WISCONSIN — Getting money back for canceled travel has become a big issue for a lot of consumers. If you had to cancel your travel plans due to the coronavirus, getting your money back could be difficult. But, there are a few things that you can do avoid losing out.

If the airline, hotel or booking company canceled your reservation, you are due a refund. However, getting a refund may be significantly delayed due to the extreme number of cancellations.

If you paid with a credit card, you may want to contact your card issuer to contest the charge. This could speed up the process and help you to avoid some hassles.

If you canceled the trip, you may not be able to get the refund you expected. However, many hotels, airlines, and booking companies are trying to work with consumers to offer vouchers or credit for a future stay. Some may also offer a partial refund.
