peace of mind
We know the last 17 months have been hard for everyone. With vaccination efforts moving along quickly in many countries and restrictions being eased all over the world, a return to normal seems closer than ever. After these many months of uncertainty and unpredictability, however, we understand the hesitations and concerns you may have when planning a trip. That is why we have introduced a series of measures to set your mind at ease when you book with us, so you can focus on your vacation. If the unexpected happens, we make every effort to help you cancel your trip under the best terms possible. However, for contractual reasons, we unfortunately cannot always guarantee a full refund. We therefore encourage you to read the following cancellation policy thoroughly, so you can make fully informed decisions and meet any deadlines. This document is part of our effort to be clear and transparent. Its aim is to describe, as unambiguously as possible, the procedures and deadlines to be followed in order to cancel your reservation. We also wish to assure you that we take your safety very seriously. We therefore comply with the strictest anti-Covid standards and implement all health practices recommended by government and public health authorities. You can be sure that your accommodations will be perfectly clean and sanitized when you arrive. Before your trip, we strongly recommend that you look into the conditions for entry into your destination country, if applicable, as well as the restrictions implemented at the local level. Here you can check the current government policies for France and the Balearic Islands.
Our cancellation policy
Standard cancellation policy For stays reserved more than 7 days in advance, a deposit equal to 30% of the total rate will be charged upon reservation. This deposit is non-refundable, regardless of the circumstances. If you cancel your stay more than 7 days prior to your arrival date, no additional charges will be billed to you. After that deadline, we will charge the remaining 70% of your payment. Unfortunately, you will not be entitled to a refund. For example, if you reserved a stay from Saturday, September 18 through Saturday, September 25, and you cancel on Friday, September 10, we will only keep the 30% deposit. On the other hand, if you cancel on Wednesday, September 15, you will need to pay for the reservation in full. If you reserve your stay less than 7 days in advance, you will need to pay a non-refundable fee equal to 100% of the reservation amount. Flexible cancellation policy If you need more flexibility or are concerned that circumstances may prevent you from traveling, we have also established a flexible cancellation policy, which you may add to your reservation at time of payment. This is also a good option for you if you prefer not to take out comprehensive travel insurance. By selecting this flexible cancellation policy, rather than the standard cancellation policy, you will incur an additional 10% fee. Our flexible policy allows you to cancel or change your reservation free of charge up until 2 days before departure. A 30% deposit will be charged upon reservation, and the balance must be paid 48 hours before your arrival. If you cancel less than 48 hours before your arrival date, no refund will be possible. For stays reserved more than 2 days in advance, a deposit equal to 30% of the total rate will be charged upon reservation. This deposit is non-refundable, regardless of the circumstances. If you cancel your stay more than 2 days prior to your arrival date, no additional charges will be billed to you. After that deadline, we will charge the remaining 70% of your payment. Unfortunately, you will not be entitled to a refund. For example, if you reserved a stay from Saturday, September 18 through Saturday, September 25, and you cancel on Friday, September 10, we will only keep the 30% deposit. On the other hand, if you cancel on Friday, September 17, you will need to pay for the reservation in full. If you reserve your stay less than 2 days in advance, you will need to pay a non-refundable fee equal to 100% of the reservation amount.
Special Covid-19 policy
The travel and hospitality industry has had to reinvent itself as a result of the pandemic, and Highstay is no exception. We are trying to adapt to the frequent changes in government regulations aimed at slowing the spread of the virus, and we are making every possible effort to keep you informed at every stage. Unfortunately, in certain cases, we are contractually obligated to apply our standard policies and remain unable to offer you a fee-free cancellation or refund. That is why we strongly recommend that you take out travel insurance, as detailed below. If a government decides to close national borders to tourists due to Covid-19, we offer to change your travel dates free of charge. If no other date is suitable for you, we can also offer a credit, valid for one year, in the amount of your reservation. That voucher will be valid for reservations at the original property or any of our roughly 20 apartments, for whatever dates work best for you. If a quarantine is required but travel is not strictly limited, we consider the reservation to be taking place as planned.
Cancellation by Highstay
If we were to be obligated to cancel your reservation for any reason, including but not limited to lack of availability of a property or a change in health conditions, we will notify you as quickly as possible and will offer you an equivalent stay or a change in dates, free of charge. If no satisfactory alternative is possible, we will refund your reservation in full.
Travel credits
Highstay travel credits are issued only under extraordinary circumstances. They allow Clients to reserve a stay at any of our properties, at a later date than the original trip. If you wish to cancel a reservation made using travel credits, you will receive another travel credit subject to the same terms as the original voucher but with a specific expiration date. The terms of cancellation for the original reservation remain unchanged. All Highstay travel credits are valid for one year. Travel credits may be transferred to individuals over 25 years of age.
Travel insurance
We strongly advise all Clients to take out a comprehensive travel insurance policy covering any and all unforeseen circumstances that could disrupt their trip. Highstay does not offer insurance directly, but feel free to contact us if you need a travel receipt to file a claim with your insurer. We recommend checking that your insurance covers the following situations: If a traveler tests positive for Covid-19 If a traveler is required to isolate himself/herself and cannot travel If the government advises against or prohibits travel to the destination If the destination country's borders are not open to tourists If a quarantine is required at the destination Repatriation costs
Frequently asked questions
Can I cancel my reservation? How do I cancel my reservation? Before canceling your reservation, make sure you have read and understood the cancellation policy that applies in your case. You will find all the details in the confirmation email that was sent to you upon reservation. To cancel without a penalty, be sure to meet the deadline specified for each policy. To cancel a reservation, contact our customer service team at +33 1 75 77 19 77 or send an email to contact@highstay.com. Please note that your reservation is not considered to have been canceled until you receive an email confirmation from us. How long does it take to receive a refund? Refunds may take up to 14 days, depending on your bank. Refunds are made to the credit card used to make the reservation. You will receive a refund confirmation once the transaction has been made. Can I change the dates on my current reservation? Yes, that is possible. To change your existing reservation, contact our customer service team so that we can check the availability of the property for your new dates. If the property in question is unavailable, we will do all we can to offer you a Highstay alternative. Finally, in the event of total unavailability, your original reservation will remain unchanged. Why should I take out travel insurance? Despite all our efforts to adapt to the continuing changes in government restrictions and the global health situation, we are not in a position to offer you total flexibility. Without insurance, if you need to cancel your reservation due to a positive test or extend your stay in order to comply with lockdown or quarantine requirements, you will be responsible for all the associated costs. However, some insurance policies reimburse you for cancellation fees, extended hotel stays, or repatriation. Will I need to pay an additional fee if I change my travel dates? That depends! Our rates change during the year to reflect holiday periods and fluctuations in demand. If the property's rate is higher for your new travel dates than when you originally reserved, you will need to pay the difference. Our customer service team will help you make the changes as needed. Can I transfer my reservation or my travel credits to someone else? Absolutely! To transfer your reservation or your Highstay credits to another traveler, contact our customer service team. You will need to provide all the required information about the new reservation holder. Please note that reservations can be transferred only to a person who is over 25 years of age. What happens if one of my travel companions or I test positive for Covid-19? Contact our customer service team as soon as possible to let us know and either cancel your reservation or change the dates of your stay. Please refer to the terms and conditions for the cancellation policy you selected (standard or flexible) to find out whether you can cancel at no cost. We always strongly encourage you to take out travel insurance to provide for this type of circumstance. What happens if a quarantine is required upon arrival in the destination country? If local authorities have not placed any other limitations on travel, we consider a quarantine requirement not to be a case of force majeure. The reservation will therefore take place as planned. Make sure your insurance covers the cost of any cancellation or extension of your stay. Where can I view the cancellation policy that applies to my reservation? You will find all the information on the various cancellation policies on this page or in your reservation confirmation email. I want to change or cancel my reservation. How long in advance do I need to give notice to Highstay? To avoid paying penalties, keep the cancellation deadlines in mind. If you chose the standard cancellation policy, you must notify us of your cancellation more than 7 days before your arrival date to avoid paying for your reservation in full, or at least 48 hours in advance for the flexible cancellation policy. Whom do I contact to change my reservation? Our customer service team is always happy to help you! You can contact us any time via email at contact@highstay.com or by calling + 33 1 75 77 19 77. If you didn't book on our website, www.highstay.com, we recommend contacting the third-party provider you booked through to find out about their cancellation policy.
