GETAWAY TO PARADISE
The Getaway to Paradise program you have received is an offer that
provides accommodations for 2 adults, one of which must be 21 years of age. If married, you must travel together.
The first step in the program is to complete the activation form and mail
it to the address provided at the bottom of the form. If you have not
chosen a destination, you may certainly do so in the future. You must also send in a
$50 deposit. Please be sure your check is made payable to Getaway to
Paradise. The activation form must be mailed and postmarked within 30
days of issue date for this offer to be valid. This deposit is refundable
on request less a $10 processing fee. The request must be made in writing
at any time prior to the expiration date before confirming reservations or
within 30 days of completion of travel. The refund request should be
mailed to Getaway to Paradise, 4802 Gunn Hwy, Suite 158, Tampa, FL 33624
or emailed to
email@example.com. Refunds will be mailed approximately
4 weeks after the request is received.
Once we receive your deposit and activation form, you will receive a
confirmation email from Getaway to Paradise. This email provides the
validity dates of your offer, which is one year from your issue date.
Please allow 4 to 6 weeks from your mailing date to receive this email.
You will be given a telephone number to call for reservations when you
have chosen your destination and dates.
Once we take your reservation request, we will contact you when you are
confirmed. Please allow at least two to three weeks for confirmation. Then you will
be contacted again with hotel information. Your deposit is refundable
after your hotel stay is completed. Instructions about receiving your
refund can be found in your terms and conditions.
The hotels offered in our program are similar to Holiday Inn to Choice
Hotels. Our program offers 2 nights, but, usually, an additional night can
be added at an additional fee. The fee will be discussed at the time of
reservations. Also, most of our hotels allow up to two children in the
same room. For your information, the additional
night is usually $99 and children rates may be as low as $10 per person.
Remember, the offer is for room rate only. Holiday, peak season and
weekend surcharges apply. Tax and resort fees, if applicable, are the
responsibility of the traveler. The taxes will vary according to your
destination--but usually run $10-15 per night.
Arrival date must be a minimum of 30 (we suggest at least 45) and a maximum of 60 days in advance.
The more advance time you provide us, the better the hotel availability.
There may be certain times that no hotels are available at your
destination on your desired dates of travel. Getaway always prefers at
least 2 choices of dates and destinations.
If you have further questions, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with
