Right now our industry is living through an unprecedented moment and you may be very aware that like every industry the travel sector has been hit even harder by the news of the last few days. Rest assured that we are doing everything possible — including providing extra staff — to support the high number of requests for changes and cancellation of bookings. This is a situation that none of us could ever have imagined or prepared for and understandably we appreciate the significant impact these developments are having on your lives and business.
In the meantime, wherever possible we would like to ask you to hold back on contacting our call centres about bookings that are not for arrival in the next 72 hours. This allows us to prioritise our resources on the more important cases – something that is in everyone’s interest. We value your patronage greatly and would like to thank you for your understanding and support. If you have any questions relating to this, please do not hesitate to contact us. We hope that you and yours are safe.we recommend you check the FCO site to see what precautions you should take.
