    There are no implications, you travel as planned, if the 4th person has cancelled for insurable reasons, they can make a claim for their losses. If not, the rest of you go and have a great holiday

    Could you trawl around for a substitute fourth person ?

    Do I need to let the airline know?

    As long as the other passenger doesn't expect any of their money back from you it's no issue. They'll need to claim on their insurance if it's something they can claim for.

    If you do cancel their flight they can get a very small tax refund (only a few pounds), it may not be worth it though. Hotel is no issue, it just means you have more room!
