COVID-19 Crisis Information
This page will be updated as further information becomes available
Like many industries across the globe, tourism has been greatly impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Borders have closed in many destinations and the countries are taking huge steps to quell the virus’ spread, often without warning.
Many of our customers across Europe, the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand are also seeing their holidays and bookings impacted. We’d like to begin by thanking you all for your patience and understanding during these trying times.
This page will offer frequent updates on the state of the situation.
We have been forced to cancel all bookings to countries with closed borders for all pick-ups up until the 31.07.2020. These are currently awarded free of charge and customers with pick-up dates through to this date are being contacted with information as to their options. If restrictions continue, the cancellation policy is likely to continue at this stage. Those customers impacted have been contacted and provided information as to the timeline on full refunds. This situation remains a priority for bestCAMPER and customers will be informed as soon as more information becomes available. Any customers able to accept a voucher to the same value of their booking for a 24-month period are also greatly appreciated from our end.
