Do you have to cancel your Love Holidays booking?
Did you book a holiday with Love Holidays which you need to cancel? The good news is that Love Holidays allow cancellations. The bad news is that they change fees and some components of your holiday may not be cancelled at all.
You can cancel any time before departure as long as you pay Love Holidays cancellation fees. These fees include paying any difference between the cancellation fee and the non-refundable deposit you paid at the beginning of your booking. There is typically a difference to be paid if you picked the “low deposit” option at the time of your booking. As long as you have access to your LOV reference number and the head passenger’s name, you can log on to Love Holiday’s website and go to Manage My Booking and proceed with the cancellation. The system will then tell you exactly how much you will be able to get as a refund after you cancel. Service providers may charge amendment charges which may be as much as 100% of the cost of the holiday and will normally increase closer to the date of departure. Hotel accommodations can sometimes be cancelled at no additional cost, but some may charge a cancellation fee. Furthermore, if you had selected a non-refundable hotel room from the start then there will be no refund after you cancel. Flights are non-refundable. So, yes you can cancel your trip, but you may not be able to recover much.
Additionally, you have to pay the Love Holidays cancellation fee of £75 per package booking. This is in addition to any other cancellation fees charged by hotels and airlines. Hotel only bookings will be faced with a £25 cancellation fee as well as any charges from the hotel itself. That being said, cancellations for accommodations is dependent on whether or not you booked a refundable or nonrefundable room. Flights are 100% non-refundable through Love Holiday, including the price for baggage and insurance.
Do you think that that’s quite expensive? Do you want to recover more from your cancelled holiday? Many people are not aware of this, but you have an alternative to cancelling your Love Holidays booking– sell it to another person and get your refund that way. If this sounds like the better option, read the last section below ‘Can I sell my Love Holidays booking’. SpareFare can help you find a buyer for your holiday.
