Deposit and Prepaid Reservations Policies

Deposit and prepaid reservations can be transferred. Tock offers the following policy options for Blueprint or Availability Planning dashboards:


  • Guests cannot cancel through Tock.
  • Guests can cancel through Tock.

Availability Planning

  • Guests can transfer through Tock.
  • Guests can cancel through Tock.
  • Guests can reschedule through Tock.

Recommended Uses

You can set a custom window of time prior to the guest’s reservation to allow them to modify their reservation.

  • Guests can only reschedule within the same Experience. They cannot change Experiences.
  • Cancellations before the modification window are automatically issued refunds for paid reservations.
  • When configuring your modification windows, check your availability window. We recommend having a modification window at least as long as the availability window to be sure your cancellations can be completed.
  • If you are using variable pricing within an Experience, we do not recommend enabling reschedules. A reschedule always respects the price that was purchased.

Events reservations cannot be rescheduled by the guest, but can be transferred. Tock offers the following event cancelation policies:

  • Guests cannot cancel through Tock.
  • Guests can cancel through Tock.
