When a trip gets cancelled due to COVID-19, travel businesses that use WeTravel's payment system are expected to offer refunds or vouchers for future travel.
Refunds for trips due to COVID-19
If you’re concerned about attending a trip due to COVID-19, contact the trip organizer to see what refund options are available.
Travel businesses that use WeTravel set their own cancellation and refund policies.
Due to the unprecedented nature of the COVID-19 situation, many travel businesses have already paid their vendors (airlines, hotels, bus companies, etc...) and are unable to receive cash refunds from these vendors. Therefore, some might not be able to provide cash refunds. During COVID-19, the following are possible refund options:
- Postponing of the group trip to a future date (in coordination with Group Leaders)
- Vouchers for future travel
- A combination of cash refunds and vouchers for future travel
Please note that trip cancellations are in most cases related to government prohibitions on travel. Recent Visa/Mastercard guidelines approve the above refund options for travel that is cancelled due to COVID-19 related government restrictions.
