Frequently Asked Questions


Worry-Free Bookings™ is a travel reimbursement service, which lets you upgrade an accommodation property's existing policies to include enhanced refund terms and conditions when making a booking. These additional Worry-Free Bookings™ Terms and Conditions provide you a 100% reimbursement of the total booking value minus the Worry-Free Booking Service Fee if you are unable to attend or complete your reservation due to a last-minute illness (including COVID-19 infection) or other unexpected health conditions.

What is Worry-Free Bookings™ and how does it work?


When you make a reservation and select the Worry-Free Booking™ option, a Worry-Free Booking™ fee is added to your total booking cost. This fee extends the Terms and Conditions of the individual booking to provide a 100% reimbursement if an unforeseen illness or health condition occurs 14 days prior to the arrival date or less, which prevents you from attending or completing your booking. The full cost of the reservation is collected at the time of booking.

By paying a Worry-Free Booking™ fee, you extend the property's terms and conditions to reimburse you for your reservation if you have unexpected health conditions including last-minute illness, changes to a pre-existing medical condition, accident or injury, COVID-19 infection, or death of an immediate family member within up to 14 days prior to your arrival.
