TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Attorney General Pam Bondi today issued a Consumer Alert about Legendary Journeys, Inc., a Sarasota-based travel agency that has closed its doors and filed an assignment for the benefit of creditors proceeding in state court. Customers who booked travel through Legendary Journeys, and had travel plans cancelled due to the closing of the company, may be eligible for a refund of deposits paid and/or a refund of travel insurance premiums paid.
There are two separate processes consumers must follow to seek refunds:
Refunds for Travel Deposits:
Customers must file a proof of claim in the court proceeding by May 14, 2018 and submit the claim to the assignee, Larry S. Hyman, or the claim will be barred.
