CheapCaribbean.com Announces Hurricane/Blizzard and Travel Insurance Included in Caribbean and Mexico Vacation Packages
Doylestown, PA (PRWEB) October 6, 2005
Customers booking a CheapCaribbean.com vacation package to the Caribbean or Mexico won’t have to worry about hurricanes, tropical storms or winter blizzards affecting their travel. The internet travel company is including comprehensive travel insurance with every hotel and air package booked on its website or at its toll-free telephone reservation center between now and October 31st and valid for all dates of travel through August 31, 2006.
CheapCaribbean.com is a leader in providing affordable vacation packages, including all-inclusive resorts and luxury hotels, to the Caribbean and Mexico. Commenting on the company’s decision, James Hobbs, President and CEO, said “We want our customers to experience worry-free trip planning – they know they’ll receive a full refund if they have to cancel their vacation package trip due to hurricane damage in either their travel destination or hotel, or in their own local area. If their dates are flexible and they can reschedule their vacation when a hurricane, tropical storm or winter blizzard interrupts or delays their travel plans, they won’t incur the penalties or fees imposed by the air carrier or hotel. We waive our own fees in these unfortunate situations, but wanted to take our customer service one step further. Our customers know we take the term ‘customer service’ as seriously as our commitment to offer the most affordable packages to the Caribbean. It’s what sets us apart from our competition.”
CheapCaribbean chose nationally recognized Travel Guard International for its Hurricane and comprehensive Travel Insurance program, valued at $ 49 per person. The Trip Cancellation and Insurance includes:
Full refund for cancelled trips for any covered reason (including inclement weather, illness, etc.)
Coverage of airline or hotel imposed penalties or fees for rescheduling outside of proffered dates
Travel Delay coverage of up to $ 100 a day
Baggage & Personal Effects
Emergency Medical Transportation
Travel Guard Assist, an integral component of the policy, provides non-insurance services to CheapCaribbean customers such as replacement of lost passports; location of dentists, physicians, etc. LiveTravel 24-hour Assistance provides a hotline for emergency changes, tracking lost baggage, and even relaying phone or email messages to family, friends or business associates in emergency situations. This is only a brief description of the coverage(s) available. The policy will contain reductions, limitations, exclusions and termination provisions.
