canadians travelling to holguin this month with sunwing!!!!!

Hey all.

We just got Sunwing to change our oct.11th trip to holguin to a five star in punta cana. We didn't have trip insurance and our travel agent we just had to sit and wait. Contacted sunwing directly and they let us purchase trip insurance retroactively at $49.oo p/person and then cancel our Holguin trip, giving us a credit. We used that to book a trip at another resort of our choosing. They were very accomodating even though our travel agent wasn't even willing to try to work anything out until the final word was in on how badly damaged the resorts in cuba were. We did not want to go to a resort under construction after the hurricane and did not feel right about being served by people who had just lost their homes.

Anyway, if you want to make a change don't be bullied by your travel agent. Beat the rush and book where you want because Sunwing is willing (so far) to deal with you.

the only problem is, you are still travelling during hurricane season, and there is no guarantee you won't get affected again in 3 weeks time.

we;re scheduled to go to Cayo Santa Maria on the 4th of October, but I am considering calling Air Transat to find out what's going on.

Thanks for writing with your tip.

I definilty will never consider going south again this time of the year, it's too nerve wracking when you've booked.

good point...but if your destination gets hit, just buy the insurance and change it again...there's tonnes of great places. One has got to be missed..... I hope.
