CANCELLATION POLICY:

 

The Initial Reservation fee of $500 is non-refundable under any circumstance. All other rental charges (less any taxes) are non-refundable unless the owner or owner’s agent is able to re-rent the villa during the period reserved.  In the event the villa can be re-rented, a handling charge equal to 20% of the total rental fee will be deducted.  In addition, all other fees incurred in rebooking the villa, including but not limited to discounts that must be offered or commissions paid, will be deducted from the refunded amount. 

In the event of very severe weather which results in the need for evacuation of homes in the immediate area, as deemed necessary by municipal authorities, our property managers will make every effort to find alternate safe accommodations or to arrange for evacuation whichever is appropriate and allowed by law.  

 

We cannot be responsible for Airline changes, cancellations, acts of terrorism, global peril or personal emergencies and no refunds or adjustments can be offered in these or any other events.  We and our property managers will work diligently to re-rent the villa in the event you must cancel so that you may receive a partial refund or credit towards a future stay.   The safest, most affordable way to guard against any eventuality, and to insure that you will obtain a full refund quickly, is to purchase “Cancel for Any Reason” (CFAR) trip cancellation insurance.                  
 

The 2017 Hurricanes brought into sharp focus the need for trip cancellation insurance. The Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020 emphasized the limits of regular trip cancellation insurance and the need to purchase CFAR for future travel.  As a small “mom and pop” business, in order to keep the costs of rentals affordable to our guests and far lower than a comparable stay in a series of hotel rooms in the future, we are unable to absorb the costs of non-coverage. Over the 20 years of Andante’s history, we have worked hard and taken great pride in this. The only way for us to do that is to have our guests take responsibility for purchasing CFAR travel insurance.  We are therefore strongly urging that all guests purchase CFAR trip cancellation insurance for their stays, at the time that they reserve with us. We are not requiring it, but we are notifying guests that we will adhere to our established cancellation policy for all future rentals.

We highly recommend that you purchase Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR) Trip Cancellation insurance for all dates of travel, not only during hurricane season. Our experience has been that the most frequent causes for cancellation have not been weather related, especially during the recent pandemic.
