SUPPLIER RULES AND RESTRICTIONS

Additional terms of use will apply to your reservation and purchase of travel-related goods and services that you select. Please read these additional terms of use carefully. In particular, if you have purchased an airfare, please ensure you read the full terms and conditions of carriage issued by the airline or other travel supplier, which can be found on the supplier’s website. Airlines may, with or without notice, cancel or reschedule your flight. It is your responsibility to check on the scheduled departure time ahead of travel. AAE shall not be responsible for, or the failure to inform you of, any cancellation of your flights, or changes in your flight schedule. To minimize the impact to your travel plans, you are advised to purchase travel insurance to cover travel disruption. You agree to abide by the terms of use 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. AAE reserves the right to cancel your booking if full payment is not received in a timely fashion. You acknowledge that some hotel suppliers may require you to present a credit card or cash deposit upon check-in to cover additional expenses during your stay. Such deposit is unrelated to any payment received by AAE 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.

Customers may be offered the opportunity to book a reservation for a combination of two one-way tickets instead of a roundtrip ticket. Combined one-way tickets may provide a greater choice of flights, are often cheaper and can be combined on the same airline or on different airlines. Unlike roundtrip tickets, each one-way ticket is subject to its own rules, restrictions, and fees. If one of these flights is affected by an airline change (e.g. cancellation or rescheduling) that causes a Customer to make changes to the other flight, the Customer will be responsible for any fees incurred for making changes to the unaffected flight.

HOW OUR SORT ORDER IS DETERMINED

As a traveler shopping on our site, you have many options to help you find the perfect hotel, flight, car rental, cruise or activity. The “sort” settings allow you to order search results to your preference, whether based on price, verified review score, or other criteria. The “filter” settings also allow you to include or exclude various options to suit their travel needs. If no options are selected, we will show a range of relevant options in the search results, based on the criteria outlined below:

  • Lodging: Our default sort order reflects the relevance of properties to your search criteria, as we want to make sure you are able to quickly and easily find the offer that is right for you. We measure relevance by taking into account factors like a property’s location, its review scores, the popularity of the property (measured by how many travelers on our sites make bookings at that property), the quality of the content provided by the property, and the competitiveness of the property’s rates and availability, all relative to other properties meeting your chosen search criteria. The compensation which a property pays us for bookings made through our sites is also a factor for the relative ranking of properties with similar offers, based on the relevance factors described above. On our non-default sorts (for example, if you sort by price or by star rating), we will order properties with similar results based on the factors above.
  • Flights: Our default sort order is based on lowest price. In cases where two flights have the same price, the shorter flight is listed first.
  • Car Rental: Our default sort order is primarily driven by price, but we may consider other relevant factors such as popularity, customer reviews, convenience of pickup location, and car type or category.
  • Cruise: Our default sort order is based on a number of relevant factors such as cruise line rating, ship rating, price per day, origin rating, destination rating, length of cruise, and booking window.
  • Activities: Our default sort order is manually curated by Expedia’s destination managers familiar with each market, taking into account such factors as price, popularity, distance from hotel options, and traveler feedback.
  • Vacation Packages: When combining several different travel products into a vacation package, we use the criteria outlined above to determine the sort order for each product.

Additionally, we continually optimize our service to provide you with the best experience. Accordingly, we may test different default sort order algorithms from time to time.

By booking with or through AAE, you authorize the AAE Companies and its agents and service providers to transact with your bank or other payment gateways on your behalf to obtain the necessary information required to process payment, confirm payment, resolve inquiries and billing disputes, and/or as otherwise required to manage the booking.

 

Agency Bookings: For some bookings, AAE and/or any AAE Companies (“Agent”) will only act as an intermediary between you and the service providers, and you agree that the contractual relationship will be directly between you and that service provider. The Agent’s sole role and responsibility is to transmit the details of your reservation to the relevant service provider (“Service Provider”), and send you a confirmation email for and on behalf of the relevant service provider (“Agency Bookings”). Payments for all the Agency Bookings will be in accordance with the terms and conditions set out by the Service Provider (“Service Provider’s Terms”). You agree to be bound by the Service Provider’s Terms, which could include (but not limited to) the Service Provider’s rules and restrictions regarding availability and use of fares, products, or services. Certain service providers could also offer the opportunity for reservations to be paid or a deposit to be taken during the reservation process by means of secure online payment. For all Agency Bookings, payments will be processed directly by the Service Provider on your credit/debit card or bank account.

Merchant Bookings: For transactions other than Agency Booking (“Merchant Bookings”), AAE accepts cards with MasterCard or Visa branding, which your issuer allows you to use to make purchases online. You will not be asked to provide your online banking user name or password to the AAE Companies (“Account Access Data”). The AAE Companies do not want any information regarding your Account Access Data and you agree not to provide us with your Account Access Data.


Refunds:

  1. Refunds for Agency Bookings:

    For all Agency Bookings, by making a reservation with a Service Provider, you agree to the Service Provider’s terms and conditions of booking, as well as its cancellation, refunds and no-show policy – please read these carefully before making your reservation. Please note that certain rates or special offers are or may not be eligible for cancellation or change, and you will not be entitled to any refund of prepaid amounts. Please check the conditions thoroughly prior to making your reservations. Late payment, wrong bank, debit or credit card details, invalid credit/debit cards or insufficient funds will be at your own risk and account. For any alteration, review, cancellation or any adjustment to your reservation, please follow the instructions provided to you by the Service Provider, which may be set out in the confirmation e-mail. The Service Provider may charge you a fee for your cancellation or amendment in accordance with its policies.

  2. Refunds for Merchant Bookings:
    1. For refund of Merchant Bookings, the refunded amounts are generally returned within 2 – 5 business days by the acquiring bank at the direction of the AAE Companies; however, the length of time required for the funds to be credited to your account is determined by your financial institution. Please check with your financial institution on their specific rules regarding returned or refunded transactions. A delay in refund may also occur when there is a discrepancy between the acquiring bank and your issuing bank. Refunds limited to 1 per booking. If your travel arrangements are subject to more than one change, it may be necessary to cancel the entire booking; any eligible refunds will be sent to your financial institution to credit your account in accordance with its policies. Rebooking your travel will require a new and separate payment.
    2. The AAE Companies have no obligation to issue refunds if: (i) the AAE Companies received payment ninety (90) or more days prior to our receipt of the refund request for a booking transaction; (ii) the purchase requires more than one refund or credit; (iii) in response to a disputed booking appearing on your statement from your financial institution, your financial institution issues you a refund for the disputed booking transaction and sends the AAE Companies a charge back on the transaction (a charge back reverses the payment you made to the AAE Companies for the refunded transaction); (iv) the booking is for non-refundable travel products or services; (v) you cannot provide us with full and accurate information required to complete the refund or credit; (vi) the refund request has already been processed, but has not yet been applied to the originating source of the payment; (vii) the refund request directs the AAE Companies to issue the refund to a different financial institution than the source where the original payment was received; (viii) the AAE Companies did not receive the payment for which the refund request is made due to force majeure or other causes beyond our direct control; or (ix) the booking is an Agency Booking, where the refunds of any amount advanced to the Service Provider shall be the sole responsibility of such Service Provider.
    3. In the event a refund cannot be handled within standard refund protocols or to process a refund after ninety (90) days, you may be asked to supply additional information and to provide documentation of the original charge.

PREPAID HOTEL RESERVATIONS

You acknowledge that the AAE Companies pre-negotiate certain room rates with hotel suppliers. The room rate displayed on the Website is a combination of the pre-negotiated room rate for rooms reserved on your behalf through AAE and compensation retained by AAE for its services. You authorize AAE to book reservations for the total reservation price, which includes the room rate displayed on this Website, plus tax recovery charges, taxes (where applicable), and service fees. You agree that your credit card will be charged by AAE Travel Services India Private Limited or another member of the AAE Companies for the total reservation price. Upon submitting your reservation request you authorize the AAE Companies to facilitate hotel reservations on your behalf, including making payment arrangements with hotel suppliers.

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 AAE Companies pay to the hotel in connection with your bookings. The hotels charge the AAE Companies for certain charges, including such tax amounts. The hotels are responsible for remitting these amounts to the applicable taxing jurisdictions. Taxability and the appropriate tax rate vary greatly by location. The actual amounts paid by the AAE Companies to the hotels in connection with taxes may vary from the tax recovery charge, depending upon the rates, taxability, etc. in effect at the time of your actual use of the hotel. In certain jurisdictions, VAT, GST or other similar taxes may be imposed on the booking price or the compensation AAE retains for its services. The actual tax amounts on our services, if any, may vary depending on the rates in effect at the time of your hotel stay. We may retain service fees as additional compensation in servicing your travel reservation. Service fees retained by AAE for its 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 the Terms of Use imposed with respect to your prepaid hotel reservations.

You may not book reservations for more than 8 rooms online for the same hotel/stay dates.

PAYMENT AND FEES

Many bank and card companies charge their account holders a transaction fee when the card issuer and the merchant location (as defined by the card brand (e.g. Visa, MasterCard, American Express) are in different countries. The currency exchange rate, if applicable, and any transaction fee are determined solely by the bank or other agency processing the transaction. These fees may be applied by the card issuer as a charge to the cardholders account. When applied by the card issuer, the fees will be listed separately from the transaction amount on a card statement.

If you have any questions about these fees or any exchange rate applied to your booking, please contact your bank.
