    Automated payments - warning 5th Jan 18 at 9:56 AM
    I have booked many holiday cottages through Tripadvisor, normally paying the balance a couple of days before the deadline date. Most recently I booked a place for a Christmas break. I paid the deposit and the deadline for the balance was 23 November. On the 9th I had an email saying that the "trip balance will be charged on ". The date field was blank. I just assumed that payment would be taken on the agreed date, 23 November. I was horrified to find that payment was taken in the 13th, leaving an unplanned hole in my account. Is this actually legal?
