What is Your Cancellation Policy?
Because of COVID-19 and changing travel restrictions, the usual cancellation policy is being relaxed. Guests may cancel without penalty up to 24 hours in advance. The normal policies outlined below do not apply until further notice. Please note, no shows will still result in 100% of the total booking cost applied to your credit card or PayPal account.
Since PEI is such a popular tourist destination every cancellation is a lost opportunity for another potential guest. As such, we need to be fair to everyone. Summer is a very popular time for tourism in PEI and many cottages are fully booked well in advance, so there is a one week cancellation policy in effect so we can make the cottage available to someone else. Also during winter months, we may need to clear snow off the driveway and the properties, therefore there is a one week cancellation policy to ensure that we can prepare for your stay and any inclement weather.
- Peak Season: June 24 to Sept 5, we require a minimum one week notice.
- Regular Season: June 1 to June 24, we require a minimum of 72 hours notice.
- Low Season: Sept 6 to May 31, we require a minimum of one week notice.
During peak season, cancellations made in less than 7 days of the scheduled arrival will result in 30% of the total booking cost applied to your credit card. Last minute cancellations made within 48 hours of the scheduled arrival time will result in 50% of the total booking cost applied to your credit card.
