- Insurance: We strongly recommended you arrange comprehensive Travel Insurance at the time of booking to insure each traveller against illness (including evacuation costs), injury, death, loss of baggage and personal items, cancellations, pandemics, volcanic eruptions and their ash clouds and other contingencies. Please don’t wait until the day before you leave on holidays…and please don’t rely on your credit card travel insurance as that invariably is not always a comprehensive travel insurance policy.
- Travel Insurance does not cost more if you buy a policy several months in advance & by buying it at the same time you purchase your travel means you are covered for instances that negate you getting to your destination. Please make sure you either read the fine print or speak to a representative of the company you are buying the travel insurance off of to make sure you are covered.
- We have done a blog piece on Travel Insurance Tips For Overseas Travel that may be of assistance.
- Payment of monies to 353 Degrees North confirms that you have read and agreed to the Terms and Conditions as outlined above.
Thank you for choosing to stay at 353 Degrees North,
Jodie Cooper – 353°N Villa Owner
CORONAVIRUS AFFECTED BOOKINGS (New and Existing):
If you have to cancel your trip to Bali/Nusa Lembongan, we will supply you with the necessary paperwork to file a claim on your travel insurance.
Unfortunately, as some guests are finding out, some travel insurance policies say “pandemics” are not covered…even if bought before the Coronavirus became a “known event” in late January!!
So, if your travel insurance policy DOES NOT protect you please know we will convert your booking into a credit note to the value of your monies paid which you can then use to rebook at 353 Degrees North at a later date.
Where applicable this supersedes our normal cancellation policy.
Ultimately, we really just love sharing our villa and beautiful island with guests and don’t want the fine print of a travel insurance policy to get in the way of you experiencing that.
This is an unprecedented and crazy situation which probably is going to get worse before it gets better.
But it’s also one we will get through together as long as we make decisions that benefit the “we” and not “me”.
We look forward to hearing from you and in the meantime stay safe and we wish good health to you and your loved ones.
