Anyone else travelling with MW this season? Had the email requesting more money ? Is this just MW or is anyone aware of other package companies doing the same? Am pretty cross but aware that not much sympathy will come my way as , well, skiing ain't cheap! But as we paid up in full and budgeted for that, I am cross to be asked for more....
Fucking hell! If those fuckers can't hedge their currency they shouldn't be in business. I'd tell them to fuck off and let them serve me with something legal... Their t&c's may well contain something, but I'd stand firm until they tried to back out of the contract.
There is no excuse, the Euro has been (very fucking recently) at the level we see now. Awful business.
.. as you can tell, that's rattled my cage. Sorry OP, that is totally shit from a company purporting to be at the better end of the package market.
They had our full balance in August rather than the usual 8 weeks before departure (we go in April) so the fact they have had our money since then and now ask for an extra £30-£50 more per person, is beyond cheeky. dH says we should be firm and not pay. I will await the "invoice" and battle it out I think.
Any other companies done this? Esprit? Crystal? Inghams? I would be interested to hear.
The travel regulations appear to allow this. Mark Warner T&C state exchange rates shown which are taken from the Financial Times Guide to World Currencies on the applicable date and known costs on that date. My understanding is that these were based as October 2012 - has anyone challenged the reduction in oil prices since that time and why there is no refund for that, as they should offer in their T&C?
