    What would you do....

    Basically me and 4 mates decided to go on a mini lads holiday away just in the UK.

    However 3 people dropped out all in the last 2 weeks, stating they are busy, can't get the time off work etc.

    They have already paid me the money for the hotels and so forth.

    They said can't they get a refund, but everything was booked in advance with not a refund option to make it as cheap as possible.

    I could cancel the travel arrangements which means everyone get about 25% of their money back. Or should I just go with me and the only other friend going and not worry about them

    Thanks!

    IMO they agreed to the holiday and the conditions so they should lose their money and you should go away. It's not your fault that they want to change the deal now.

    offer it to others

    I can come with you instead? I'm only 50, young and hip. And I know how to twerk.

    Why should you lose money just because they can't go? Tell them that the only way they can recoup their money is if they can find someone to take their place. Failing that, they lose their money and you go with the other friend.

    if they knew the deal was non refundable then no they knew the risks. best idea is for them to try sell there place on the trip to a friend who can go

    When is it, and where are you going?

    I'll pay half of what one paid, so they get half the money back on one place. I coud do with a wee holiday

    This.

    I'd go. You could offer their place to others at discount. Seems a shame to waste it.

    I'll come. 37/male/6ft/Fuzzy Navel.

    I'll bring a bonus of having you constantly swamped by women.

    And I'll tuck you in.

    let them try and sell the holiday to their mates if they can't find anyone to go,they lose the money but you still go.

    Looks like new mates will be required, whatever way you decide to go this is the end of you lot..... oO

    When and where is this holiday?

    Just got this text:-

    Mate, you're not going to believe this, I've just won a competition on Radio 1 for a holiday to Greece! Got £2000 spending money and I can take 5 mates. I know it's short notice but if you're free from 1st August to 15th august, can you put my bin out?

    And I'll tuck you in.

    Nothing ridiculous about it, simply means be quiet.You should try and learn different languages as it comes in handy at times.

    I know what it means - as old as I am I still know how to use Google. It's just such a random response to a perfectly legitimate comment.

    Maybe you could explain the 2nd one (which I added later)? Google seems to struggle with that one.

    Is it one of those 'drinking' holidays where everybody drinks alcoholic drinks every day?

    What would you do....



    Go without them, they've dropped out.

    My favourite drink is ribena on the rocks.
