Sorry, My question is that I booked a Holiday to Rarotonga
Sorry, My question is that I booked a Holiday to Rarotonga before we were hit by Covid-19 and due to these circumstances we could not travel. I was required by the accommodation provider that a 1 nights non refundable payment of $175.00 was required. I paid the vendor in good faith $500.00 to which they are going to reimburse me the sum of $375.00. What I need to know is can they legally keep this 1 nights deposit when due to the virus there was no way that any one was going to travel from NZ and that the vendor only made a book entry . … read more

I have a query regarding an overseas trip I had booked which
I have a query regarding an overseas trip I had booked which has been postponed due to COVID19. T&C's for the trip explain no refund and non transferrable. I am trying to decipher if this is worth getting a lawyer involved. My trip has so far cost me in the vicinty of $16,000. It has now been postponed to March 21 and they have advised I could incur extra charges now due to what has happened with the pandemic situation worldwide. I have advised I cannot afford any further expenses. They have advised today that if the trip cannot go ahead in March of 21 it will be pushed out again. The company is in no position to be refunding money as all of their suppliers have offered deferment, not refund. I cannot claim through my insurance as it had the pandemic exclusion clause in it. I am in Invercargill. … read more
