What if I have to cancel due to COVID-19?
In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we understand that travel restrictions could be in place for when you choose to travel. Should any relevant State and Federal Government Travel Restrictions mean that you will be unable to change or cancel your booking inside the cancellation conditions of your reservation, we will allow a credit to be applied to a new booking within 3 years of your original dates, subject to availability. If there is a difference in price between your old booking and new booking, you will be liable to pay the difference.
What is your Cancellation Policy-

- c) 14 days or less notice is given prior to your arrival date, you will be charged a cancellation fee equivalent to your total reserved stay.
