“We were hoping to travel to England in 2020, and I bought the ticket through TravelstartNG. As a result of the issue of Covid, we could not go again. I informed them to refund my money,” he said.

Makinde told FIJ that the company assured him several times that the money would be refunded but he got nothing.

“They have been promising me that the money will be sent back to me, but till date I have not seen it,” he said.
