Douglas/McDaniel Wedding FAQ's
1. Can I bring a guest or guests with me to the wedding?
You are more than welcome to bring as many guests as you’d like to enjoy the vacation and all of the weekend festivities with us, however, we are very limited to the amount of guests that can attend our very intimate ceremony + reception, so please allow your guests to enjoy the beautiful resort while you join us for the actual wedding. We look forward to enjoying the entire weekend with everyone.

All-Inclusive resorts offer: All you can eat (gourmet restaurants and buffets), All you can drink (alcohol, mixed drinks, daiquiris, and non-alcoholic beverages), Entertainment (the resort will have daily and nightly activities including shows and a night club), Water Sports (kayaking, paddle boarding, and other non-motorized water sports are typically included), Room Service includes 24-hour room service of food.

You make a $200 deposit to lock in your rate, flight, and room. Your remaining balance is due 30-45 days of the trip. You can choose to make partial payments in between or a lump sum payment when the balance is due.
4. How do I make payments?

5. Can I get Trip Insurance?
Yes! There are two types of coverage and the price is based on the amount of your trip. The basic Travel Protection Plan will refund you in the form of a gift certificate and Travel Protection Plus will refund you in cash. Feel free to read about the other benefits of each plan at the link below. (The cost of Travel Protection is paid within 7 days of when you book your trip; it is typically paid along with your initial deposit)
6. Does the price include round-trip transportation from the airport to the hotel, and vice versa?
Yes! The price of your trip includes your transportation to and from the resort/airport. You will receive detailed Trip Instructions within 7 days of your trip that contains this information. (If you only book a hotel-stay, please email your flight itinerary to ensure that your transportation is arranged.)
7. Can I upgrade my room?
Absolutely! As long as the hotel has availability, you can upgrade your room to Ocean View, Swim-Out (pool outside your balcony), Ocean Front (Ocean outside of your balcony), VIP (Butler Services), or any other room that your resort offers. Go to the hotel’s website under “Accomodations” to see the room offerings.
8. What is the benefit of using a Travel Agent versus booking on Expedia, Orbitz, or Travelocity.
We prefer that all wedding guests book through Just Book It Travel. Since everyone will receive a group discount, you’ll never pay more by using us versus booking on your own. We are also able to more easily keep the group organized and informed by everyone booking centrally.
9. Can I travel with a companion that is flying from a different city than me?
Yes! Let us know which cities each guest is traveling from and we can arrange that.
10. What if I need to cancel my trip and I did not purchase Travel Protection?
Please refer to the cancellation fee schedule at the bottom of your itinerary. If you purchased Travel Protection, ignore this fee schedule.
11. Can I book just the hotel with the Travel Agent and book my flight separately?
Yes! The deposit to reserve just the hotel room is $50 per person. You can either contact me to book your flight at a later time or you can book your flight separately. Just remember to send your detailed flight itinerary so that I can arrange your ground transportation.
