    Teletext holiday support 12th Feb 18 at 4:18 PM
    I recently booked a holiday to Egypt with Teletext Holidays (31/01/2018) travelling on the 30/03/18. a few days after booking my partner had seen some news stories about two tourists being stabbed to death at the resort we planned to visit and now does not want to travel with her children. I contacted Teletext customer services and asked we can transfer to another location using the same airline and the deposits already paid. they have told me two different stories, one was it should be ok and the second when I chose a location was I would have to pay the whole flight costs as a cancellation cost this will be £3,000???


    All I want to do is transfer to another hotel and country and use the same airline?? is there anything I can do?

    You may be able to change the resort/hotel but you would have to fly to the same destination/same dates/same airline to avoid a penalty. It would be very unlikely that you can transfer the flight to new route even if staying with the same airline.
