Q:

Fine print says there a $600 cancellation fee. Does that apply if you cancel before booking flight and/or hotel? And, can you check which flights and dates are available before purchasing the coupon?

Melissa Z.  asked on  Jan 29, 2013

A:

Flights are booked at the time of reservation so the $600 per person cancellation penalty applies from the minute your reservation is made. All of the dates for the Groupon promotion are currently available. When a date is full we mark it as sold out so that you can easily see which dates are available for new reservations.
