The disruption of flights in Europe is having a very significant impact on the tourism industry throughout the world.
Even here in Cape Town we are feeling the impact. At Abbey Manor we have had eight rooms cancelled as travellers are unable to reach us. We have a number of travellers still stuck here, unable to get seats.
It seems that travel insurance will not cover the cost of this, as it is regarded as an Act of God. So we have decided that we will not enforce any of our cancellation conditions, and have returned deposits to all concerned.
Below is a cartoon by Zapiro, which made us smile.
