No Cancelation - Never Stay Here!
I had booked a trip from the USA to NZ. I was pretty excited and then came Covid. I had to cancel a number of hotel rooms and AirBNB’s. All provided full refunds because I couldn’t travel to NZ - all except Fox Glacier. Not allowed to cancel - no refund. I will be traveling to NZ in about a year and there is NO WAY I will stay here
