Changes to Existing Registrations
Any changes to any aspect of the rental registration must be made not less than 3-days prior to the arrival date. An “Add-On/Change” link will be included in the email confirmation you receive from the initial rental registration. This link will allow you to:
- Increase the number of occupants (age 6 and up) staying the full duration of the rental
- Add a vehicle – staying the full duration
- Add a guest/guest vehicle – these are not staying full duration
- Swap vehicle information (No Charge)
- NEW – For guest(s) of renters (not staying full duration) and arriving to ALCA without a vehicle, use the “Add Guest – No Vehicle” add-on option. This should only be used for people arriving in rideshare services like Uber where they will not have a vehicle in the community AND not staying the entire length of the rental.
If you need to change arrival and/or departure dates, you must cancel your initial registration and re-register. This is because fees are calculated based on number of days/nights.
Changes still cannot be made less than 3-days prior to arrival. If a renter will have guests during their stay, all guests must be registered. Guests of a renter are considered temporary members and temporary membership and vehicle gate card fees apply.
If you need to decrease the number of occupants, vehicles, or guest vehicles, please contact Rental Services. These changes need to be made not less than 3-days prior to arrival for a refund to be issued.
Please make every effort to have accurate and complete information at the time of registration. Doing so means less time on your end submitting “Add-On” forms and multiple payments per rental registrations.

You can cancel your registration at any time prior to arrival, however, only cancellations submitted not less than three (3) days prior to arrival will be eligible for a refund. Only Temporary Membership fees and Vehicle Gate Card fees are refundable.
