Another holiday bites the dust!  :'(  My last hope of getting abroad this year was to be a week in Madeira in September. The flights are going , the hotel is open but the company I paid my deposit to has gone bust! Friends we are going with had paid in full but we`d paid 2/3rds after a messaging experience on their facebook page left me with concerns and they gave me wriggle room. No problem anyway money wise as it is ATOL protected so just waiting for the claim form to materialise but so annoying. never mind - already booked an alternative week in Cornwall with the same friends - what could possibly go wrong?

What a pain!
Sorry to hear this but good news that you can get tie money back.
We are going to Cornwall tomorrow. Looking forward to the break but it is with some trepidation.

A few of the credit card companies are not playing ball with section 75 with holidays saying the company has to be pursued. It`s unchartered territory with so many companies on the brink of going bust and covid being claimed  as  a force majeure. I`m more relaxed about my madeira trip as even if it doesn`t go ahead was booked on one card as one holiday. the Spanish trip was a mix of air tickets and 3 different accommodations booked separately by me , one even being below the threshold for section 75 anyway. having tried to help them by re-arranging to next year has probably made my position tougher as now some have said OK and one steadfastly saying "we`re open - not our fault you`re not able to come.

I'm not sure they can do that. Under the terms of the consumer credit act they have no choice in the matter. It's their job to chase the company not yours. That's the whole point in paying with a credit card.  8)

Sorry Oldboy, yes they can - in fact they have no obligation whatsoever to pay unless or until it can be established absolutely that the original supplier cannot refund - easy if the company is insolvent, in which case the card provider takes on the right to pursue the debt with the trustee or managers of the CVA. Depending on the service/goods not being delivered the period during which the provider has to respond varies depending on the remedy sought - refund, reimbursement, or specific performance.

So in order to have a successful claim against the credit card company you have to establish 1) a breach of contract and 2) failure/refusal to rectify that breach within a reasonable amount of time, often 30 days.

Good luck!

The claim on the credit card rules may be different in France, but in the UK you can claim against the Credit card company directly without going to the company. It's in the consumer credit act. No if's or but's. That's the whole point of paying by credit card.  :tup:

At this time of year there are acres and acres of sunflowers here. They always bring a smile. We don't have a dog, leaping or otherwise, and the cat hardly ever moves. Phone picture with a minor tweak in ACDSee Ultimate.

Dogs really do make us happy! Especially flying ones.
