CheapCaribbean.com Now Offering "Free Your Mind" Program

A growing number of resorts are now offering hurricane guarantees and now CheapCaribbean.com is offering its own "Free Your Mind" Travel Protection Plan, included in every vacation package it offers. The plan covers hurricanes plus any other reason the travelers need to reschedule.

"If the boss schedules a meeting that cancels a getaway, or a hurricane spotted off the coast of Africa makes the customer nervous, as long as we're notified at least 3 hours before the customer's scheduled U.S. departure flight, they won't incur penalties for one-time booking changes or cancellations not covered by travel insurance," said Jim Hobbs, CheapCaribbean's President. "In addition, those customers receive a credit voucher for their full vacation amount redeemable for a CheapCaribbean Mexico or Caribbean vacation within one year from the date of cancellation."

Travelers with 'hurricane anxiety' hold back on booking Caribbean and Mexico vacation packages for late summer and fall, when some of the best luxury travel bargains are available, often including incentives such as free nights, stay and eat free deals for children, discounted or free spa treatments and golf rounds.

The Caribbean Tourism Organization's Director of Marketing for the Americas, Hugh Riley, stated: "The majority of Caribbean destinations are not affected by bad weather during this time. CheapCaribbean's 'Free Your Mind - Cancel/Change For Any Reason' program is a great step forward for both travelers and Caribbean resorts, erasing the anxiety factor of booking a Caribbean stay during this period."

Under the plan, vacationers enjoy traditional travel insurance coverage plus CheapCaribbean's own Cancel/Change For Any Reason One-Time Waiver protection for packages booked at http://www.cheapcaribbean.com or via its 24- hour call center at 800-915-2322.
