Having apparently booked and paid for a flight over the telephone

Resolved Question:

Having apparently booked and paid for a flight over the telephone with Flight Centre, I received the following email:
*****@******.***

to me

Owing to a failure with my internet connection I was unable to respond within the stipulated time and concluded that this negated my booking. I booked another flight with a different provider and was surprised to receive tickets from Flight Centre on 15/5 so I called to ask them to cancel and refund my money and was told that it was non-refundable. Further communication with their Customer Relations department reiterated this view. Since I can see no other natural interpretation of the email above I presume I have a case, do you agree? If so, should I pursue it through mediation or the Small Claims Court?

Hello,

Yes, I agree you have a case as you never continued with your booking and never accepted their terms and conditions.

If they fail to refund you, you may file a court claim online against them at www.moneyclaim.gov.uk
You may add the court fee to your claim as well as interest at court rates.

May I help further?
