    Hi we are a group of 8 ladies booked to fly to Malaga on May17 next for a week. Unfortunately one of our ladies is seriously ill in hospital and not able to travel. We have another lady to take her place. What do we do re changing one of the names and is there a charge under these circumstances. Thank you
