Wits End Vacation Rentals, along with Travel Guard International provides a Security Deposit Protector (SDP) for all two night minimum properties for a non-refundable fee of $49.00. This damage insurance protects you for "accidental damage" to the property or its contents within the unit up to $1500.00. You MUST notify management of any damage or theft before check-out or the SDP is void. It does not cover excessive cleaning of property or hot tubs, any intentional, willful damage or gross negligence. Wits End Vacation Rentals receives a portion of the SDP cost. Refundable Security Damage deposits range from $100.00 to $800.00 depending on the property. Some property owners require the refundable cash deposit instead of the insurance. This must be in the form of cash, money order or cashiers check. You must notify management of any damage or theft before check-out. All tenants should check the property thoroughly upon arrival and notify management of anything not working, broken or left behind.
