Sensible Weather Announces Collective Hill Country as First Partner to Offer High Temperature Weather Guarantee

Sensible now offers its heat Weather Guarantee to give travelers confidence to book in the hottest months of the year

April 9, 2024

LOS ANGELES (April 9, 2024) – Sensible Weather, the leading weather protection provider for travel and outdoor experiences, announces its first partner offering Weather Guarantees protecting against high heat: Collective Hill Country, the luxury outdoor retreat in Texas,  overlooking Montesino Ranch. 

Sensible first launched its Weather Guarantee in 2021 to protect businesses and consumers against the impact of rain on outdoor activities and experiences. Recognizing how various weather conditions can negatively impact outdoor experiences, Sensible has now expanded its offering to protect against uncomfortably high temperatures in addition to rain.

“Considering the record-breaking temperatures last year - and with this year expected to be even hotter - heat has become a major consideration in planning where and when to travel,” says Nick Cavanagh, Ph.D., Sensible CEO. “Expanding our Weather Guarantees to include high-temperature protection as well as rain only made sense as we started thinking about the potential negative impacts on travel this spring and summer.”  

Known for its luxury destinations and retreats, Collective Retreats was created to connect guests to the most spectacular natural settings. Already offering Sensible’s Weather Guarantee for rain at select properties, the company has begun rolling out high-temperature protection, starting with Collective Hill Country in Wimberley, TX. 

Every tent at the Hill Country retreat allows for a restorative and enlightening stay in an indoor/outdoor sanctuary immersed in nature. Less than an hour outside of Austin and just 90 minutes from San Antonio, Collective Hill Country offers a connection to an incredibly diverse natural landscape with everything from enchanting peaks to winding rivers and ancient caves all ready to be explored.

Guests can add a Weather Guarantee for high temperatures before they check in at the Hill Country retreat, the first property to offer this to guests. In case of forecast temperatures exceeding a predetermined threshold, Sensible will proactively notify guests in the morning via text message with a link to collect reimbursement. As with Sensible’s Weather Guarantee for rain, there is no need for guests to file a claim or cancel the planned activity to receive their reimbursement.

"Providing a shield against high temperatures aligns perfectly with our collective goal of inspiring individuals to venture out and discover the wonders of our world, particularly in regions like the captivating Texas Hill Country, known for its brilliant sunshine," expressed Peter Mack, Founder and CEO of Collective Retreats. "By ensuring this protection, we aim to instill confidence in our guests, allowing them to book with assurance, free from concerns about weather hindering their experience."
