Do you know Rav Abergel?
A small yishuv?
They are all Rabonim from North Africa, not the same area where Ovadia yosef comes from.

Sorry, I meant some of the other signatories

Has anyone had luck canceling Orlando vacation rentals? I was booked through a company called Magical Vacations that is refusing to refund now...

I am booked through a company called Vacasa.

They offered me 110% credit and I told them I just want a full refund. They are refusing.

I will try going through cc.

Now that it is clear that all the Israel Pesach programs have been cancelled due to government regulations I would be interested in hearing what refunds others have received from the operators. We received 70% cash refund and 10% voucher. Is there any way to receive the rest of the amount from sources other than the operator (e.g., insurance, government funds)?

CC chargeback? Ask for 30% and say you donít care for the voucher.

The governor put a statewide ban on short term rentals.

Either way they should be forced to cancel.
If they donít have to cash to give you that should their problem as itís supposed to be on their books as a liability until stay.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

110% credit is a joke. They can jack their rates up 30% next year to get people to have to shell out more $$ or forfeit the credit.

Why not? Everyone will have to write off a one year loss, itís still lucrative for the programs that sell out, I imagine thatís more than 10%.

I guess it also depends on the worldís economic situation in a year, but 90% still sounds high.
