My friend last week cancelled his flight portion with expedia on the day of travel, and after them minus-ing a $150 cancellation fee, he was left with about $50 credit for a future flight.
 THEN, today suddenly Expedia billed him $300 :(

I wonder how many people who cancelled part of their trip will be hit with this charge...

In order to avoid this, I would've recommended for him to speak to Jetblue directly to see if they could've credited him for not taking the flight. But the fact that he spoke to Expedia, is a no-no for me, since it clearly said in the terms that cancelling part of the itinery would cause a forfeit of the $300 gift coupon.

I think if you cancel they will charge you the $300.  When I called up and asked to change to a different hotel, I was told that they would charge me.  When I argued with them about it, they finally allowed me to do so.

Why not try calling up the helicopter co. directly?

Dan is something of a celebrity now at the kosher restaurants there. the owner of Sababa as well as the staff at Red Dragon were all talking about it this week. Dan should go back for another visit just to collect compliments

If this helicopter ride is just a tour, and not a flight to somewhere, will they bother asking for ID?

Yes, they finally backed down when I asked to speak with a supervisor after leaving me on hold for some 20 min

ok. finally got a good rep on the phone. straight away he says, "well we'll have to cancel the activity & rebook." "ok." "so you'll be refunded the full amount to your card." "ok"

and he does the refund. now it says in my old itinerary:
Quote
MANCUNIAN   Adult    Add Frequent Flyer number(s)    C$256.66
Flight taxes/fees, Taxes & Fees   C$33.87
Discount   -C$290.53
Change charge (18 Dec 2010)   C$-152.52
Total amount charged   C$-152.52

question is if they're gonna charge me 300 now...
