RESERVATIONS AND PAYMENTS:
All Accommodation providers have different policies. Your policy will be confirmed to you at the point of reservation and reiterated in an emailed confirmation. As Whistler Central Reservations, we create discount packages from various suppliers of services and products. In accepting these terms and conditions, you agree to allow Whistler Reservations to release your Credit Card details to our trusted 3rd party suppliers of your chosen package.
Unless otherwise confirmed, an initial non-refundable deposit equivalent to one nights room + Tax is required to confirm a reservation. Some vendors require a larger deposit during peak or holiday times. No travel services will be booked or confirmed without receipt of deposit unless otherwise informed. At certain times, certain vendors offer a discounted rate that requires full and final payment with no refund if cancelled.
Final Payment is normally due 30-45 days prior to arrival unless confirmed. For reservations made within 30 days of travel, full payment is required at the time of booking and is nonrefundable unless otherwise confirmed at the point of sale.
Whistler Reservations cannot guarantee any reservations not paid on time. In some instances, Whistler Reservations is required to release rooms back to the supplier when not paid on time. In these instances, Whistler Reservations will make every effort to re-acquire space, however, the customer is required to pay any late booking fees incurred by Whistler Reservations plus a $75.00 rebooking fee.
The land portion of the trip.
Whistler Reservations must receive all cancellations in writing. For cancellations outside of 30 days of arrival, whistler reservations will charge an additional administration fee of $75 + Taxes. Depending on the Property booked and the terms, you may forfeit your deposit at the time of reservation. If your trip is cancelled within 30 days of arrival, the client will forfeit the entire monetary amount of the booking, unless agreed at point of sale and stated in the terms and conditions. Certain partners of ours require a deposit equal to one night’s stay, which will be nonrefundable at the time of booking. All Activity terms and conditions will apply as stated at point of sale and are governed by the vendor of the activity.
PRE-PAID DEALS. Certain vendors offer a discounted rate that requires full and final payment with no refund or changes allowed from point of reservation. You will be notified in your reservation confirmation of all rules that apply to your individual booking.

All golfers must check-in at least 30 minutes prior to tee time. Tee times missed due to late check-in or weather-related issues will be handled on an individual basis by each course and are not the responsibility of Whistler Reservations. Once play begins, Whistler Reservations will provide no refunds for any reason. No cash refunds will be issued for rain checks obtained at any golf course. Rain does not constitute cancellation of play unless the golf course officially closes. Whistler Reservations will not be responsible for lost or cancelled tee times as a result of air flight delays, war, or acts of God. All golf courses require proper attire (e.g. collared shirts & tailored shorts-no t-shirts, cutoffs or jeans, or similar).

It is the sole responsibility of the individual booking party to ensure that all lead members of the party are the required age as detailed or have special permission in writing from Whistler Reservations prior to their visit that they are able to stay in their specific chosen accommodation or complete their reserved activity. It must be advised that certain Hotels and Activity providers will allow lead guests from the age of 19 as long as they hold a Credit Card for a pre Authorised Deposit to be taken at check-in.

Right of withdrawal
Unless exceptions apply, the User may be eligible to withdraw from the contract within the period specified below (generally 14 days), for any reason and without justification. Users can learn more about the withdrawal conditions within this section.
Who the right of withdrawal applies to
Unless any applicable exception is mentioned below, Users who are European Consumers are granted a statutory cancellation right under EU rules, to withdraw from contracts entered into online (distance contracts) within the specified period applicable to their case, for any reason and without justification.
Users that do not fit this qualification, cannot benefit from the rights described in this section.
Exercising the right of withdrawal
To exercise their right of withdrawal, Users must send to the Owner an unequivocal statement of their intention to withdraw from the contract.
To this end, Users may use the model withdrawal form available from within the “definitions” section of this document. Users are, however, free to express their intention to withdraw from the contract by making an unequivocal statement in any other suitable way. In order to meet the deadline within which they can exercise such right, Users must send the withdrawal notice before the withdrawal period expires.
When does the withdrawal period expire?
- Regarding the purchase of a service, the withdrawal period expires 14 days after the day that the contract is entered into unless the User has waived the withdrawal right.
Effects of withdrawal
Users who correctly withdraw from a contract will be reimbursed by the Owner for all payments made to the Owner, including, if any, those covering the costs of delivery.
However, any additional costs resulting from the choice of a particular delivery method other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by the Owner, will not be reimbursed.
Such reimbursement shall be made without undue delay and, in any event, no later than 14 days from the day on which the Owner is informed of the User’s decision to withdraw from the contract. Unless otherwise agreed with the User, reimbursements will be made using the same means of payment as used to process the initial transaction. In any event, the User shall not incur any costs or fees as a result of such reimbursement.
…on the purchase of services
Where a User exercises the right of withdrawal after having requested that the service be performed before the withdrawal period expires, the User shall pay to the Owner an amount which is in proportion to the part of service provided.
Such payment shall be calculated based on the fee contractually agreed upon, and be proportional to the part of service provided until the time the User withdraws, compared with the full coverage of the contract.
The Owner grants Users a contractual best-price-guarantee. If after purchasing any of the Products available on whistlerreservations.com they retrieve the exact same Product with the exact same specifications and conditions at a lower price from another Provider, the Owner will refund the difference upon presentation of appropriate evidence.
The best-price-guarantee is subject to the following conditions:
- Users have purchased a Product from the Owner;
- On the same day, after having purchased the Product from the Owner, Users find the same product available for purchase at a lower price from a different online provider;
- The product’s specifications and characteristics, such as quantity, time, territorial scope, purpose, brand, etc. are identical to the Product purchased from the Owner;
- The purchase price of the aforementioned product is lower than that of the Product purchased from the Owner. To this end, any personal price reduction resulting from a Coupon or discount code of Users as well as any temporary price reduction, such as in case of a sales, shall not be considered, i.e. the purchase price must already be lower before any such reduction is applied.
In order to claim the best-price-guarantee Users must:
- Store screenshots of and link to the lower-priced offer, making sure that all relevant product specifications and characteristics, date, and time are visible on such screenshots, as well as under such links. Users must also save a screenshot of the last page before purchase confirmation;
- Submit the aforementioned information to the Owner alongside their full purchase reference relating to the Product purchased from the Owner (such as name, last name, address, email address, booking or order no. etc.) within the same day.
The Owner shall then verify that all best-price-guarantee conditions and requirements are fulfilled and, if so, refund the difference between the price paid to the Owner and the lower price of the other provider’s offer.
Liability and indemnification
The User agrees to indemnify and hold the Owner and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, agents, co-branders, partners and employees harmless from and against any claim or demand — including but not limited to lawyer’s fees and costs — made by any third party due to or in relation with any culpable use of or connection to the Service, violation of these Terms, infringement of any third-party rights or statutory provision by the User or its affiliates, officers, directors, agents, co-branders, partners and employees to the extent allowed by applicable law.
Limitation of liability
Unless otherwise explicitly stated and without prejudice to applicable statutory product liability provisions, Users shall have no right to claim damages against the Owner (or any natural or legal person acting on its behalf).
This does not apply to damages to life, health or physical integrity, damages resulting from the breach of an essential contractual obligation such as any obligation strictly necessary to achieve the purpose of the contract, and/or damages resulting from intent or gross negligence, as long as whistlerreservations.com has been appropriately and correctly used by the User.
Unless damages have been caused by way of intent or gross negligence, or they affect life, health or physical integrity, the Owner shall only be liable to the extent of typical and foreseeable damages at the moment the contract was entered into.
