Suggestions you can take for a healthy and safe vacation:
Given that the Covid risks and potential for future disruption of travel plans is known, we are abiding by our standard cancellation policies. If you would like to travel, we suggest either purchasing our Generali Global Assistance travel insurance or waiting to book until just prior to your travel, when you are more certain that you will be able to travel. Please know that if you are making a reservation during a known pandemic for which there is no vaccine or cure, you are accepting our standard cancellation policies as outlined in your rental agreement – no exceptions will be made.
Generali Global Assistance travel insurance has confirmed that they will cover for Covid-19 illness contracted before or during a trip, along with other covered reasons (accident, injury, death, weather related/mechanical travel delays, deployment, etc). Fear of travel is not a covered reason. State quarantines/travel restrictions are not a covered reason. You can read more about this travel insurance coverage at: https://www.gibsonbeachrentals.com/policies/.
In the event our beaches close for the County you are scheduled to visit, we are more than happy to offer an exception to our standard cancellation policies and allow guests a credit in the same unit for a stay before 12/31/2021. Gibson is not charging any fees to allow for you to cancel now and re-book later. If you want to go ahead and reserve the same time frame for next year, we can honor the same exact rates now for the same property. Should you choose new dates in 2020, new reservations will be booked at prevailing market rates – the rate you are booked at per night does not transfer, only the total of the reservation amount. Please note, a Gibson representative will reach out to you proactively if your reservation is affected – contacting our office can result in delayed response times.
If your reservation is more than 45 days out:
Our standard policies apply as indicated in your GBR Rental Agreement: Daily/Weekly Reservations cancelled a minimum of 45 days prior to the scheduled arrival date will result in a full refund of your prepayments less a $200.00 cancellation fee plus tax.
If your reservation is within the next 45 days:
Our standard policies as indicated in your GBR Rental Agreement read: Reservations cancelled between 45-30 days prior to your scheduled arrival will result in a refund of half of the “Rent Charges Total” plus tax and full “Housekeeping Charge” plus tax. Cancelling your reservation for any reason within 30 days of your scheduled arrival will result in complete forfeiture of Total Booking Charges.
