VILLA RENTAL POLICIES
1. RESERVATIONS: Our villas require a 50% deposit at time of booking and full payment 90 days before arrival.
2. CANCELATION POLICY: Our policies are standard in the vacation rental industry once payments are made, there are no refunds. When a booking for a villa is received, the property is removed from the market for those dates, and potential renters look elsewhere. If we accepted last-minute cancellations, the odds of rebooking a property for those dates are very low. We understand life happens and will work with you if you need to move your travel dates. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to move your travel dates. We will attempt to rebook your visit based on availability.
There are no refunds for early departures, delayed arrivals, construction activity, inclement weather, or reduction in the number of nights reserved for any reason. If the villa becomes unsuitable for casualty loss Pacific Vacation liability will be limited to the return of all monies paid on account at the time of cancellation. Trip cancellation insurance is highly recommended.
3. NON-ESSENTIAL TRAVEL: Vacations are considered nonessential travel, and therefore have been subject to restrictions, recommendations and advisories from numerous governmental departments and agencies for years for many reasons.
Examples of such agencies but not limited to:
United States Department of State
Global Health Advisory
National Weather Service
Pacific Vacation is not liable for events beyond our control. No show rentals are forfeited in full. Transportation disruptions, transportation cancellations, travel advisories, travel restrictions and travel recommendations pertaining to natural disasters, terrorist activity, and civil/political unrest, epidemic disease or illness, health advisories, quarantines, evacuation orders, border closures, government mandates, safety and security threat advisories, essential utility outages, unexpected serious illness or injury to a traveler, lost, stolen or changes to visa or passport requirements that make it impossible to travel to the destination are examples but not limited to events beyond our control.
After the declaration of multiple COVID-19 variants as a global pandemic by the World Health Organization, the extenuating circumstances policy no longer applies because COVID-19 and its consequences are no longer unforeseen or unexpected but rather a known risk with travel.
