When a guest makes a reservation for a stay at Kismet Inn, we request a deposit of 50% by check, visa or mastercard. The check must be received within one week in order for us to hold the room. If a reservation must be cancelled, that it is done so at least twenty-one days prior to the arrival date. The full amount minus $25 for handling is sent back to the guest. With Credit card payments 15% of the total is charged for non-U.S cards, 10% on U.S cards.
However, if a guest cancels a reservation less than twenty- one days prior to the arrival date, and we are unable to re-book the cancelled room, we will retain the check for the required deposit of one night’s accommodation inclusive of room tax. When guests reserve for a three day holiday weekend, should guests cancel the reservation, less than twenty-one days prior to the arrival date, and we are unable to rebook the room, the guest will not receive back the deposit for the three nights accommodation inclusive of room tax. For early departures guests are responsible for the remaining nights accommodation and tax.
