Cheap Caribbean is known for the "free your mind" program it offers its travelers: $100 coupon off if it rains, $50 promotional code to use for every successive trip you book through the company, a price match guarantee and a hurricane and protection plan. If you are at all concerned about traveling during hurricane season, for example -- some of the travel dates cut into the beginning of the season -- we usually recommend independent travel insurance.
