Sponsored Breaks hitting the newspapers in UK due to dubious accommodation offers


Sponsored Breaks and Sponsored Weeks are not new to this blog, and we posted articles about them in June (http://wp.me/p1kmoi-1gA ) and October (http://wp.me/p1kmoi-1ok ) last year.

This cold calling fly buy company, offering discounted holiday accommodation was brought to our attention as consumers were told many things that sounded too good to be true and their credit card was quickly charged before they had the opportunity to read the terms and conditions.

Statements such as 5 star luxury accommodation, multiple weeks holidays, ABTA bonded, etc. seem to be the regular pitch on the phone.

Now Sponsored breaks has reached the newspapers and is mentioned in an article from The Telegraph, dated today the 31st of March.

Have a look at the story of Tony and Christine Birch who paid to Sponsored Breaks and were refused a refund when they tried to cancel.
