As much as we would love to control the weather, flight delays, health issues, and any other unexpected and unwanted travel mishaps, we cannot. Because cancellation fees do apply, we recommend you consider travel insurance.

If you are unable to keep your travel plans and your cancelation falls within the cut-off dates, we will of course attempt to rebook for room, but if we are not successful, travel insurance may reimburse you for the cancelation fees.
