We informed the site that we would be cancelling and were in the circumstances prepared to loose the deposit. We were a bit peeved to find they not only intend retaining the deposit but want a further 31 cancellation charge. Is this behaviour common or are we unlucky?

I know i am saying this with hindsight but it might help otheres.

Maybe one should say 'we are prevented by law from travelling' instead of cancellation' explaining that your visit to them was partof a 10 week tour, starting next week.
