Despite the unpredictable hurricane season, a Caribbean escape is still within reach in the Cayman Islands thanks to the destination’s “Worry Free Hurricane Guarantee.” 

This summer, the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism is giving travelers peace of mind with a special 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.

“Our top priority at the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism is to provide a positive and memorable vacation experience for our guests, one that is unburdened by the stresses of everyday life,” said Rosa Harris, director of tourism, in a written release. “Understanding the seasonal considerations that come with the late summer and early fall months, we developed our island-wide Worry Free Hurricane Guarantee. This guarantee allows travelers to plan their stays in the Cayman Islands with complete peace of mind, ensuring they are covered even in the unlikely event that their trip is cut short due to inclement weather.”

A wide array of hotels, condominiums and villas across Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman are participating in the Worry Free Hurricane Guarantee and some are also offering cancellation up to 24 hours or less before the guests’ reserved stay, with zero penalty.
