Special cancellation clause for Covid-19 – change of period or guaranteed refund. 

As an exception to the general rental conditions (and with particular reference to Clause 5 / Cancellations by you) if it is not possible to make use of the booked stay due to measures issued by public authorities related to the Covid-19 health emergency (e.g. lockdown, closure of borders, tourist/non-essential travel restrictions, quarantine obligation, etc.) iLODGE will grant the possibility to change the booking period or, alternatively, refund the full amount already paid for the rental (without applying any penalty). 

Important: This special clause does not apply to measures already in place at time of booking or other cases (even if linked to the Covid-19 emergency) such as: closed restaurants, curfew, flight cancellation, customer illness (including Covid).Many of these cases are or can be covered with a suitable 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. 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.
