Book with Peace of Mind
This valuable program safeguards your purchase of hotel/condo/home rental stays at participating accommodations* during the entire Atlantic hurricane season – June 1, 2013 to November 30, 2013. The Risk-Free Vacation Guarantee program provides the following types of protection:
Traveling by Air - Guests holding confirmed reservations with a nonrefundable deposit at an accommodation in Charlotte County, and who are unable to travel due to closures of Charlotte County Airport, Southwest Florida International Airport, St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport, Sarasota Bradenton International Airport and Tampa International Airport caused by a Category One or higher hurricane as determined by the U.S. National Weather Service, can rebook their accommodation reservations without penalty. A one-category room upgrade may also be provided based on availability.
Traveling by Automobile - If a hurricane watch is issued for Charlotte County by the U.S. National Weather Service 36 hours or less prior to check-in, guests holding confirmed reservations with a nonrefundable deposit can rebook their accommodation reservations without penalty. A one-category room upgrade may also be provided based on availability.
In the unlikely event that a hurricane watch interrupts guest and hospitality operations for more than 24 hours and/or an evacuation order is issued, guests already on property will receive a certificate valid for a free future stay. Certificates will be valid for the same duration as the original stay and must be redeemed within one calendar year from the date of issuance at the same accommodation where the original stay occurred. Free future stays will be awarded subject to availability and certain blackout dates apply.
The Risk-Free Vacation Guarantee program excludes group bookings and may vary slightly depending on each accommodation's terms and conditions. It is subject to change at any time. The certificate and offer is honored and redeemed by the participating accommodation, not the Charlotte Harbor Visitor & Convention Bureau, and is valid for one year and does not include airfare.
