Our 53rd Season!

Travel Insurance

Most travel experts/consultants agree that Travel Insurance including Trip Cancellation and Interruption Insurance is one of the smartest investments you will ever make. Most base policies cost as little as 5 to 6.5% of the total trip cost & adding a (CFAR) “cancel for any reason” upgrade to the base policy will provide complete piece of mind at approximately 11.50% of the total trip cost.

Travel Insurance Coverage

Travel Insurance including Trip Cancellation and Interruption Insurance may reimburse you if your trip has to be changed or canceled because of:

  • Personal sickness or injury
  • Sickness, injury or death of an immediate family member
  • An act of terrorism
  • Severe/Inclement weather
  • Natural disaster
  • Jury duty
  • Employment Termination

During your trip it may also cover the costs of:

  • Emergency Medical/Dental coverage
  • Emergency medical transportation
  • Baggage loss/damage/theft
  • Travel delay or accident

Health Plans Not Enough

Remember, some health plans don’t cover illnesses or injuries away from your home town. Other health plans will cover expenses, but at a reduced rate. Most health plans do not cover medical transportation to a hospital or your home.

We understand “life” happens and events occur that might prohibit a guest from honoring their reservation commitment with us. No one plans to cancel but often times an unexpected “life” event occurs that creates the necessity to cancel. We remain sympathetic to these events; however our cancellation policy is administered without exception, no matter the “life” event. BECAUSE WE ARE NOT ABLE TO MAKE EXCEPTIONS TO THE CANCELLATION POLICY, REGARDLESS OF REASON OR CIRCUMSTANCE, WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE OUR GUESTS TO INVESTIGATE AN APPROPRIATE POLICY THAT WILL MEET THEIR SPECIFIC INDIVIDUAL CONCERNS AND REQUIREMENTS TO PREVENT DISAPPOINTMENT IN THE EVENT OF AN UNTIMELY NEED TO CANCEL THEIR RESERVATION.

How Ship’s Knees Inn Administers Guest Reservations

Hotels and motels generally over book to compensate for last minute cancellations. Over booking is a part of yield management taught in all leading college level hospitality programs and practiced by virtually every major hotel or motel chain.

Normally, at small inns & bed & breakfasts overbooking is not practiced. At the Ship’s Knees Inn, we never over book. Your room is guaranteed & will be here when you arrive. No exceptions. No excuses. In order to be able to do so the cancellation policy must be designed and administered accordingly. We provide several methods of communication to familiarize guests with our cancellation policy as it is presented on our website, identified in all printed literature, explained at the time of booking when booking by phone, & appears on our “policy page” during the online reservation process with a  “check box” as read and agreed to when booking online, and is provided one final time in our emailed reservation confirmation letter.
