ALERT: COVID-19 / Coronavirus update 5 August 2020

Our customer care team continues to remain focused on travelers with flights in the next 7 days. Please read below first:

  • COVID-19 Testing Policy:  Different regions, countries, and airlines are adopting policies regarding requirements for 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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. Some airlines can take several months approve & issue refunds. We will send periodic updates by email, but we ask you to please be patient.
  • Airline changes and cancelations: Airlines around the globe have been continually updating their flight schedules as the COVID-19 situation evolves. This includes canceling and changing flights, which can impact your travel plans. 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.
  • For other questions about the coronavirus and how it has affected, or may affect, your travel plans, please see our FAQ page.
