At Surf N’ Stay San Diego, we understand that life’s unpredictable nature might require changes to your travel plans. To help you manage these changes with ease, here are our cancellation and refund policies.

When you book a stay with us, we hope you can make it as planned. However, if you need to cancel, here are the guidelines you need to follow:
1. Notice Period: To cancel your reservation without penalty, we require a 30-day notice. This gives us ample time to offer the slot to another guest.
2. Refunds: If you cancel within the required notice period, we will refund any payments you’ve made to us.
3. Rescheduling: Should you need to change your visit to another week, we will do our best to accommodate your new preferred dates, availability permitting.
4. Last-Minute Cancellations**: If you cancel without sufficient notice, and we cannot resell your place, unfortunately, we cannot offer a refund. Therefore, we recommend having travel insurance that covers such scenarios.

Important Considerations:
– We urge you to secure adequate travel insurance in cases of unexpected cancellations such as personal injury or a family emergency.
– In the event of a cancellation from our side due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control (e.g., natural disasters), Surf N’ Stay San Diego is not liable for any refunds or travel costs.

Travel Insurance:
We cannot stress enough the importance of purchasing travel insurance. It’s a safety net that helps you recover costs for the surf camp, airfare, and other non-refundable expenses in the event of last-minute cancellations due to injury, illness, work emergencies, or a death in the family. We recommend reviewing and choosing a policy that covers all possible scenarios, including “operator cancellations.”

For further inquiries or assistance with choosing travel insurance, please don’t hesitate to contact us. At Surf N’ Stay San Diego, your peace of mind and satisfaction are paramount. We look forward to helping you have an unforgettable surfing experience with complete confidence in your travel plans!
