May Have to Change Travel Dates-Should we Change Itinerary?

My friend and I are scheduled to visit Portugal 11/3-11/17. Due to medical issues, we may have to postpone until next spring (April or early May, June) or fall (Oct or Nov). The trip we planned for Nov includes

Lisbon, Sintra area, Conimbriga, Serra da Estrella, Marvao, Evora, the Algarve, and points in between. We didn't plan on visiting more northern parts of Portugal because we anticipated wet, cooler weather.

If we have to reschedule, when should we go and should we reroute our trip?

What happens when one needs to postpone a holiday after everything has been booked. Do you incur lots of penalties from the airline and hotels?

Vannah-

Continental charges a $200 per ticket change fee. In terms of hotels, most of the ones we booked only require 48 hours cancellation notice. In one instance we booked through a service and will lose the deposit of about 12E.

Stillhouse: suze gave you good advice. You should re-post w/ a better title. "May Have to Change Travel Dates-Should we Change Itinerary?" could be asking anything about anywhere in Europe.

I'd try something like "Autumn Portugal itinerary. Rescheduling to Spring. Should we change anything?"

Seems wordy but that is what you are asking about . . . . .
