I donít buy it. Hotel rooms, charter buses, dinners 5 weeks in advance? Youíre telling they pay all those vendors in full for services that will never be provided? Concert festivals at venues that are closed? It will be hard on the travel companies and may even put them under, but itís also hard on the parents, many of whom have been laid off. Why should they have to sacrifice so that a travel company stays afloat? Iím not saying we should get a full refund, but if the company canít meet its obligations under the contract that should not all fall on the customers.
Of this is really up to the trip companies, itís up to the vendors they use. Trip companies canít return money if the vendors donít return it to them. Remember, the trip companies arenít cancelling trips, itís your local administration. All these companies want to help you, but if push comes to shove and they have to yank out the contracts you signed, your district will realize thereís nothing they can do except never let anyone travel again.
