My Ferry company have already said I can shift the dates, so not too much hassle.

Looks like the company we have booked with aren’t offering refunds even if you can’t make the new dates (which we can’t)only a voucher which appears to be pointless in our case. Not got round to calling yet going to give it a few days to allow call volumes to die down.

Where do people stand legally if they want a refund not a credit note/voucher (so I know where I stand when I do call them). Thankfully it has been paid for on a credit card so that might be a route to go down if needs be.

The voucher does give you 2021 and 2022 Le Mans though if you can't make September

I’d rather not say right now due to name and shame rules and I haven’t spoken to them yet. A bit of research seems to suggest I don’t have to accept the voucher.

Got to wait to talk with MrsMB140 hopefully we might be able to rearrange stuff so we can go in September. If not then we will have to decide what we want. I just want to be armed with the facts beforehand.

The fact you can remember it must be worth a pass...

It's an odd one isn't it really, like my insurance, they say no refunds on postponement, only if and when it's called a cancellation. but the original purchase was made on the understanding that the event takes place between two defined dates in June, not September.

It’s quite weird isn’t it. Checking online via money.co.uk seems to imply that we entered a contract which the travel company can no longer satisfy (regardless of if it’s there fault), therefore we are entitled to a refund. Until we have spoken to them I’m not going to worry too much. I’m pretty certain between the travel insurance, credit card payment method and what appears to be protection under the law then we should get our money back. Failing that there is always the social media angle.
