Refunds from TAP

Hello,

I am trying to get a refund of some €800 from TAP for flights cancelled due to Covid19. They have supplied what they call a 'refund voucher' but this is actually a credit voucher to be used at a later date. My problem is I was travelling to USA for a specific event (which was cancelled), I don't know when I will next use TAP and I want my money back.

Does anyone have a similar experience and have you had any success in getting your money?

Many thanks

Gerry

No, they won't budge and will only offer a credit to be used at a later date. It's a bit misleading because although they call it a refund, they actually mean a credit voucher. 

C'est la vie!
