In February 2017, the company was hit with a cyber attack that threatened to expose the details of up to 43,000 holidaymakers, with 1,000 of these compromised files potentially containing identifying information.
The company blamed the breach on a system vulnerability in a server managed for the company by a third party.
After discovering the breach the company immediately approached security consultants, the police and reported it to the Information Commissioner. The company's CEO Mark Tanzer apologised for any "anxiety and concern" caused by the breach.
