31st Aug! Is that specific to Italy? I booked earlier flights (not Italy) than that last night..
Have you asked for a refund as they are obliged to give you one?Halifax Travel Insurance are saying that if you are offered a credit note or voucher for your cancelled holiday or part of, and refuse to accept it, you're not covered on insurance.
This seems ridiculous. Finnair have cancelled my flights, what use is a £200 credit voucher for a St Petersburg hotel?
I'll try to claim any way and fight my corner. Otherwise I'll have to go through my CC company.
I booked all parts of the holiday separately but all through Expedia.Have you asked for a refund as they are obliged to give you one?
I have a confirmed refund from Emirates Holidays after asking. It's been just over 5 weeks waiting so I called them and they did say it is due into my account on or before 20th May. I am just hoping it is there and I don't have to chase them. I know it's not within the legal 14 days but I'm giving them a bit of time if it means I do actually get the money back
Personally I'm not risking a holiday this year and will wait until next year. Even though our holiday this Easter which was cancelled was our first proper holiday abroad for maybe 6 years (first with our 5yr old) I'd rather wait for a lot of the restrictions to be fully over even if it is more expensive.
The issue is the flight though surely? Seems silly to social distance at the beach / Theme Park / Restaurant etc if you're going to spend 2-10 hours or whatever breathing redistributed air.I'm guessing it'll massively depend on what type of holidays peeps are thinking of taking, and who with.
Those of you with families wanting a beach type holiday will probably be a big no no for a while to come.
Those who might want to take a holiday to say, some overseas mountains to do some remote solo/hiking with friends will be more inclined to say yes.
Was supposed to be going to Spain to do said holiday in 7 days time but i'm probably going to rearrange for Sep/Oct or/and again in May next year.
Looking to go away at Xmas this year for a change and hoping to find a decent long haul flight deal (the holy grail to find one of those over xmas).
It’s not an airborne transmission though is it? It’s water droplets (or snot or phlegm) so would drop to the ground quite quickly. Air con should be fine but it’s the closed cabin with chance of someone sneezing or coughing on you and droplets landing on you or shared things that you might touch.Theres lots of info out there that suggests the air on a flight gets filtered etc etc, so it might not be a total death trap. See how it goes.
If everyone wore a mask on a plane, how much worse can it be to walking around a supermarket (full on hundreds of people) without one..
Like i say, everyone will feel different about the risk factor.
I am not doubting you, but this is not how Expedia treated us. We cancelled a few hotels in California, some were non-refundable, but the Expedia agent phoned the hotels directly to ask if they would waive this, which they did.The St Petersburg Hotel is non-refundable, however Expedia emailed me to say they've offered a voucher (JUST for that hotel). It seems wrong that because of the hotel is choosing to offer me a voucher for my non-refundable booking that I'm now going to lose out on £200!
Just to update this:I am not doubting you, but this is not how Expedia treated us. We cancelled a few hotels in California, some were non-refundable, but the Expedia agent phoned the hotels directly to ask if they would waive this, which they did.
For a couple of UK hotels (to visit family etc) that were cancelled, they have given a voucher for the amount + 10% for any future booking with an expiry date of 30th December 2050.
It seems strange that you have been treated differently.
