WEATHER AND TRAVEL DELAYS

WORRY-FREE HURRICANE GUARANTEE

Fortunately, Barbados has a very low risk of hurricanes as the island is located outside of the hurricane belt. Historically, most named Hurricanes were not formed hurricanes, but only tropical depressions passing 60 miles or so from Barbados causing minimal effects.

In the event of official airline delays or cancellations for whatever reason that might result in guest arrival a day or more later than planned, Sea Breeze Beach House will offer guests a voucher for the value of the nights' rate towards an extended or future stay.

In the event of an official severe weather system warning issued for the island of Barbados resulting in closed airports or cancelled flights, Sea Breeze Beach House will waive the cancellation penalty and provide a voucher for the value of the full deposit paid towards a future stay. All vouchers for future stays are valid for 1 year from the original booking date.

Guests are advised to have comprehensive travel insurance in place for such unexpected circumstances.

TOURISM FUND
Please note an optional donation to the Tourism Fund of Barbados will be applied to your account of US$1 per day which allows guests "give back" to the island in a direct and meaningful way. This donation is at the discretion of the guest and can be accepted or declined at check out. For more information on the tourism fund please visit BHTA Tourism Fund.
