Guarantee in Caymans

This item appears on page 75 of the March 2012 issue.

On the Caribbean islands of Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac, 25 accommodations (hotels, condos, house rentals) and seven activity companies, including Cayman Luxury Charters and Indigo Divers, are offering a “Worry Free Hurricane Guarantee” for the hurricane season, June 1-Nov. 30.

Guests may cancel reservations with as little as 48 hours’ notice with no penalty or, at most, one night’s rental cost, as opposed to the 100% penalty for late cancellations charged the rest of the year. In addition, guests are compensated for vacations cut short by storms and may rebook their vacations at no additional fee.
