additional fee. The fee will be discussed at the time of

children in the same room. For your information, the
additional night is usually $99 and children rates may
be as low as $10 per person. Remember, the offer is for
room rate only. Holiday, peak season and weekend
surcharges apply. Tax and resort fees, if applicable,
are the responsibility of the traveler. The taxes will
vary according to your destination--but usually run
$10-15 per night.
Arrival date must be a minimum of 30 (we suggest at
least 45 days) and a maximum of 60
days in advance. The more advance time you provide us,
the better the hotel availability. There may be certain

on your desired dates of travel. Getaway always prefers
at least 2 choices of dates and destinations.
