Coronavirus resource guide for our vacation rental guests

Updates on our response to COVID-19

Last updated: March 1, 2021

At Vacasa, the health and safety of our guests, homeowners, and employees is our number one priority. To protect against the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), our support systems are more important than ever—and we know it's important to keep you in the loop as you book and prepare for upcoming travel. We'll update this page as new information becomes available about policies, procedures, and travel advisories.


Changing or cancelling an upcoming trip

While our mission is to provide guests with exceptional vacation experiences, we understand that many other important factors might affect your decision about where and when you travel.

We’re offering simple, flexible change and cancellation policies (including options with no extra fees).

Learn about our cancellation policy >


Need to cancel?
Your quickest option is to cancel your trip online and receive 100% of the cost as a Future Stay Credit. As long as your check-in date is at least 7 days away, you can claim your credit in less than a minute and use it on a new Vacasa stay when you're ready to travel.

Cancel and receive a Future Stay Credit >

You can also log in to your Trip Manager to see cancellation options for your specific reservation.


If Vacasa cancels

If Vacasa cancels your reservation because the property you reserved is unavailable (for example, in compliance with a government closure order) and we are not able to accommodate you in a comparable property, you will be given the option to receive a full refund.


Our professional housekeeping

Our professional, local teams are committed to providing clean and safe homes for our guests each and every stay. On top of our standard cleaning guidelines, we’ve launched an enhanced protocol for vacation rental cleanliness: Vacasa Premium Clean. This new cleaning program meets or exceeds CDC recommendations and guidance from hospitality industry experts.

Learn about Vacasa Premium Clean >

In addition, to minimize person-to-person contact, many of our homes are equipped with smart locks or lockboxes, letting you check in and check out without interfacing with staff.


Here for you

Our thoughts are with you during this time, and we want to do our best to support you.

Our Customer Experience team is prepared to answer your questions and can be reached any time at 888-387-0151 or info@vacasa.com. We advise you to email rather than calling if your reservation is more than 30 days away.
