We want you to have the best vacation experience with us so here are a few things you need to know when you book with High Country Properties.
A 50% deposit per property is due at the time of booking. The balance of the deposit is due and payable 30 days prior to your arrival, 75 days prior for Christmas and New Year’s bookings. The final deposit will be charged to your credit card at that time unless High Country Properties receives alternative instructions from you. If you book within 30 days of your arrival (75 days for Christmas and New Year’s bookings) the full cost of your stay will be charged at the time of reservation. High Country Properties reserves the right to hold a credit card number to cover the cost of any damages to the property due to negligence of the guest. This includes any extra cleaning services required if the property is left in an unreasonable condition.
Current tax rates are: 5% Goods and Service Tax, 8% Provincial Sales Tax, and 2% Destination Marketing Fee. Tax rates are subject to change without notice. GST does not apply to all properties.
A one-time property fee of $59.75 will be applied to all bookings.
Property or Date Change Requests
Once a reservation is secured with a deposit, property or date change requests can be accommodated subject to availability. If the request is made within 30 days prior to your arrival, a $25 administrative fee will apply. No changes can be made less than 48 hours prior to your arrival date.
There is a 30-day cancellation policy (75 days for Christmas and New Year season). If you cancel with 30 days’ notice or more, your deposit, less 10% of the original accommodation cost, will be refunded to you by cheque in the 30 business days following the cancellation. Cancellations made less than 30 days prior to arrival (75 days for Christmas and New Year season) are non-refundable, however a credit for the full amount minus 10% of the original accommodation cost fee will be held for you and can be applied to another reservation anytime in the 12 month period from the arrival date of the original reservation. Cancellation made less than 48 hours before your arrival date (14 days prior to your arrival date if reserved through December December 22nd – January 1st) are non-refundable.
Gift certificate – cancellation policy
No changes are permitted when a property is reserved using a promotional gift certificate. If you need to cancel your reservation, your security deposit or property fee will be forfeited and the gift certificate will be voided.
In the event of a road closure
High Country Properties will make its best effort to have private roads leading to the property cleared of snow. However, no guarantee will be made that all roads will be considered passable and no refunds will be given based on snow removal, or lack thereof. If the RCMP or Parks Canada closes a road due to heavy snowfall or an avalanche, a credit for the full amount of the reservation will be held for you and can be applied to a future booking.
Rental age requirement
Registered occupants must be a minimum of 25 years of age. For "luxury" homes, all registered occupants (i.e. adult groups) must be a minimum of 30 years of age. At check-in, the registered occupant may be required to produce a photo ID.
All properties are non-smoking. You may smoke outside the accommodation but are responsible for picking up all cigarette butts.
You are a guest in a privately owned vacation home in a residential neighborhood. Quiet time is 10:00 pm to 9:00 am. HCP has zero tolerance for undue noise disturbances caused by guests outside of quiet time. In the event that HCP receives a noise complaint, the registered guest will be charged a minimum of $250 ($500 for luxury homes) for the required response to this call. If the first warning is not adhered to, there will be an immediate eviction without refund.
Select vacation rental properties are pet-friendly. Advanced booking notification and a fee of $25 per pet (or $100 for 4 nights or longer) is required. Pets in properties that are unauthorized are subject to a flat cleaning fee of $250. If any additional wear and tear is incurred, the guest will be charged for repairs and replacement.
