Due to the nature of the internet, Travlr cannot guarantee the continuous and uninterrupted availability and accessibility of the Travlr Platform. Travlr may restrict the availability of the Travlr Platform or certain areas or features thereof, if this is necessary in view of capacity limits, to protect the security or integrity of Our servers, and/or to carry out maintenance measures that ensure the proper or improved functioning of the Travlr Platform. Travlr may, at its sole discretion, improve, enhance and modify the Travlr Platform from time to time.
Subject to, and your compliance with the various terms and conditions of the Agreement, Travlr grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, revocable, non-transferable licence to (i) use the Travlr Platform; and (ii) access, browse and view any Content made available on or through the Travlr Platform and accessible to you, solely for your personal and non-commercial use and for the Permitted Purposes.

2.3 Scope of Travlr services
Travlr sell, resell or offer various travel related products and services, via the Travlr Platform, as agent on behalf of numerous transport, accommodation and other travel related product and services providers and wholesalers.
For certain Travlr Products and Services, We may also act as an intermediary between you and the Travel Product Provider with which you have made a Reservation or Purchase of a Travel Product via the Travlr Platform, to:
- facilitate, collect, process and/or remit payment of any fee, purchase or hire of any Travel Products via the Travlr Platform;
- transmit the relevant details of your Reservation or Purchase (made or completed on or via the Travlr Platform) to the relevant Travel Product Provider; and/or
- send you a Reservation confirmation for and on behalf of the Travel Provider.
Only Travlr Product Providers which have a commercial relationship with Travlr (through an agreement) will be made available on Travlr Platform.
The Travlr Platform is not an open platform where end users can make their product available. Travlr does not allow non-professional parties to offer or sell their products on or through the Travlr Platform. The Travel Product Providers alone are responsible for their Listings and the supply of their Travel Products, and any advertisement or Content in connection with their Travel Products that are posted by the Travel Product Providers on the Travlr Platform.
We have no control over, or liability for, the Travel Products offered or provided by the Travel Product Providers. All Reservations for such Travel Products are made on your behalf subject to the terms and conditions, including conditions of carriage and limitation of liability, imposed by these Travel Product Providers, which are either made available via the Travlr Platform or will be made available to you at the time of the making of the Reservation.
The Travlr Platform does not constitute and should not be regarded as a recommendation, endorsement or confirmation of (the quality, service level or rating of) any Travel Products listed on the Travlr Platform. We hereby disclaim any representation, warranty or undertaking in relation to the quality, status or accuracy of any advertisement or Content in relation to a Travel Destination or a Travel Product posted on the Travlr Platform.
Your legal rights in connection with the delivery, provision and supply of any Travel Products for which we act as an intermediary only are against the Travel Product Providers of those products and, except to the extent a problem is directly caused by fault on Our part, are not against Us. Specifically, if for any reason (excluding fault on Our part), any Travel Provider is unable to provide the Travel Products for which you have made a Reservation via the Travlr Platform, your rights are against the relevant Travel Providers and not Travlr.
3. Reservation of Travel Products
3.1 Prices for Travel Products
You acknowledge that prices for the Travel Products as advertised on the Travlr Platform are fixed by the Travel Product Providers and therefore:
- are subject to changes or updates by the Travel Product Providers at any time and from time to time; and
- may carry special restrictions and conditions, for example non-cancellable and non-refundable, validity and expiration period. We recommend that you check the relevant special restrictions and conditions (including product, service and reservation conditions and details thoroughly for any such conditions) prior to making your Reservation.
All prices for the Travel Products are displayed excluding GST/sales tax and all other Taxes (including tourist/ city taxes, occupancy taxes, airport taxes) and fees (including any bank fees, administration fees, service fees, currency exchange fees, late check out fees or early check in fees), unless stated differently on the Travlr Platform or the confirmation email/ticket for your Reservation.
Please note that the Travel Product Providers may also have, declare applicable and/or require acceptance of, in addition to the policies and fine print as advertised or published by them on the Travlr Platform, their own terms and conditions, house rules, disclaimers and limitations of liability for the Reservation, use, delivery (including shipping and carriage), payment, refund, cancellation, access and consummation of the relevant Travel Products (collectively the “Provider Terms & Conditions”). We recommend that you carefully read the Provider Terms and Conditions before you (decide to) make or complete a Reservation. Inability to check in to a reserved property due to your lack of capacity to meet one of these terms and conditions (eg, payment of a bond) is not grounds for a refund.
Subject to your acceptance, and agreement to observe and comply with, the applicable Provider Terms and Conditions (where applicable), you can make a Reservation of a Travel Product on the Travlr Platform by following the respective booking process displayed therein.
By making or completing a Reservation of a Travel Product, you:
- confirm that you have read and understand, and you accept, the Provider Terms and Conditions applicable to, the Reservation of the Travel Products;
- offer to make the Reservation for the relevant Travel Products for the Total Price, subject to the Provider Terms and Conditions and this Agreement;
- agree to enter into a direct legally binding contractual relationship with the Travel Product Provider with which you make a Reservation or Purchase of the Travel Products, subject to confirmation of your Reservation by the Travel Product Provider and subject to the Provider Terms and Conditions and this Agreement;
- agree, and undertake in favour of the relevant Travel Product Provider and Us, to be bound by, observe and comply the Provider Terms and Conditions;
- You acknowledge that your Reservation becomes binding on the Travel Product Provider only upon confirmation of acceptance of your Reservation by the Travel Product Provider and subject to cancellation under the Provider Terms and Conditions and this Agreement;
- The Travel Product Provider or Travlr reserve the right not to accept guests or Reservations (or in exceptional cases to cancel confirmed ones) at their discretion and for whatever reasons (including, without limitation, non-availability) without the need to justify such refusal or non-acceptance;
- In case a Reservation is rejected or cancelled by the Travel Product Provider or Travlr and a payment has already been made, you will receive a refund of the Total Price collected by Travlr, less any bank fees and third party process charges; and
- In rare cases, We may also have to cancel or reject a Reservation or make adjustments due to “obvious errors”, independent of the origin of such errors. For clarity, an obvious error is a mistake on the Travlr Platform (e.g. in terms of price, conditions, points) which a reasonable person would not consider to be normal. In such cases, the booking or awarded points will be adjusted, or, where relevant, the amount charged will be reimbursed without charge.
3.3 Payment of the Total Price
If applicable and available, certain Travel Product Providers offer the opportunity for Reservations to be paid (wholly or partly and as required under the payment policy of the relevant Travel Product Provider) to the Travel Product Provider during the Reservation process by means of secure online payment (all to the extent offered and supported by your bank). For certain Travel Products, Travlr acts as an intermediary to facilitate (through third party payment processors) the collection, payment and remittance of the Total Prices for the relevant Travel Products for and on behalf of those Travel Product Providers.
Any payment facilitated by Travlr for and on behalf of, and transferred to, the Travel Product Provider will in each case constitute a payment of (part of) the Total Price by you of the relevant Travel Product and you cannot reclaim such paid monies, except where your Reservation is fully or partly refundable on cancellation and you have cancelled your Reservation in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and the Provider Terms and Conditions (as applicable) prior to the expiration of the relevant period where refund may be claimed.
For certain (non-refundable) rates or special offers, the Travel Product Providers may require that payment is made upfront by electronic transfer (if available) or by credit card, and therefore your credit card may be pre-authorised or charged (sometimes without any option for refund) upon making a Reservation. Please check the (reservation) details of the Travel Product for any such conditions prior to making your Reservation.
You will not hold Travlr liable or responsible for any (authorized, (allegedly) unauthorized or wrong) charge by the Travel Product Provider and, except to the extent where a refund may be claimed on cancellation of your Reservation, not (re)claim any amount for any valid or authorized charge by the Travel Product Provider (including for pre-paid rates, no-show and chargeable cancellation) of your credit card.
In the event of credit card fraud or unauthorized use of your credit card by third parties, most banks and credit card companies bear the risk and cover all the charges resulting from such fraud or misuse, which may sometimes be subject to a deductible. In the event that your credit card company or bank charges the deducible from you because of unauthorized transactions resulting from a Reservation made on the Travlr Platform, you will solely be liable, and release Travlr and the Travel Product Provider from any liability, for payment of this deductible.
Travlr and the Travel Product Provider are not responsible for any fees that a third party payment processor may impose when Travlr charges the Total Price for a Reservation made by you, and Travlr disclaims all liability in this regard.
Any offline or manual transactions incur a 5% processing fee.
3.4 Pre-payment, cancellation, no-show and fine print
By making and completing a Reservation of a Travel Product, you accept and agree to the relevant cancellation and no-show policy for the Travel Product, and to the applicable Provider Terms and Conditions that may apply to the Travel Product (including the fine print of the Travel Product Provider made available on the Travlr Platform and the relevant house rules of the relevant Travel Product Provider), including for services rendered and/or products offered by the Travel Product Provider. The relevant (delivery/purchase/use/carrier) terms and conditions of a Travel Product Provider can be obtained from the relevant Travel Product Provider.
Please note that certain rates, fees or special offers are not eligible for cancellation, refund or change. Applicable Tax and fees may still be charged by the Travel Product Provider in the event of a no-show or charged cancellation. Please check the Reservation details and the applicable Provider Terms and Conditions of the Travel Product thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your Reservation. Please note that a Reservation which requires down payment or (wholly or partly) prepayment may be cancelled (without a prior notice of default or warning) insofar the relevant (remaining) amount(s) cannot be collected in full on the relevant due or payment date in accordance with the relevant payment policy of the Travel Product Provider and the Reservation. Cancellation and prepayment policies may vary per segment or Travel Product Please carefully read the Provider Terms and Conditions (including any fine print) and important information in your Reservation confirmation for additional policies as may be applied by the Travel Product Provider (e.g. in respect of age requirement, security deposit, non-cancellation/additional supplements for group bookings, extra beds/no free breakfast, pets/cards accepted). Neither TRAVLR nor the Travel Product Provider is liable or has any responsibility in the event of a cancellation of Reservation/Purchase due to late payment, wrong bank, debit or credit card details, invalid credit/debit cards or insufficient funds, which are at your own risk and account and you shall not be entitled to any refund of any (non-refundable) prepaid amount unless the Travel Product Provider agrees or allows otherwise under its (pre)payment and cancellation policy.
If you wish to review, adjust or cancel your Reservation, please revert to the confirmation email and follow the instructions therein. Please note that you may be charged for your cancellation and/or not be entitled to any repayment of any (pre)paid amount in accordance with the Provider Terms and Conditions. We recommend that you read the Provider Terms and Conditions carefully prior to making your Reservation and remember to make further payments on time as may be required for the relevant Reservation.
If you have a late or delayed arrival on the check-in date or only arrive the next day, make sure to (timely/promptly) communicate this with the Travel Product Provider so they know when to expect you to avoid cancellation of your reservation or room or charge of the no-show fee. Travlr does not accept any liability or responsibility for the consequences of your delayed arrival or any cancellation or charged no-show fee by the Travel Product Provider. We recommend you take out relevant travel insurance to protect you from various unforeseen events and to protect you from the potential results of these changes.
Travlr will not charge Users (not being Travel Product Providers) for any Reservation made via the Travlr Platform or your use, access or browsing of the Content contained therein, except for the Total Prices and any applicable Taxes and fees charged by a third party or which Travlr is liable to pay as a result of your Reservation.
Travlr may receive a commission (being a small percentage of the Total Price for a Reservation of a Travel Product made via the Travlr Platform) from the Travel Product Provider.
3.6 Cancellations and Refunds
If a User cancels a confirmed Reservation, Travlr will refund the amount of the Total Prices which the Travlr had collected from the User via the Travlr Platform at the time of Reservation process, to the User, subject to any applicable cancellation fees, pursuant to the relevant Provider Terms and Conditions and as otherwise in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement less any third party fees and charges including bank fees and credit card fees and charges.
If a Travlr Product Provider cancels a confirmed Reservation, Travlr will provide the User who has made the Reservation, a full refund of the Total Prices (which Travlr had collected via the Travlr Platform at the time of the Reservation process and which Travlr has not remitted the payment of the Total Prices to the Travel Product Providers at the time of your cancellation) less any third party bank fees, credit card charges and any other third party charges) within a commercially reasonable time of the cancellation. Such refund will be made to you using the same Payment Method and currency which you chose to pay the Total Prices at the time of Reservation, unless otherwise agreed.
If a User or a Travel Product Provider decides for any reason to cancel a confirmed Reservation pursuant to the relevant Provider Terms and Conditions and the provisions of this Agreement, the User whose Reservation has been cancelled, agree that Travlr will not have any liability for such cancellations or refunds aside from its obligations to remit refunds pursuant to the Provider Terms and Conditions and the provisions of this Agreement.
(a) The Travlr Platform facilitates Reservations between you and the relevant Travel Product Provider who may prefer to pay in a currency different from their destination currency, which may require currency conversions to accommodate these differing currency preferences. Although the Travlr Platform allows Users to view the price of Listings in a number of currencies, the currencies available for Users to make and receive payments may be limited, and may not include the default currency in any given geographic location.
(b) You may be given an option to pay for a Reservation in a currency different from their destination currency or the currency accepted by the Travel Product Provider. Travel Product price or rates provided in a currency other than the currency displayed on the Travlr Platform are converted to the displayed currency at a rate determined by Travlr, which may include a conversion and/or processing fee for certain currencies.
(c) The currency and amount you see displayed at the latest on the final booking page is the amount Travlr will charge to you. Your bank and/or any third party payment processor may impose additional fees on the transaction, over which Travlr has no control. Please note that exchange rates fluctuate daily.
4. Content, review and rating
4.1 Third Party Links
The Travlr Platform may contain links to websites or resources of the Travel Product Providers, payment processers or any other third party ("Third Party Sites"). Such Third-Party Sites will be subject to different terms and conditions and privacy practices to the terms of this Agreement. Travlr assumes no responsibility to verify, and is not responsible or liable for, the availability or accuracy of such Third-Party Sites, or the content, products, or services available from such Third-Party Sites, or any fraud or other crime facilitated thereby.
