IF THE WEATHER IS BAD -- MARRIOTT'S BAY POINT RESORT WILL MAKE GOOD

 PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla., March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the U.S. Travel Data Center, vacation travelers have demonstrated a distinct preference in the past few years for selecting destinations which reduce risk and increase expectations of a pleasurable experience. Taking the lead in the hospitality industry, Marriott's Bay Point Resort near Panama City Beach, Fla. is meeting the needs of vacationers by guaranteeing great weather -- in full.
 The first -- and only -- Florida resort to guarantee vacations against rain, the popular Gulf Coast resort is now offering a year-round Rain Cheque Guarantee Program on all family, golf, tennis, romance and holiday packages. If the resort rain gauge registers 1/10 of an inch or more in each of any four hours between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., guests receive a full reimbursement on their package for that day. The Rain Cheque Guarantee Program must be arranged at least 14 days prior to arrival.
 "With 300 days of sunshine annually, Panama City Beach radiates with spectacular weather," says Barry Hoehn, director of marketing. "In addition to the world's most beautiful beaches, nationally acclaimed golf and endless activities, Bay Point guests are now guaranteed famous Florida weather -- or their money back -- on their vacation package."
