    The Hubby and I have a trip booked for June...Friday we got the call that he got laid off. (F*CKIN OIL FIELDS) It looks like our only option is to cancel our trip to Temptaion. Has anyone had to do this and are their any penalties?

    We have not had to cancel but we have had to change, penalties just depend on how you booked. Most airlines will give you a credit to be used within the next year. Hopefully you purchased the insurance when you booked your trip. Sorry to hear about your husbands job. Rosa was recently laid off too so we know how it feels. Good luck

    I had a friend that got fired and he is living there selling condo's now.

    Thanks guys, unfortunately I did not take the insurance....his job told us there was NOTHING to worry about. (oh well...live and learn) While we can cancel and use the tickets another time we have decided to just go on the trip and have a week of no worries...it will just be tighter than we thought it was going to be :beerdrink:

    Trip

    Hey guys.
    Thats a great decision, I was just laid off recently and was contemplating cancelling my trip too....however, the trip was paid for and it was just a matter of going down with no spending money, The way I figured it, its all inclusive, Im getting away from the stress of being broke and unemployed, im going to meet some great people, go down and recharge my batteries and come back refreshed and start looking...I leave tomorrow morning , be on the beach by noon....Im going down with like a hundred bucks, but the trip will be worth a million bucks overall, So good luck, Hope he finds a job soon. Ill talk to you all when I get back in 11 days.
    Jim

    Hi, never seen things so bad, they say the 70's where worst, I dont think so. We are okay for now, but have a lot of stock, cant sell it, have real estate can't sell that either. This may be our last trip for a while and plain to have the best trip ever!!!!!!!. Terry

    well i did find one solution....i don't own anything that would do for lingerie night or really anything to wear out if we go to any clubs. So I checked out ebay. I found a dress that I was looking at pre-layoff that was $25-$30 depending on what site you were looking at and i just got it new for $10. So here's hoping I will find more AWESOME deals!!!!
