The Cayman Islands have designated an island-wide “Hurricane Guarantee” for the season just starting. Many Canadians are concerned when they plan their Caribbean vacation in the hurricane season that their vacation could be adversely affected if their tropical trip turns into a tropical downpour. So The Cayman Islands have come up with this new deal. This summer, the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism is giving travellers peace of mind with a specialty promise that covers cancellations made prior to arrival, and compensation if vacation time is cut short, because of inclement weather. As soon as a hurricane is anticipated, guests are eligible to receive 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.
Additionally, many properties are offering a free replacement stay throughout the summer months, allowing guests to rebook for the same duration as the initially-booked stay, regardless of how many days were affected by a hurricane or storm.
