Cancellations – Reservation Deposit
The “Reservation Deposit” is a deposit required to confirm and hold a motorhome rental reservation with Great Alaskan Holidays, Inc. The Reservation Deposit is subject to cancellations fees as outlined in the Terms of Agreement. At pickup, the Reservation Deposit will be contributed to your reservation as a pre-payment of your rental fees. The Reservation Deposit is a minimum of $500 and may be higher depending on your specific reservation dates and pricing.
