‘CHRISTINA Cooke from Birmingham had read the reports in the papers and seen the ads. She had duly come to the conclusion that the time was ripe for her to book a holiday over the Internet.

So she got online and searched the world wide web for three weeks. And then she found the perfect break. It was “Costa Del Sol, here we come!”

And Benalmadena’s Avalon Hotelpark looked the business. Until that is until Christina, 28, partner Mark, 32, and daughters Charlotte, eight, and Alice arrived. Why was their family name not on any booking register? And where was Avalon Hotelpark?

Oh, there it is – in Germany.

Christina said: ”I’ve got the wrong address before but never the wrong country. I thought I was being clever by cutting out the middle man. I’d managed to confuse the addresses.”’
