers, they will get refunds for
unused Conquest Vacations bookings." reports company CEO, Normand Schafer.
    "We also want consumers to know that an additional way to protect their
purchases in this time of economic uncertainty is to pay for travel purchases
with a registered travel company like Cheap Tickets" adds Schafer.
    While this marks the first recent failure of a major tour company, the
collapse of other airlines such as Zoom Airlines, Aloha Airlines and Oasis
Hong Kong within the past year and Jetsgo, Canjet and Canada 3000 in recent
years indicate the volatility within the travel business. Cheap Tickets credits an increase in business amidst the current economic climate
to savvy, price conscious travellers who want the best value from their travel
