Technology Remaining payment for trips in May is usually not due
Former Fugees rapper Pras arrested over child support payments
A judge determined that Pras' "proof" that a payment was made wasn't good enough.On Jan. 31, Pras' ex-girlfriend Angela Severiano said the rapper owed $125,000 in child support for their 9-year-old son, Landon. At the time, Pras didn't deny the accusation in court, admitting he's only paid $2,000. A judge then ordered him to make a $20,000 payment by March 2 and show proof that he did so.
If you wanted to take a package tour in May, you often no longer have to make the last payment for your vacation in April.
It is currently unclear when travel will be possible again, said Torsten Schäfer, spokesman for the German Travel Association (DRV). The travel warning currently applies until the end of April. The Federal Foreign Office has yet to decide whether it will be extended.
The remaining payment for a package tour is usually due a few weeks before the travel date. As a reaction to the uncertainty over time, according to the DRV's knowledge, many tour operators did not request the final payment for travel in May, according to Schäfer. The "Tagesspiegel" (Thursday) had previously reported on this.

The direct payments to many Americans will be means tested based on their income.Under the plan, the details of which were revealed on the Senate floor by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., individuals making up to $75,000 annually would be eligible for a $1,200 check from the federal government.
It is also unclear whether and which countries will allow German holidaymakers to come back in May - regardless of the travel warning. The cruise operator Aida Cruises also canceled all sea cruises until the end of May on Wednesday. Because of the applicable entry regulations in the global destination areas, normalization of travel was not to be expected until then. Due to the corona pandemic, tourism is currently largely at a standstill.
In the case of package tours, holidaymakers generally have to make a down payment after booking, and the outstanding balance is due a few weeks before the start of the holiday.
