Updated Terms and Conditions concerning the Coronavirus Pandemic: Updated 03/20/2020 at 7:32AM.

Due to the ongoing pandemic and the new information being released daily, we are updating our cancellation policies as new information becomes available. This includes more flexible booking options and full refunds for reservations that may have not qualified before this began.

As of 03/20/2020, we are extending our new cancellation policy up to May 14th. All reservations affected by the travel restrictions or "Stay At Home Orders" scheduled for arrival before May 14th, can be changed or cancelled at no charge. Reservations scheduled to arrive on May 14th, 2020 or after, are currently subject to our normal canellation policies. Those policies are listed further below under "CANCELLATION POLICY", If you purchased the CSA Travel Protection that was offered at your checkout (this applies to reservations made through Love Yosemite! website) you can contact CSA about refunds that may not qualify under normal guidelines.

This updated cancellation policy applies to bookings DIRECTLY through the Love Yosemite! website. As of 03/20/2020, Airbnb is offering free cancellations until April 14th, with normal reservation rules and cancellation fees applying for arrivals after April 14th. Homeaway/VRBO is offering guests to move their dates for free to a later date, or offer a 50% refund up until April 30th. Reservations after April 30th are currently subject to normal cancellation policies.

As you can see, our cancellation policy far surpasses any current booking platforms, as we want to provide extra flexibilty and reassurance for our fantastic guests.
