    Low deposit holiday myth? 3rd Mar 17 at 2:27 PM
    My student daughter and her boyfriend booked a holiday paying a low deposit. She was given the date by which the holiday needed to be paid in full. They've now split up and neither wants the holiday. When she tried to cancel, she was told that they had paid a low deposit and if they want to cancel they will have to pay another 300. The invoice from the company only mentions the full balance being due.
    How can the company get away with this? If they are offering low deposit holidays, then the deposit should be low. There has never been any mention of any requirement to pay an additional deposit until now. Anyone know of the legal position?

    That crowd-funding beggars belief.
    No wonder there's 0 money raised.
