Don’t let the rain spoil your holidays!
To be eligible, the vacation package chosen must display the Sun Protection logo during the booking process. If so, you are automatically protected. Should it rain during your vacation, you must file a request within 5 days (120 hours) following your return date.
The table below shows the compensation percentage applicable depending on the duration of your vacation package and the number of rainy days, if your vacation package is eligible, and as long as it fulfills all the conditions and the request is filed by the imposed deadline.
Note that for Sun Protection, one day of rain = 5 consecutive hours of rain between 6am and 6pm at the destination as reported by the site Weather.com and its subsidiary Wunderground.com. The following are considered as rain: T-Storm, Rain, Thunder, Shower, Drizzle, Thunderstorm.
|Total length of your trip||7 days||8 days||9 days||10 days||11 days||12 days||13 days||14 days|
|If you have 1 or 2 days of rain|
|3 rainy days||50%|
|4 rainy days||60%||50%|
|5 rainy days||70%||55%||50%||50%|
|6 rainy days||80%||60%||60%||60%||50%||50%|
|7 rainy days||100%||75%||70%||70%||60%||55%||50%||50%|
|8 rainy days||100%||80%||80%||70%||60%||55%||55%|
|9 rainy days||100%||90%||80%||70%||60%||60%|
|10 rainy days||100%||90%||80%||70%||70%|
|11 rainy days||100%||90%||80%||80%|
|12 rainy days||100%||90%||85%|
|13 rainy days||100%||90%|
|14 rainy days||100%|
The compensation you will receive will be in the form of credit to be applied to future travel. The amount of this credit will be calculated using the value of the vacation package purchased, minus any applicable taxes and fees, multiplied by the applicable compensation percentage (according to the table above). Example:
Booking for 2 people lasting 7 days, during which there were 4 days of rain.
|Price per adult||$724.27||$1,448.54|
|Taxes and fees per adult||$370.00||$1,110.00|
With 4 days of rain during a 7-day vacation package, the compensation percentage will be 60%. To calculate the amount of the compensation, you need to multiply the price per adult by the number of passengers (two) and multiply the result by 60%.
$724.27 x 2 adults = $1,448.54 x 60% = $869.12
In this example, credit for the amount of $869.12 will be given.
