Romantic Hotel Chain Offers Refunds to Guests Who Get Divorced
The fallout of a divorce can be excruciating. On top of the heartbreak that comes with a long-term relationship ending and the daunting task of starting a new life on one's own, there is the economic loss.
One Swedish hotel chain wants to offer at least a small pittance for couples who divorce within a year of staying at their hotels: They’re promising to refund the money for their stay.
“We have welcomed couples to our hotels and mansions around Sweden and seen how beneficial it can be to get away for a while and devote time to each other,” Countryside Hotels' marketing officer Anna Madsen told The Local.
If this alone time doesn’t work and the couple divorces within a year of their stay, Countryside will reimburse the cost of a two-night stay. Couples must reference the offer upon making their reservation and provide the hotel with court documents in the case of a divorce, the BBC reported.
“We have also desired to spread this information to more people and decided to take a radical approach and hope it will make more people understand how important it is to invest in your relationship in time,” Madsen said.
