Vacation Rental Cancellations Can Be Costly
While most hotels offer 24-hour cancellations, it’s not the case with vacation rentals. Many of them have 30 to 60-day cancellation or no refund policies, especially vacation rentals in faraway Hawaii. Just hoping that life will not sabotage your vacation plans is not the best strategy. Vacation rental owners deal with those situations all the time: the guests cancelling due to loss of the job, sickness or death, marriage or birth. Cancellation often happen close to the start of the trip, and the guest not only has to deal with the problems that caused the cancellation, but also has to bear the loss of the deposit or the whole payment.
Besides cancellation, there are many more potential adversities in which comprehensive travel insurance policy can protect you from losses.
Keep the Records
A travel protection plan from Arch RoamRight may cover your non-refundable trip payments made to the vacation condo owner or manager when the claim is made for a covered reason. Make sure to sign a vacation rental agreement with the owner or manager, that clearly states the travel dates and the cancellation policy. Keep records of all payments made. At the time of your claim, you will need to provide proof of loss including the signed vacation rental agreement and payment records.
