Any references to number of days or deposits etc. where the qualification changes dependent on the size of the property, the description will read "LARGER FIRST (SMALLER IN BRACKETS)". E.g. if the deposit is 25% for chalets and 50% for condos, it will read: "a Rental Deposit of 25% (50%)..."
REFUNDS: 90 (45) days prior to the stay - 150 (90) days in the case of Christmas - bookings become non-refundable. In advance of 90 (45) days - 150 (90) days at Christmas - cancellations may be accepted with a full refund, less a $50 admin fee.
CANCELLATIONS AFTER THE DEADLINE ABOVE AND BEFORE THE BALANCE HAS BEEN PAID: Not accepted for Christmas bookings. Outside of the holidays guests can apply the amount paid to a future stay before the end of the same season the following year or allow Cona to exercise best practices to re-sell the dates and refund a percentage proportional to the monies collected for the replacement booking, less a $50 admin fee. E.g. A guest pays $500 deposit for a $2000 4-day stay and we re-rent for $1500 (3 nts) - the refund would be $375 less $50 = $325. If the guest chooses to re-book for alternate dates it must be done within 30 days of the cancellation and an admin fee may apply.
NON-REFUNDABLE CANCELLATIONS: Any cancellation with less than 21 (14) days notice is non-refundable and no options to re-book are provided. See our guarantee policy for any variances to this.
