** Please note that Sandals requires guests who are not staying at a Sandals resort to purchase a pass to attend the wedding**

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance can be added to your package at the cost of the $114.00 per person anytime before final payment.  Insurance is highly recommended as travel suppliers, airlines and resorts often charge fees for trip change/cancellation after the deposit payment has been made. Dreams and Destinations Travel Agency is not responsible for penalties or fees should you change or cancel your trip and highly recommends purchasing the insurance. A pamphlet outlining the policy coverage can be provided.  Please contact Melinda if you’d like to request a copy.

The cost of insurance is nonrefundable and insurance policies are non-transferable. In many cases the cost of insurance is less than the cost of penalties for cancellation.
