Check on your terms and conditions on the paperwork you have been given already to see what it says on there.

Also, be on the telephone 1st thing in the morning! :scared1:

Hope you get it sorted, let us know how you get on!! Fingers crossed for you!! :wizard:

Who have you booked with? If its Virgin you can pay online under "manage my booking" and still get it done today.

You will be fine, they alway send letters out if you miss the date.

You will be fine - we paid our holiday about 6 days late, but I did request it and they were fine about it:thumbsup2

they dont normally cancel it till around 2 weeks after the due date, they send letters normally first to warn you

Thank you all for your reassurance.

However, a special thank you to Tink. I had booked direct with Disney and having read the terms and conditions it stated that "payment must be made 8 weeks out and that no reminds will be issued and cancel may ensue if monies are not recieved".

Realistically I never thought they would cancel our holiday over just one day, but I was then advised to check if I could pay on line which I did at 11.45pm last night, so all sorted, stress over.:thumbsup2

Thank you all again

Oh I'm so pleased you managed to get it sorted out last night! :hug:

Would have been awful to have them cancel over one day, least you got to pay on-line :goodvibes

I had reminders sent after I had missed a payment not before though, (I had canceled but they hadn't done it)

Most TAs will give you a couple of days leeway these days.

Most TA's ask for the money around 2-4 weeks before the balance is due to the holiday company. This gives them a chance to

1) get the interest on banking your money before they pay the balance due
2) time to sort out the late payers - they get nothing if you cancel so would rather you paid a week late than cancel completely.

I doubt any agency would cancel if you were just 1 day late - they would rather have you pay than them cancel your hols and take your money elsewhere!!!

Let the serious planning begin now its all paid for:banana::banana:

I had a smilar problem.
We are going for the first time to WDW and this is also the first time that I booked with WDW directly.

When I booked I hade to make a 100 Pound deposit.

And then the system told me that the rest is due on 9th August and I assumed that they would charge my credit card again. But yesterday I received a reminder letter from WDW telling me that my payment is due.

This was completely new to me. I thought they would just charge my credit card again.

But now I know better and so I made the rest of the payment online. But this is very strange: Why do I have to make the rest of the payment by myself? Why do they not charge my credit card again like all other companies would do?

It could be to prevent credit card fraud there's a lot of it going on at the moment particularly in London and Birmingham , or so our CC company told us last month:confused3 They need to check any transactions that flag up as a possible fraud too.

You have authorised them to take 100 deposit to secure the holiday. You have every right to cancel and just loose 100.

The company has no authorisation to debit your card for the remainder until you tell them to do so. Much safer this way as if they did and you had been thinking about cancelling then you would be fighting them for your money back. Also you may want to use a different card/payment method etc. :thumbsup2

Glad you got it sorted
I did exactly the same last year. After over 12 months planning for some reason i just had the final payment date being a week later than what it was. I realised about 7pm that night and was in a total flap until the day after and managed to stop sobbing enough to give the holiday firm my bank details :rotfl:
Oh I can laugh now, but it wasn't so funny at the time :)
