Upon confirmation of the reservation, FARNUM & CHRIST will issue an invoice with balance due. Final payment on this invoice must be received at least 60 days prior to the commencement of rental period. Within 60 days final payment is non-refundable. Amount of final payment is subject to exchange rate at time of invoicing. Cancellation insurance is strongly recommended.
