At the time your Reservation is confirmed, we reserve the right to change the assignment to a comparable Rental Property. Should this occur to a confirmed Reservation, every effort will be made to contact you by telephone or e-mail to inform you of the need to change your Reservation to another suitable accommodation. Please be assured you will either be moved to a comparable Rental Property or upgraded, at our discretion, depending on Rental Property availability.
