Any damages that exceed the policy limits or are not covered under the plan will be charged to the credit card on file. If, during your stay at one of our rental properties, an insured person causes any damage to real or personal property of the unit as a result of inadvertent acts or omissions, the Insurer will reimburse the Insured for the cost of repair or replacement of such property up to a maximum benefit of $1500 in units up to 3 bedrooms and $3000 in units 4 bedrooms or larger. Certain terms and conditions apply. Vacation Rental Damage Protection is brought to you by CSA Travel Protection and Meyer Vacation Rentals and is underwritten by Generali US Branch. Full details of the Vacation Rental Damage coverage are contained in the Description of Coverage or Insurance Policy VacationRentalInsurance.com/g20vrd. By submitting payment for this plan, you authorize and request CSA Travel Protection and Insurance Services to pay directly Meyer Vacation Rentals any amount payable under the terms and conditions of the Vacation Rental Damage. If you do not wish to purchase the Vacation Rental Damage Protection, you may instead add a $1500 damage deposit in units up to 3 bedrooms and a $3000 damage deposit in units 4 bedrooms or larger.
