There is a short delay between the time the booking is made when the credit card is charged and when the airline ticket is issued. Some airlines may require instant purchase.

How to Stay Up-to-Date
In the event of an imminent hurricane, Couples Resorts will post regular advisories on the Couples website and social channels to inform guests of the travel dates covered by the Hurricane Policy. If a guest’s travel date is not specified, standard cancellation/no-show penalties will apply. Couples Resorts utilizes the official website of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (www.noaa.gov), to determine projected path and strength probabilities. If a storm has been declared a hurricane and the resorts/destination appear within the "Cone of Influence" on the 3-Day Tracking Map, the following policies and procedures will apply.
In the event of a hurricane, each guest should consult with his/her airline and travel agent that booked the stay or call 0207 749 9285 for more information.
The safety and well-being of all of our guests at Couples Resorts is of the utmost importance. Please be assured that the resort management and staff have the training, resources, and experience to enable our guests to weather any storm.
TRAVEL INSURANCE IS RECOMMENDED
We strongly advocate the purchase of travel insurance in order to minimize any potential financial loss as Couples Resorts is under no legal obligation to offer any form of compensation related to any storm event. The following policies below are offered as a gesture of goodwill and without prejudice. This applies to the hotel portion of the stay only. All airline related questions and policies should be directed to the appropriate carrier.
For arriving guests, penalties will be waived and options are as follows:
These guests will receive a stay credit (hotel only) and can elect and may chose to arrive within 30 days after the storm has passed, should the rate be higher, guests may be asked to pay the difference between original arrival date and new arrival date. In this case, Couples Resorts will make every effort to confirm the dates and original room category. Couples Resorts is not responsible for airline fees.
Alternatively, these guests can receive the same stay credit (hotel only), but may stay for fewer nights and will receive a hotel credit valid for travel October 5 through December 15 of the current year, or July 15 through December 15 of the following year, for the number of nights not used (subject to availability at the resort). Couples Resorts is not responsible for airline fees.
The airline portion for each guest’s package is non-refundable. If a guest is unable to travel, he or she must contact the airline to avoid "no show" penalty. Otherwise, his/her air credit is valid up to one year from the date his/her airline ticket was issued. Most airlines will have fees to rebook – this will be at the guest’s own expense.Hotel portion: Subject to same cancellation rules listed above (See “Payment & Cancellation Policies”).
For guests on property who feel the need to depart early:
Penalties may be waived and guests may receive a stay credit (hotel only) for travel July 15 through December 15 of the current year or July 15 through December 15 of the next year for the number of nights interrupted. This needs to be booked through the same channel as the original reservation. Couples Resorts is not responsible for airline fees.
For guests on property if the resort is damaged and remains closed for an extended period of time:
Guests may elect to stay at one of the other available Couples Resorts locations at the same rate and, if available and comparable room category. Should this option be utilized, no further compensation will be offered. Couples Resorts is not responsible for airline fees.
Alternatively, guests can elect to receive a stay credit (hotel only) and postpone their arrival for more than 30 days after a storm has passed. In this case, Couples Resorts will authorize a full room credit for travel November 5 through December 15 of the current year or July 15 through December 15 of the next year. Couples Resorts will guarantee the original rate (and category, if available) regardless of travel date. Couples Resorts is not responsible for airline fees.
For guests on property who are forced to extend their stay due to storm related flight delays.
Couples Resorts will charge a distressed traveler nightly rate per room per night for each extended night, to be paid upon departure. Couples Resorts is not responsible for airline fees.
Third Party Providers
