    Depending on the terms and conditions, Anna, you will probably only lose the deposit. It's a shame because Rhodes is a lovely place and, after everything you've been through over the last few months, you could probably use a holiday :)

    Hope you don't have any problems getting your money back.

    Why not just give it a try Anna? Depending on how much you've already paid and how much you have left to pay of course.


    You may love it!

    Virgin Holidays will "hold" the deposit against a future holiday but I don't know about other companies. It's worth asking though.

    Anna ~ Perhaps cancelling the holiday is a good idea :grouphug:

    You could always go on a city break or to a UK theme park to cheer yourself up :goodvibes

    at 20 weeks out honey you would lose only your deposit. If you had already put travel insurance in place and your gp was willing to state you are unfit to travel (under the circumstances I could not imagine they would refuse) then you could claim this lost deposit back from the insurers.

    I wish you good luck and a speedy recovery.

    i would explan the situation to them and see if you could prehaps move the deposit to another holiday. A city break or something prehaps. My friend had a similar issue not so long ago, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and at the time didnt feel like doing anything whatso ever, the company were really great, they said they couldnt refund the deposit but gave her the rest back. She also got a letter through the post saying they would be willing to use her deposit on any holiday she booked within the next year!

    Hope things improve for you anna!
