I’m looking for the 2010 Brides who honeymooned in places subject to Hurricanes between August-September. I’m an August bride who still hasn’t booked a honeymoon yet because I really want to go to the caribbean, yet I keep getting worried about the weather.
Where did you go?
What type of travel insurance did you have?
Did your hotel have a hurricane policy?

I’ll play. I’m not honeymooning at that time but FI and I did go on a vacation to Puerto Rico followed by a week long cruise in September a few years ago. We didn’t buy any special travel insurance and we lucked out with gorgeous weather.

Hurricane season runs from June to November. That’s almost half the year!!
Aruba sits outside the hurricane belt. But that’s not to say that there isn’t the possibility that you could have to go around some bad weather to get there. Some islands tend to get hit more than others. The Bahamas and Caymans are much more hurricane prone that St Lucia, for example.
Travel insurance policies vary wildly. While some will pay you back in cash in full should you need to cancel, others will only offer you a voucher for future travel. I would use a travel consultant who can explain the policy options to you in detail, and will be available to you should something come up, and you’re unable to travel.

We’re going during hurricane season of 2011 and we have full trip insurance coverage to protect ourselves.
