If submitting by fax or email, the reservation is NOT guaranteed until full payment is received.  Full Payment means reservations fees AND deposit are collected at the time of reservation to finalize your booking.


It is your responsibility to follow up your form submission with a phone call advising of your payment information during normal business hours.  Your documentation will be held for 24 hours awaiting payment information but your reservation is not confirmed until we have your payment information along with the completed forms.   (so if another reservation form with payment comes in while we are awaiting your payment, the reservation with payment will receive the booking).
