Book with Confidence - Cancellation Policy for Destin Vacation Rentals


Like much of the country, we are ready to resume life and embrace the new norm. Guest and staff safety is a top priority for the team at Newman-Dailey. Our beaches are open and we are ready to help families plan a safe and much-needed beach vacation with confidence. 

Private, professionally managed vacation rental homes and condominiums are a great choice to practice social distancing and enjoy time with loved ones in a clean, safe environment. 

While there are many variables as we transition to new norms, we want our guests to book their beach vacation with confidence. Newman-Dailey's current policies for rescheduling or canceling a reservation in a Newman-Dailey Resort Properties professionally managed vacation rental are below. These policies are for direct bookings through Newman-Dailey. Excludes reservations made through Airbnb, VRBO, and other third-party booking websites as well as monthly winter rentals.

Up to 15 days prior to arrival:

  • Deferred final payment: Due 15 days prior to arrival.
  • Reschedule: Reschedule your visit for a future date up to one year from your original arrival date. Published rates for the new date of stay/new property apply. (Once reservations are within 15 days of arrival, our normal cancellation policy is in effect and refunds will not be issued.)  
  • 100% Credit: Receive 100% credit for payments made on existing reservations. A gift certificate will be used and may be used up to one year from the original arrival date.
  • Travel Insurance: Purchase Travel Insurance with Red Sky and protect your vacation in case someone in your travel party becomes ill. File a claim with Red Sky Travel Insurance if you need to cancel for any reason as outlined in the Sun Preserver policy.
  • Re-rent the Vacation Rental: As the last option, our team can try to re-rent the vacation rental to another guest during your booked dates of stay. If we are able to book a new guest, you can receive a refund for any nights re-rented less a $75 processing fee for your cancelled reservation.

Within 15 days of arrival:

  • Our normal cancellation policy is in effect.
  • Refunds will not be issued.
  • For those who have purchased travel insurance, legitimate claims may be filed with Red Sky Travel Insurance for a refund.
  • Re-rent the Vacation Rental: While there is no guarantee our team will be successful, we are happy to try to rent the vacation rental to another guest during your scheduled dates of stay. If our team is successful, you will receive a refund of the amount paid for any nights re-rented less a $75 processing fee.
