ABSTRACT
This article presents information on help provided by Jono Vernon-Powell of the Association of Independent Tour Operators, to some of the delegates returning from the convention of the Association of British Travel Agents in Morocco. As one of the coaches drove worn-out delegates back to the Tunis Airport, the driver suddenly stopped on the motorway, opened the door and ran off. Only then did anyone notice the luggage door had sprung open--leaving a trail of bags amidst the speeding traffic.
