Covid 19 Update April 10
We wish you all a safe long weekend and for those who celebrate Easter we wish you a Happy Easter! Normally this weekend many of us would be gathering as families but we know that this year that is not safe so please follow your countries advice. The sooner the world is better the sooner we can all ride together again!
Yesterday evening in France we were expecting an update by President Macron with respect to the deadline of our confinement initially scheduled to end of the 15th of April. The announcement however has been postponed and the President will now speak on Monday.
We are aware that the France Health Minister has recommend a further confinement and this is what the President will address Monday. We understand that perhaps in areas without new cases that some of the measures in place will be lifted but that is yet to be confirmed.
This week France added a new law for the tourism industry whereby hotels at this time are not obligated to refund us for cancellations due to Covid travel restrictions but instead offer a 18 month credit. As a result we in turn have amended our current refund policy.
As many of you are aware we have not asked for further payment on any of our tours where monies is currently due, we will continue in this vein. Our current terms reflect a non refundable deposit for anyone who cancels for any reason but we have chosen to mirror the industry in France and offer the same credit to those currently registered for a holiday with us this summer. We hope these terms will suit most of you, however should you prefer not to receive a credit we are happy to offer you a letter to claim against your travel insurance.
If there are any material changes on Monday we will advise you accordingly.
Happy pedalling whether you are inside or out from all of us at FCH.
