Bermuda Wants You
Hurricane Worry-Free

Recognizing that visitors may become wary about traveling during the peak of the storm season (Aug. 1 - Nov. 1), many Bermuda hotels have joined together to offer Bermuda Hotel Association's Hurricane Guarantee program.

Although Bermuda isn't visited by hurricanes as often as the Caribbean or Florida, the storms do occasionally strike the island, sometimes causing havoc for days. Other times, they carry more water than wind.

The terms of the Hurricane Guarantee program are fairly generous considering everything is outside of the hotels' control.

Here is what the plan offers:

If the Bermuda Weather Service predicts a hurricane-force storm to approach within 200 miles of Bermuda and within 3 days, you may cancel reservations without penalty.

If during your stay Bermuda is directly affected by a hurricane (as determined by the Bermuda Weather Service), the participating hotel will not charge for rooms, food and beverage or other essential services for any period of time that the hotel's normal services are unavailable.

If a participating hotel is unable to continue operations due to damage incurred by a hurricane (as determined by the Bermuda Weather Service), the hotel will invite you to return for a complimentary stay within one year from the reopening

The replacement stay must be taken within one year from the hotel's reopening and will be in an equivalent room category to the original booking.

Other expenses, including airfare and incidentals, are not covered by this guarantee. You should have travel insruance for that.
