I called DRI to cancel a reservation for Hawaii in August 1 check-in. I thought that today was the last day to cancel within the 90-day no penalty cancellation window. I marked it on my calendar based on the August 1 check-in date minus 90-days.

When I called, I found out that last cancellation day was yesterday, 91 days before check-in. The vacation counselor waived the penalty, so I didn't lost any points. But, like many things in life, it's good to not skate up the exact deadline.

I had a similar situation last month. It was for Cabo Azul. I had up until April 24th to cancel my July 24th reservation and waited to the very last moment because I was hoping that somehow Mexico was going to be taken off of the advisory to not travel there list. It wasn’t happening and reluctantly I cancelled the reservation there for the second time in two years. I will try again for next summer. I think it’s the wishful thinking that makes us want to hope that the inevitable won’t have to happen. The other reason can be just good old fashioned procrastination.

It's always been 91 days. RPP used to be 24 hours but it is now 31 days. Good to hear they waived the penalty.

You should have gone to Cabo Azul. We were there in February and felt perfectly safe at the Resort and in Town.

As vaccinations continue, we decided to head back to Mexico in December...have cancelled 3 trips there. It is not like we go there to socialize - but enjoy their beaches, food, weather and the relaxation. When your heart and head tell you do go........GO!

I travelled more last year than any other year (122 nights timesharing and one cruise in Feb before they got shut down). I never felt unsafe anywhere I travelled.
