Last night I was using Travelsupermarket.com to find me a relatively inexpensive hotel in London in June and to my surprise four different agencies were showing a price of about £20.00 for a certain 5 star hotel in Mayfair. I thought there is no way they will accept such a booking, however I thought it worth a punt, so I gave my credit card details to one of them to pay immediately in full, I received an acknowledgement of my booking and then shortly after that a confirmation e-mail including the hotel voucher to hand over on the day of the stay. It stated "YOUR BOOKING IS CONFIRMED AS FOLLOWS... [blah, blah]". Shortly after that the price on all four agencies shot up to about £200.
Now, I know it is a long shot that this will not be cancelled in due course, but as they have claimed payment and sent me a confirmation email with the voucher is this legally binding? I guess probably not as they have the following clause in their T&Cs:
"Where inaccuracies relate to the understatement of the price of a specific product you will be offered either a full refund of money paid on that booking only or the opportunity to maintain that booking on receipt of the additional payment which is necessary."
What do people think? Do I have a chance?!
