What is "SDI" or "Security Deposit Insurance"? I have never heard of this!
Security Deposit Insurance is a new concept, non-refundable, $39 per RESERVATION, not per day and offers up to $3000 accidental damage insurance in case anything were to happen, spilled red wine on carpet, etc. (just an example) It also means that the guest doesn't fork over $500-$1000 prior to arrival to rent a home as well and no waiting up to 14 to 30 days to get your deposit back. If the home you are renting accepts pets, and you have declared that you are bringing a pet, any pet-related accidents are covered as well. Please see more on this under our Terms & Conditions http://www.alpenglowvacationrentals.com/terms-conditions.asp for a full definition of Security Deposit Insurance.
