EU court says tourists may get refunds over Covid measures

Travelers whose package tours were ruined by the imposition of restrictions to combat the Covid virus may be entitled to at least a partial refund, the European Union's highest court said Thursday.



The court listened to the plea of two persons, who had bought a two-week package vacation for the Spanish islands in March 2020, but due to pandemic restriction couldn't avail of it fully. They are now seeking compensation.



When the restrictions were imposed on March 15, beaches were closed, a curfew put in place and the plaintiffs were allowed to leave their hotel room only to eat, the EU court said.



On March 18, they were told to be ready to leave at any moment, and two days after that they had to return to Germany. The tour operator refused the requested cost reduction on the grounds that it couldn't be held liable for a “general life risk.”
