Czech tourists stranded in Greece after travel agency fails

Some 120 Czech tourists have been stranded in Greece after their tour operator HELLAS declared bankruptcy on Wednesday. Nine of their clients are set to return to the Czech Republic on Wednesday while the others are being contacted by an assistance service, according to the Generali insurance firm which provided insolvency insurance to the tour operator. HELLAS quoted issues with their Greek partners, the weak Czech crown and low package tours prices as the reason behind their collapse. It has become the third Czech tour operator to declare bankruptcy this season.
