Major travel agents operating Thailand package tours met today (25 March), and reached a consensus that they will ask on 26 March all travellers who have signed up for package tours which depart for Bangkok during 27-31 March, whether they intend to depart as scheduled. If the travellers decide to depart as scheduled, the travel agents will make necessary arrangements, and if they decide not to depart as scheduled, they may choose either:
|(1)||to be refunded all the money paid (which includes tour fares, Airport Passenger Departure Tax, etc but excludes visa charges) after the deduction of a service fee not more than HK$150; |
|(2)||to retain all the tour fares paid for six months without needing to pay any service fee.|
The travellers must make a decision on 26 March so that their travel agents can make the necessary arrangements.
As for those travellers who have signed up for package tours which depart for Bangkok on 1 April or during the Easter holiday period, the arrangements regarding them will be announced on 29 March.
