"Sun" Holiday

    Hi, I have read the "for sale" guide, and am confused by it, so please forgive me if i am doing something wrong, and maybe point me in the right direction. The thing is, i have a 4 night break to "Devon Cliffs" that i now cannot go on. It is for 2a and 2c on 29 June 2009. I have paid the first £60 on it, and had the final bill of £77 this morning.
    Am i allowed to sell it, and if so, can i on here? Thanks.
    Edit, This was booked through "The Sun Newspaper"


    I think you are allowed to sell for the price it has/will cost you...although be careful, sometimes they hold the card info you gave as security for damage etc shen 'you' go...just worth checking if you sell it

    So my guess is no not legally but how would they know unless they ask for ID (which is possible i guess)

    Can she not sell it and just get the people who buy it to adopt their family name for a week as I am sure they will not check as they have their money so why should the park care who uses it!

    Thank you for your replies. I can see that the names might be a problem. :? I really didn't want to loose the £60. Any one else got any ideas? Shall i just put it for sale on here and see what happens? Am i just allowed to put up a post on the "for sale" Sorry for all the questions.:oops:

    to be honest i have noticed people selling these on here before but obviously if you let someone buy it in your name is it really worth the risk for £60. I mean what happens if they cause £500 worth of damage you would get the bill! Unless you could sell it to close family or friends, even then though im sure you could open yourselves up to problems.

    I don't think you'll be allowed to sell it on here (now that we know) the T&Cs make it clear you can't sell it on. You'll have to do it privately and with someone you trust as they will have to pretend to be you...

    hi saw your query and should be able to sell ok, its a case of having to get in touch with the camp you are supposed to be staying at and changing the names with them, as long as the holiday is payed for and all the details are in order there shouldnt be a problem, how many people is the holiday for and staying where, i would be interested myself, you say you have payed £60 and have a outstanding balance of £70 is that for passes ect..
