Cancellation Policies and Insurance

We understand that planning in the current environment can be challenging and to help address this Carefree Quechee Vacations has partnered with RentalGuardian.com and InsureStays to help safeguard your travel investment.  Depending on whether you booked on Airbnb, VRBO/Homeaway or directly though Carefree Quechee Vacations cancellation policies on each channel vary slightly.   Travel Insurance plays a key role by offering refunds up to the day of check-in.  Refunds through Rental Guardian vary between 60% and 100% of the trip price dependent upon the policy.

There are two policies offered, standard travel insurance which provides100% refunds for 30 plus reasons for a premium of 7% of your total trip cost and for an additional 2.8% you can add “Cancel for Any Reason” which  provides 60% refund for any reason other than 30 plus reasons in the standard policy. Both options provide a myriad of other protections and benefits that extend throughout you stay.

In today’s environment, we strongly encourage you to consider purchasing optional travel insurance. We recommend Rental Guardian but  there are many competitive products travel insurance on the open market to consider.  Please be aware that almost all products have time based requirements on when you must purchase the insurance.

State of Vermont Regulations

COVID-19 Travel Information for Vermont and Non-Vermont Residents

On April 6, 2021, Governor Phil Scott released the Vermont Forward reopening plan to help Vermonters and local businesses see the path for a phased return to unrestricted travel, business operations, and event gatherings. The plan uses vaccination milestones to ensure a safe easing of restrictions and continued reopening of the state’s economy.

As part of Vermont’s phased reopening plan, there is new travel guidance. Except for international travel, travel no longer requires testing or quarantine.

CDC recommends delaying travel until you are fully vaccinated (defined as 14 days have passed since your final vaccine dose), because travel increases your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19.

Travelers should follow the guidelines of the state or country they visit. These rules may be different state by state or country by country.

VISITORS TO VERMONT

HOSTING VISITORS

Under the current gathering guidelines, hosting visitors is considered a social gathering. Both you and your guests must follow Vermont’s gathering restrictions.

LIMITS ON GATHERING

Vermont has restrictions on social gatherings based on whether you are fully vaccinated or not. You are fully vaccinated 14 days after your final shot. Since children under age 12 cannot get vaccinated at this time, they are considered unvaccinated.

The following limits apply to both social gatherings at a private residence and events at a venue.

For indoor gatherings:
There can be one unvaccinated person per 50 square feet up to 300 unvaccinated people (whichever is less), plus any number of fully vaccinated people. People who are not vaccinated are required to wear a mask in indoor public spaces.

For outdoor gatherings:
There can be 900 unvaccinated people, plus any number of fully vaccinated people.

Read more about quarantining at the Vermont Department of Health website.

All out of state travelers are strongly encouraged to register with Sara Alert upon arrival to Vermont to get two weeks of daily reminders to check for common symptoms of COVID-19.
