Grand Circle Travel / they are not cancelling trips to Mexico even with the swine flu

1 Boston, United States Review updated:

In brief, we (had) a trip planned to Mexico (in 34 days)with Grand Circle Travel, and am surpized to learn that even with all the warnings against travel to Mexico (because of swine flu) they are still preparing to go. I have talked to them and they don't feel the risk is great enough to warrant canceling travel. They must know something more than the CDC, WHO, Homeland Security, State Department and President Obama; they are all asking that non-essential travel to Mexico cease. At this time, there is a 65% penalty against our fee, and in a few days, will lose it all. Unfair. Irresponsible. Unethical. Take your pick.

    The same thing for us. They said their local guides say it is safe and they will not refund or even issue a voucher for future travel. Basically, you lose all of you money if you want to cancel (no insurance).

    So even with the latest news that Mexico is telling it own citizens to stay home, the travel warnings from CDC and the World Health Organization pandemic alert level at Phase 5, Grand Circle says the trip is on and you can either go or lose your money. I agree that they are being unfair and irresponsible.
