Life’s changed for everyone this past year, things that are normally set in stone may now have some wiggle room.  That being said it isn’t all about discounts.  Understand your suppliers refund policy, don’t be shy to ask if they have Covid19 policy in place, what happens if you can’t get to the island? Boarders close? Its always best to air on the side of caution, leave no stone unturned that way there are no surprises.
