Refund if rains

Hotel in Italian island offers
CNN, Atlanta
Refund if rains

We’ve all seen it: an otherwise exceptional hotel gets a one-star Yelp or TripAdvisor rating from a grumpy guest because of bad weather.

Even though there’s nothing a destination can do to guarantee perfect weather during vacation season, the Italian island of Elba—best known for being where Napoleon was exiled toward the end of his life—has a new program called “Elba No Rain,” where guests on the island during May can get their night’s hotel fee refunded if it rains.

According to Elba’s official tourism site, “the overnight stay is free for days when there is rainfall for more than two hours between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.”

To qualify for the deal, guests must be staying at one of an approved list of local inns and guesthouses that are participating in the program.

“Tour operators tell us that weather forecasts of a rainy weekend can lead to a drop in bookings and attendance of over 20%,” Claudio Della Lucia, tourism coordinator for the island, told CNN via email.
