In episode five of TPG Talks, we were joined by our two TPG staff experts who have been covering travel changes since the coronavirus pandemic began. TPG Travel Analyst Zach Griff and TPG Editor-at-Large Zach Honig walked us through the current practices of how airlines, hotels and online travel agencies (OTAs) are approaching travel changes, cancellations and refunds.

If you’re facing issues with changing or canceling an upcoming trip, make sure to watch the replay of this TPG Talks webinar and ensure that changes or cancellations don’t cost you, then join the conversation in the TPG Lounge if you have further questions.
