Conquest Vacations ceases operations

By James Havers, Sympatico / MSN Finance

Tour operator Conquest Vacations Inc. has announced the cessation of its operations effective immediately.

In a posting on its website, the company says customers who booked and paid using cash or cheque should contact their travel agency with respect to a refund or claim. Customers who booked directly with Conquest should email directcustomers@conquestvacations.com with a booking reference number.

Conquest blames price war between major tour operators, unreasonable demands by credit card processing companies, and current economic conditions for its demise.
