Cheers. So we’ve been “delayed” until tomorrow afternoon. They won’t put us up in a hotel because all hotels are fully booked so they said find own overnight accommodation. Hilton Vilamoura is fully booked so booked into the Conrad. Hopefully will reimburse everything. We’re not the only ones booked into the Conrad from the flight.

Hope you make it today!

I’d hold any evidence you have of BA’s refusal and the reason, as well as evidence of the fullness of other hotels (screenshot etc) – this could be useful if they then baulk at paying the full amoount of your claim for a relatively upscale (and so presumably out of their nominal budget) hotel.

Thanks. I didn’t do that, simply because by the time we were told, I just did the first instinctive thing given I had 2 small children by that point getting very fractious and opened my Hilton app to try book at the Hilton Vilamoura where we had been staying. Unfortunately it was fully booked so grabbed the Conrad. Was worried we’d have nowhere to sleep as we were told everywhere was fully booked by BA.
