With the continuing uncertainty about travel during the restrictions imposed during this Covid-19 pandemic it is advisable that travellers choose their accommodation booking cancellation options carefully.
With the possibility that your travel arrangements may have to be cancelled or postponed it is wise to choose an option which allows for free cancellation without penalty. Many accommodation providers have increased the availability of this option but please ensure that you select the right option for you at the time of booking.
Choosing Booking Cancellation Options
Here is the advice from booking.com:
“For bookings made on or after 6 April 2020, we advise you to consider the risk of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and associated government measures. If you don’t book a flexible rate, you may not be entitled to a refund. Your cancellation request will be handled by the property based on your chosen policy and mandatory consumer law, where applicable. During times of uncertainty, we recommend booking an option with free cancellation. If your plans change, you can cancel free of charge until free cancellation expires.”
