          i booked your property through Travel Republic but there was a problem with my VISA. that is fixed now, but TR only gives a phone number to use to try and correct the situation which i don't have. i'm not sure what to do. am looking for accommodation 7 oct-9oct for 2 adults and one 17 year old. let me know what you think? should i book it again through TR and let the other one expire? sorry for the trouble
