Worry-free Hurricane Travel

Holiday Inn provides vacation protection for clients

By: Michael Lowe

Holiday Inn Sunspree Resort Aruba and Holiday Inn Sunspree Resort Montego Bay are giving travelers to Jamaica and Aruba less to worry about. For the third straight year, the Holiday Inn Sunspree Resorts are offering a “Risk-Free Sunspree” hurricane guarantee program for traveling between June 1 and November 30.

This worry-free program will give travelers two types of protection: pre-vacation, in the event of a hurricane before take off, and mid-vacation, in the event of a hurricane once at the hotel.

Pre-Vacation Protection allows travelers to rebook flights without penalty into Sangster International Airport at Montego Bay and Reina Beatrix International Airport in Aruba airports in case of closures caused by a Category One or higher hurricane. In addition, Holiday Inn will include a one-category room upgrade at the resort upon arrival based on space availability.

In the event that a Category One or higher hurricane disrupts hotel operations for more than 24 hours, Mid-Vacation Protection ensures that guests receive a certificate valid for a free future stay for the same duration as the original stay redeemable up to one year. Future stays will be awarded subject to space availability and certain blackout dates apply.

Although necessary precautions are always a must, blue skies and sunny days in the Caribbean mean enjoying nearly 1,200 guestrooms and suites where children under twelve eat and stay free. Adults can hit the clubs at on-property nightclubs or try their hand at the casino tables.

For seniors 60 and over, the resorts’ GoldenSpree program offers exclusive privileges and amenities including dance, cocktail and cooking classes, along with 10-20 percent discounts on dining and more.
