Breakdown of our standard cancellation policy for Vacation Rentals
Our Cancellation Policy is as follows:
All cancellations must be received in writing and are subject to the following penalty percentages of the total rental fee:
Effective January 13, 2022
20% from the initial date of booking up to 61 days prior to the arrival date (the rental deposit is non-refundable).
100% if less than 60 days prior to the arrival date.
Prior to January 13, 2022
20% from the initial date of booking up to 31 days prior to the arrival date (the rental deposit is non-refundable).
100% if less than 30 days prior to the arrival date.
The guest is reserving a specific property for specific dates. The dates and the property cannot be changed, doing so would effectively be canceling the original reservation, and so the cancellation policy would apply.
If the length of stay is allowed to be reduced from the original dates at Gulf Coast Vacation Rentals' discretion, the cancellation policy will apply to the nights that have been canceled. The minimum night stay requirement at the time of booking must be met at all times. Rental nights cannot be canceled if they reduce the total number of nights stay below this minimum.
Cancellations of the arrangement due to non-payment of the balance by the due date will result in a loss of all monies. All cancellations must be confirmed in writing.
In the event of the chosen rental property becoming unavailable for any reason Gulf Coast Vacation Rentals reserves the right to substitute another property of equal or higher standard within Gulf Coast
Vacation Rentals’ portfolio. In the absence of another available property being available, Gulf Coast Vacation Rentals reserves the right to cancel the reservation and refund all monies paid.
Gulf Coast Vacation Rentals reserves the right to cancel any reservation made as a result of an error, omission or other unforeseen circumstances. This includes verbal, written or website errors which may affect the price, availability or type of property rented.
All descriptions given on the websites are made in good faith and are subject to change. Gulf Coast Vacation Rentals accepts no liability whatsoever for errors or omissions.
24. Travel Restrictions
In the event guests are unable to reach their rental destination due to Florida State or US Federal Government Travel Restrictions, Gulf Coast Vacation Rentals will offer a credit. A request for credit will only be considered between 31 days prior to arrival and the arrival date. The credit or refund will only be available if the travel restrictions are current at the time of the request. A credit or refund will not be considered if travel restrictions are imposed after the arrival date. Guests are strongly advised to purchase travel insurance to protect their investment.
Our Cancellation Policy: In response to changing marketplace conditions, Gulf Coast Vacation Rentals is committed to ensuring our guests experience flexibility during these challenging times. We are therefore implementing the following policies:
Please note that we will not be issuing refunds (including partial pro-rated amounts) if a guest decides to vacate on a date earlier than their scheduled departure date.
Gulf Coast Vacation Rentals have no control over the closure of or disruption in services usually made available to community residents and/or guests. Guests are renting the property and community amenities may be added or reduced at any time. Gulf Coast Vacation Rentals will not compensate guests for any loss of community amenities, whether it be temporary or permanent.
