Breakaway Customer/Traveler Questions

Look for the paw sign on the rental listing. It is a pet friendly unit if the symbol is there. Naturally, some rules apply. These are the basic ground rules — some owners may have others, such as parts of the property from which the pet must be excluded. Most of these rules are just plain common sense; some have evolved from lessons learned the hard way.

Rates will vary depending on the unit type, location, and time of year. Look for the rate symbol and click on it to view the rate schedule. We will confirm these rates to you once we receive your booking inquiry and requested travel dates.

Should you be forced to cancel a confirmed booking which begins more than 45 days from the current date, a cancellation fee of $250.00 CAD plus 12% HST is due to Breakaway. If the booking you cancel begins less than 45 days from the current date, you are liable for the full amount of the rent, fees and taxes. If Breakaway is able to find another Guest to assume all or part of your booking, monies paid by you will be refunded on a dollar for dollar recovered basis, less a cancellation fee of $250.00 CAD plus HST.

Should the property owner be unable to confirm or forced to cancel a confirmed booking, we advise you immediately and try to assist you in finding another suitable property. If another suitable property is not available, we immediately refund all money you have paid, and all agreements between us for the booking in question become null and void.

Please note that some owners have more restrictive cancellation policies. Please read the information on your rental contract pages carefully. We recommend that you consult your homeowner policy or the perks offered by your gold or platinum VISA card to determine whether or not you already have cancellation coverage in place. Failing that, your insurance agent should be able to offer you a policy at competitive prices.

Most of our Vancouver properties are within walking distance or a very short drive or bus ride to a number of popular restaurants. Some of our properties on the Gulf Islands are a bit further away, but there are restaurants in the area.
