    Is it my imagination, or is this getting pretty bad?

    *Spoken in my Captain Obvious voice*

    Here in Houston, and in the surrounding counties, all restaurants, bars and other types of places for people to congregate are being ordered closed (to be enforced by the Fire Marshal's office, actually, which I find legally and bureaucratically interesting), except for take out orders.

    But... the Mayors of Houston and surrounding communities HAVE allowed the drinks to be sold, as well. BOOZE! I thought that was both very interesting, and sort of kind in a twisted way. A few million people, shut up in their homes, getting stir crazy... need to be able to drink, It hink.

    We booked our trip for May 11-20 through cheapcaribbean. 1k deposit and balance due 2 weeks prior.
    My question, to anyone that may know, is if there’s a travel ban and it’s out of our control, would the travel agencies be required to refund or reschedule our trip? After all, we’re not exactly canceling.
    Not sure how to play this.
    Thanks in advance and stay healthy guys.

    I'll just share our situation and it may help you out a bit. We have used Bookit.com for our last 5 trips to TTR and loved them. We were set to leave this Tuesday, but we started hearing that travel bans were on the way and that the government was rolling out other restrictions about a week ago. We waited, but finally called and spoke with a representative Monday and cancelled our trip with a "full refund" do to the situation. We heard on Wednesday that other Bookit travelers were being stranded due to non-payment. And now today, Bookit has declared bankruptcy and everybody that has future trips is out their money. Oh yeah, and we never received our refund. We have used Cheapcaribbean in the past and liked them, but I don't think these online travel agencies can handle the financial stress of the current situation. I also saw that Snaptravel is now having problems. Your best bet is to move your travel in to late summer, when this thing might have slowed down.

    We’re in the same situation. However, since us and our neighbors are all grill masters...we’re just rocking on, eating some great Texas BBQ and drinking our way into numbness...

    I’d be worried about anyone who is a alcoholic and dies from a withdrawal.
