Travel Protection

Having travel protection is definitely important and I recommend it for everyone. I personally buy it for trips. However, the option to purchase travel insurance is solely up to you.

Depending on the option you select it may cover between 75% – 100% of a trip cancellation and many other things like unexpected medical expenses, baggage and flight delays.

There are 2 different kinds of policies to choose from and since I’m not an insurance agent and therefore cannot answer questions regarding any travel insurance policies I have found that this is the easiest way to compare them. This is the insurance company we personally like and suggest but you are welcome to purchase Travel Protection through any entity that you choose.

Click here for Travel Insurance Options

You will need to answer a few questions about your trip and then you’ll receive policy options and pricing. This link will give you 2 different plan options (Worldwide Trip Protector Plus & Worldwide Trip Protector) as well as optional add-on coverage for other areas of your trip.

The “Worldwide Trip Protector Plus” policy option includes CFAR (Cancel for Any Reason). However, you must purchase the insurance no later than 21 days from the day you make your reservation. FYI, CFAR is not available for New York State residents.

The Worldwide Trip Protector plan, which does not include the CFAR option, can still be purchased after 21 days from the time you booked but it will not cover the Pre-Existing Condition Exclusion Waiver or the Bankruptcy/Default of an airline, cruise line, tour operator or other travel providers. However, you can still cancel for a covered reason and potentially get up to a 100% refund as long as it’s a covered reason.

I strongly suggest that you call and verify what each policy covers if you have any questions. You can reach an insurance agent at 1-800-243-3174.

FYI, not purchasing travel protection could result in the loss of your travel cost and/or require more money to correct the situation. Without the protection, there may be no way to recoup any losses, costs, or expenses incurred and the price of Travel Protection IS NOT included in the price of the room selections and is non-refundable.

Room Reservation FAQ’s 

Where can I find their Wedding Website & bridal registry?
We currently do not have that information. Please reach out to the bride and groom and request it from them, please.

 

Can I use a different credit card to make additional payments?
Yes. All you need to do is fill out the form on this page. As soon as I receive the information I’ll make the payment and email you the receipt.

 

Can my roommate(s) pay for their portion of the room on a separate card or does it have to be all on one card?
Yes, they can pay using a different credit card. However, when you fill out the reservation form it will only allow you to add 1 credit card. If they want to use their own credit card all you need to do is add a note in the “Additional Information” section at the bottom of the reservation form and tell me who will be using another credit card. You can then submit their credit card info to me by filling out the form on this page.

 

Can I make additional payments before the final payment date?
Yes, you can make additional payments at any time. Just send me an email telling me how much you want to pay and if I should use the credit card I have on file for you. If you want to use a different credit card you can send it to me by filling out the form on this page.

 

Can I set up a payment schedule?
Yes. Just email me with how much you want to pay, what credit card to use, and on what dates you want me to make the payments.

 

I filled out the reservation form but I didn’t get an immediate confirmation.
When you fill out the reservation form it does not automatically make your reservation or charge your credit card. The information is sent to me so I can review it first. If I have any questions I will reach out to you for verification. As long as everything looks good I will make the reservation and email you a receipt showing the payment and another email with information about your reservation. FYI, If you fill out the form after business hours (5:00 pm CST) or over the weekend it may be the next day before you receive a confirmation.

 

Can I add someone else to my room after I’ve made my reservation?
Yes, you can always add a person to your room after your reservation has been made as long as it doesn’t go above the room occupancy limit. If you’re waiting to make a reservation because you’re not sure if someone will be with you in the room, I suggest you go ahead and secure your reservation now and then add them later.

 

The other person in my room can’t make it. Can I switch them with someone else?
Yes. Just send me an email with the name of the guest to be removed along with the name (as it appears on their passport) of the new guest, their birthday, and email address. Once I have this information I’ll make the adjustment. If you are just switching guests the $100 cancellation fee is not charged to the person being removed from the reservation.

 

I can’t make it to the wedding and need to cancel my reservation. What do I do now?
First, send me an email (I have to have it in writing) letting me know you need to cancel your reservation. I will then email you a link so you can make the $100 per person cancellation fee payment. Once this has been paid I will request the room cancellation.

If you purchased the travel insurance and have to cancel you will be refunded the amount according to the travel insurance guidelines minus the cost of the insurance, but you are still responsible for the $100 per person cancellation fee.

If you did not purchase the travel insurance you may still be responsible for additional fees above and beyond the $100 per person cancellation fee which could possibly include the full amount of the room reservation.

 

Will everyone in our group have rooms next to each other?
No, not necessarily. This will depend on a few factors like the type of room category each person books and how full the resort is at the time of the event.

 

Can I request a room next to someone else?
When you make your reservation you can send the request to me in the “Additional Information” section at the bottom of the reservation form and I will pass it along to the resort. They will do whatever they can to honor your request but it is not guaranteed.

 

Does the transportation company have a car seat for my baby?
If you need a car seat please let me know so I can request it from the transportation company. It will be approximately $25 – $35 each way and you will have to pay the driver in cash when you arrive.

 

Do I need to take electrical converters?
No. Mexico has the same electrical outlets as we do in the U.S.
