The Elliott Show: my scamminess, force majeure and Acts of God


In this week’s episode of The Christopher Elliott Show, I dissect my own scamminess, talk about force majeure events and Acts of God and travel.

What a fun discussion! Thanks for joining in.

By the way, there’s still time to answer this week’s question! We’re heading into that time of the year when thunderstorms and hurricanes throw a wrench in our travel plans. But has an airline, hotel, car rental company or cruise line ever invoked the weather or some other natural disaster in a way that didn’t make sense, or seemed inappropriate?

I’m writing a story about the right way, and the wrong way, to invoke the ol’ force majeure clause. What do you think?
