The approved claims are …

One claim was denied. The claim, totalling $4,188, was filed by two consumers against Sunmed Holidays Inc. The consumers were claiming for the value of a future travel voucher (credit) provided by Sunmed Holidays Inc. as a goodwill gesture. As TICO notes, the travel services were cancelled by the claimant and were 100% non-refundable at the time of cancellation.
