I'm quite uneasy as bookcyprus have just asked us for a 'security deposit' of up to £500 on arrival at our 4 star accommodation next month. This is almost the cost of the entire holiday (flights and accommodation) and I'm wondering if we have been the victim of some sort of scam. This was meant to be a cheap, last-minute break for me and my husband after a very stressful few months. We haven't had a holiday in a while but had wonderful memories of Cyprus from 20 years ago, which is why I booked this. I've emailed the company and the booking agent and will write to the Daily Telegraph's advice column if I have to but would very much appreciate any advice/support from some more seasoned travellers out there who may have used this company. Thank you.
