Yikes! A Hurricane Wants To Ruin My Vacation!

You planned every detail, poured over websites, glossy catalogs, asked for the time off from work and bragged to everyone you know that you were off for a tropical paradise vacation, great! Then as if it knew your very plans, a report of a hurricane comes out of nowhere to potentially put a damper on your long-awaited, and no doubt, much needed vacation!

Now what do you do? The answer partially depends – both on whether or not you booked AVOK Trip Protection and how flexible your schedule is.

Assuming you booked your vacation through your travel agent, the first thing you should do is to call your agent—they should always be your first line of defense and will have the latest updates for you, both on the hurricane and on the status of your vacation. Those that may have booked on our website or by calling our Reservation Center directly, we recommend that you check your flight status and airline policies by using our Travel Info Page. You’ll also find information about how the airline you were flying is re-accommodating passengers in the near future. This Travel Info Page provides similar details for passengers utilizing our charter services (USA3000 Airlines, Frontier Airlines and AirTran Airlines, for example). The information contained in this Travel Info Page is updated frequently, it is a great source of relevant information regarding cancelled flights, status updates regarding the hurricane, etc.

Those passengers who opted to purchase the optional AVOK Trip Protection please take a deep sigh of relief. You may call up to an hour before your flight is/was to leave and cancel your vacation with no penalties! The phone number for those of you who purchased AVOK is 1-866-860-2865. You must call us at least one hour before your scheduled departure, if you receive our voice mail, please leave us a message (voice calls are time & date stamped so please be sure to leave your name and booking number).

Once you figure out when it is convenient to re-book your vacation, Apple Vacations, or your travel agent, will be here to help you plan your new trip (depending on the level of AVOK you purchased, you will either receive vouchers toward your new trip or cash back, both less the initial amount of the AVOK trip protection). It is very important that you call to cancel your booking (again – at least one hour prior to your departure time), even if your plane doesn’t take off as scheduled. If you want to change course and go to a different destination – either at a different time or using your original travel dates – you can do so without incurring any change fees or penalties.

Now, for those of you kicking yourself for not purchasing the AVOK, don’t be too hard on yourselves, there are options, but they are a bit more complicated. If you decide to cancel your vacation you will be charged airline penalties and any applicable Apple Vacations penalties – some portions of your vacation may be non-refundable. So, it’s best to re-book your trip. We are here to assist you and have many other great offers to other tropical destinations – Punta Cana and Jamaica are among some of our most popular. Please understand that in this case there will be change fees and perhaps penalties associated with your change that we will unfortunately be unable to waive. The change fees and possible penalties vary on specific bookings and depending upon what airline you are flying, and you will need to speak to your travel agent or Apple Vacations representative to get the bottom line. Your flexibility and patience in understanding that thousands upon thousands of other travelers are now scrambling to change plans as well, will help get you to that Apple Vacations trip you were so looking forward to!

Hurricane season is always a challenge, but with the proper planning, Apple Vacations can help it be a lot less stressful!

  1. It’s nice that AVOK handles any pre-departure worries…But what happens when clients are in the resort and want to avoid the hurricane by returning home ? There is no charter to reschedule and buying new tickets is $900.00 per ticket. Will AVOK help with that ?
    Thanks for your reply.

  2. Hi David, excellent question! AVOK trip protection helps not just with those who want to cancel ahead of time, but also for those who are on a trip currently and have specific extenuating circumstances leading them to need to interrupt their vacation. In the case of a hurricane, AVOK will cover the out of pocket cost of your alternate tickets to return home early if your hotel booked through Apple is evacuated. For additional information you can always refer to the AVOK link on our website http://www.book.applevacations.com/avok or call Trip Mate directly at 1-866-389-5378, the plan # is F430.

    something else, Nonetheless I am here now and would just like to say thanks for a tremendous
    post and a all round enjoyable blog (I also love the theme/design),

    be back to read more, Please do keep up the superb job.

    Admiring the dedication you put into your blog and detailed information you provide.
    It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same unwanted rehashed material.

    your RSS feeds to my Google account.
    Greetings! I’ve been following your weblog for a while now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Porter Tx! Just wanted to tell you keep up the great work!
    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues? A small number of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?
    I am curious to find out what blog system you have been utilizing? I’m having
    some minor security issues with my latest site and I would like to find something more risk-free.

    Do you have any suggestions?
    Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment
    (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for first-time blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple,
    yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance. I must say you’ve done a great job with this.
    Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Opera.
    Outstanding Blog!
    Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I
    provide credit and sources back to your blog? My website is in the very same area of interest as yours
    and my users would certainly benefit from a lot of the information you present here.
    Please let me know if this alright with you. Thank you!
    Hi would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re working with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different
    browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
    Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a fair
    price? Thanks, I appreciate it!
    Great website you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover
    the same topics discussed here? I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get suggestions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Appreciate it!
    Hey! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I really enjoy reading through your articles. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that deal with the same subjects? Thanks!
    Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation; many of us have created some nice practices and we are looking to trade techniques with other folks, please shoot me an e-mail if interested.
    Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your site.
    You have some really great posts and I think I would be
    a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an e-mail if interested. Thanks!
    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However think of if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could undeniably be one of the best in its niche. Excellent blog!
    Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design. Thanks a lot
    Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m
    having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if
    this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Many thanks
    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created
    myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without
    my agreement. Do you know any ways to help reduce content
    from being ripped off? I’d really appreciate it.
    Have you ever considered publishing an e-book or guest authoring on other sites? I have a blog based on the same topics you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my visitors would enjoy your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    Howdy! Someone in my Myspace group shared this site with us so I came to check it out. I’m definitely enjoying
    the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Superb blog and fantastic style and design.
    Great blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .

    . Any tips? Thanks!
    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve
    been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year
    and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into
    it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
    Does your site have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to send you an email.
    I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.
    It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d definitely donate to this superb blog!
    I suppose for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to fresh updates and will talk about this blog with my Facebook group. Talk soon!
    Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored to death at work so
    I decided to check out your blog on my iphone during lunch
    break. I really like the knowledge you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my mobile .
    . I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, awesome blog!
    Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My site addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!
    Currently it sounds like Expression Engine is the top blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that
    what you’re using on your blog?
    Excellent post but I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this topic? I’d be very thankful if
    you could elaborate a little bit further. Thanks!
    Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you
    knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding
    one? Thanks a lot!
    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment
    is added I get several emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Thanks!

    Good day! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a collection of
    volunteers and starting a new initiative in a community in the same
    niche. Your blog provided us beneficial information to work on.
    You have done a extraordinary job!
    Hey! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
    which blog platform are you using for this
    website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems
    with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
    Howdy! This post could not be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this article to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!
    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?
    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
    Hello, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me
    crazy so any help is very much appreciated.
    This design is steller! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well,
    almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really loved what
    you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

    Too cool!
    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on
    the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often.
    Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
    Exceptional work!
    Hey! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyways, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!

    Hi! Would you mind if I share your blog with my facebook group?
    There’s a lot of people that I think would really appreciate your content. Please let me know. Thank you
    Hey there, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!
    Sweet blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying
    for a while but I never seem to get there! Thanks
    Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.

    Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thank you
    Hi there! Quick question that’s totally off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone.

    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Many thanks!
    I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your blogs really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead
    and bookmark your website to come back in the future.
    All the best
    I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you create
    this website yourself or did you hire someone to do
    it for you? Plz respond as I’m looking to construct my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from. thank you
    Incredible! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a totally different topic but it has pretty much
    the same page layout and design. Wonderful choice
    of colors!
    Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and
    let you know a few of the images aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its
    a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.
    Whats up are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but
    I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you require any coding expertise to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!
    Hey this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting
    a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with
    experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no back up.

    Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

    Good day! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be ok. I’m undoubtedly enjoying
    your blog and look forward to new posts.
    Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?

    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any suggestions?
    Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins
    to assist with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains.
    If you know of any please share. Many thanks!
    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
    Hmm is anyone else having problems with the pictures on this blog loading?

    I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
    I’m not sure exactly why but this web site is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end? I’ll
    check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
    Howdy! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new apple iphone! Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and look forward to all your posts! Carry on the superb work!
    Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyway, just wanted to say wonderful blog!

  4. Hey! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a group of volunteers and
