As part of its commitment to customer service, Hotels.com is working with partner hotels to assist Gulf Coast travelers who may have plans disrupted due to Hurricane Isaac. Hotels.com partner hotels are activating flexible booking policies in parts of Florida, Alabama and Louisiana to help travelers in need of making last-minute travel changes as the storm impacts the Gulf Coast region. Travelers who’d like to utilize flex policies issued by airlines can consider alternate destinations such as San Antonio, Houston and parts of Florida (Jacksonville, Daytona Beach), which have made inventory available and have enacted last-minute offers.
