AG Henry Reaches Settlement with Vantage Travel Services which Allows Litigation to Move Forward Against Company Owner

The Office of Attorney General has reached a settlement with Vantage Travel Services, Inc., subject to court approval.

In 2023, the Office of Attorney General sued Vantage Travel Services and its sole owner, Henry Lewis, for allegedly engaging in deceptive and unfair business practices by promoting “risk-free” travel to consumers who ultimately never received their trips or a full cash refund from the company. Since then, Vantage has filed for bankruptcy, representing that it has minimal assets and more than $100 million in liabilities to consumers nationwide.

In the bankruptcy case, Vantage and Lewis have further sought to temporarily prevent the Office of Attorney General’s litigation from moving forward against each of them. The settlement only resolves the pending litigation against Vantage Travel, not Henry Lewis, whose case remains pending.

The settlement agreement with Vantage seeks to resolve both legal proceedings as it relates to Vantage. Through the settlement, the Office of Attorney General is seeking a final order against Vantage that permanently prevents the company from engaging in future tour operations in Pennsylvania.

“Vantage exploited Pennsylvanians by holding their refunds hostage,” Attorney General Henry said. “If Pennsylvania consumers pay for goods or services and get nothing in return, our office will fight for those victims.”
