About Stacie & Devon

 

It was the start of a new year, and optimism was in short supply in the online dating arena. Ready to give up on the many dating apps, Stacie decided to give it one more shot, and with that, it was a swipe at first sight! Devon and Stacie met on Tinder's dating app on January 2, 2019. They exchanged numbers, and minutes turned into hours as they talked, laughed, and began the start of a budding romance. Despite the automatic attraction, Stacie and Devon knew that night that their meeting was never by chance but rather driven by destiny and divine intervention. What are the odds that they would live in the same small town of Greenville, NC, at the same time, share mutual acquaintances, and never meet, then suddenly find each other in a different state and different town years later.

The natural connection and chemistry continued as Devon and Stacie met for dinner and drinks on their first date. They bonded over their mutual love of music and learning, among other things, and their bond has grown stronger since.

When life handed them lemons in the form of sickness, loss, and uncertainty, they decided to bring sugar to the table, and life has been sweeter ever since. After their skydiving experiences took their love to new heights, Devon and Stacie knew they didn't want to do this life without one another. So, on August 26, 2022, Devon surprised Stacie, who was out to dinner with friends, and asked to spend the rest of his life with his best friend. I guess you could say they both took a chance and swiped in the right direction!

The Big Day!

Stacie & Devon look forward to spending time with you in the Dominican Republic.

Travel Insurance & Cancellation Policy

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 between the deposit and your anticipated travel date could bring a job change, illness, or other circumstances preventing 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 delays, trip cancellations, some medical coverage, lost luggage, and more. Our insurance allows you to cancel for any covered reason and receive a full refund. Uncovered reasons are covered up to 75%. 

Review the policy for more details here. 

If you book your air independently, we do offer a policy that will cover both your land and air. Please ask us for more info.

Insurance is just $149.00 per person and $59.00 per person for children under 12.

PAYMENT AND CANCELLATION POLICY*

The cost of the trip is not refundable. We urge you to purchase trip insurance to protect you from financial loss.

Please note! Once final payment has been made, no refunds are issued for a reduction in the number of nights, room category, or the number of people in your party. If you have trip insurance, we can file a claim for any reductions. This may incur a change fee.

Penalties apply to all bookings. However, if you have travel insurance, you can recoup these losses by filing a claim with travel insurance.

Please note! The cost of insurance is not refundable for any reason.

Still think you don't need insurance? Here are 14 reasons why you do

Flight info

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

If you're booking your flights independently, please be sure to send us your flight information no less than 45 days before departure via this link

Given the 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 shuttle area. Please do not stop inside the terminal and accept assistance from another party. The parties inside the airport are timeshare salespeople.

Your transfers are shared, non-stop transfers. If you prefer private transfers, they are available for $160.00 round trip.

Once you have exited the terminal, look for the AMStar Rep. They will be wearing tropical shirts and blue pants.

COVID FAQ

Please note that these are the policies that are in place as of June 27, 2022. These rules could change between now and your departure date. Any updates will be posted here. The cancellation policy will not be waived if any of these policies change. 

 

Q. Is a COVID test required to enter the Dominican Republic?

A. No. 

 

Q. Am I required to take a test to return to the United States? 

A. Effective June 12, 2022, travelers to the US are no longer required to test the day before flying home. 

 

Q. Could the COVID travel rules change? 

A. Definitely. It is impossible to know if the testing rules will be reinstated. The DR never required travelers to be vaccinated, but that is technically a possibility. If that would be an issue, we strongly suggest that you get the cancellation insurance offered with your reservation. 

 

Q. What happens if there is a travel ban?

A. In the event of a travel ban, we would move the date of the wedding. We will make every effort to ensure that everyone in the group is able to keep the same room and number of nights at the current group rate. 

Q. Does the travel insurance cover us if we decide to cancel due to fear of COVID?

A. Yes. Our travel insurance is a ” cancel for any reason” policy. 

 

Q. If there is a travel ban, aren’t the hotels and airlines required to give us a full refund?

A. No, they are not required to offer a refund for anything that falls under force majeure such as government shutdowns, war, pandemics, or acts of God. We strongly encourage you to purchase trip insurance to protect yourself from a financial loss.

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.

Check out the list of options here! 

Remember that certain tours may include a transfer of 2 or more hours each way.
