Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello. I am Ed, a Solicitor qualified in England and Wales with over a decade’s experience in the legal profession advising clients.
I specialise in Commercial Contracts, Business Transactions, Employment, Dispute Resolution, Personal Injury and Road Traffic Law and shall be reviewing your legal problem today.
Regarding the site’s automatic offer of a Premium Service Phone Call, I shall be delighted to talk with you by phone to discuss your issue in greater detail if you accept the offer.
I am sorry that you are facing a potential dispute with your travel agent who are imposing extra charges at the last minute but hopefully I can assist you in resolving the matter before it escalates and you are forced to incur significant further legal costs.
It appears that the travel agent is attempting to vary the original contract from what the parties originally agreed by imposing further charges at the eleventh hour.
Variations to commercial contracts must be agreed by both parties to be effective, otherwise the party attempting to impose and enforce the variation unilaterally is committing a breach of the contract.
You may expressly consent to the variation of the contract and abide by the new terms and price increase.
Alternatively, you may reject the variation and terminate the contract for the travel agent's breach of the contract. You can also claim damages for breach of contract in the civil County Courts for damages for your losses, such as fees you have paid above what was originally agreed.
I shall be delighted to speak to you today if you accept the site’s automatic offer.
Any additional charges for a Premium Service Phone Call are displayed with the site’s option.
To decide if you want a Premium Service Phone Call, you may consider my written answer, you may then accept the offer of a Premium Service Phone Call.
I have not received a notification that you have accepted a Phone Call.
I hope this is a satisfactory initial reply to your question and you understand my recommendations. Please revert to me if you do not understand anything and require clarification of my answer and I shall be delighted to assist.
I can also offer a Premium Service Consultation for an additional fee if you need detailed and bespoke legal advice. If you accept, I will pass you my direct email address and phone number. I can review any relevant documentation and consult with you by telephone for around 20 minutes. This will give you a clearer picture of your legal position and your potential options for progressing the matter to the next stage.
Of course. Have a great weekend and best of luck in resolving the matter.
