Travel Insurance -
Dinner Plain Accommodation recommends guests purchase Travel Insurance, which is generally inexpensive, but can really save a lot of emotional distress if an unforeseen event occurs. We recommend your travel insurance will cover you for airline flight and accommodation cancellation. We also recommend you are covered for accident, illness, medical evacuation and theft.

The property that you have reserved may become unavailable due to circumstances beyond the control of Dinner Plain Accommodation. In such instances, Dinner Plain Accommodation will endeavour to place you in alternative accommodation, however, is unable to provide any guarantees in terms of the availability and facilities of the substitute accommodation.
Equipment and Facilities provided at properties -
If equipment and or facilities fail, Dinner Plain Accommodation will endeavour to get it back in working order as soon as possible/practical; no refunds or compensation will be paid for any such breakdowns.
As certain utensils and appliances are not standard across all of our properties, should you require specific items such as a coffee plunger, baking tray, egg rings/cups, hairdryer, etc. we strongly recommend that you bring your own to avoid disappointment. Fire Lighters are also a great idea, to help you quickly start a wood fire.
We understand that circumstances may arise where you need to cancel your reservation. Should this occur, all booking cancellations must be notified in writing to Dinner Plain Accommodation, and the following cancellation fees will apply:
Cancellations made between 0 and 40 days of the arrival date, no refund is applicable, unless the chalet/apartment is rebooked, in this instance a partial refund may be available
