Rangers’ official travel partner Corporate Travel Management (CTM) have been forced to cancel plans for an official day trip to watch the return leg of the club’s Champions League qualifier against PSV Eindhoven.
The travel supplier are tasked with providing Rangers fans in the travel club with an Official Day Trip to away days across Europe depending on when and where the club play.
But the group have been forced to cancel plans for a trip to the Netherlands due to the fact they cannot source a suitable and cost-effective aircraft for 24th August 2022.
This is despite the fact that some members of the CTM scheme have already paid to be transported to the continent with those fans affected now facing a scramble to organise alternative transport.
Rangers travel partners CTM pull plug on PSV trip
In an email seen by Rangers News, CTM sport say:
“CTM Sport have been working tirelessly today to source an aircraft, suitable for the supporters that have expressed an interest.
“Unfortunately, due to limited availability, and peak holiday season it has been made extremely difficult to secure an aircraft of acceptable cost that wouldn’t put extra financial cost for the trip to go ahead.
“We did not make the decision to cancel the Official Day Trip lightly and apologies for the inconvenience caused.
“All supporters who have made payment will receive a full refund, which will be processed within 5 working days.
“We appreciate your patience at this time and look forward to welcoming you on an official trip in the near future.”
CTM Sport have been the official travel partner of Rangers since February 2020 with their remit to specifically provide “official travel packages, including flights, accommodation, and match tickets, for European Away trips” [CTM].
