HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -- In a departure from the series of recent cancellation policy revisions by many cruise lines and hoteliers, SuperClubs said it revised its cancellation policy -- and it will come to the fore only if a war with Iraq breaks out or a terrorist incident occurs in North America.

Under its revised standard cancellation policy, SuperClubs will allow clients at any time prior to travel to postpone and reschedule their travels for up to 12 months without incurring a $250 per person cancellation fee.

The policy applies at SuperClubs' 12 resorts in Jamaica, the Bahamas, Curacao, the Dominican Republic and Brazil.

Agents' commissions are protected; agents will collect their commission after the client travels.

"We felt a need to recognize the obvious concerns among travel agents and travelers. Agents can reassure their clients that their travel plans are safe in these uncertain times," said John J. Issa, executive chairman.

SuperClubs' standard policy requires 21 days' advance notice to cancel; if a cancellation occurs less than 21 days before travels, a $250 per person cancellation fee is charged.
