Insurance – Damage Protection
The signing occupant of the unit is financially responsible for any damage to a property, whether made by himself, his family, or his guests. We have implemented a policy to relieve you of the worry of the accidental damage. You have two options of how to insure your stay. We recommend that you use our damage waiver program. You receive more coverage, for less money up front.
Damage Waiver Program: A $58 non-refundable "Damage Waiver Program" fee will be added to your reservation. We realize accidents happen and this will eliminate the possibility of charges for minor accidental damages. This covers accidental damage up to $1,000. The signing occupant will still be responsible for damages that are deliberate.
Damage Deposit Program: The occupant can pay a damage deposit to cover accidental damage of the unit for up to the amount of the deposit made. Any damages in excess of the deposit made will be billed to your account. If the unit is inspected and seen in good condition, the deposit may be refunded to you 30 days after departure.
