Villas Virgin Gorda requires that 50% of the rent is due at the time you secure your reservation. The balance of the rent is due no later than 45 days prior to your arrival. No-shows, late arrivals, change in number of persons, and early departures after arrival are non-refundable. (See hurricane policy, below.) No refunds will be granted unless there is a problem that cannot be cured within a reasonable amount of time, or which causes the Guest extreme and undue discomfort or serious inconvenience. Guests who abandon their villa without authority agree they have no rights to compensation. Prices at all villas are subject to change. No discounts or increases in pricing will be made once the Guest’s deposit payment has been submitted.
There is no refund during HIGH SEASON (November 15 – May 15) unless the property can be re-booked for the same rate and time. If the property can be rented under these conditions, 80% of the payment made will be refunded. During LOW-SEASON, (May 16 – November 14) if more than 45 days notice is provided, 70% of payments made will be refunded. If cancellations are made with less than 45 days notice, no payment is refunded. We strongly suggest you purchase travel insurance to cover your costs in the event you are forced to cancel.
Where applicable, damage deposits are refunded within 30 to 45 days of your departure, provided there is no breakage, damage, missing items, long-distance calls charged to the villa’s telephone or extraordinary clean up. NOTE: Most of our villas have long distance restrictions on the phone; a credit or calling card must be used for long distance calls.

If the guests leave on their own volition, no refund of any sort will be given. It is the sole responsibility of the guest to incur any travel related expenses associated with an early departure from the villa whether they leave on their own accord or if asked to do so by the staff of Villas Virgin Gorda.
