A Hong Kong travel agency popular with foreign domestic helpers shut down abruptly on Wednesday, causing major disruption for 460 travellers and leaving them a combined HK$1.2 million out of pocket.


By Thursday afternoon, angry customers had massed at the office of Free Spirit Travel, which told the Travel Industry Council of its plan to fold the previous afternoon. Its licence was suspended that night, the council said.


Most of the victims had bought flights to Indonesia for holidays.
