Terms & Conditions of Use

 

Travel Is The Point. (as referenced herein and in “Privacy Policy”) shall not be liable for failure of travel service provided by the booked airline (carrier) or hotel. We do not guarantee or insure the services to be provided by any supplier, the financial position of such suppliers or the reimbursement to you from any loss experienced as a result of the financial condition of such supplier. In the event an airline defaults prior to providing the service to you for which payment has been made, the sole recourse for refund shall be with the defaulting supplier, from insurance covering such defaults if any or from other responsible third parties.

In those situations in which a supplier defaults prior to providing services you may pursue any recourse against the supplier for refund, which may be permitted by law or statute.

Except as expressly stated herein, Travel Is The Point. assumes no responsibility for actions relating to travel services beyond the control of Travel Is The Point. or its contractors, consultants and associated business. Travel Is The Point. and its associated business are not responsible or liable for any act, error, omission, injury, loss, accident, damage, delay, nonperformance, irregularity, or any consequence thereof, which may be occasioned through neglect, or default or any other act or inaction of any supplier of travel products. Travel Is The Point. shall not be liable for any change in schedule or equipment, which occurs subsequent to payment for such service.

Travel Is The Point. acts as a service bureau that provides value added services to consumers for their booking of their award travel. To facilitate Travel Is The Point. and its associated business to provide such value added services to and for you, you authorize Travel Is The Point. and/or its associated business to contact those carriers’, and other related entities’ sites, in order to access and/or create necessary frequent flyer accounts under your name which contain data necessary or convenient to provide you your value added services as you request. Neither Travel Is The Point. nor its associated business shall take any action in relation to the acquisition of any product of any nature; you retain sole authority to act or omit to act in relation to any and all acquisitions.

Once tickets have been issued there may be a penalty involved for mileage refunds. If you choose to cancel your trip we will provide advice on the best way to request a mileage refund and the cheapest way to redeposit those miles. However, we cannot issue any refunds for the fees charged for our service. Each itinerary can take hours for us to prepare and it would not be fair to refund those fees because you’ve decided to change your plans. Additionally, if you decide to change your destinations we would love to assist, but a new booking fee will be charged.

Airline agents do sometimes make entry errors including improper trip dates, routings, birthdays, and names. If any of these occur, we will work our hardest to restore your itinerary back to what was originally confirmed. However, we cannot accept liability for any issues associated with these types of errors. Additionally, we will not be liable for any costs beyond the fees paid.

Please note that a non-refundable $25 “goodwill” search fee applies for all award booking and mileage run requests. The $25 fee will be deducted from your final invoice should you choose to book your trip with us. If not, the fee is non-refundable.

We sell no miles and advise our clients against working with any third-party agencies that broker miles or otherwise violate the terms of the respective frequent flyer program. Mileage run estimates are based on currently available public information to all members and may change prior to your trip. Any estimates are based on the mileage and dollar earning rates at the time of booking. We cannot guarantee the proper crediting of miles or qualifying dollars, but we will work with the airlines on your behalf should a posting error occur.

Fees & Payments

Initial access and use of our service is free. At any time, we may choose to charge fees for various premium features and services, and we will notify you of those charges at the time that we offer features and services for a fee. We may, in our sole discretion, and by notifying you on our Services, change this policy and begin charging for access to our Services and other features and services, and we may, in our sole discretion, add, remove or change the features and services we offer or the fees (including the amount and type of fees) we charge at any time. If we introduce a new service or charge a new fee, we will establish and notify you of the fees for that service at the launch of the service or start of charging a new fee. If we notify you of new fees or changes to fees for an existing service, then you agree to pay all fees and charges specified and all applicable taxes for your continued use of the applicable service.

Billing and Cancellation

    • Price Changes. We reserve the right to adjust pricing for our service or any components thereof in any manner and at any time as we may determine in our sole and absolute discretion. Except as otherwise expressly provided for in these Terms of Use, any price changes to your service will take effect following email notice to you.
    • No Refunds. PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your current billing period. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members ("credits"). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.
    • Payment Methods. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your account (see, "Cancellation" below), you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or other charges. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.
    • Cancellation. You may cancel your Points & Miles consulting membership at any time, and you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your 6 month billing period. WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL MEMBERSHIP PERIODS. To cancel, simply email us your request to do so at sales@travelisthepoint.com. This request will be acknowledged within 72 hours at which point, once acknowledged you will be notified via email.
