Thomson ripoffs

I booked a holiday with Thomson and paid 150 deposit. the holiday was to be in January next year. After 6 days I wanted to cancel the holiday and I was told that I have to pay further 250 to cancel the holiday for next year. My understanding was that the deposit was 150 and not 400 when I booked the holiday. I am going to pay up and cancel the holiday now. Thomson has lost my business for good from now on.

Re: Thomson ripoffs

The detail about the deposit will be on the e mail they send when you first book, I just paid the balance of a deposit for a holiday next year. This is on the paperwork.

"As you have paid less than the deposit under the
low deposit booking scheme the remaining deposit
will be due on cancellation or the next payment date."

Re: Thomson ripoffs

Get thomson to defer the payment for use on another holiday at a later date. Hopefully if they will do that for you, then you won't lose out. A friend of mine has done that several times over the last few years and she hasn't lost out. Worth a try.

Hi shash, I have asked them but the answer is can't do it. I have tried reasoning with them but they won't have it. Pay up for something that I am not going to receive is fraud. You pay for a service or goods. What will I get from Thomson for 400 ? Using terms and conditions to screw money out of you is fraud. Day light robbery and there is nothing i can do about it. Well gutted.

Before paying the extra 250 it might be worth contacting abta

Re: Thomson ripoffs

You dont need to pay anythıng more. Just lose your 150 and dont show up.
Thats what a friend of mine who worked for Thomas Cook told me when I had to cancel a trip.

Re: Thomson ripoffs

Good idea Alison but won't Thompson have the credit card number ? If so, they will just take the money (unless they go into their bank and explain what has happened and maybe they won't allow the extra money to be taken, just a thought) The sickening this is, that Thompson will sell that holiday to someone else and make a huge profit. Not fair !

Re: Thomson ripoffs

Its a contactual part of booking with the low initial deposit, the info is there prior to booking, I would have a good read of ESB's link and also find out if there is a cooling off period for this type of online transaction.
I agree it is unfair.

Re: Thomson ripoffs

I would not be in hurry to pay. break off contact and see what happens. Surely it is a risky business practice to allow someone to make a confirmed booking without the full deposit.
