Monarch collapse: government hoping to cut £60m repatriation cost
With 110,000 people to be repatriated, DfT says it is looking at splitting some of cost with tour operators and credit card firms
The government is hoping to reduce the estimated £60m cost to taxpayers of bringing 110,000 Monarch customers back to the UK from overseas by splitting some of the bill with tour operators and credit card companies.
Monarch was placed into administration early on Monday, triggering Britain’s biggest peacetime repatriation, which is expected to take about two weeks to complete.
