U.S. Support Services Inc. Refund Policy
You can cancel your reservation at any time. However, the refund amount is based on the following refund terms. Please inform our office at U.S. Support Services Inc. if you intend to cancel.
If you cancel more than 30 days prior to your scheduled date of stay, U.S. Support Services Inc. will refund 100% of the amount you have deposited. If you notify us of your cancellation within the 30 days leading up to your scheduled date of residence, you will still have to pay the placement fee ($ 270 or $ 300, for dormitory and homestay placements respectively). Additionally, you will still be responsible for the rent you would have paid for the 4 weeks following your date of cancellation, in accordance with California's housing regulations.
For example, if you cancelled on 1/29 – a week before the start of your stay: For a stay application period of 2/1/2020 – 2/15/2020 (i.e. a 2-week period of stay), the initial placement fee and the full 2 weeks of rent would be non-refundable.
However, for a stay application period of 2/1/2020 – 3/7/2020 (i.e. a 5-week period of stay), the placement fee and 3 weeks of rent (2/1/2020 – 2/26/2020) would be non-refundable, but the rent for the last week (2/27/2020 – 3/7/2020) would be refunded.
* In accordance with the laws of California, once you have moved in, the rent for the period of stay will be non-refundable.
In order to receive a refund, you must fill out a refund form within 6 months of notifying us of your cancellation and submit it to U.S. Support Services Inc. We are unable to accept any refund requests submitted over 6 months after the date of cancellation. The money will be refunded within 30 days of the refund form being submitted and processed.
If you cancel the airport transfer service more than 72 hours prior to your arrival at the airport, U.S. Support Services Inc. will refund 100% of the collected charges. Please note that there is no refund for cancellations made within the 72 hours leading up to your arrival at the airport or in the event of a flight change.
*In the event that your arrival time changes (e.g. due to a flight change) and you need to reschedule your airport pickup time, a new airport pickup fee will be applied. Once you move in, you will not be able to cancel the airport transfer service(Drop off), and it will be nonrefundable.
If an application to U.S. Support Services Inc. is being processed by an authorized agent, the processing of the corresponding refund will be subject to the contractual agreement between the agent and client. If you have any further questions, please contact your agent.
