If you have a non-refundable rate and have already paid, cancellation is unfortunately not possible.If you have made a reservation through a booking channel (Expedia, Booking.com etc) you have to communicate your modification or cancellation through the certain channel. We also apply flexible conditions there, but you can always check the right policies with the relevant booking channel.
