CANCELLATIONS: If the property is not re-rented for the entire cancelled reservation period but for a portion of the time or at a reduced rate, the tenant will be responsible for the difference. This amount shall be retained from payments already paid by tenant. If the unit is re-rented for the entire time and for the same amount at no loss to the owner, the tenant will receive a refund minus a $100 cancellation fee. If this is a concern, you may want to consider purchasing trip cancellation insurance. A website called “insuremytrip.com” offers quote comparisons on nearly 60 policies available from 14 companies.
