Agreed. Whilst I MIGHT get lucky and pick a hotel with a good attitude and flexible interpretation of their own T&Cs, there's no way I'm going to assume that.
We also remember one of the officials proudly announcing "no refunds" when they cancelled the first batch of Chinese tourists. Such obnoxious practices reduce trust.
I'm only going to proceed if my financial losses are capped at a reasonable level. At the moment, this test is not satisfied.
I note some ASQ hotels are discounting prices from their original levels, but in my view, the prices are not that bad, if we account for the room, 3 meals a day, 2 COVID tests and a private transfer from the airport. So demand cannot be that high.
What they need to do to get my business is offer reasonable terms for re-scheduling up to and including the proposed date of arrival.
