There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Did she book the flights and hotel separate do you know please?
We booked through the flight centre so they arranged it all
We have been informed that we can change the flight dates and duration of the holiday but the hotel is non refundable but she could find someone else to go with her at that time and I said she could have the hotel room I wuold rearrange something if I decided to go at that time
I have not canceled her holiday. Currently my flight remains unchanged. I want to change the dates at a cost to myself and will rebook a hotel possibly next year. Her flight remains booked and the hotel is there for her to use as she wishes. It is her decision to move it and if she does incur costs that is the result of her decsion.
You booked the hotel under your name and I said that I would make no claim on it even though I had paid towards it. Your flight is in your name and me deciding not to go has not changed that fact. If you decide to change your flight dates that is your choice and that choice will result in you not taking advantage of the hotel room. If you incur a cost to make that change that is your decision. As it will be mine if I decide to do the same.
My actions have not affected the holiday you have booked.
Also I have not cancelled a pre-paid non-refundable trip. I have merely stated that I do not want to spend the time with you due to my concerns, stated in an email to you on June 6th 2014, in the hope that we might find an amicable solution, the content of which you chose not to discuss.
The 'you' bit is my proposed response to her. Let me know what you think. To confirm me deciding to go at a separate time does not affect the holiday she has booked. I just won't be there. If that makes sense.
I am a bit confused me pulling out chnages nothing for her. she can still go and have the same flight and hotel, me dropping out does not increase her cost the costs she refers to are based on her decsion to change her dates and therefore lose the hotel that was in her name. Am I liable for anything?
She can still go yes.
You can't stop her from going - it is you that are changing the booking
If she changes the dates, you are not responsible for any additional charges
Does that help?
Sorry for any confusion. Its hard on here. :+) I know that she can still go. The hotel is in her name, I paid for half of i but have said that she can keep it. Its non refundable so unless she keeps to the current dates she will lose it but that is her choice. Me changing my flight date does not impact her flight and she could still go so ultimately I have not canceled her holiday. She is claiming against me for the cost to change her flight to a different time, which is her decsion and £400 bcause she is deciding to go at a different time and not use the hotel. In a court would I be liable to pay for any of these costs. Thanks again
I agree with you, you are not liable for those costs
Its her deicsion
Does that clarify?
