By accessing, browsing and using our (mobile) website or any of our applications through whatever platform (hereafter collectively referred to as the “website”) and/or by completing a transaction or service you acknowledge and agree to have read, understood and agreed to the Terms and Conditions set out below (including the privacy statement). These pages, the content and infrastructure of these pages, and the online reservation service provided on these pages and through the website are owned, operated and provided by The Travel Connoisseur and are provided for your personal, non-commercial use only, subject to the Terms and Conditions set out below. 0. Definitions “The Travel Connoisseur,” “TTC,” “us,” “we” or “our” means The Travel Connoisseur, a limited liability company incorporated under the laws of the United States, and having its registered mailing address at P.O. Box 222, North Carrollton, MS 38923. “Platform” means the (mobile) website and/or app on which the Service is made available owned, controlled, managed, maintained and/or hosted by TTC. “Service” means the online services (including the facilitation of payments through PayPal or Bitcoin) of various products and services as from time to time made available by TTC or Suppliers on the Platform. “Supplier” means the provider of accommodation (e.g. artist, chef, Private jet, hotel, motel, apartment, bed & breakfast, etc.), (attractions, sightseeing tours, cruises, transfers, tour operators, insurances, and any other travel and/or related product or service) as from time to time available for reservation on the Platform. 1. Scope of Our Service Through the Platform, we (The Travel Connoisseur and its affiliate (distribution) partners) provide an online platform through which Suppliers can advertise their products and services for purchase and/or reservation, and through which visitors to the Platform can make said purchase or reservation. By making a purchase/reservation through TTC, you enter into a direct (legally binding) contractual relationship with the Supplier with which you make a reservation or purchase a product or service (as applicable). From the point at which you make your purchase and/or reservation, we act solely as an intermediary between you and the Supplier, transmitting the details of your purchase/ reservation to the relevant Supplier(s) and sending you a confirmation email for and on behalf of the Supplier. When rendering our services, the information that we disclose is based on the information provided to us by Suppliers. As such, the Suppliers are given access to an Extranet through which they are fully responsible for updating all rates, availability and other information which is displayed on our Platform. Although we will use reasonable skill and care in performing our services we will not verify if, and cannot guarantee that, all information is accurate, complete or correct, nor can we be held responsible for any errors (including manifest and typographical errors), any interruptions (whether due to any (temporary and/or partial) breakdown, repair, upgrade or maintenance of our Platform or otherwise), inaccurate, misleading or untrue information or non-delivery of information. Each Supplier remains responsible at all times for the accuracy, completeness and correctness of the (descriptive) information (including the rates and availability) displayed on our Platform. Our Platform does not constitute and should not be regarded as a recommendation or endorsement of the quality, service level, qualification or (star) rating of any Supplier (or its facilities, venue, products or services) made available. Our Service is made available for personal and noncommercial use only. Therefore, you are not allowed to resell, deep-link, use, copy, monitor (e.g. spider, scrape), display, download or reproduce any content or information, software, reservations, tickets, products or services available on our Platform for any commercial or competitive activity or purpose. 2. Prices, Crossed-Out Rates and Best Price Guarantee The prices on our Platform are highly competitive. All service/ room prices are per service/room for the entire duration of rendered services or your entire stay and all prices are displayed including VAT/sales tax and all other taxes (subject to change of such taxes), unless stated differently on our Platform or the confirmation email/ticket. Ticket prices are per person or group and subject to validity as indicated on the ticket, if applicable. Applicable fees and taxes (including tourist/city tax) may be charged by the Supplier in the event of a no-show or cancellation fee. Applicable taxes may be charged by the accommodation in the event of a no-show or cancellation fee. Sometimes cheaper rates are available on our Platform for a specific stay, product or service, however, these rates made available by Suppliers may carry special restrictions and conditions, for example non-cancelable and non-refundable. Please check the relevant product, service and reservation conditions and details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your reservation. The crossed-out rate shown for rooms is based on the third highest current price of the Supplier for your product or service with the same service conditions in a 30-day window around your check-in date (15 days before and 15 days after check-in date; if less than 15 days are between today and the check-in date, we will use the corresponding number of days after the check-in date to result in a 30-day total). To ensure we are making a fair comparison, we always use the same reservation conditions (e.g. meal plan, cancellation policy and room type). This means that you get the same room for a lower price compared to other check-in dates at the same time of year. We want you to pay the lowest price possible for your stay. Should you find your accommodation, with the same reservation conditions, at a lower rate on the Internet after you have made a reservation through us, we will match the difference between our rate and the lower rate under the terms and conditions of the Best Price Guarantee, which applies solely to services and reservations offered by the affiliate Booking. com. The currency converter is for information purposes only and should not be relied upon as accurate and real time; actual rates may vary. Obvious errors and mistakes (including misprints) are not binding. All special offers and promotions are marked as such. 3. Privacy and Cookies The Travel Connoisseur respects your privacy. Please take a look at our Privacy Policy for further information. 4. Credit Card Payments Via Paypal or Bitcoin Payment is safely processed from your credit/debit card or bank account to the bank account of TTC or the Supplier through a third-party payment processor. In order to indemnify you, make sure that you report any fraud to your credit card provider (in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures) and contact us immediately by email (payments@thetravelconnoisseur.net). State “credit card fraud” in the subject line of your email and provide us with evidence of the charge deducted. This indemnification only applies to credit card reservations made using Paypal’s secure server, or Bitcoin wallet and the unauthorized use of your credit card resulted through our default or negligence, and through no fault of your own while using the secure server. 5. Prepayment, Cancellation, and No-shows Cancellation and prepayment policies may vary according to services. If you wish to review, adjust or cancel your services, please forward an email to (payments@thetravelconnoisseur.net). Please note that you may be charged for your cancellation in accordance with the accommodation provider’s cancellation, (pre)payment and no-show policy or not be entitled to any repayment of any (pre)paid amount. 6. (Further) Correspondence and Communication By completing a transaction for services, you agree to receive (i) an email which we may send you shortly prior to your arrival date, giving you information on your destination and providing you with certain information and offers (including third party offers to the extent that you have actively opted in for this information) relevant to your services or reservation and destination, and an email which we may send to you promptly after your stay inviting you to complete our guest review form. TTC disclaims any liability or responsibility for any communication with the Supplier on or through its platform. You cannot derive any rights from any request to, or communication with the Supplier or (any form of) acknowledgement of receipt of any communication or request.

In order to duly complete and secure your services or reservation, you need to use your correct contact information to include email address.

Any claim or complaint against The Travel Connoisseur or in respect to the service must be promptly submitted, but in any event within 30 days after the scheduled day of consummation of the product or service (e.g. check-out date). Any claim or complaint that’s submitted after the 30- day period may be rejected, and the claimant shall forfeit their right to any (damage or cost) compensation.
