Holiday re-assignment without permission?

Holiday re-assignment without permission?

Postby Limpopo574 » Mon Jan 16, 2017 10:22 am

Here is the situation.

Two parties ,A and B decide they wish to go on a package holiday.

A is the lead passenger.

The holiday is paid for and both parties have paid equal amounts.

They fall out.

A, being the lead passenger, decides to invite someone else on the holiday and re-assigns B's ticket to the other person C.

A has not sought agreement for this transaction.

Would there be sufficient grounds for a civil action to recover the 50% cost of the holiday by B from A ?

Thanks all..

There may well be grounds; you have not given enough information about arrangements between A and B and what was agreed to say whether there are sufficient grounds.

A has made no consultation with B as to how to deal with the disposal of the holiday, nor has A sought any agreement/permissions as to her actions so far.

B cannot contact A due to a legal constraint. There is captured evidence that A attempted to sell on the complete holiday but failed. The departure date has not yet arrived but it is suspected that A may travel either as a sole traveller or change B's ticket to allow another to travel.

We have no information about what was said or agreed at the time the holiday was booked and paid for.

The erm "legal constraint" may be a problem for B in bringing a claim.

Yes indeed, and thanks.

Presumably as the holiday was booked initially for both A and B , the implication would be that they would travel on the same flight and use the same hotel room. A and B both have air tickets booked. A may well have assigned Bs ticket to another person without consulation. The constraint refers to communication only. It seems possible for B to take the flight and arrange alternative accomodation at the other end.

Why does B want that? It puts him/her at risk of being accused of being in breach of the court order or undertaking.

There is a real possibility that A's contract with B may have been frustrated by the order ('constraint?) made against B.

Tere would appear to be enough going on to make the question not answerable.

B should take advice from someone who can come to know the full story.
