Any Wise Owls Able To Help A Friend Of Mine?
I have just found out that the flight I have booked to fly to Cyprus at Easter has been cancelled, and the route no longer exists. The airline have also informed me that because it is Easter and therefore busy, we cannot transfer to any other route as they are all full.
I've paid a deposit on a villa that we are now unable to use as the only flights available are at the wrong time and four times the price of the flights originally booked.
Can anyone offer any advice re getting the deposit back? Obviously I don't expect the owner of the villa to pay it back, it's not his fault.
I feel the airline should take some responsibility, or do I pursue it with my insurance company?
Gutted, so looking forward to a break
She booked flights via credit card so may have some comeback there but the villa has been paid direct with the owner.
Anyone know if there is an alternative, flying from the UK to Turkey or Greece then a ferry option? Reply to this
Go on wikipedia.com and type the airport name.....for info, they have 2 different international airports in Cyprus, one on each side of the island....you may find alternativeairlines flying there. Reply to this
Have you tried the package holiday flights? You might get a route with them. It wouldn't refund your flight necessarily, but you would get the villa. Reply to this
As for the refund, I am not to sure about all of that. Reply to this
