As i’m sure you know, here in Italy, we are facing a very bad moment due to the collapsing of touristic market for the Coronavirus spreading.
Most of my living incomes, come from the bamboo fly rodsi built and from fishing/cultural guiding activity.
The beginning of this year, seemd to be started in a wonderful way. I have received several messages from people interested to book a trip here in Abruzzo. Several dates had been already booked in April May and September.
Since the spreading of the Covid-19, i have received several cancellation trip from clients (fairly scared by what’s going on right now in Italy).
So messages like these, became the norm in the last few days:
With the higher level of security with the coronavirus and travel issues within, I will be cancelling my trip. I
would request a refund for the trip. I am sure you are well aware of the security measures that the Italy has
in place. This is a very rare circumstance and I am sorry to have to cancel.
I will keep your contact for any future travel as you have been an extremely helpful guitde. I am being forced
to leave the country due to Corona. Sorry for the cancellation,”
I have promtly refunded the clients, with no problems…which is good.
Anyway in order to face the losses coming from the cancellations of the trips, and i presume there will be more cancellations during the entire season, i have decided to make a “Super Sale” on some of the bamboo rods i have built and that i have here at home. So that’s a good news for you 😀
Most of these rods are brand new (which it means they have never been fished), and few of them have been
