Rules that everyone should know.

What to do with flight cancellations?

Most airlines are trying to help Russian citizens not to suffer losses, given the difficult economic situation. Therefore, the possibility of returning tickets or changing the dates of an upcoming trip was introduced. If your flight is canceled, then the money can be returned either by going to your personal account on the airline's website, or by calling. Most people do this now, as many flights have already been suspended. If the flight was not canceled, then, unfortunately, no one is formally obliged to return your money. Of course, you can put pressure on the company yourself with the help of letters of complaints or calls, but there is no guarantee that this will bring results.

What if I have already bought a ticket?

If your chosen country is currently closed for entry, then the travel agency is obliged to return the money. The easiest way to do this is when placing a tour in online agencies by clicking the Cancel button. In offline agencies, the situation should also not cause difficulties. If the tour operator refuses to return your money, you can write a claim.

What to do with a visa to a closed country?

If you already have a long visa, then don't worry. You can easily open it a little later. If a visa is obtained for a specific trip, then Italy promises to extend its validity for you. But in general, it will most likely burn out. However, believe me, this is the smallest problem for today. It will not be easy for those who were just going to apply for a visa. To date, the US and Europe have stopped issuing them.

Remember the most important thing - any travel during the coronavirus epidemic must be carried out exclusively at your own peril and risk. Of course, it is better to wait out the pandemic at home, protecting your own health. It should be noted that prices for flights within Russia are sharply decreasing now. Sochi, Krasnodar and Crimea are open to tourists. Therefore, if you still want to enjoy your vacation, now is the best way to take the chance.
