Hello Blind team
By mistake I ended up booking a non refundable hotel worth 3000usd on booking.Com for Paris. It was solely meant for visa application purposes so I m not actually planning to visit on those days. Is there anyway I can still get refund? The reservation is one month apart from now but still Hyatt hotel and booking.com is not very keen to help. I purchased this with amex platinum card which do not offer any travel insurance. Is there any way I can buy a third party insurance now and claim it on some medical ground last minute?
Yes you can buy third party insurance within even a week before flying. Claim medical ground. Just visit a doctor with twisted ankle few days prior with unable to fly.
I know my comment will get backlash. But we are being cheated everyday by ins. companies all the time. In a bigger picture it all evens out.
Next time buy free cancellation booking. If you can afford 3000USd nonrefund..you can afford few hundred more
