Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many people’s plans have been canceled, causing widespread disappointment. With the risk of catching and spreading the virus, traveling and going on holiday is not advisable during this time. However, some airlines, such as British Airways, EasyJet, and Virgin Atlantic, are offering passengers the opportunity to rebook their flights free of charge.
Expedia UK, an online travel agency, has acknowledged the impact of the coronavirus on the travel industry, causing an increase in customer service requests. Although the company is making every effort to meet customer needs, long wait times may be inevitable. They continue to express their belief that travel is a positive force that brings people together and enriches their lives.
Certain hotels in areas under quarantine are providing customers with refunds or the option to reschedule their stay for a safer time in the future. However, the extent to which travel insurance policies cover costs like hotel rooms and car rentals varies depending on the specific insurer and situation.
Unfortunately, not all airlines treat their customers fairly. For instance, Ryanair has been accused of overcharging customers when rebooking canceled flights, while Wizz Air has been criticized for continuing to charge passengers to rebook flights to countries whose borders are closed.
Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, travel enthusiasts can still enjoy browsing photos of their dream destinations. However, even the best-planned vacations can sometimes turn out to be a fail, as demonstrated by this list of unsuccessful travel pics.
