Canceling A Reservation:
What is the cancellation policy on my reservation?
When you are completing the Secure Lodging Reservation Form, the Cancellation Policy will be provided in red or there will be a link to read the cancellation policy. You can also view the property information page to find the cancellation policy. These policies will vary from lodging to lodging, so you must read each one carefully. In general, the standard increments are that you must cancel the room(s) by 4 or 6 PM on the arrival date, or 24, 48, or 72 hours prior to your specified arrival; however, these are just general guidelines and the specific policy of the property will prevail. If you cancel before the deadline, generally you will not be charged a penalty by the lodging provider. Canceling after the stated period will result in a cancellation penalty fee from the lodging provider. Some reservations are non-refundable and cannot be cancelled after booking.
If the cancellation is outside of the time allotted, you may be charged for one night’s stay including tax recovery charges and service fees. Please read the specific cancellation policy provided for each property on the site and in any emails regarding your reservation.
More importantly, do not hesitate to call us at 1-888-963-8986 or 1-559-207-0545 if you are having difficulties or if you have any further questions. We are always here to assist you.
