Updates Concerning the Topsail Area, Lewis Realty and the Coronavirus
There are some optional fees that may be associated with your reservation:
Reservation Fee (required):
This fee is applied to all reservations and is taxable. This fee covers the following: (1) Administrative costs associated with the reservation,(2) Accidental Damage Protection and (3) Expenses incurred to service the property during your stay.
Travel Insurance Options (Optional but HIGHLY RECOMMENDED):
Lewis Realty has partnered with RentalGuardian.com and InsureStays to help safeguard your entire booking deposit and other prepaid non-refundable payments related to planned travel. We strongly encourage you to purchase optional travel insurance.
Travel Insurance covers risks incidental to planned travel such as sickness, accidental injury, or death of you or a family member (or of a traveling companion), weather delays, natural disasters, unexpected changes in your employment, and many more specific reasons.
Option # 1 - Play Travel Protection - Standard
Standard Travel insurance can be added to your reservation total up to 30 days prior to check in, or before you make your final payment on the reservation, whichever comes first.
The cost of the Standard Travel Insurance plan is 7% of your total reservation invoice amount. The premium charged for travel insurance is non-refundable after 15 days of coverage purchase.
Option # 2 - Play Travel Protection - with Cancel for Any Reason Benefit
In addition to the standard travel insurance option listed above, guests have the option to purchase a deluxe travel insurance policy which includes the Cancel For Any Reason benefit. The CFar policy protects guests in the event of cancellations that are not covered by the standard insurance plan. The CFAR will pay up to 60% of pre-paid non-refundable charges should your cancellation reason not be covered by the standard travel insurance. The cost of the standard travel insurance coverage with CFAR benefits is 9.8% of your total reservation invoice amount. The premium charged for travel insurance is non-refundable after 15 days of coverage purchase.
This plan must be added to your reservation within 15 days from booking. After 15 days from booking it will no longer be available but you can still purchase the standard travel insurance plan.
**CFAR Benefits are NOT available to residents of New York, New Hampshire, or Washington.
For policy coverage questions please call Insurestays Customer Service at 833-610-0736
Guests opting not to purchase travel insurance should be aware that our standard cancellation policy will apply to all reservations per the terms and conditions of our rental agreement, therefore, your entire booking payment could be at risk in the event you do not purchase travel insurance protection.
NOTE: The NC Vacation Rental Act states that if travel insurance is offered, whether purchased or declined, the rental agency is under no obligation to make any refund due to a weather event or mandatory evacuation.
Per our vacation rental agreement no refund will be issued by Lewis Realty and guests who purchase travel insurance will need to work with the insurance company directly to file a claim for reimbursement.
Linens are not provided with any of our rental properties. Linens can be added to your reservation. Contact your reservationist today for pricing information or visit our Rental Items page for more information.
**Pet Fee (removable):
This fee automatically applies to all pet-friendly property reservations.
If you do not intend to bring a pet, then the pet fee can be removed from the reservation.
Pet fees are charged per pet accompanying you. If you have more than one pet please let our rental staff know.
Pet Fees are non-refundable, and are taxable.
Not all properties are pet friendly, please check the property description to clarify.
PLEASE NOTE: Lewis Realty is not responsible for any additional fees charged by 3rd party sites such as Homeaway.com or VRBO. These sites charge their own separate service fee for booking your reservation through their site.
