This Agreement shall be interpreted and enforced according to the laws of the State of South Carolina.
The invalidity or unenforceability of anyone or more provisions of this Agreement shall in no way affect
any other provisions. This Agreement may not be transferred or assigned.

The property is privately owned with Carolina One Vacation Rentals acting solely as AGENT for the
OWNER. The GUEST acknowledges he is a licensee of the OWNER and not a tenant and is not acquiring
any interest in the property. Properties reflect the owner's personal style in furnishings and decor.

A rental deposit of 50% of the total price is due on the date that the reservation is made. The balance is
due to be paid in full sixty (60) days prior to GUEST check-in date. Reservations made less than sixty (60)
days prior to the arrival date must be paid in full at the time of booking. We accept MasterCard, VISA,
Discover Card and American Express as forms of credit card payment. Other forms of acceptable
payment include checks and money orders payable to the AGENT. A $50.00 returned check fee would be
assessed to the reservation if a GUEST'S check should be returned for any reason. Should the AGENT not
receive the final balance by this due date, the GUEST authorizes the AGENT to automatically charge the
balance due on the reservation to the GUEST’s credit card on file on the balance due date. Regardless of
payment method used, a valid credit card must be submitted to be kept on file for incidentals. GUEST
authorizes Carolina One Vacation Rentals to place payments in an interest-bearing account in an insured
South Carolina bank and understands that the interest earned shall be retained by Carolina One Vacation

cancel penalty free. GUEST cancellations submitted within sixty (60) days and outside of thirty (30) days
of the reservation arrival date are subject to a cancellation fee of 50% of the total reservation cost.
GUEST cancellations submitted within thirty (30) days of the reservation arrival date would result in the
forfeiture of all payments made unless the property is re-rented and confirmed at the same rate for each
night of the canceled dates. Refunds of re-rented nights will not be determined until after the departure
date of the original reservation. In the event of re-rental, a cancellation fee of 10% of the full amount of
the initial rental will be assessed. Changing a confirmed reservation in any way within sixty (60) days of
arrival, such as changes to arrival dates, departure dates, or property address are considered a

case-by-case basis. Reservations made through third party booking sites may be subject to a different
cancellation policy declared to GUEST prior to or upon booking online. Purchasing travel insurance for
your reservation is strongly recommended in order to have the best chance for a refund due to
unforeseen circumstances.

It is strongly recommended that you purchase travel insurance to protect against unforeseen
occurrences that may result in loss of rental. Travel insurance protects you from losses you may incur
because of unforeseen circumstances, such as illness, injuries, or Acts of God such as mandatory
hurricane evacuations, and the like. There are 2 options you may choose from for travel insurance that
we offer through Rental Guardian Play Travel Protection. Standard Travel Insurance must be purchased
before 60 days prior to GUEST's arrival date or by final payment, whichever comes first, for 7% of the trip
cost. Cancel For Any Reason Travel Insurance must be purchased within 15 days of initial booking for
10.8% of the trip cost. New reservations to arrive within 30-45 days, may purchase the insurance at the
time of booking only. Travel insurance is non-refundable after purchase. We recommend that you
purchase this travel insurance. Please refer specific policy and coverage questions to 888-885-5550,, or visit their website at

descriptions rarely occur and GUEST will be notified in any event of error. If in the opinion of AGENT, the
error substantially changes the terms of this Agreement, GUEST may cancel the reservation within three
(3) business days after receiving such notification and GUEST will receive a full refund. We reserve the
right to make corrections, additions, deletions, and changes in the rates and descriptions at any time
without notice. Should the accommodation become unavailable due to reasons beyond control, AGENT
will provide alternative accommodation if available, and will notify GUEST of the alternate property
options available. Should the guest deem the alternate properties unacceptable, a full refund of the
deposits paid will be returned to GUEST. Taxes and fees may not be included in the quoted rates.
