Tips on how to re-schedule travel to Japan
If you or members of your family have travel plans to Japan, they may need to be changed. Here are some things you need to know about how to re-schedule your trip.
Many of those planning to travel to Japan will find themselves cut off from airports and transportation. Most will be allowed to rebook at a later time, but there could be a catch.
Travel attorney Al Anolik says those caught now will, in all likelihood, be taken care of. But those planning to travel in the coming weeks may not be given a break.
An airline that has been ordered, 'you cannot fly here' had better not try to put on a fee but that's right now, two weeks from now they may see a fee crop up," he said.
Many of Japan's best known travel companies are owned by huge corporations that tend to make refunds a regular part of business.
