I came down with food poisoning a few days ago and was unable to begin my trip (multiple days driving + trains, boats).
I had to cancel the trip literally on the morning I was supposed to leave and choose a different mode of transport (plane vs driving) because I didn't know when I would feel better again and I have to get back because of visa reasons.
I didn't feel well enough to go to the doctors, but do now - as I'm told I will need a medical certificate.
If I'm well again, is the doctor likely to give me a certificate? If not, what kind of recourse do I have with a claim. All the claims I have seen in the past seem to centre around having 1) Medical certificate before cancelling 2) To use the same mode of transport.
