VAT Rate Increase

Postby FionaMc17 » Wed Oct 10, 2018 8:33 pm

Hi ladies,

Just wondering has anyone else’s wedding package price increased for weddings in 2019 due to the increased VAT rate from yesterday budget?

Hi,

I just received an email from my hotel saying the package price and room prices have to increase because of the vat increase. I'm really annoyed about this as I think that for weddings already booked they could have absorbed the cost! How much did yours increase by ?

I have my wedding booked with that last 2 years and this is the second time they've raised the price on us. If I didn't have all the other vendors booked, I'd be tempted to cancel this venue.

I'm also very disappointed that they haven't absorbed the cost for weddings already booked.

Yes it’s such a pity they can’t just absorb the cost at this point. I checked my contract and it does state ‘plus VAT which is subject to change’ my package has gone up €3 per person which overall adds up ☹️

Same thing happened us last week. Getting married in Johnstown estate next year. 5 of my group all getting married next year and ours is the only hotel who increased the price. Sickening.

Ladies has anyone had any luck stopping the increase? I have a signed contract stating all inclusive and there is nowhere in the terms and conditions giving them a get out clause. My pricing in total is increasing by almost €1000. This is just beyond a joke. I chose my venue as it was an all inclusive package and am only 15 weeks out of the wedding. >:o(

My hotel have just contacted me with this increase also. So fustrating. Can they do this legally if not stated in signed contact? Does anyone have any legal info on it?
