These Terms incorporate the Reservations.com Privacy Policy, along with any other terms and conditions that may apply to any of our products, features, promotions, other functionality and/or customer service, including our Cookie Policy.

These Terms represent a binding contract between you and us, and by accessing or using our Site or Services in any manner, you expressly agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree with these Terms, you may not use our Site or Services.

Please review these Terms periodically for changes. We may modify or replace these Terms for any reason and at any time, by posting the updated terms on the Site.

Your continued use of the Site after any such changes constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Service.

Reservations.com is not a provider of accommodations or other travel products

Please note that Reservations.com is a hotels and travel products search and logistics platform. Reservations.com does not provide, own or control any of the hotels, other accommodations, flights, rental cars or other travel packages or products that you may view or access through the Site (collectively, the “Travel Products”). All Travel Products are owned, controlled and provided by third party provider from whom we source such Travel Products in order to provide you with the best deals and service we can. Such third party provider may have their own terms of service and privacy policies which may be applicable to your actual reservation, and you must review and agree to the same. Any reservation made through our Site is made with the third party provider of the applicable Travel Product, and we have no direct responsibility for the same.

To provide you with the best deals on Travel Products possible, we may source inventory directly from third party providers as well as from suppliers who are not themselves direct providers; we refer to these suppliers as “Booking Partners.” Through our relationship with our Booking Partners, we are authorized to market and/or sell the inventory offered by us. Please note though that we do not in any way (directly or indirectly, independently or in conjunction with any party) own, manage, operate, or control, and we assume no responsibility for, any Booking Partner, any of the Travel Products they offer, their content, their policies, or any of their practices.

As a search and logistics platform, we display third party content. Reservations.com is not responsible for and cannot guarantee the accuracy, timeliness or completeness of any such third party content. The content displayed on our Site changes routinely and additional terms and conditions and/or prices may apply, depending on the third party provider. Some Travel Products may be sold in a currency other than U.S. dollars, though unless otherwise indicated, all prices are displayed on our Site in U.S. dollars.

Your engagement with any third party for Travel Products through Reservations.com is at your sole risk. The display on or through the Site of any individual Travel Product does not imply our endorsement of the same, or in any way constitute a recommendation from us about the nature of such Travel Product(s). We do not bear any responsibility or have any liability, other than as expressly set forth in these Terms, in connection with the same.

As a condition of your use of this Site, you represent and warrant the following:

  1. You are at least 18 years old;
  2. You possess the legal ability and authority to create a binding legal obligation;
  3. You will use this Site in accordance with these Terms;
  4. You will only use this Site to make legitimate reservations for you and/or another person(s) for whom you are legally authorized to act;

If you are creating an account on behalf of a party other than yourself, such as your employer, your client, or another legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the legal authority to do so and acknowledge that by creating the account such third party will be bound by these Terms. You agree that we may send email communications as well as telephone or text messages, including calls and/or push notifications, to you for customer service, account and/or product confirmations, product offers and other similar matters. Calls may be made by an automatic telephone dialing system and/or with an artificial or pre-recorded voice. You acknowledge that you agree to receive the same. You may choose to opt out of much of this correspondence through your account settings or by using the links at the bottom of our emails, or by replying ‘STOP’ to any promotional text messages. Please note that even if you opt out, we will still send you account and service-related emails.

Your use of Reservations.com is at your own risk. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account Information and agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account Information or if you otherwise believe your Account Information has been compromised.

restrictions and prohibited uses

Reservations.com is used by many people, and we are proud of the trust our users place in us. We expect, in turn, that our users do not misuse our service. Except with our prior written permission, you may not:

  1. Attempt to impersonate another person or use another person’s Reservations.com account information without express, written authorization;
  2. Distribute Reservations.com for your own commercial purposes;
  3. Violate or attempt to violate any of the Reservations.com security features, including logging into a server that you are not authorized to access, or probing the vulnerability of our systems and networks;

  5. Use Reservations.com for the purpose of creating a product with a substantially similar look, feel or design;
  6. Access or search Reservations.com by any means other than our publicly supported interfaces (for example, “scraping”);
  7. Interfere with others’ use and enjoyment of Reservations.com;
  8. Use any Reservations.com trademarks, trade names, service marks, copyrights, or logos in your own mailings, spam material, contests or surveys, or to create the impression you are associated with such items;
  9. Violate any third party’s rights, including intellectual property or privacy rights.

Written requests regarding any of the aforementioned restrictions and prohibited use may be submitted to [email protected] Engaging in prohibited uses is grounds for immediate termination of your account and may also subject you to civil or criminal penalties.

Pricing Structure and Cancellations

The rates displayed on our Site are a combination of the rates and fees charged by the third party provider supplying the relevant Travel Products and/or the Booking Partner.

We additionally charge a non-refundable service fee for each transaction completed via the Site or our 24/7 Customer Call Center. Our service fee is clearly separated from the provider’s rate for the applicable Travel Product(s). OUR SERVICE FEE IS NON-REFUNDABLE, EVEN IF YOU MODIFY AND/OR CANCEL A MODIFIABLE/CANCELLABLE RESERVATION. The total price will include our service fee.

There may be other charges that accrue to you from the Travel Services provider, such as a resort fee, that are not included in the amounts we collect from you. You will have to pay those charges directly. Before booking, you should check to determine whether the Travel Services provider will charge additional fees upon your arrival.

EACH PROVIDER, BOOKING PARTNER, AND EACH BOOKING IS DIFFERENT. SOME ARE MODIFIABLE AND/OR CANCELABLE, SOME ARE NOT. PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THE CANCELLATION POLICY ASSOCIATED WITH THE RESERVATION YOU ARE BOOKING, WHICH APPEARS BELOW THE AREA WHERE THE CHARGES FOR YOUR RESERVATION IS DISPLAYED, OR AS OTHERWISE DISPLAYED BY OUR BOOKING PARTNERS. IF YOU ARE CALLING OUR 24/7 CUSTOMER CALL CENTER, PLEASE REVIEW THE CANCELLATION POLICY WITH THE AGENT. Change(s) to a reservation after booking may result in additional fees at the discretion of the provider and/or the Booking Partner. Cancellations or no-shows are subject to a monetary penalty, the total amount of which is within the providers and/or the Booking Partner’s discretion.

Tax Recovery Charges and Fees

In addition to the rate and our service fee, our Site displays a line item for “Tax Recovery Charges and Fees,” which you will be charged when making your reservation. “Tax Recovery Charges and Fees” consists of: (i) an estimate of the taxes payable in connection with your booking, including, but not limited to, sales and use tax, occupancy tax, room tax, excise tax, value added tax and/or other similar taxes; (ii) if applicable, taxes payable by our Booking Partner in connection with your booking; and (iii) service fees retained by our Booking Partner and/or us in addition to our itemized service fee.

Some bookings, like those that do not require payment in full at the time of making your reservation, may not include the “Tax Recovery Charges and Fees” line item. Instead, that booking may display an estimate of the taxes applicable to the transaction that you can expect to be charged directly upon arrival.

We do not collect taxes for remittance to applicable taxing authorities. The provider of the Travel Products is responsible for remitting applicable taxes. In certain jurisdictions, our Booking Partner may also be responsible for remitting taxes related to your booking. Neither us nor any of our Booking Partners act as a co-vendor with each other or with any hotel.

The amount paid for taxes in connection with your booking may vary from the estimated amount charged to you, depending upon the rates, taxability, and any other metric in effect at the time when you actually use the applicable Travel Product(s). If the amount paid is less than the estimate, the balance of the charge for “Tax Recovery Charges and Fees” is retained by us and/or our Booking Partner as part of the compensation for facilitating and servicing your reservation.

“Tax Recovery Charges and Fees” do not include other charges, like resort fees, energy surcharges, parking fees, pet fees, and incidental charges (such as room service, mini-bar, gratuities). Unless otherwise indicated, these amounts will be collected from you directly by the provider.

Because we are not the entity responsible for remitting taxes, we are not able to honor any request for a tax-exempt booking, but the applicable provider may be able to offer tax exemption with proper proof of eligibility. We make no promise or guaranty that any provider will honor a tax-exempt request.

Intellectual Property

Reservations.com and its content, features and functionality are owned by Reservations.com and are protected by international copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, and other intellectual property or proprietary rights laws and you agree to abide by them.

Security

Reservations.com maintains certain technical and administrative safeguards designed to improve the security, confidentiality and integrity of the Site. No such measures are capable of guaranteeing complete security though, and we disclaim all implied warranties as to the security of the Site.

Travel Advisories and Visa Requirements

Although most travel is completed without incident, travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than others. We urge all users to review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements, and advisories (including, but not limited to, health and disease advisories) issued by the destination governments prior to booking travel (“Travel Advisories”), particularly when travelling to international destinations.

By displaying Travel Products in particular destinations, Reservations.com does not represent or warrant that travel to such points is advisable or risk-free and we can never be held liable for damages or losses that may result from travel to such destinations. You make all reservations at your own risk. You may want to purchase travel insurance, but it may not cover all circumstances or costs that could arise. Depending on the cancellation policies of the applicable providers that apply to your reservation (see Pricing Structure and Cancellations above), you may not be able to modify or cancel your reservation, even if a Travel Advisory or other condition prevents you from using your reservation.

Reservations.com is not liable for any loss incurred in the event of your failure to hold the necessary passports, visas and documentation for your journey. You are advised to check with the relevant embassies, consulates and/or visa departments of the countries you wish to visit. It is your responsibility to obtain whatever travel documents are required.

Please note that some countries have strict rules and regulations on the import of restricted or prohibited goods, items or substances. These can include but are not necessarily limited to alcohol, tobacco, perfumes, medication, books, movies, DVDs, adult entertainment materials, food stuffs, plants, and animal parts, among others. It is your responsibility to verify and comply with all applicable regulations.

Although the Site may be accessible worldwide, we make no representation that materials or content displayed on or through the Site are appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United States or Canada, and accessing them from territories where their contents are illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access this site from other locations do so of their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws. Any offer for any product, service, and/or information made in connection with this Site is void where prohibited.

Agreement to arbitrate and waiver of class action claims

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.

If a dispute arises, our goal is to provide you a neutral and cost-effective means to resolve it quickly. Most disputes can be resolved informally. Before filing a claim against us, you agree to try to resolve the dispute by contacting us via email at [email protected] Before we file a claim against you, we agree to contact you at the email address associated with your Reservations.com account, or if you have not established an account then at your preferred communications method. If the dispute is not resolved within 60 days of notice, either you or we may bring a formal proceeding pursuant to the following procedures:

A. GENERAL. YOU AGREE THAT YOU AND RESERVATIONS.COM WILL RESOLVE THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION ANY DISPUTE, CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY BETWEEN US ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO RESERVATIONS.COM OR YOUR USE THEREOF, INCLUDING THESE TERMS (collectively, “ARBITRAL CLAIMS”), with a few exceptions set forth below. The arbitrator, and not any court, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this Agreement to Arbitrate, including any claim that all or any part of this Agreement to Arbitrate is void or voidable, or whether a claim is subject to arbitration.

ARBITRATION IS DIFFERENT FROM COURT. THE RULES, INCLUDING DISCOVERY, ARE DIFFERENT AND NO JUDGE OR JURY IS PRESENT AT AN ARBITRATION. IN SOME INSTANCES, THE COSTS OF ARBITRATION COULD EXCEED THE COST OF LITIGATION, AND THE RIGHT TO DISCOVERY MAY BE MORE LIMITED. THE AWARD IS FINAL AND BINDING AND SUBJECT ONLY TO LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ABSENT THIS MANDATORY PROVISION, YOU MAY HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL.

B. ARBITRATION SERVICES AND RULES. The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) will administer the arbitration using the AAA procedures and rules in effect on the date the Arbitration is filed (“AAA Rules”). In the event the AAA Rules are inconsistent with this Agreement to Arbitrate, this Agreement will prevail. AAA is independent from us, and you may obtain copies of the current AAA Rules, and other related materials, including forms and instructions for initiating arbitration, by contacting AAA at 150 N Michigan Ave #3050, Chicago, IL 60601 or http://adr.org. Unless otherwise prohibited by applicable law, and except for New Jersey residents, any claim must be filed within two (2) years from the date on which such claim arose or accrued.

C. LOCATION OF ARBITRATION. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules, and any in-person hearing will be held in Orlando, FL, or any other location you and we mutually agree to.

D. EXCEPTIONS TO ARBITRAL CLAIMS. Either you or we may bring claims to enforce intellectual property rights, or in response to any allegations or charges of criminal activity, without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute resolution described in this Section.

E. CLASS ACTION WAIVER. YOU AND RESERVATIONS.COM AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. YOU FURTHER AGREE WITH US THAT NEITHER YOU NOR WE WILL JOIN ANY ARBITRAL CLAIM WITH THE CLAIM OF ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY IN A LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION OR OTHER PROCEEDING; THAT NO ARBITRAL CLAIM WILL BE RESOLVED ON A CLASS-WIDE BASIS; THAT NEITHER YOU NOR WE WILL ASSERT AN ARBITRAL CLAIM IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF ANYONE ELSE; AND BOTH PARTIES EXPRESSLY WAIVE THEIR RIGHT TO FILE A CLASS ACTION OR SEEK RELIEF ON A CLASS BASIS. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable or that arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then this Agreement to Arbitrate shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.

F. PAGA WAIVER. TO THE EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, THERE WILL BE NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE BROUGHT, HEARD OR ARBITRATED ON A GROUP BASIS OR IN ANY ACTION IN WHICH A PARTY SEEKS TO REPRESENT OTHER INDIVIDUAL(S) IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION (“PAGA WAIVER”). PAGA CLAIMS MAY ONLY BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. If any court or arbitrator determines that the PAGA Waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable, then this clause shall be deemed null and void in its entirety, but the remaining clauses herein shall survive unless a court or arbitrator determines otherwise.

G. NO RIGHT TO JURY TRIAL. YOU AND RESERVATIONS.COM ALSO HEREBY WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL EVEN IF THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE IS HELD NOT TO APPLY. YOU EXPRESSLY WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL IN THE EVENT THAT EITHER PARTY SELECTS ARBITRATION TO RESOLVE THE DISPUTE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.

H. 30 DAY OPT OUT RIGHT. You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and the class action waiver provisions set forth herein by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out by email to [email protected] For new users, the notice must be sent within 30 days of registering with Reservations.com, and for existing users, the notice must be sent within 30 days of the effective date of this policy. If you do not opt-out, you shall be bound to the terms in this Section. If you choose to opt-out, we will also not be bound.

General

Governing Law, Jurisdiction and Venue: Except to the extent preempted by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), these Terms are governed by Florida law without regard to conflict of law provisions.

Indemnification: You will indemnify and hold us, our affiliates, officers and/or employees harmless, including by paying costs and attorneys’ fees, from any claim or demand made by any third party due to or arising out of your access to Reservations.com, Your Content, or the violation of these Terms by you.

In case of conflict between the English language version and a translated version, the English language version of the Terms of Service shall prevail.

Severability and Waiver: If any part of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting the intent of these Terms as closely as possible. Either party’s failure to enforce any term or condition herein is not a waiver of its right to do so later.
