Canceling Your AirBnB Reservation? Here’s What You Need to Know
Coronavirus cases are popping up all over the world at rapid rates and according to the CDC, we should be limiting travel during this very critical time. It does put a damper on many things, especially for people who have had trips planned for a while, but now are afraid to travel. I get it, and I'm glad I don't have any planned trips coming up. I think a lot of people may lose out on money because of it, which is sad, but some places and even airlines are offering full refunds. Speaking of which, if you booked an AirBnB and are not going because of the coronavirus threat, here's what you need to know about canceling it.
According to Thrillist, AirBnB understands that this is a critical time and have what they call an extenuating circumstances policy. The policy states that you can get a refund when something extreme like the coronavirus takes place. As of now, the policy only applies to bookings in China, South Korea and Italy, but if the COVID-19 virus keeps infecting more and more people, it's bound to be valid in other areas as well. If you have a reservation that is somewhere else other than South Korea, China or Italy, I'd check their website for details to see if you'll get a full refund.
