Refunds from Trailfinders and (amazingly) Expedia that they didn't have to provide

Just before Covid happened, me and my partner were due to go on a once-in-a-lifetime round-the-world-trip with a significant part of our trip being Hawaii and a stay at some nice hotels in LA. At the last minute my partner was denied a travel visa to the USA for absolutely no reason (he is a UK resident but has a Romanian passport, Romanians need visa approval at the embassy). We simply couldn't go. Trailfinders refunded 90% of the part of the trip we booked with them (although they were under NO obligation to do so) and it took a lot of begging but I got a refund from Mondrian Hotel LA completely at their discretion and two other hotels booked via Expedia. I was very very lucky and highly recommend Trailfinders who could have literally kept £10K but refunded me instead.
