Traveler Information for COVID-19

Change/Cancel Fees General Info Travel Protection Plus


Please visit this site for the latest CheapCaribbean.com Cruises information and policies.

Due to the overwhelming impact of COVID-19, we are experiencing an unprecedented increase in service requests, resulting in long wait times. We are dedicating every resource possible to help our contact center team navigate this rough period. We are truly sorry for this situation and ask that you continue to cooperate with us during this time of need.

You can save time by reviewing the policies and FAQs that apply during this time. Most policies vary from partner to partner; it is extremely important that you review your airline and hotel information, as the situation is changing frequently.

Rebooking with Future Travel Credits*

*To rebook your vacation, please call us at (800) 915-2322. Future Travel Credits and Future Cruise Credits are not interchangeable or transferable between each other.

If you were already issued a Future Travel Credit and are looking to rebook your vacation for a later date, please keep this in mind:

  • Future Travel Credits issued for bookings with an original travel date of 3/1/2020 – 12/31/2020, either online or via one of our agents, have been extended and are now valid through December 15, 2021. Booking and travel must be completed prior to this date.
  • Once you rebook using your travel credit, subsequent changes or cancellations are subject to airline fees at the time of the change/cancel.
  • If you purchased travel insurance, your future travel credit will not include the cost of insurance because it is non-refundable and non-creditable.

Your rebooked vacation does not have to be identical to the original reservation; you can pick a new destination or hotel. However, you may have to keep the same airline provider, depending on your original airline’s policies.

When you are ready to rebook your dream vacation, please call (800) 915-2322. It’s recommended that you have your original booking ID with you as well as your new preferred travel dates and location. This will make the process go a lot faster and will help other True Beach Lovers get the help they need sooner.

Updated Change & Cancellation Fees

We have temporarily revised our policies to make sure that even if your first choice no longer meets your travel needs, you can still enjoy the safe, happy getaway you deserve. 

General Change Fees

Land-Only and Scheduled Air Packages

All CheapCaribbean change fees will be waived until 5/31/20 for travel through 12/31/20. Fees may still apply as outlined below.

Starting 6/1/20, CheapCaribbean change fees will also be waived for travel scheduled for 6/1/20 through 7/31/20, so long as the cancellation occurs before 7/31/20.

  • This applies to all passengers who book with or without Travel Protection Plus.
  • Note: Airline and hotel change fees may apply based on your respective policies and travelers may be required to pay any increase in vacation package cost incurred from that change.

All airline cancellation fees still apply for Exclusive Nonstop Vacation Flight bookings. Exclusive Nonstop Vacation Flight cancellation fees are as follows:

  • Cancellations 45+ days out: $50 per person
  • Cancellations 31-44 days out: $125 per person
  • Cancellations 30 days or less from travel: a 100% penalty applies

  • All airline cancellation fees still apply to Scheduled Air bookings. Scheduled Air cancellation fees vary per airline.
