Attention Cancun Visitors!
Change Your Plans, Not Your Vacation
The unfortunate weather difficulties associated with Hurricane Wilma in Cancun and the Yucatan Peninsula may have put a damper on your plans to travel to the area, but it shouldn’t totally take away your vacation. If you were planning on visiting this part of Mexico now through October 31, Pleasant Holidays encourages you not to cancel your vacation; simply move it.
We will give you a $50 American Express Gift Cheque, if you re-book your vacation and travel by October 31, 2005 to any destination Pleasant Holidays offers. We’ll also waive any change fees. If space is available, we’ll make all the arrangements for you in Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta, Acapulco or other Mexico cities we serve, Hawaii, Tahiti, Australia, New Zealand, even Asia.
If you must cancel your vacation altogether, hotel, airline and/or other fees may apply. This offer is not combinable with any other.
But, again, we hope you’ll change your plans and still take that well-deserved vacation. And it won’t hurt to have another $50 in your pocket.
All passengers must have boarding passes with them to enter the Cancun Airport and return to the United States.
Passengers traveling on Alaska Airlines will need to go to the U.S. Consulate and bring their luggage with them to be listed for travel back to the U.S. and obtain their boarding passes.
All Other Airlines:
Passengers on all other airlines must go to Esquella La Salle in downtown Cancun, where representatives from the other airlines will list them on flights and provide boarding passes. Transportation is being provided to LaSalle by local authorities and our ground handler - Hotelbeds.
Cancun Airport Opening:
Pleasant Holidays has been advised the earliest departures will be October 28, 2005. Once the passenger obtains his/her boarding pass, the local representative from Hotelbeds will arrange accommodations to ensure passengers travel as a group to the airport in order to speed the transportation and aircraft boarding process. This process will continue for passengers departing each day thereafter.
Pleasant Holidays has been assured all our customers have been in contact with our local representative - Hotelbeds.
This information will be updated as more becomes available
