rising COVID-19 rates in countries
Hello Fellow Partners and Booking .com
At the moment some countries are experiencing large 2nd wave outbreaks.
We are not allowed to cancel bookings from these countries.
Me and my staff would prefer not to contract the virus and stay open to countries with low rates of the virus
At the moment Booking.com does not permit us to cancel bookings from these countries, and we have to re-locate guests at another property, at our expense.
In my opinion this is UNFAIR and UNSAFE practice and we are only passing on a dangerous problem, at a cost to Partners, the people in the hospitality front line, most exposed.
The only other alternative according to them is to "close", but why not stay open to the safer countries especially our own domestic market.
We all need to email our concerns to Booking.com, and hold responsible for not keeping Partners and their pesonnel lives and livelyhoods safe.
I do not think they realise the media bombshell they are creating if this creates break outs in the Partner Accommodations.
