Cancellation policy for new bookings: Due to the pandemic new cancellation policy is applicable for new bookings. A new booking can therefore be cancelled free of charge until the day of arrival should it not be possible to enter Sicily due to new travel restrictions because of the pandemic. This policy does not apply for cancellations because of flight cancellations if there would be alternative flights, or because of imposed travel warnings by single states while the majority of states keep their boarders open. As there are countless other reasons, for which your travel plans may be interrupted, we strongly recommend taking out a travel insurance.
Sicily4U customer support: We will help you, should your trip be impossible or only partially feasible, to rebook or cancel your bookings at favourable rate by renegotiating depending on the booking and travel situation. We extend payment deadlines if the situation remains uncertain. However, as an agency for holiday homes in Sicily, we are ultimately subject to Italian rental law, which by decree provides for travel vouchers instead of refunds. Important: If you have not taken out travel insurance, as strongly recommended by us under clause 8) in our General Terms and Conditions at the time of booking, please also check the cancellation protection of your card provider (if you have paid by credit card). If the entry restrictions have been lifted and the stay in the booked holiday home is possible, as a rule our General Terms and Conditions accepted at the time of booking apply.
Cleaning of our villas: We guarantee a thorough cleaning and disinfection of our villas, so that you can enjoy a risk-free stay.
Infection Numbers: The total number of actually infected people decreases further. The total number of still infected people of Covid-19 in Sicily amounts to 134. Due to a significant error with the Covid-infection numbers Sicily's previously indicated numbers are no longer valid. Sicily will soon be infection free. 281 people have died since the outbreak of Covid-19. Since several days there have been 1 or 0 infections and no further victims of the virus in Sicily. On the island of Sicily with its 5 million inhabitants more than 190k tests have been made. The boarders to Italy will reopen for travellers from EU and Schengen states by 3rd June without having to self-quarantene. Restrictions for travellers from other countries and overseas will stay in place for now.
