Weather and other Circumstances

other unforeseen circumstances which may affect your stay.

We highly recommend you purchase travel insurance to cover your stay in case of a natural disaster or other major event and you need to
cancel within 60 days of your stay. Trip insurance is usually a minimal amount and worth the cost. Note that we do not sell trip insurance, but you
can purchase it on your own. A few sites that are easy to use:

CSA Travel Protection
Travel Guard
Trip Insurance Store

Be sure to carefully read the insurance that you purchase so you know which cancellation reasons are covered and which ones are not.
