I apologise for the delay. I have had clients all day.
If you don’t pay the extra, and the holiday company stick to their guns, then you cannot make them provide the holiday for you if they refuse to do so without you paying the extra.
You appear to have 2 options:
You pay the extra under duress and then you take them to the Small Claims Court to get the balance back.
Alternatively, if you no longer want the holiday at the extra price, you tell them to cancel and you want your money back. If they refuse, file a Consumer Credit Act section 75 claim with the credit card company . section 75 put liability onto the credit card company along with the merchant.
There was an offer and acceptance and a consideration payment and in my opinion, they are bound to provide you the holiday at the price you paid.
Can I clarify anything for you?
