The prices as offered by the Trip Providers on our Platform are highly competitive. All prices for your Trip are displayed including GST, VAT/sales tax and all other taxes (subject to change of such taxes) and fees unless stated differently on our Platform or the confirmation email/ticket. Ticket prices are per person or group and subject to validity or expiration as indicated on the ticket, if applicable. Applicable fees and taxes (including tourist/city tax) may be charged by the Trip Provider in the event of a no-show or cancellation.

Sometimes cheaper rates are available on our Platform for a specific stay, product or service, however, these rates made available by Trip Providers 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 Tour is solely based on the Supplier keeping our Best Price Guarantee policy in consideration. This means that you get the same Trip for a lower price compared to other time of year.

We want you to pay the lowest price possible for your product and service of choice. Should you find your Tour of choice booked through the Platform, with the same Trip 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 We Price Match. Our We Price Match Promise does not apply to non-Tours related products and services. To ensure we are making a fair comparison, we always use the same Trip conditions (e.g. cancellation policy, ancillary products (such as meal plan, Transport) and Trip type).

Obvious errors and mistakes (including misprints) are not binding.

All special offers and promotions are marked as such. If they are not labelled as such, you cannot derive any rights in the event of obvious errors or mistakes.

These credits are based on the tour you book and they are deposited into your AdventureRepubliq account within 6-9 days after the completion of your tour. You must be signed in to your AdventureRepubliq account to use your travel credits. These credits can be used to book any tour directly with AdventureRepubliq. Travel credits are non-refundable.

5.0 Currency

As part of the Services, AdventureRepubliq may provide a feature through which Members may view Payment for various Listings in foreign currencies. You understand and agree that these views of Payment are for informational purposes only and are not the official Payment for the Listings. If you (as a Traveller) request a booking, you will be notified of the currency in which you will be charged together with the corresponding amount of Payment, if your booking is confirmed by an Operator. The currency in which you will be charged may be determined by AdventureRepubliq based on the payment method you select and the location of the Group Tour in the Listing you are booking. If the currency in which you will be charged is different from the currency chosen by the Operator to receive payment, AdventureRepubliq will be responsible for the required currency conversion processing, including the costs thereof, which will be calculated based on the most current applicable foreign exchange rate that AdventureRepubliq has uploaded to the Site as of the date and time that your booking is confirmed (the “Applicable Exchange Rate”). You acknowledge that the Applicable Exchange Rate used for currency conversion processing may not be identical to the applicable market rate in effect at the specific time such processing occurs because: (i) although AdventureRepubliq would update the Applicable Exchange Rate on a regular basis, it would not update such rate on a real-time basis; and (ii) the Applicable Exchange Rate may include an incremental cost or margin that is not included in the applicable market rate. For the avoidance of doubt, AdventureRepubliq would retain any profits (and will bear any losses) that result from such currency conversion processing due to changes in the applicable foreign exchange rate.

6.0 Changes of these Business Terms of Use

These Business Terms of Use may be changed by AdventureRepubliq at any time and with immediate effect, without any prior notice. For each booking of a Product, the prevailing Business Terms of Use relevant at the time of such booking shall take effect.

7.0 General

The failure of AdventureRepubliq to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of AdventureRepubliq. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
