During these difficult times, a lot of us have had to cancel plans, buckle down and wait out whatever each day throws at us. For some, that means working from home and social distancing, for others it means canceling much-awaited holidays, and even running into issues when trying to return home. It's safe to say that all across the globe, we're all a little stressed and looking for ways to perk up - and while it may seem counterintuitive at this point, booking your next holiday can be a great way to work towards the future and have a positive event to look forward to when it feels like the world is collapsing.
And we don't want to be tone-deaf here: restrictions and travel advisories surrounding COVID-19 are not a joke. We here at Vacation Niseko support the rules that governmental and travel authorities have implemented in an attempt to contain the virus, but we also sympathise with those who had to cancel their stays this season and those who were hoping to visit us next season. We are working hard to reduce the burden that COVID-19 has placed on guests, and want to help everyone get the most out of their Niseko holidays.
We have been issuing credits to those who could not claim their canceled stays on travel insurance (which we always recommend purchasing) and we have also implemented a relaxed cancellation policy for those booking holidays for next season so canceling is easy and painless if COVID-19 does not get better in the coming months.
With all that said and done, let us outline why it's a good idea to book your Winter holiday with Vacation Niseko for next season - because there's no better way to lift the spirits than to secure your spot in one of the best powder destinations in the world for next Winter!
For stays booked between March 19th and June 30th, 2020 - you can book completely risk free. Usually, once we take the 20% accommodation deposit upon confirmation, it is non-refundable, but we understand that 2020 is a particularly risky time to lock in a holiday without any flexibility. So if you feel the need to cancel for any reason before July 1st, we will refund your deposit no problem.
Cancellation penalties for 20/21 bookings:
|March 19th - June 30th, 2020||0% of total booking cost|
|June 30th, 2020 - 60 days prior to arrival in Niseko||20% of total booking cost|
|Within 60 days of arrival in Niseko||100% of total booking cost|

While most other agents may require more upfront, we only need 20% of the accommodation cost to secure a booking. We understand things can change as your holiday planning moves along and often it's difficult to put down a large sum of money in the beginning - so with our low upfront cost and relaxed cancellation policy for this season, there's even less risk when booking your trip.
Our staff live and breathe the Niseko life - whether it's checking out the newest places to eat and drink, finding the best powder spots or getting the local's perspective on Niseko, you can utilise our local knowledge when planning your holiday package and receive great advice while you're here. Our office is also based right here in the village, so you can trust that we're in the know when it comes to all things Niseko.
Aside from flights, we can arrange almost anything you need to make your Winter holiday an unforgettable one - airport transfers, equipment rentals, ski school lessons, private chefs... you name it, we can probably make it happen!
