How much money have you lost because of the postponed tour?

I don't really dare to look up what all the stuff I can't get repaid has cost me. 

But with flights and hotels at the shows I was to do... I think I'm gonna have to eat roughly $400 dollars.

So that is $400 plus not getting to hear Can't Keep open a show.

How much money have you burnt? Or could you get most of it back?

    None.

    Alaska Air fully refunded the points I used to get tickets to fly to Oakland.    We had booked a refundable hotel which was easily cancelled.

    I never book refundable. 

    Well, I guess I am the only loser in Pearljamville then.

    In the U.S. it seems most flights, hotels, airbnbs made cancellations refundable because of the pandemic.

    Around 70 Euro for 3 train trips and maybe 140 Swiss Francs depending on Swiss Air. All my accommodations were refundable and the other flights were cancelled with a refund option. So not too bad

    None other than the cost of my Baltimore tickets which I will probably either eventually use or easily recoup.

    I never book nonrefundable hotel or cars.
    Air is a different story but no air needed this time around except for Ohana which I hadn't booked yet.

    Out about $250 my polish airbnb and hotel wouldn't do full refunds. Everything stateside was taken care of. Just squatting on tickets. Especially the Europe ones. I hope 10c allows resale or refunds if we cant be present for the 2021 dates so I dont have to eat that $450
  • JOEJOEJOEJOEJOEJOE Posts: 9,566
    None.....just the emotional cost of missing out on 5 shows this year!

    I was shocked at how quickly I got refunded for Diamondbacks tickets...definitely glad I bought directly thru MLB instead of Stubhub

    650$ - Paris hotel - booking.com non-refundable. (They will let me stay next year if I go, however.)
    **CDN - so that's closer to US 500$

    You should check now on Delta. You may need to call, but by May they were automatically giving credits if you didn't take flights.   If you have a Delta Freq Flier, check your account wallet for credit vouchers as they may already be there.  You may need to go to the full on line site as the app sometimes doesn't show the credit vouchers properly.

    What you might also want to look into or at least call and ask is if any of your flights were cancelled, combined with others or delayed more than 2 hours (I think that's the threshold though it may be longer) to also waive the $200 "change" fee.  March flights were dicey on getting the credit, but I was able to go back later in May I think it was and call about flights I had something else and they gave me a full credit.  The only difficulty with that is you will need to call to use the credit vouchers in order to get the fee waiver included at the time you're booking your next flight.

    You will not get a refund, but at least you'll get a credit voucher for flights and I think you now have until the end of 2021 to use them (it's usually 12 months, but they've been periodically extending the time and I think that's the last extension - don't take my exact word for it).  So, if you don't fly again, you will be out the money, but I guess it doesn't hurt to have it in case you do.

    Good luck.
    Sorry. The world doesn't work the way you tell it to.

    I think a couple of weeks after the band postponed the spring tour I made a couple of posts talking about the difficulty that I was having from Airbnb and other companies that I was trying to cancel with. I think that is a bit of a testament to Pearl Jam getting ahead of the rest of the continent and canceling when they did and the travel industry had not caught up yet with what was going on. Since then I have been mostly satisfied for the 8 shows I was going to with refunds as company policies were changing on the fly. I was doing 8 different cities in 5 different countries and as of today I am only out $27 for a cancelation fee from Hotwire since a hotel in Budapest would not grant me a refund. That said I have a huge amount of credits that need to be used with certain companies and if the Euro tour for example does not happen next year or the sequence of the Krakow,Budapest,Zurich shows don't stay together I will be out quiet a bit as I bet a lot of others would be as well.

    I was lucky. My only travel expense was an Amtrak and hotel for Baltimore - both of which were fully refunded. I am holding on to my tickets to Baltimore, MSG, and Sea Hear Now - so my money is still being held for those - but I am hopeful those shows will happen.

    Postponed should have been illegal honestly.  Just a way to hold your cash.  Jet Blue gave 1 year from date of purchase to use the flight I bought but I would say overall, postponed, around $1700 (Pearl Jam MSG under 300).  Shitty for everyone...

    Tickets to MSG and SHN on hold and since I’m local there were no other travel expenses to pay ahead of time. 

    I hope anyone out money gets a refund or a credit... good luck!

    I had a $250 travel credit from Amex and used it to cover a $396 flight from Ft Lauderdale to Toronto and back for the opening show. At some point when I have a chance I will contact Amex travel and have the $396 credited towards a future flight.

    I'm in the same situation for the Toronto show (live local, chose to sit on the tickets), and wish everyone the best in getting funds back into your pockets.
