Hungarian railway company MÁV will reimburse the holders of international tickets who decide to forgo their travels in September due to the government’s recent coronavirus-related restrictions.
In a statement on Saturday, MÁV said it is monitoring the situation closely and will take further measures if necessary.
Return tickets valid after September 30, but belonging to a ticket for a September journey, will also be reimbursed, the statement said.
Travellers can post their reimbursement claims by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, at www.mavcsoport.hu/ugyfelszolgalat/uzenetkuldes or at ticket offices, the railway company said.
The Hungarian government announced on Friday that it will close borders to foreigners starting on September 1, re-introducing the border protection measures in force during the first wave of the coronavirus epidemic.
