Consumer Protection Act 68 of 2008: Consumer’s right to cancel advance reservation, booking or order

A consumer has a right to cancel an advance reservation, booking or order. The act allows a supplier to require a reasonable deposit in advance and impose a reasonable charge for cancellation. But, the act protects the consumer against cancellation charges in the case of death or hospitalization of the specific person for who the transaction was made. Not applicable to special order goods though.
