Additional Information

Saga, the British holiday company, has announced that it has started redundancy consultations with its staff to cut up to 300 jobs. The company did not share further details about the planned restructuring. A spokesperson for Saga said the job cuts were necessary to compensate for reduced customer numbers: all of Saga’s cruises have been suspended since March, due to the COVID-19 health crisis.

Saga specialises in providing cruises, package holidays and insurance services to customers over the age of 50.
