Last Minute. com Cancellation Charges

Recommended Posts

I have booked a Hotel/Flights Package with the above paying a 10% deposit with the balance due a month before travel next August.


On looking at Cancellation Charges they virtually say 100% 84 days out plus.


According to the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements regulations 2018 - termination fees have to be "Reasonable and Justifiable"


I find it hard to comprehend how last minutes charges could fall into the above description.


For example the hotel is available on Booking.com for our dates with no pre-payment and free cancellation up to the day before arrival.


I'm not sure of their arrangement with BA but the tickets we reserved have doubled in price in the last week and could easily be resold.


I can't find any anecdotal evidence or Court Cases relating to them trying to collect Cancellation Charges from people who have not already paid the full balance and cancel. If I were to cancel 8 months out is it likely they would pursue me for the remaining balance.
