MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Colorado-based journey firm has agreed to refund greater than $650,000 to a number of hundred Minnesota music college students after COVID-19 scuttled their journey to Europe final spring.
Lawyer Common Keith Ellison introduced Friday that Voyageurs Worldwide agreed to a settlement calling for the corporate to pay $664,835 in refunds to 344 college students, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.
Ellison’s workplace stated the corporate charged between $6,345 and $9,010 for its 2020 “Ambassadors of Music” tour for highschool college students and their mother and father. COVID-19 pressured the corporate to cancel the journey however Ellison stated the corporate refused to subject full refunds and saved $1,900 in cancellation charges from every pupil. Ellison’s workplace launched an investigation after receiving dozens of complaints.
Along with the refunds, the settlement requires Voyageurs Worldwide to precisely talk its refund and cancellation insurance policies to future Minnesota shoppers.
Voyageurs Worldwide attorneys have been unavailable for remark.
Voyageurs has been organizing yearly journey excursions to Europe for high-school music college students and their mother and father since 1970, in line with its web site.
