Quick Question Thread


Recommended Posts

Since the update on here when reading threads which have time gaps between posts of more than 1 week, the forum tells you there's a gap there with "2 weeks later...". Does anyone else read this in the Spongebob narrator voice or is it just me that is afflicted here?

Had an Airbnb booked for a large group of us in a couple of weeks time. Sadly one of the group has had a death in the close family and the funeral will be during it so we aren’t able to go. The host has refused to move dates, so now in touch with Airbnb about extenuating circumstances. Has anyone dealt with a situation like this before? How likely is it we’d get a refund?

Apparently a death is not covered under extenuating circumstances. f**k off Airbnb, 2 grand gone.

Would travel insurance not cover it?

Travel insurance I’ve got doesn’t cover if a travelling companion’s family member dies. Only my family or the people that were due to travel on the trip.

What about the companions travel insurance?

No idea if he’s got any, and reluctant to ask him about in the days after the shocking death of a parent.

Aye, that's a tough one to deal with. You or anyone you know got a decent social media following, could try and shame Airbnb on twitter or something. Going public often yields decent results.

Yeah it’s just one of these awkward situations. It was a big group going and a lot of us knew the parent well so everyone is pretty upset about it, so in the grand scheme of things the money doesn’t matter, but just thought there would be some sort of policy to cover things like this.

Only get out I can see is if one of you manages to catch covid or finds a way of simulating it so you all have to isolate. Remember trying to cancel a holiday to Cuba when my Dad was about to go and British Airways and Virgin were utter c***s. The Virgin guy said not to worry, I could find a phone signal in Havana to keep in touch.

Told this before on here but I cancelled with On The Beach as myum went downhill faster than we thought and ended up in a hospice. Obviously I wasnt going anywhere so binned the holiday and the chew I got off them was absolutely unreal. They made me get a doctors letter from my mums doctor, this is after she died. They then claimed that based on what the doctor said, I should never have booked it.

I was absolutely fucking fuming and properly lost the plot on the phone to them, then settled down and knocked out a few emails to them where I rinsed them pretty thoroughly.

It all got settled when they got back to me and said that although they were absolutely in the right throughout it all, and I was in no way entitled to anything, they were paying me a refund out of "goodwill". That email just about blew my head clean off but I just left it as they had sent back the money. Iv never been so angry in my life though as some twat telling me I should have seen it coming.

Wanted a straw poll of the P&B massive about a wee thing. I placed an order with an online drinks company (one which I use fairly regularly) which included a case of Schweppes Spicy Ginger Beer. The order arrived with a case of Schweppes Ginger Ale instead. Emailed them to let them know the problem and they have offered that I keep the Ginger Ale and they give me a tenner discount voucher for the next order. I don't use Ginger Ale for anything so wondered if you big lads thought their offer was fair or if I should push for my original order....which I do really want.

What’s the cost of a case of ginger beer? 

It's the wee bottles, 18cl. They cost 17.50 euros from this place. Not available in the shops here (Italy).

ETA- 24 x 18cl.

Are they refunding you for the spicy ginger beer Aswell or is it keep the ginger ale and we will give you a tenner off your next order ?  Cause if they aren’t you are going to have to pay another 7.50 to get them after using your discount which would leave you out of pocket .

I occasionally drink ginger ale.  Send me a PM and attach the case.

Thanks.
