    Hi I bought a holiday from on the beach and they phoned me a week after paying to say my room was no longer available but if I paid an extra 125 they can offer me an upgrade I neither want or need,, and don't originally purchase - can they do this and can I get a refund as their policy seems to be to simply do as they please once you pay them

    Youve posted this in the Report Holiday Deals, Bargains & Special Offers forum, which is probably why you had no replies.

    Onthebeach are known for this. Often their website isnt showing live availability and after you book then someone has to manually process the booking. Its more often flights that cause the issue though.

    It will be somewhere in their T&Cs Im sure. It is poor service though waiting a week to tell you. Your flights will likely be non-refundable once booked but see how much the hotel part is. Look on other websites to see if you can rebook your hotel with another company and get your money back from OTB.
