7. DAMAGE PROTECTION PLAN
We understand while you are on vacation that it is your time to enjoy your family and relax. Don’t let small incidental damages ruin your vacation. We know that small spills on the carpet and marks on the wall will happen. Although these are accidents, there is still a cost to correct the unintentional damage. This is why BookVacationVillas.com has developed the Damage Protection Plan. For a flat, non-refundable $99 fee, you will be covered for all small damages up to $300.00. You can add at the time of reservation, before check-in, but not after your arrival.
This will cover you for stains on the carpet, marks on the wall, broken dishes, stained or damaged towels, and other small items. The Damage Protection Plan does not cover negligence and gross intentional damages to the property. It also does not cover theft. If you choose the protection plan, we will still need your credit card information. If damage does occur, your card will not be charged. The only time the card would be charged is if the damage is negligent or for gross intentional damages, or damages that exceed $300.00. If you do not choose the protection plan, then your credit card will be charged if damages occur in the home during your stay. Please note: Guests who purchase the protection plan must also report damages upon arrival. If damages occur, these guests must also contact the onsite office and report the damages. Failure to do so will void the protection plan.
