Coronavirus: senior couple get Italy tour refund after Global News report

A Paris, Ont., man is relieved after a Global News story resulted in a sizable refund for travel he couldn’t take because of the coronavirus epidemic.

Larry Smith’s travel provider had a change of heart and agreed to a refund and credit for $10,000 for a planned trip to Italy this month.

Smith contacted Global News after Senior Discovery Tours of Toronto refused to pay back any of the money he spent on a two-week trip to Italy with his partner.

At the time, the Canadian government recommended against unnecessary travel to northern Italy but the warning did not apply to the rest of the country. Smith and his partner were travelling to Rome and Sicily.
