We have some friends who are wanting to join us in February for the new deal. What is due when you book the vacation? When is the rest due? What is the cancellation policy?

Thanks

$200 to book package. Balance due 45 days out from arrival. $100 and $200 penalties to cancel after that and then closer to the date- I think within 30 days of arrival.

OK, checked...$100 cancellation fee up until 6 days from arrival. Then it is a $200 charge to cancel. You can rebook another date I believe and not lose the $200. There is a smaller- $50 ?- fee to change a ressie within the 45 day window.

I wanted to add that the $50 change fee only applies of your change in reservation results in a lower price.

Ah yes, kind of like my satellite bill. If I upgrade to a higher price, they are more than happy to change it for free... Thanks for fixing that omission ;)

Is there a penalty if you upgrade from a value to a mod?
