I booked two 2-bed superior apartments for a holiday departing on 4 July for two weeks. This booking was made December 2013 and paid in full in May 2014. There are 5 adults and two teenagers travelling. Today I received an email from Travel Republic informing me that because of an overbooking the two apartments we had booked were no longer available. They told me that their booking agent were offering a one 3-bedroom apartment instead of the two 2-bed apartments with two rounds of golf as compensation, I honestly cannot believe that TR are doing this and as I explained to them that if I wanted a 3-bed apartment I would have booked a 3-bed apartment. With 7 of us it will mean someone sleeping in the sofa bed. This is not the holiday we had planned.
TR have offered a full refund but the fact is we have 7 flights booked to Faro and two car hires already paid for the dates we were supposedly going on holiday and of course TR say this is not their problem.
How can TR get away this. Everytime I think about their compensation of a round of golf it makes me livid.
