Member Balance Redemption

Redemptions in the form of a bank check, bank ACH, and international wire transfer will only be issued in the name and address of Traveler #1 ("Member").

Gift Refunds

No refunds will be immediately possible upon completion of the gift giving process. LH has sole discretion to determine the validity of a refund request based on an error in the gift amount or receiving member name.

If LH decides to refund and the money is still in the members account, LH will deduct the amount in dispute plus a $25 chargeback fee. If the money is no longer available LH may withhold monies from future gifts received to cover these costs.

Basically

Getting your money back may take some time if you make a mistake

Wedding postponed or cancelled

In the event of a change of date, it is the member's responsibility to update the information in their registry profile. In the event of a cancellation, the policy would be to return all gifts to the givers. Please contact greatservice@losthotels.com for assistance.

Basically:

It's not the end of the world if plans change.
