  • What types of payments do you accept?

    Credit Cards: We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express credit cards. We also accept debit cards with symbols of these card companies.

  • My discount code isn’t working!

    Not every code will be applicable to every single reservation. Please read the terms of the discount code you are attempting to use carefully, and note that some codes provided by third parties may have expired.
