Change name on BA holiday - cost?

Please help. I have a BA holiday booked (Fly Drive to Italy in October; no hotel). If I want to change the name of one passenger:
a. Is this possible?
b. How much will the change cost?
- Thanks in advance to all knowledgeable members.

Just to be very clear, because it matters.

You say that you want to change the name of a passenger. Is it that it is a different person or that there is a typo or somesuch in the passenger's name. If it really is changing the name of a passenger, is this a middle initial or some other minor issue?

Further to the above, is it because someone has changed their name on marriage/divorce/by deed poll?

It is a voluntary change (different person).

Changing the the person and name on a BA Holiday booking is a perk of the package.

It cost £150 when I did it last year and the person was changed over quickly. They took the payment straight away and it couldn’t be added to the outstanding balance.

It only cost £60 when I did this on a LGW-BCN Y booking. Perhaps it depends on the destination and class of travel. This was a complete passenger change as the guy I was travelling with initially had hurt himself so couldnít do the race.

Thats interesting I didnít realise they had a variable charge. Mine was a LHR-SJC-SFO-LHR in J.
