I'm wondering if anyone knows what the statute for cancelling a reservation free of charge is in Québec. Every hotel I've ever been to allows for a free cancellation as long as you cancel more than 48 hours in advance. But we booked an inn yesterday, and had to cancel today, more than 48 hours in advance. However they claim there is a $150 cancellation fee when the cancellation is done inside of 7 days.
I've never heard of something like that, and I'm outraged because that's not what they told me on the phone.
Is it legal for a hotel or inn to charge for cancellation outside of 48 hours notice in Québec?
