    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.

    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

    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:
