Mitch and Jeremy McGovern’s mum issues warning to travellers
The mother of AFL stars Jeremy and Mitch McGovern has issued a warning to travellers after losing hundreds of dollars due to COVID-19 lockdowns.
Michelle McGovern had booked to visit her son Mitch in Melbourne this weekend, before the state was plunged into lockdown.
“They have had a new baby girl, so we were going to go and meet our new granddaughter, and of course with COVID everything got cancelled,” she told Millsy.
“Our flights have been cancelled, we got refunded for that.
“But when I contacted the Airbnb, because it was within less than five days, I got told I would lose 50 per cent plus a cleaning fee.”
She said she is disappointed Airbnb has made money out of uncontrollable circumstances.
“We were prepared to lose one or two days accommodation, but we were going for two weeks, so that is quite a lot of money we don’t have, and a cleaning fee on top when we haven’t even been there.”
