Renter requirements
For legal and accounting purposes, the person placing the reservation must be the same as the credit/debit card holder. This person is considered to be the guest. All other persons involved with the rental are considered to be the guest's invitees, and all discussion regarding reservation, cancellation, and damage policies will be discussed with the guest, not the guest's invitees. 


Cancel within 24 hours of booking and receive a full refund, if booking is made at least 72 hours in advance of stay.
Cancel 30 days or more prior to arrival, and receive a full refund less a 10% cancellation fee. Cancellation fee is based on entire total of reservation. 
Cancel 15-29 days prior to arrival, and receive a full refund less a 50% cancellation fee. Cancellation fee is based on entire total of reservation.
Cancel 0-14 days prior to arrival, and the full reservation total will be withheld.

While these circumstances are a rarity, the cancellation policy will be enforced for occurrences beyond the company’s or guest’s control, including but not limited to: wildfire, smoke, air quality, weather, guest health issues, family issues, difficult road conditions, power outages, cancelled flights, early check-outs, no-shows. Our area experiences all 4 seasons, and the weather/natural events common in each season. Please make sure you are aware of these events depending on the time of year you plan to visit.

Travel insurance has been made available during the booking process. Travel Insurance is STRONGLY suggested so that you may protect your investment from certain unforeseen circumstances, including some of those mentioned above.

There are also several other independent companies who can quote you for travel insurance. Please note that Love Yosemite Inc. is not affiliated with any of these travel insurance companies and have no final say in the refunds they pay out.
