ALERT: COVID-19 / Coronavirus update September 2, 2020

COVID-19 Testing & PPE Policy
Different regions, countries, and airlines are adopting policies regarding PPE and testing upon entry. Please be sure to check the latest policy for any country you will visit or transit to ensure you have the correct tests and paperwork before travel. You can check your airline's website, as well as the International Airline Transport Association's global list.

Airline changes and cancelations
If you have been notified that your flight has a change, you may want to first check your airline's website to see their specific policies, and then call us for more information about your specific flight. If your flight is more than 2 weeks away, you may prefer to email in order to avoid phone waits.

Refund eligibility
If the airline cancelled your flight, they may be offering refunds. Please email us with your full name, StudentUniverse reservation code and a brief explanation of the situation and allow us 2-3 weeks to get back to you due to the volume of requests. Please note, your ticket may still be subject to StudentUniverse cancellation fees as per the penalties listed under the rules of your ticket.

Refund status
Airline systems are currently extremely backlogged. If you're eligible for a refund, it can take 4-6 weeks or longer for the airline to approve and an additional several weeks to issue. We will send periodic updates by email, but we ask you to please be patient.

To change or cancel your upcoming flight
Please read the FAQs, then contact us. StudentUniverse is bound to each airline's policy. You can check your airline's policy first on their website so you have an idea of what you might be eligible for.
