At the last Cayman Islands Government press briefing, Tourism Minister, the Honourable Moses Kirkconnell, outlined a phased reopening of the Cayman Islands borders, set to proceed on Thursday 1 October, 2020. Our islands our now COVID Free and listed as one of the safest places in the world right now. The CI Government have done an incredible job protecting the people of the Cayman Islands, and have kept a close eye on other Caribbean countries that have opened their borders and airports too soon, and have had a resurgence of the virus and had to reclose their borders. The Cayman Islands does not want this to happen, so the CI Government are erring on the side of caution to do what is best for the people and the country. The airport will re-open on the 1 October, but this is for returning residents and work permit holders, and those who own property or land here in the Cayman Islands. There will not be regular domestic flights into Grand Cayman until possible 1 November, if all goes well during the month of October.
Under PHASE I, all travellers wishing to travel to the Cayman Islands during the month of October, must first complete an online application form with the CIG – Cayman Islands Government. From there, the following will be required:
Phase II of the islands reopening is scheduled for November 1st. We hope by then there will be no self-isolation/quarantining or biometric tracking requirement once your arrive in the Cayman Islands.
The CIG is working on implementation details and will provide more guidance in the coming weeks.
Cayman Villas cancellation policy
Cayman Villas is very sympathetic to the COVID19 issue and the fact that our borders are closed until 30 September, 2020. Please understand that all bookings made with Cayman Villas were confirmed in good faith before the pandemic warning was issued by the World Health Organization.
Cayman Villas has severely relaxed our cancellation policies to demonstrate our company's values, best business practices and to continue to build and nurture imperative relationships with our clients, guests and agents. We hope this will create stronger partnerships for the future and continue to build trust between us all, until the situation changes.
The closure of the Owen Roberts International Airport, Grand Cayman and the Charles Kirkconnell International Airport, Cayman Brac has now been extended to 11:59pm on Wednesday 30 September 2020.
Guests with reservations between now and 31 October, 2020
For all guests with confirmed reservations between now and 31 October, 2020, please contact Cayman Villas via email at email@example.com, to discuss whether you would like to either:
Keep a 100% credit on file (no penalties will be applied) with the option to rebook your vacation within the next 12 months (starting from the departure date of your confirmed booking). Terms and conditions apply if you rebook within another rate season.
Revise your vacation dates now, with no penalties, and depending on availability of the property move your dates to a suitable time in the future. If you rebook during a time when the nightly rate is lower, you will receive a refund for any overall differences in the total rental charges. Should you choose to rebook at a later date when the rate is higher, or you add additional people, or add additional nights, then please note that you will be charged the difference, and this will be outlined and explained to you in detail. If you opt to go to another property completely, then differences in the nightly rate may apply.
Cancel your reservation and receive a full refund if you paid with Visa, MasterCard or Discover. If you paid with American Express, there will be a 3% Cancellation Fee applied, and the balance will be refunded. Unfortunately, American Express does not give back the Interchange/Credit Card fee that was incurred by Cayman Villas when the booking was originally made and confirmed. So we thank you in advance for your understanding regarding this expense that Cayman Villas has already incurred.
For guests with confirmed reservations from 1 November, 2020 onwards, our regular revision and cancellation polices will be adhered to for the time being. Of course we will deal with each reservation on a case by case basis, and will keep a close eye on the airport closure and other Government policies that are in place.
