    Highstreet Robbery!


    #2
    Nice Travel Agent, eh?

    Sounds like you should have paid the full price right away.
    Not that that would help you now...


    Talk about stuck between a rock and a hard place!
    I'd take legal counsel on the matter if I were you.
    Give your lawyer a quick ring.

      Robbery is right.

      Surely when you purchase at an advertised price and pay a deposit, that is a contract. The only change in price could be in currency fluctuation which does not apply in your case.

      As advised in previous post , call your lawyer.

        Something not quite right here. Paying a deposit should guarantee the price unless, and maybe we havn't been given all the facts, there was a caveat on the booking: fuel surcharges spring to mind

          This booking was for the final OV voyage ~ the booking system crashed due to demand, people had thought they had paid deposits at the prices they had been quoted but a lot of agents seem to have mislead their clients and have booked them onboard when reservations opened again a week later but at a much higher price.

          I think Carnival realised they were onto a winner so they shut down their booking system tweaked the prices upwards and watched a few days later as the money rolled in!

          This poster is not the first to complain that the price they have paid (need to pay) is considerably higher than that which was originally quoted ~ many people with slightly more scrupulous agents pulled their bookings rather than pay the higher prices.

              As I said, "we were not given the whole story".
