Kythnos Hiking offers more flexible cancellation for coronavirus impact

The worldwide coronavirus outbreak is disrupting holiday plans this spring prompting Kythnos Hiking (www.kythnoshiking.com) to review its cancellation policies and make them more flexible.

The progress of the virus and its elimination will happen in due course, but the timing remains unclear and its intensity will differ around the world and affect when you book your hiking holiday.

Responsible Travel (www.responsibletravel.com), of which we are a member, says a recent survey in the UK found many consumers would book now if they subsequently could change dates at no extra cost and avoid financial loss.

Taking account of this evidence, and our wish to ease booking for guests, we will offer free subsequent changes to your booking and free cancellation up to one month prior to departure.

We believe these changes - to be incorporated on our website in the terms and conditions section - will help guests to make more reasoned bookings based on the development of the virus.

For the moment, Greece is less touched than some other EU countries, though schools are being closed for two weeks, some conferences have been cancelled, and flights stopped to Italy.
