Bulgaria's Ministry of Economy, Energy and Tourism has launched proceedings to take away the license of the On Travel tour operator.

The company has been involved in systematic violations, Ivo Marionov, Deputy Economy Minister in charge of tourism, has told local media.

On Thursday, it was revealed that 38 tourists from Bulgaria have found themselves in a limbo in Turkey. They were informed by a hotel representative that they will have to leave or pay for their stay, as their Bulgarian tour operator had failed to do so.

The Bulgarians had already a booked flight back for Saturday, which they had paid to their tour operator, as they had already also paid their stay through Saturday. However, the tour operator had not transferred the funds to the relevant hotels, as claimed by their representatives.

On Travel was involved in a similar stranding of Bulgarian tourists in Spain last week.
