We ask that you inform us of your decision to cancel the booking as soon as possible by email or phone, if by phone please confirm in writing.

It is quite possible to get an insurance against the risk of cancellation. We strongly suggest all guests to take a proper insurance coverage against this risk.

You are free to use your usual insurance company or you may want to check out the travel and cancellation insurance offered by  World Nomads.

Mind that some houses apply another cancellation policy. In that case you will find these details in the rental agreement.

If we or the owner are forced to cancel your booking due to a personal force majeure event, we will refund in full any money you have already paid us as full and final settlement. Please be assured that in this unlikely event, we will assist you to find alternative accommodation. In exceptional cases where the force majeur event is not under our or the owner's control, we will postpone the booking to a later date in agreement with the guest.

Our liability under this agreement is limited to the rental price.
