NewsBytes : For 24th March 2020

BULLETIN issued to all members on March 15, 2020

Dear HomeLink Canada Members,

At the moment many of you may be concerned about the Coronavirus and the impact that may have on your HomeLinking travel plans and those of your exchange partner. HomeLink therefore suggests the following:

  1. that you first consider your own personal situation e.g. age, medical condition, the virus situation in the destination/country where you have arranged an exchange, and any special travel restrictions affecting you, etc.,
  2. discuss these considerations with your exchange partner and try to reach an arrangement as to how best to deal with the exchange, keeping in mind all local advice from the Health Authority and the Government.

Given this unprecedented occurrence, be assured that whatever agreement you reach with your exchange partner, there will be no negative consequences in relation to your status or membership with HomeLink.

Membership RENEWAL advisory issued to all current HomeLink members within 7 and 30 days of their membership term expiration.

Your current HomeLink membership will expire in 7 (or 30) days. Renew before your membership expiry date and benefit from our special renewal offers! Learn more by  clicking on RENEW.

We understand you might be unsure about your travel plans as the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation evolves.  However, if you have arranged an exchange and are due to travel within the next month or two, please do keep in contact with your exchange partner and if necessary and if at all possible, agree on the alteration of your dates.

Renewals

Please note that our Renewal reminder emails are sent to members automatically prior to the expiry date of your membership, so we hope you are not offended at receiving them at this time.  They are sent to ensure that you are aware of the reduced renewal rate available to our valued members and to give you the option to renew.

Extra Time required?

Should you have to cancel your exchange due to the current travel restrictions, please do contact us if you need extra free time added to your HomeLink membership. If members have up-to-date travel insurance you may qualify for a refund for expenses incurred, so do contact your insurer, your credit cardprovider, or airline for more information.

Questions?

If you have any questions relating to your exchanges please do contact us at members@homelink.ca or telephone us at 604-987-3262 and we will do our best to assist.  Meanwhile, please follow the guidelines issued by the Federal Government regarding CoronaVirus , Health and Travel updates , Travel advisory and the World Health Organisation WHO .

Above all, do look after your own health and wellbeing and stay safe.

Best wishes,

Jack and Leanne Graber
