Charlotte Davies, the owner of homeworking group Luxury Holidays and Honeymoons (LHH), has registered a new agency with partner Joshua Clarke.

Companies House shows the pair registered a business on 25 May 2024, six months after LHH suddenly ceased trading.

Several LHH agents told Travel Gossip they were still owed thousands of pounds each in commission by the homeworking company, which launched in 2020.

LHH had been operating under the ABTA licence of Andrew Earles Holidays, which took over its outstanding bookings last November. Owner Andrew Earle claims LHH also owes him more than £100,000  for commission not earned, card fees and management costs.

For her part, Charlotte disputes she owes Andrew Earle any money, claiming instead that he owes LHH for unpaid commission and assets. In an email to Travel Gossip, Charlotte said the money she says she is owed ‘will more than cover what agents are owed’.

LHH was issued with a strike off notice in February 2024, but this was discontinued on 4 May, three weeks before Charlotte and Joshua registered their new company.

They are both listed as joint Managing Directors and joint owners of the new business, LHH Holidays, based in Manchester.

It is listed as a travel agency with Companies House, but no further details are available.

Charlotte told Travel Gossip that despite registering the new business, she has ‘no immediate plans’ to begin trading. She said she is unwell and only registered the business to ‘ensure I don’t lose the capability to trade’.

She added: “I decided to set up a new limited company for a fresh start for when I am ready to work again. Luxury Holidays and Honeymoons Ltd remains open until all debts have been recovered.”
