SUPPLIER RULES AND RESTRICTIONS
Additional terms and conditions will apply to your reservation and purchase of travel-related goods and services that you select. Please read these additional terms and conditions carefully. You agree to abide by the terms and conditions of purchase imposed by any supplier with whom you elect to deal, including, but not limited to, payment of all amounts when due and compliance with the supplier's rules and restrictions regarding availability and use of fares, products, or services. Airfare is only guaranteed once the purchase has been completed and the tickets have been issued. Airlines and other travel suppliers may change their prices without notice. We reserve the right to cancel your booking if full payment is not received in a timely fashion. Some hotel suppliers may require you to present a credit card or cash deposit upon check-in to cover additional expenses incurred during your stay. Such deposit is unrelated to any payment received by us for your hotel booking. You acknowledge that some third-party providers offering certain services and/or activities may require you to sign their liability waiver prior to participating in the service and/or activity they offer. You understand that any violation of any such supplier's rules and restrictions may result in cancellation of your reservation(s), in your being denied access to the applicable travel product or services, in your forfeiting any monies paid for such reservation(s), and/or in our debiting your account for any costs we incur as a result of such violation.

You further grant Travelocity the right to pursue at law any person or entity that violates your or Travelocity’s rights in the Submissions by a breach of these Terms. You acknowledge and agree that Submissions are non-confidential and non-proprietary. We take no responsibility and assume no liability for any Submissions posted or submitted by you. We have no obligation to post your comments; we reserve the right in our absolute discretion to determine which comments are published on the Services. If you do not agree to these Terms, please do not provide us with any Submissions. We shall have the right (but not the obligation) to monitor and review Submissions and any other information transmitted or received through the Services and to censor, edit, remove or prohibit the transmission or receipt of any information or Submissions (in whole or in part) that we deem inappropriate or in violation of these Terms. During monitoring, the Submissions may be examined, recorded or copied, and your use of the Services constitutes your consent to such monitoring and review.
You are fully responsible for the content of your Submissions (including, but not limited to, reviews posted to the Services). You are prohibited from posting or transmitting to or from the Services: (i) any unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, or other material or content that would violate rights of publicity and/or privacy or that would violate any law; (ii) any commercial material or content (including, but not limited to, solicitation of funds, advertising, or marketing of any good or services); (iii) any material or content that infringes, misappropriates or violates any copyright, trademark, patent right or other proprietary right of any third party; and (iv) any material or content that contains a virus, bug or other harmful item.

If you submit more than one review for the same hotel, only your most recent submission is eligible for use.
By providing a Submission, you represent and warrant that: (a) you are the owner of all content contained in your Submission, or have been granted all the rights necessary from the owner thereof to provide such content to Travelocity and for the use by the Travelscape Companies as stated herein; and (b) the use of such content by Travelocity Companies and the Travelscape Companies will not infringe the intellectual property rights of or otherwise violate the rights of any third party.

The Google® Translate tool is made available on the Services to enable you to translate content such as user-generated hotel reviews.

We do not warrant or make any promises, assurances or guarantees as to the accuracy or completeness of the translations provided by Google® Translate.
We reserve the right to terminate or restrict your access to the Services at any time and in our sole discretion. If you have been notified by us that you are prohibited from using the Services, you no longer have a license to access and use the Services and any subsequent access or use by you or on your behalf shall be unauthorized and unlawful. We reserve the right to cancel any and all bookings or other transactions you have made using the Services after you have been prohibited from using the Services, with no liability whatsoever to you.
PREPAID HOTEL RESERVATIONS
You acknowledge that the Travelscape Companies pre-negotiate certain room rates with hotel suppliers to facilitate the booking of reservations on your behalf. You also acknowledge that the Travelscape Companies provide you with services to facilitate such booking of reservations for consideration (the "Facilitation Fee"). The room rate displayed on the Services is a combination of the pre-negotiated room rate for rooms reserved on your behalf by the Travelscape Companies and the Facilitation Fee retained by the Travelscape Companies for their services. You authorize the Travelscape Companies to book reservations for the total reservation price, which includes the room rate displayed on the Services, plus tax recovery charges, service fees, and where applicable, taxes on the Travelscape Companies' services. You agree that your credit card will be charged by the Travelscape Companies for the total reservation price. Upon submitting your reservation request you authorize the Travelscape Companies to facilitate hotel reservations on your behalf, including making payment arrangements with hotel suppliers.
You acknowledge that except as provided below with respect to tax obligations on the amounts we retain for our services, the Travelscape Companies do not collect taxes for remittance to applicable taxing authorities. The tax recovery charges on prepaid hotel transactions are a recovery of the estimated taxes (e.g. sales and use, occupancy, room tax, excise tax, value added tax, etc.) that the Travelscape Companies pay to the hotel supplier for taxes due on the hotel's rental rate for the room. The hotel suppliers invoice the Travelscape Companies for tax amounts. The hotel suppliers are responsible for remitting applicable taxes to the applicable taxing jurisdictions. None of the Travelscape Companies act as co-vendors with the supplier with whom we book or reserve our customer's travel arrangements. Taxability and the appropriate tax rate vary greatly by location. The actual tax amounts paid by the Travelscape Companies to the hotel suppliers may vary from the tax recovery charge amounts, depending upon the rates, taxability, etc. in effect at the time of the actual use of the hotel by our customers. We retain service fees as additional compensation in servicing your travel reservation. Service fees retained by the Travelscape Companies for their services vary based on the amount and type of hotel reservation.
You may cancel or change your prepaid hotel reservation, but you will be charged the cancellation or change fee indicated in the rules and restrictions for the hotel reservation. If you do not cancel or change your reservation before the cancellation policy period applicable to the hotel you reserved, which varies by hotel (usually 24 to 72 hours) prior to your date of arrival, you will be subject to a charge equal to applicable nightly rates, tax recovery charges and service fees. In the event you do not show for the first night of the reservation and plan to check-in for subsequent nights in your reservation, you must confirm the reservation changes with us no later than the date of the first night of the reservation to prevent cancellation of your reservation.
You agree to pay any cancellation or change fees that you incur. In limited cases, some hotels do not permit changes to or cancellations of reservations after they are made, as indicated in the rules and restrictions for the hotel reservation. You agree to abide by these Terms imposed with respect to your prepaid hotel reservations.
Sales, use and/or local hotel occupancy taxes are imposed on the amounts that we charge for our services (Facilitation Fee and/or service fee) in certain jurisdictions. For hotel stays in New York State, but outside of New York City, tax recovery charges, as described above, are collected to cover the taxes due on the rent received by the hotel for the room and there is no local hotel occupancy tax due on our services. The actual tax amounts on our services may vary depending on the rates in effect at the time of your hotel stay.
You may not book more than 8 rooms online for the same hotel/stay dates. If we determine that you have booked more than 8 rooms in total in separate reservations, we may cancel your reservations, and charge you a cancellation fee, if applicable. If you paid a non-refundable deposit, your deposit will be forfeited. If you wish to book 9 or more rooms, you must contact our group travel specialists by phone or by filling out the group travel form online. One of our group travel specialists will research your request and contact you to complete your reservation. You may be asked to sign a written contract and/or pay a nonrefundable deposit.
PAY NOW OR PAY LATER DETAILS
With certain hotels, you may be presented with the option to pay online now or pay later at the hotel. If you select the "Pay Online Now" option, we will charge the amount to your credit card in U.S. dollars immediately. If you select "Pay Later at the Hotel", the hotel will charge your credit card in the local currency at the time of your stay. Please note that taxes and fees vary between the two payment options. Tax rates and foreign exchange rates could change in the time between booking and stay. Travelocity coupons may only be applied to "Pay Online Now" bookings.
TOP SECRET HOTELS
When available, we may offer additional, discounted hotel booking options on the Services. These hotels, called Top Secret Hotels, are different from other hotels offered on the Services in several important ways. The name and exact address of the hotel are not shown until after payment has been made for the booking. All bookings are final and cannot be changed, refunded, exchanged, cancelled, or transferred to another party. Your credit card will be charged for the amount shown even if you do not use the booking. Room type will be determined by the hotel based on the number of guests provided at time of booking. All reservations are booked for stays in non-smoking rooms (subject to availability). Hotel room assignments are determined at check-in and upgrades are not available. The maximum number of rooms that can be booked at the Top Secret Hotels rate at one time is six. All Top Secret Hotels rooms will be booked under the same name, and the guest under whose name the reservation is made must be present at check-in. Rooms booked under the Top Secret Hotels rate are not eligible for hotel reward or club programs. Upon check-in, guests must present a valid ID and credit card in their name (the amount of available credit required will vary by hotel). Debit cards may not be accepted. For information about tax recovery charges, service fees, and taxes on our services, where applicable, please see "Prepaid Hotel Reservations."
You are responsible for ensuring that you meet foreign entry requirements and that your travel documents, such as passports and visas (transit, business, tourist, and otherwise), are in order and any other foreign entry requirements are met. We have no special knowledge regarding foreign entry requirements or travel documents. We urge customers to review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements, and advisories issued by the relevant governments prior to booking travel to international destinations.
- Passport and Visa– You must consult the relevant Embassy or Consulate for this information. Requirements may change and you should check for up-to-date information before booking and departure. We accept no liability if you are refused entry onto a flight or into any country due to your failure to carry the correct and adequate passport, visa, or other travel documents required by any airline, authority, or country, including countries you may just be transiting through. This includes all stops made by the aircraft, even if you do not leave the aircraft or airport.
- Health– Recommended inoculations for travel may change and you should consult your doctor for current recommendations before you depart. It is your responsibility to ensure that you meet all health entry requirements, obtain the recommended inoculations, take all recommended medication, and follow all medical advice in relation to your trip.
- Disinsection– Although not common, most countries reserve the right to disinsect aircraft if there is a perceived threat to public health, agriculture or environment. The World Health Organization and the International Civil Aviation Organization have approved the following disinsection procedures: (1) spray the aircraft cabin with an aerosolized insecticide while passengers are on board or (2) treat the aircraft's interior surfaces with a residual insecticide while passengers are not on board. For more information, see: http://ostpxweb.dot.gov/policy/safetyenergyenv/disinsection.htm

The carriers, hotels and other suppliers providing travel or other services on the Services are independent contractors and not agents or employees of the Travelscape Companies or the Travelocity Companies. The Travelscape Companies and the Travelocity Companies are not liable for the acts, errors, omissions, representations, warranties, breaches or negligence of any such suppliers or for any personal injuries, death, property damage, or other damages or expenses resulting there from.

If, despite the limitation above, the Travelscape Companies, the Travelocity Companies or their respective suppliers are found liable for any loss or damage which arises out of or in any way connected with any of the occurrences described above, then the liability of the Travelscape Companies, the Travelocity Companies and/or their respective suppliers will in no event exceed, in the aggregate, the greater of (a) the service fees you paid to Travelscape in connection with such transaction(s) on the Services, or (b) One-Hundred Dollars (US$100.00) or the equivalent in local currency.

Further, it is up to you to take precautions to ensure that whatever links you select or software you download (whether from the Services or other locations) is free of such items as viruses, worms, trojan horses, defects and other items of a destructive nature. Our inclusion of hyperlinks to such websites does not imply any endorsement of the material on such websites or any association with their operators.
SOFTWARE AVAILABLE VIA THE SERVICES
Any software that is made available to download from the Services ("Software") or through your mobile application store is the copyrighted work of the Travelscape Companies and/or our respective suppliers. Your use of such Software is governed by the terms of the end user license agreement, if any, which accompanies, or is included with, the Software ("License Agreement").

If a currency converter is available on the Services, the following terms and conditions apply: Currency rates are based on various publicly available sources and should be used as guidelines only. Rates are not verified as accurate, and actual rates may vary. Currency quotes are not updated every day. Check the date on the currency converter feature for the day that currency was last updated. The information supplied by this application is believed to be accurate, but the Travelscape Companies, the Travelocity Companies, and/or our respective suppliers do not warrant or guarantee such accuracy.

We do not authorize the use of this information for any purpose other than your personal use and you are expressly prohibited from the resale, redistribution, and use of this information for commercial purposes.
BANK AND CREDIT CARD FEES
Some banks and credit cards impose fees for international transactions. If you are making a booking from outside of the United States on a U.S. credit card, your bank may convert the payment amount to your local currency and charge you a conversion fee. This means that the amount listed on your credit or bank card statement may be in your local currency and therefore may be a different figure than the figure shown on the billing summary page for the reservation booked on the Services. In addition, a foreign transaction fee may be assessed if the bank that issued your credit card is located outside of the United States. Booking international travel may be considered to be an international transaction by the bank or card company, since we may pass on your payment to an international travel supplier. The currency exchange rate and foreign transaction fee is determined solely by your bank on the day that they process the transaction. If you have any questions about these fees or the exchange rate applied to your booking, please contact your bank.

RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES
These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of Texas, United States of America without regard to conflict of laws provisions that would result in the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. If a dispute does arise between you and us, our goal is to provide you with a neutral and cost effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. Accordingly, you and we agree that we shall resolve any action, claim or controversy at law or equity (a "Claim") that arises out of your use of the Services, these Terms, or the parties' relationship in connection with the Services or these Terms in accordance with one of the subsections below or as otherwise mutually agreed by the parties in writing. Before resorting to these alternatives, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly to seek a resolution by contacting customer service, since most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and satisfactorily in this manner.
- Submission to Jurisdiction in Texas– You agree that unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties in writing or as described in the "Mandatory Arbitration" subsection below, any Claims shall be brought in the state or federal courts located in Tarrant County, the State of Texas, United States of America. Unless otherwise prohibited by applicable law, any Claim must be brought within two (2) years from the date on which such Claim arose or accrued.
- Mandatory Arbitration – Any Claim where the total amount in controversy is less than US$10,000, shall be resolved via binding arbitration initiated through the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"). The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. AAA and the parties must comply with the following rules: (a) if either party requests an in-person hearing the process shall be governed by subsection (c) below, otherwise, the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; (b) the arbitration shall be conducted by an arbitrator in Tarrant County, Texas who is approved or otherwise affiliated with the AAA; (c) if either party requests an in-person hearing, (i) the arbitrator shall decide whether a hearing is necessary or whether the arbitration shall proceed as described in subsection (a) above, (ii)if the arbitrator deems that a hearing is necessary, the hearing shall occur at a mutually agreed upon location, or, if the parties are unable to agree on a location, at a location that is reasonably convenient to you and is selected by the arbitrator, and (iii)either party may elect to participate in an in-person hearing by phone, unless the arbitrator decides otherwise; (d) the arbitrator may award injunctive or declaratory relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim; (e) unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding; and (f) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. If subparagraph (e) above is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Mandatory Arbitration provision shall be null and void. Only a court and not the arbitrator can decide issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this "Resolution of Disputes" section. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND TRAVELSCAPE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION WITH RESPECT TO THE CLAIMS COVERED BY THIS MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISION. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court in Tarrant County, Texas.
- Improperly Filed Claims– All Claims you bring against us must be resolved in accordance with this "Resolution of Disputes" section. All Claims filed or brought contrary to this "Resolution of Disputes" section shall be considered improperly filed and void. Should you file a Claim contrary to this "Resolution of Disputes" section, we may recover attorneys' fees and costs up to $1,000, provided that we have notified you in writing of the improperly filed Claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the Claim.
If we take any action to enforce these Terms, and such Claim is not resolved pursuant to the "Mandatory Arbitration" subsection above, we will be entitled to recover from you, and you agree to pay, all reasonable attorney's fees and any costs of litigation, in addition to any other relief, at law or in equity, to which we may be entitled. Moreover, you agree that we may debit your credit or debit card or charge you for any such amounts.
You acknowledge that a violation or attempted violation of any of these Terms will cause such damage to us as will be irreparable, the exact amount of which would be impossible or difficult to ascertain and for which there will be no adequate remedy at law.
