IMPORTANT INFORMATION

 

Our office is closed for calls / emails at present.

All staff are concentrating on repatriating our passengers who are abroad.

Just to repeat “We are only dealing with clients who are currently abroad and trying to get home at this time or due to travel in the next 7 days”. Thank you for your understanding.

Please be understanding with our staff who are working under extreme pressure at this time in order to assist our clients travelling before the end of March.

However, it is likely that most flights will be cancelled from late March for a number of weeks.

 

REFUNDS

All refunds will be processed according to the rules and conditions applied by the end suppliers i.e. Airlines and Hotels / Apartments etc.

The Supplier Rules and Conditions for Covid-19 cancellations vary considerably, and are changing on a daily basis. Some suppliers are offering refunds, and others a credit note.

Some suppliers are applying normal cancellation fees unless the DFA advises against all non-essential travel to the destination on the dates you are due to depart.

For the current DFA advise, please go to https://www.dfa.ie/travel/travel-advice/

We are sure you will understand that currently we are giving priority to clients abroad trying to get home, or clients due to travel within the next 7 days.

We are also processing refunds where permitted by the end suppliers. As you may be aware, all travel companies are experiencing an extraordinarily high volume of refund requests, and there be delays in the system as a result. We are currently estimating an average turnaround time for refunds of 12 weeks. Once a refund or credit note has been received, we will forward to you immediately.

Q: I have not yet left Ireland. Will my flights be cancelled? Should I change my dates?

A: As soon as we are aware if your flight has been cancelled we will actively contact all clients that are affected.

We do not know which airlines will cancel flights outright, and which will cancel only some flights as this is continuously changing by the hour.

Most airlines,  with a few exceptions, are allowing free changes for travel at a later date.

At the moment we have only definitive information up until Mid- April with most airlines.

We thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.

 

Q: Ryanair have stopped all flights from 24th March – when will these operate again

A: We do not know when Ryanair will start to operate flights again, and can only deal with the flights that have been affected so far for our clients.

If you have been affected by a Ryanair flight we will be in touch with you – and as above, this will be in Priority of Date Of Travel Order.

 

Q: What if my flight is still operating but I don’t want to travel – will I get a refund?
A:Most airlines are offering free changes on flights, and you pay the difference in fares and taxes if applicable but do not pay the change fees.

As each airline is different, we only know for certain once we look at bookings on a case by case basis.

We will prioritise these requests based on your date of travel, with utmost priority given to people affected within the next 72 hours.
