2. Description of the Service
TROVEL offers an information system on trips, touristic experiences and services related to the premium tourism industry or high end products, that comply with the standards of the TROVEL brand, from now onwards referred to as “services”.
TROVEL is a commercial and fantasy name and TROVEL.COM is also a comercial and fantasy name with a technical nature. In both cases, the rights are held by TROVEL.
We understand “suppliers” as companies who distribute TROVEL products such as hotels, airlines and stores, among others. Also, TROVEL understands “product” as any article that is available on the website.
TROVEL acts as an intermediary between the website users and suppliers. When using the website to obtain any of our services available online, the contract will directly take place between the user and corresponding provider
3.How the Service Operates
TROVEL.COM allows free and open access (beyond derived costs, in this case, from access to Internet), without the need of providing personal data or any monetary compensation.
Prices are negotiated between TROVEL and the provider, thus the price offered by the provider in other sources may vary. All of the prices exclusively comprehend the services that are detailed and are orientative estimations, all subject to diverse variables that are associated to the product like possible modifications due to different causes, such as changes in the price of fuel, season or travel dates, categories and variations in the types of monetary exchange, fairs, rates and taxes (for boarding and departing, landing, staying), among other reasons.
3.1.1 Currency Converter
The currency that prices are expressed on the website are based on the place of origin of the provider. For this reason, the prices that prevail are always those shown in the local currency of the country of the provider involved. However, there is always the possibility of selecting a different currency proposed by TROVEL where the user can see prices and/or proceed with payments.
Nevertheless, the types of exchange rates used are extracted from public sources and/pr suppliers and, even though these are updated daily, can only be used as an orientation. The exactness of the fairs indicated is not guaranteed as in many cases fairs vary. If the customer has the intention of using this information with a financial purpose, TROVEL recommends that the customer request professional assessment to ensure the precision behind the exchange rates. TROVEL and our affiliates and suppliers do not authorize the use of this information for other purposes besides those of a private customer. To the extent in which the law contemplates, the reselling and redistribution of TROVEL’s products and services is forbidden.
3.2 Purchase Process
Purchases of products that are included in the website are ruled by the current Terms and Conditions and the particular conditions of the corresponding provider of the established product in each case. These particular conditions will be present and available throughout the reservation process. These conditions can apply especially, but without being limited to, what concerns payment policies, cancellations, payment currency and use of installations.
Some of the products on the website present the option of paying a guarantee deposit that is necessary to manage, proceed and validate the reservation, depending on the conditions negotiated with the suppliers. This deposit will be charged by Trovel Premium Community. TROVEL will not be responsible for any types of commissions that the bank may charge to the customer for using their services, such as commissions for bank transfers, exchange rates, credit or debit cards. Once the purchase of the product is confirmed, users must unconditionally and irrevocably facilitate their personal information to the provider of the hired services, with the variants and modalities that, in their case, are determined. Afterwards, a confirmation and/or reservation voucher will be sent via e-mail to the customer. It is requested that the user read and closely check that all of the information contained is correct in order to make sure that it is adapted to the user’s needs.
In the case that the purchase by the user is rejected by the provider, TROVEL will do everything possible to find an alternative product that satisfies the user, allowing the user to accept or decline the alternative product freely.
3.3 Fidelity Program
In the case that the user purchase a product from a provider that offers a fidelity program external to TROVEL, there is no guarantee that the benefits of the associated program can be attributed or claimed by the user afterwards. Points, vouchers or gift cards that are not a TROVEL initiative will not be accepted.
Budgets are information on price and availability at the time of the request. There can be variations of these factors throughout the decision process of the customer, without the guarantee of being able to recover the previous prices.
3.5 Modification and Finalization
The provider reserves the right to modify the content of the website and the conditions of the product for justified causes. In the same manner, the provider reserves the right to terminate the use of this service at any given moment. The functioning of these mentioned variations will be done on prior notice to the participants and members.
3.6 Cancellation and Returns
Each product counts on its own cancellation or non acceptance conditions. The consumer has the right to not accept a contracted trip at any moment before departure. If the customer wishes to cancel a purchase, a written email message requesting the cancellation must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Villas, trips around the world, circuits, flights and products from the Boutique are non-refundable, cannot be canceled and are therefore not subject to refunds in any case.
However, for the rest of products, cancellations can be produced 15 days prior to departure. The client will have to pay a penalization depending on the days left for departure according to the following:
- A 5% on the total price of the trip if the cancellation is requested over 10 days and less than 15 days prior to departure.
- A 15% on the total price of the trip if the cancellation is requested between 10 and 3 days prior to departure.
- A 25% of the total price of the trip if the cancellation is requested 48 hours before departure.
If the correct price of the article was greater than the indicated price, TROVEL would get in contact with the client to notify the client of the correct price before sending and/or cancelling the order.
3.7 Visas and Trip Documentation
TROVEL highly recommends that prohibitions, warning, written communications and published reports by the governmental authorities and competent public organisms be consulted before reserving any trip.
TROVEL suggests that the client inform him or herself on the what is requested by the destination country in order to enter before reserving. During the trip, the confirmation email and/or vouture along with a personal ID or valid passport will be requested.
It is not TROVEL’s responsibility to manage vaccines, visas, passports or other necessary documents or requirements to enter the destination.
