TERMS, CONDITIONS AND WARRANTIES

Prepaid Hotel Transactions

You agree that your credit card will be charged for the full cost of your reservation upon submitting your reservation request. The cost of your reservation is the total of the indicated room rate multiplied by the number of days in your reservation, plus an additional amount for the tax recovery charges and our service fees. The tax recovery charge is assessed to recover the amount we pay to the hotel in connection with your reservation for sales and use, occupancy room tax, excise tax, value added and other similar taxes, and the balance of the additional amount is a fee we charge in connection with the handling of your reservation. Our service fee varies based on the amount and location of your reservation.

We are not the vendor collecting and remitting said tax to the applicable tax authorities. The vendors bill all applicable taxes to us and we remit such tax directly to the vendor. We are not a co-vendor associated with the vendor with whom we book or reserve our customer's travel arrangements. Taxability and the appropriate tax rate vary greatly by location. Our actual tax cost paid to the vendor may vary from the tax recovery charge, depending upon the rates, taxability, etc., in effect at the time of the actual use of the hotel, automobile, etc., by our customer.

You may cancel or change your prepaid reservation, but you will be charged the cancellation or change fee indicated on the reservation order form. In addition, 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 of one night's room rate, tax recovery charges and service fees. No refunds will be made for no-shows or early checkouts. See the hotel description for the cancellation policy period for each hotel. You agree to pay any cancellation or change fee that you incur. In some cases, hotels do not permit changes to or cancellations of reservations after they are made, generally for stays during holiday periods or special events. You will be notified before the reservation order is completed and your credit card is charged if a reservation is non-refundable or non-changeable. You agree to abide by the terms and conditions imposed with respect to any conditions imposed with respect to any completed reservation order for a hotel stay as specified on the reservation order form.

The Company attempts to secure the best hotel rates available. The Company's guarantee provides limited assurance that our rates on prepaid hotel transactions are the lowest rates available. If a lower room rate is available to you for the same dates and the same hotel within 24 hours of the time you booked and prepaid your reservation and you contact us within that 24-hour period, we will either refund the difference or cancel your reservation without cancellation fee or other charge. This guarantee does not apply to special events such as New Year's Eve and the Super Bowl or to non-refundable or non-changeable reservations.

Travel Destinations

Although most travel, including travel to international destinations, is completed without incident, travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than others. CITIES.COM urges passengers to review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements and advisories issued by the United States Government prior to booking travel to international destinations. Information on conditions in various countries and the level of risk associated with travel to particular international destinations can be found at www.state.gov, www.tsa.gov, www.dot.gov, www.faa.gov, www.cdc.gov, www.treas.gov/ofac and www.customs.gov.

BY OFFERING FOR SALE TRAVEL TO PARTICULAR INTERNATIONAL DESTINATIONS, CITIES.COM DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT TRAVEL TO SUCH POINTS IS ADVISABLE OR WITHOUT RISK, AND IS NOT LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OR LOSSES THAT MAY RESULT FROM TRAVEL TO SUCH DESTINATIONS.
