Can someone give some help on this question? Would appreciate if the tutor can provide a clear chart or scaffold to solve this type of question in contract law.
Ian and Jo have worked together successfully for some years as professional dancing partners and are engaged to be married. Ian books a holiday for them both with Midi Tours Ltd, explaining to the manager that they are exhausted after a long tour of exhibition dancing and are in need of a good break before their wedding. The price of $2500 each, which Ian pays, is inclusive of all travel and meals and accommodation at the Seaview Luxury Hotel, St Tropez. When they arrive at St Tropez, the hotel has not been built and the Midi representative puts them instead in the Hotel Pis-Aller, a third-rate establishment some miles inland.
They have a miserable time for the first few days and then succumb to food-poisoning after eating a meal prepared in the hotel’s unhygienic kitchen. This causes Jo to have a nervous breakdown which lasts for three months after their return home. The wedding has to be postponed and Ian is unable to earn any income without his dancing partner.
Advise Ian and Jo as to their right to damages from Midi Tours Ltd.
