I guess that, as the re-arrangement was mutually agreed, they can legally say that they never cancelled the deal. But its not as if we have denied them opening the booking date up to others as they are not taking any more bookings at all. The circumstances are though, to use an over-used phrase, unprecedented so we will wait and see how it pans out.

We have tried to take a pragmatic approach to bookings/refunds/vouchers etc. on the basis that we've already paid and actually lost a holiday/trip and time with friends and family.

If we think the business might survive and we're likely to use them again then a rebooking/voucher is a reasonable way to go.
We've done that for most commitments. And to be honest I can't even recall what I've paid to the hotel in Kelso….
(Edit, just 50 deposit, way less than the petrol we would have consumed getting there and back and over the weekend)

Oddly a hotel we booked in Glasgow (for tonight!) at a cheap prepaid non-changeable non-refundable rate has actually refunded us! We cancelled as soon as we knew we weren't going mainly as a courtesy so they knew we wouldn't be arriving as they're probably running a skeleton staff by now.

Our flight this afternoon to Glasgow was cancelled some time ago by BA and we've asked for a full refund (but not been paid it yet, it's well overdue). The alternative was a voucher only valid for 12 months and the chances of us flying with BA in the next 12 months are realistically probably pretty low now...
2003 D2 FL S8. Irish Green Pearl/Beige. Solar sunroof, auto-dim mirrors, electric rear seat functions, ski hatch retrofit; extended leather. Aftermarket DVB-T, reversing camera and full XCarlink (Bluetooth etc.).
2016 Volvo V40 T5 Cross Country (4WD) with ALL the toys including adaptive cruise etc. etc. Osmium Grey with Blonde/Charcoal leather interior. Polestar performance "optimisation". (A much rarer model than a D2 S8 by the way!)
Finally: gone, but not forgotten.....
1998 D2 PF S8. AgateGrey/Platinum. Every option (I think) except electric rear seats, tiptronic steering wheel, ski hatch, towbar & dimming door mirrors.
e.g. Cruise control, NavPlus/TV, Bose, GSM, Xenons, Solar roof, Parking sensors, Alcantara/leather everywhere of course. (internal dimming mirror added later)
1998 (very early) Ford Focus 1.8 Zetec; ABS/TCS, Heated screen/mirrors, Aircon, Auto-dim mirror, Leather, Trip computer, Cruise control, OEM Ford SatNav with CD changer.
