Travel advice: ‘We don’t want to change hotels’

Gill Charlton assists a couple offered ‘alternative’ accommodation; and advises on seeing the Yangtze river and hand luggage limits.


In January, my wife and I booked a package holiday with Flexibletrips to the Marina Luz Hotel in C’an Pastilla, Majorca, departing on September 6. The booking was made through our local Thomas Cook travel agency.

In early April we paid the outstanding balance for the holiday. It was not until April 30 that my wife received a call from Thomas Cook to say that “for contractual reasons” we could no longer stay at the Marina Luz Hotel.

We were offered an alternative, but we do not want to stay anywhere else. This was to be our 11th visit to the hotel, which is the reason we go to Majorca.
