LEGAL NEWS WITH RESPECT TO THE SPREAD OF CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) - REFUNDS


12 Aug

TRAVEL REFUNDS

A class action lawsuit against travel insurance company Assicurazioni Generali Group accuses the company of denying the plaintiff’s trip refund after her trip was canceled due to COVID-19.

The plaintiff says her policy specified that cancellations due to natural disasters would be covered and promised coverage in the event a policy holder couldn’t make their trip due to “being hijacked or quarantined.”

She claims the policy describes “quarantine” as “enforced isolation … for the purpose of preventing the spread of illness, disease, or pests.”


DISNEY PASS REFUNDS

A group of Disney annual pass holders say they were wrongly charged for months during which the company’s theme parks were closed.

The five Florida residents say that while they were not charged during the months the park was closed due to COVID-19, they were retroactively charged when the parks reopened.

Their claim is that they were financially injured because they were charged for a service that was inaccessible due to the pandemic.


FRONTIER AIRLINES

A woman has filed a class action lawsuit against Frontier Airlines, saying she and other passengers should be receive refunds for trips canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The plaintiff claims that when she asked for a refund, Frontier only offered her a flight credit that expired in 90 days; however, she argues the vouchers are virtually worthless because the pandemic has prevented many people from making concrete travel plans for the foreseeable future.

She says given the financial strain many consumers are facing due to the pandemic, the airline’s refusal to issue refunds for canceled flights “is yet another hardship that the public should not have to endure.”
