For purposes of these Terms and Conditions, “Trebeca Affiliates” means any entity which controls, is controlled by or under common control with Trebeca.
4. Modification, Limitation and Discontinuance of the Service
Trebeca reserves the right to suspend or discontinue your access to the Website and Services, and to limit your access to, modify, change or discontinue any aspect of the Services at any time, with or without cause and for any reason, with or without notice. In addition, Trebeca and its Third Party Providers may cancel any travel or service reservations associated with your name, e-mail address or account, and close any associated accounts, if your account or bookings show any signs of fraud, abuse or suspicious activity. In any such event, you agree that Trebeca will not be liable to you or to any third party for any damages or harm you may suffer or incur as a result of its conduct in doing so.
5. Additional Terms and Conditions.
Additional terms and conditions may apply to your reservation and purchase of Services, products and amenities from Trebeca and its Third Party Providers. Please read such additional terms and conditions carefully. You agree to be bound by any such additional terms and conditions imposed by any third party provider with whom you may elect to deal, to pay all amounts when due and to comply with the provider’s rules and restrictions regarding availability, use of fares, products and services. Trebeca and its Third Party Providers reserve the right to cancel your booking if full payment is not received when due.
You acknowledge that some third party suppliers may require you to (a) present them with a credit card upon check-in to cover additional fees or charges that you may incur, and that any such deposit is in addition to any payments you may make to Trebeca or such third party provider; and (b) sign their liability waiver as a condition to their willingness to provide you with the Service, product or amenity they may offer.
You acknowledge that (a) governing authorities in certain jurisdictions often impose additional taxes (e.g. hotel occupancy taxes, tourist tax, etc.), which must be paid locally, and that you are solely responsible for paying such taxes; (b) except as to taxes on amounts which we may retain for our services, Trebeca does not collect taxes for remittance to applicable taxing authorities, and that Trebeca’s third party hotel providers remit the applicable taxes to the applicable taxing jurisdictions; and (c) any tax recovery charges that Trebeca may charge you on prepaid hotel transactions represent the estimated taxes (e.g. sales and use, occupancy, room tax, excise tax, value added tax, etc.) that Trebeca is obligated to pay to the hotel supplier for taxes due on the rental of the room, and do not represent a collection of taxes from you for Trebeca to remit to the applicable tax authorities. The actual tax amounts paid by Trebeca to the hotel suppliers may vary from the tax recovery charge amounts, depending upon factors in effect at the time of the actual use of the hotel by our customers. Trebeca does not act as co-vendor with the Third Party Providers with whom its books or reserves its users’ travel arrangements. Taxes vary by location.
7. Prepaid Hotel Reservations
Trebeca’s Third Party Providers pre-negotiate certain room rates with hotels to facilitate the booking of reservations on its users behalf. You acknowledge that the Website provides you with a platform through which you can to book reservations, and expressly authorize Trebeca and its Third Party Providers to book reservations for the total reservation price, which includes the room rate displayed on the Website, plus tax recovery charges and service fees. You agree that your credit card will be charged for the total reservation price by Trebeca or its Third Party Providers. Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to cancel or change your prepaid hotel reservation. But if you do so, you may 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 SOME LIMITED CIRCUMSTANCES, YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO CHANGE OR CANCEL RESERVATIONS OR BOOKINGS AFTER THEY ARE MADE (E.G. RESERVATIONS AND BOOKINGS MADE ON THE DAY OF TRAVEL, AMONG OTHERS). AS SUCH, PLEASE PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE DATES OF YOUR RESERVATIONS AND MAKE SURE THEY ARE CORRECT; OTHERWISE, YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR NON-CANCELLABLE BOOKINGS, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH BOOKINGS WERE DELIBERATE AND INTENTIONAL, OR OTHERWISE MADE IN ERROR.
You agree to abide by the terms and conditions imposed with respect to your prepaid hotel reservations. You may not book reservations for more than nine (9) rooms online for the same hotel/stay dates. If we determine that you have booked reservations for more than nine (9) rooms in total in separate reservations, we may cancel your reservations, and charge you a cancellation fee, if applicable. If you paid a nonrefundable deposit, your deposit will be forfeited.
8. International Travel
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. Trebeca has 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.
(a) 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.
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.
While extremely uncommon, 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, click here.
BY OFFERING RESERVATIONS FOR TRAVEL PRODUCTS IN PARTICULAR INTERNATIONAL DESTINATIONS, NEITHER Trebeca NOR ITS THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS MAKE ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY THAT TRAVEL TO SUCH AREAS IS ADVISABLE OR WITHOUT RISK, AND ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY INJURY TO PERSONS (INCLUDING DEATH) OR DAMAGE TO OR LOSS OF PROPERTY THAT MAY RESULT FROM TRAVEL TO SUCH DESTINATIONS.

- (b) If Trebeca or any of the Trebeca Representatives are ever found liable for any loss or damage arising from or in connection with the errors or omissions, breaches of representations or warranties or other acts on the part of any of the aforementioned, notwithstanding the foregoing limitation, then the liability of Trebeca and such Trebeca Representatives shall be limited to, and not exceed, the greater of, the revenues earned by Trebeca from the transactions which gave rise to such losses or damages, or U.S. $100.
