Worried about potential storms in the Caribbean this summer? The Cayman Islands has you covered.
The destination has announced a “Worry Free Hurricane Guarantee,” a promise made by on-island partners to cover any cancellations made prior to arrival should a hurricane hit the islands — and compensation if your vacation is cut short due to inclement weather.
The Worry Free Guarantee includes a full refund of accommodation fees at participating hotels, condos and villas island-wide, with a maximum one-night penalty at most for cancellations made up to 48 hours prior to check-in as soon as a hurricane watch is issued by authorities.
Even better? Many resorts in the Cayman Islands offer a free replacement stay throughout the summer months, letting guests rebook their trips for the same duration as the originally booked stay.
“In the Cayman Islands, we strive to not only provide unforgettable and relaxing vacations, but most importantly through this generous programme, we offer our guests a seamless solution for when travel disruptions occur,” said Rosa Harris, Director of Tourism for the Cayman Islands. “It’s Caymankind to give peace of mind, and with our Hurricane Guarantee, I am pleased we can provide travellers relief knowing they can plan a vacation to our beautiful islands despite seasonal considerations and inclement weather.”
