Hello, and thank you for choosing Fort Morgan Realty.

You will receive confirmation after your payment has been processed. If your arrival date is less than a year in advance, but more than 30 days out, your Initial Reservation Payment due is 30% of the base rent. If arriving in 30 days or less, or if your balance is less than $500 the TOTAL amount shown, then the remaining balance is to be paid in full today.

CANCELLATION:
If you must cancel, change dates, or change properties, please call us (251-540-7325) or email us (fortmorgasales@gmail.com) as soon as possible. If you choose NOT to purchase trip insurance, no refunds will be issued inside the cancellation date range for any reason, including illness, hurricanes, and other similar events.

Initial Reservation Payment:
Your initial reservation payment applies to your rent upon arrival.

Upon processing your Initial Reservation Payment, you will receive written confirmation. This must be paid in full to continue the reservation of your unit.

By following through with the online reservation process, your agreement to terms and conditions is applied and assumed. Contact us immediately if you have any questions about any information contained in your confirmation.

This includes leaving the property reasonably clean and orderly upon departure, leaving kitchen items clean, disposing of all trash in proper outside containers, locking all windows and doors, and leaving beds unmade with linens on the floor.
