Happily ignoring pontificators & know-it-alls
Anyone planning to come to Ottawa for Skate Canada International will be most welcome Ottawa is a nice city and you might want to stay an extra day or two!
I got 50% back only after I pleaded with the host. I went through the Resolution Center on AirBnB's website to request the money from her. I pointed out that I'd missed the 50% refund date by only 24 hours and it was only because the Canadian government didn't make an announcement until it was too late.Anyone get 100% of Airbnb back?
Not sure to be honest - I didn't even contact the host directly. There was a ******** button on the airbnb & I went to that page, and then clicked on the cancel link on that page and then it was smooth sailing from there.Did your host have a very flexible cancellation policy?
Thank you for posting that. I’ve contacted my hosts since I already did the cancellation. They better give me the additional refund and not penalize me for being prompt with my cancellation.Not sure to be honest - I didn't even contact the host directly.

My family rented a big house in a Philly suburb before March 1 for Passover in April, and Airbnb refunded the full amount yesterday.The events schedule will be the same, just a bit of time differences. Kelowna, Laval, Regina were all set up the same. They started between 11 and 1, sp's on Friday, lp's on Sat. So go in the night before and you're good.
Nope, and it's not looking good. The one thing I've learned from this, is I might still use airbnb's, but I certainly will be looking to see if they've changed their cancellation policy and book no further in advance than a week or two. They'd be wise to change their policies for some situations.
I converted my Canadian money on Thursday and promised myself I could take that big bouncing $130 and spend it on whatever I want for my Kindle. I can indulge myself in a lot of $2.99 books to get me through my selfless self-quarantine.A few more things that you might not think to do...
- Downgrade your phone plan if you upgraded just for Canadian coverage
- Cancel any autotranslator apps if you got them just for Worlds
- Stash your CAD where you will remember. Convert them when it’s convenient
Yes, originally I paid $1250 and change and my refund was for $1200 and change. I had a $5 fee for mailed tickets and I figure the rest was currency and a transaction fee. I’m satisfied.Was everyone else's refund amount slightly less than what they paid? I'm assuming it's either a processing fee or currency conversion difference.
Yes, I lost around 180 CHF due to currency conversion for 2 all event tickets. Evenko returned the whole amount in CAD, it‘s my greedy bank unfavourable rates and transaction fees that led to this, as well as CHF always being seen as a strong currency vs others in such situationsWas everyone else's refund amount slightly less than what they paid?

I got my refund - and lost $66US on the $1600Can ticket. I was happy. And seeing the exchange rate - phew!!CAD starting de-valuing against USD around March 9th or so. Thankfully, I got the nosebleed day tickets anyway and in February. It's a good thing they paid out by March 14th or before because it's getting ugly now. People who got expensive all event tickets could actually lose hundreds of $ if they didn't get their refund by now.
