Can we depart earlier than scheduled if something comes up?

You are welcome to leave early; however, early departures are considered cancellations of nights reserved and are non-refundable. We highly recommend travel insurance to protect against last-minute emergencies. If interested there is a site we are aware of called Insure My Trip where it is possible to get quotes from many insurance providers. Our understanding is they have coverage for delays or cancellations due to weather, peril, job loss, and medical crisis. The policies have added benefits for medical care while away, including medical evacuation. We do not have personal experience with the Insure My Trip website so we cannot personally recommend it.
