If cancelled within 48 hours of the pickup date/time a fee of $55.00 or 5% of the prepaid amount (whichever amount is greater) will apply. Reservations whose total value are less than the cancellation fee itself will not be eligible for any refund. Failure to cancel prior to pick up date and time will result in all charges being final (no refunds, no changes, non-transferable).
