Ok so if you and youe partner were going away with another couple and the other woman was main organiser. She had been trying to get reasonable flights etc but was proving tricky. She eventually found flights for a good price and checked with the you if ok to book and it was so she did.
She also checked it was ok to get certain tickets to an event that had already been agreed (including price), and booked these also. So the other woman had paid out almost £700 for you and your partner. She then texted you to say 'yay, all done, flights, event booked etc, looking forward to it etc etc'.

How would you respond?

'Thanks, how can I transfer the money we owe?'.

I'm guessing the other person is being difficult?

I'm guessing your friend didn't reply with something like "Yay! How would you like me to pay you back - do you have details for BACS?"

WickedWax Wed 13-Jan-16 15:22:30

Great - what do we owe you, how do you want to be paid - cash, cheque?

What everyone else said.

Not the response you got I assume?

I'd respond with a huge thanks for organising and immediately ask how I can transfer our share of the costs to her.

kissmethere Wed 13-Jan-16 15:29:31

Thanks how can I get the money to you? Bank transfer etc...

fitzbilly Wed 13-Jan-16 15:30:41

Brilliant, thank you, let us know what we owe you and how to pay.

icanteven Wed 13-Jan-16 15:35:44

Seeing as she evidently hasn't sent that reply, you can now follow it up with.

"Here are my bank details - xxxxxx/xxxxxxxx and the account is in my own full name, Happy Girl-Now. Can you transfer the money before the weekend please, as I clear that card on the 16th of the month? Thank you!"

MamaLazarou Wed 13-Jan-16 15:37:10

I would say, 'Thank you for organising everything - how much do I owe you?'.

WorldsBiggestGrotbag Wed 13-Jan-16 15:39:07

Fab, thanks for organising. Send me your bank details and I'll pay you straight away.

variousthings Wed 13-Jan-16 15:42:23

Why didn't you give her details of how to give you the money?

NeuNewNouveau Wed 13-Jan-16 15:42:59

Same as everyone else. I assume you are the organiser and she said something along the the lines of oops, can't afford to pay you for a while?

littlemermaid80 Wed 13-Jan-16 15:57:23

My response would be"Thanks so much for doing it, really appreciate it. Text bank dets and will pay later. Xxx"

SevenOfNineTrue Wed 13-Jan-16 15:58:27

Like everyone else but, after being burned before, I never book now until I have the money or they are very close, trusted friends.

ExitPursuedByABear Wed 13-Jan-16 16:00:23

What they all said ^^

ShowYourSeams Wed 13-Jan-16 16:02:37

Don't have us in suspense OP! What did she say?!

OurBlanche Wed 13-Jan-16 16:03:45

I would now be checking I had all texts and would mentally prepare myself for a small claims court experience.

But yes, I would initially be exchanging bank detail texts.

MissBattleaxe Wed 13-Jan-16 16:04:10

Assuming this is a reverse, then yes, the obviosu reponse is "thank you very much. Let me know your a/c and sort code so I can pay you. xx"

EssentialHummus Wed 13-Jan-16 16:04:50

OP was the one organising things, wasn't she? sad

araiba Wed 13-Jan-16 16:06:00

My cat's breath smells like cat food.

eddielizzard Wed 13-Jan-16 16:08:09

thanks! you're amazing! what are your bank details?

TreadSoftlyOnMyDreams Wed 13-Jan-16 16:08:16

Id say "Brilliant, really looking forward to it. Thanks for doing all the hard work to organise it. Send me your bank details. "

expatinscotland Wed 13-Jan-16 16:10:15

Let me guess, they don't want to pay you.
