Q: Do I get more room in a Vacation Rental?
A: Well of course you do. The average hotel room is maybe 300 square feet but the usual vacation rental house is 2,000 square feet. Space to hang out with your family or friends. Sit in the living room instead of squeezing into the only chair in the room.
Q: Why is there a deadline for checkout times?
A: Cleaning rooms, condos, homes and resorts between guests is a big job. It can take hours to make a place spic and span. Housekeepers need to know they can start immediately upon departure of a guest to a unit fully clean before the next guest arrives. Staying late disrupts the cleaning schedule. If the next guest is not scheduled for immediate arrival, a unit may be available for late checkouts for which charges usually apply.

A: This insurance can be purchased up until the final trip payment is made or 30 days prior to arrival, whichever comes first.
