Flight info

You will fly into the Punta Cana airport in the Dominican Republic. The airport code is PUJ.

 

Given changes in the airline industry and the global pandemic, we encourage you to book your flights directly with the airline. If you want to discuss your flights more or would like us to send you specific flight suggestions, please let me know.

Your reservation includes airport transfers but we cannot book your transfers without your flight details.

Make sure to book your flights for the same days as your hotel reservation. If you plan to extend your stay at a different resort, please let me know so I can book your transfers accordingly.

Here are some tips:

  • Direct flights ensure more seamless and less stressful travel so consider booking a direct flight even if it is a little more expensive.
  • If you do have to book a flight with a layover, please pay close attention to the layover times. Airlines are notorious for allowing short layovers with a very high likelihood of missing the connection. While no one wants to sit around the airport for hours, you also don’t want the headache of missing your layover because of a short connection. I suggest choosing a schedule that has at least 1.5 hours on the way to your destination. On your way home, I suggest at least 2 hours to give extra time to get through immigration.
  • Pick an arriving flight as early in the day as you prefer so that you have more time at your destination.
  • For your returning flight, the ground transportation company will often pick you up three to four hours before your flight time so pick as late a departing flight as your schedule allows
  • Some airlines provide tickets that can be changed or canceled without a fee. This costs more upfront but can be helpful in these uncertain times.

Airport Transfers

Round trip transportation from the airport is included in the package. Once you have cleared customs and collected your bags, please proceed outside to the transfer area. 

 

Your transfers will be shared with anyone in the wedding group who is booked on the same flights as you. 

 

Travel Insurance and cancellation policy

Cancellation Policy

  • The original deposit is non-refundable.
  • Before March 7, 2024: Everything is refundable except the original deposit
  • March 7, 2024-May 1, 2024: 50% non-refundable if canceled (travel insurance would cover this fee)
  • After May 1, 2024: 100% non-refundable if canceled (travel insurance would cover this fee)
  • No show: no refund even with travel insurance

Travel insurance will protect you from these cancellation fees if you need to cancel after your reservation is already in penalty.

Please note! Once the final payment due date has passed, penalties also apply to a reduction in nights, room category, or the number of people in your room.

I know that you may not be able to think of a reason that you would cancel your trip right now. It may be tempting to not include the cancellation insurance. Keep in mind that the cancellation policy above will not be waived for ANY reason unless you have this cancellation travel insurance. This includes if you get COVID or the flu right before the trip and cannot travel. 

Still think you don't need insurance? Here are 14 reasons why you do!  These are all real reasons that wedding guests have had to cancel after the penalty period started. 

If you’re attending a destination wedding, chances are you’re booking several months in advance. While we’re sure you have every intention of making the trip, life can be unpredictable. The months before your travel date could bring a job change, illness, or other circumstances that could prevent you from traveling. Purchasing travel insurance is a smart investment that will protect you from financial loss.  

And because most medical insurance policies do not offer coverage outside the United States, we do not recommend traveling without insurance. Our trip insurance covers trip delay, trip cancellation, some medical coverage, lost luggage, and more. 

How does the Cancellation coverage work? 

  • The travel insurance would cover you with a “cancel for any reason” policy that would give you a refund for any non-refundable portions of your land reservation as long as you cancel at least 2 hours before departure. It does not include coverage for airfare.
  • Price: $150 per adult. $100 per child.
  • The cost of travel insurance is not refundable. 

The insurance also includes the following in-travel coverage. 

 

Fun Things To Do In the DR

We offer a lot of great excursions in this destination! We recommend that you pre-book your excursions. By booking your excursions in advance you won’t have to worry about exchange rates, getting closed out of something that you really want to do, or getting stuck in a timeshare presentation when you thought you were going zip lining! Most of our excursions include transportation.

 

FAQ's
