WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND TRAVEL INSURANCE so that you are protected from any unexpected circumstances that may keep you from being able to keep your reservation.

Travel insurance will help reimburse you for your costs if you are not able to keep your reservation and your cancellation does not qualify for a refund under our cancellation policy. Travel insurance is easy to purchase, is inexpensive, and will save you a lot of frustration and money in the event that you cannot keep your reservation. Please be aware that Hatteras Island is in an area that has frequent tropical activity (hurricanes, tropical storms, etc.) and that Dare County rarely issues an evacuation order for these events. If you do not want to keep your reservation if a storm event is approaching we cannot refund your payment without an official evacuation order. Travel insurance will help you cover costs that we cannot refund. We cannot stress how important it is to purchase travel insurance. Please be sure to look online to find the best policy for you.
