TravelShack offers a variety of tours, activities, products, and services through its website (TravelShack.com). The terms "we", "us", "our" and "TravelShack" refer to TravelShack, LLC. The term "you" refers to the customer visiting the TravelShack website or booking a reservation through us.
These Terms & Conditions contain legal obligations, and your use of our website and your purchase or receipt of bookings from TravelShack are governed by these terms. By visiting the website or using the services in any manner, you agree that you have read and agree to be bound by and a party to all of these Terms & Conditions.
The person making the booking shall be deemed to have accepted these conditions on behalf of the persons named in the booking.
Any terms stated by TravelShack on its website, emails, or in any other written form that are for specific activities supersede any contradicting terms in this document.
No variation to these Terms & Conditions shall be of any effect unless made in writing by and with the authority of TravelShack. TravelShack may change these Terms & Conditions at any time by posting changes online.
You may not copy, reproduce, republish, download, post, broadcast, transmit, make available to the public, or otherwise use TravelShack.com content (inclusive of text, images, URLs, pricing information, etc.) in any way except for your own personal, non-commercial use. Any other use of TravelShack.com content requires the prior written permission of TravelShack.
You agree to use TravelShack.com only for lawful purposes, and in a way that does not infringe the rights of, restrict or inhibit anyone else's use and enjoyment of TravelShack.com.
Your use of TravelShack.com is intended for personal, noncommercial use and/or to make legitimate requests to book the products or services offered. You agree not to use this site to make any speculative, false or fraudulent requests. You agree not to use robots or other automated means to access this site, unless specifically permitted by TravelShack.
TravelShack does not guarantee the availability of activities. The booking calendars are generally accurate, but your booking is not complete until you receive an email explicitly stating that the booking has been confirmed. In some cases, the requested date/time may not be available, in which case you will be given the opportunity to request another date/time, or your booking request will be cancelled/refunded.
At the time of your activity date, you may be required to provide a form of identification and/or your TravelShack receipt (electronic is sufficient).
Requests for modifications/amendments should be directed to TravelShack, which will process the request, and are subject to availability. Change requests must be made prior to the stated cancellation cut-off stated for the activity. If necessary, any change requests made after the cancellation cut-off should be made directly with the vendor, and it may be declined with no refund given.
Occasionally our vendors make changes to dates, prices, inclusions, coverage, age requirements, etc. Although TravelShack makes a concerted effort to keep all the information on its site up-to-date, TravelShack reserves the right to cancel, change, or substitute any service, tour, voucher, or product that you have booked at TravelShack.com at any time for any reason, although an effort will be made to communicate such changes to all impacted customers if it's a substantive change. In such cases, if you are dissatisfied with the alternatives offered, you are entitled to a full refund of the original purchase price.
The cancellation policy varies by activity, and it is clearly stated on the activity page, the checkout page, and the confirmation email. Any cancellation requests, change requests, or no-shows after the cancellation cut-off time are non-refundable unless the vendor and TravelShack decides to make an exception for you, which they may on a case-by-case basis. If it is due to illness, you may be asked to provide a local doctor's note. Weather cancellations are always refundable or can be rescheduled pending availability.
If you cancel a booking and receive a refund, the number of reward points you earned for that booking will be subtracted from your available points balance. If you do not have enough points in your balance because you have already redeemed them for cashback or credit rewards, the equivalent amount for those redeemed rewards will be recharged to your card on file.
TravelShack strives to provide you the lowest booking price, as well as avoids hidden booking fees.
If you find a lower published price available to the public, we will attempt to match it or refund you the difference if you have already paid. Time-limited coupons or promotions do not count; only the selling price for the specific activity and details (e.g., date, time, group size) offered on TravelShack. You must report the better price before the non-cancellation period has commenced and certainly before completing the activity. TravelShack reserves the right to not match the other price and simply refund/cancel your booking if desired.
At the time of booking checkout, you are given the option to Pay Now or Pay Later. Either way you need to provide a valid credit card in order to make a booking. Pay Now means your card will be charged immediately; if any of it is refunded for any reason in the future, the 2.9% credit card fee not returned to TravelShack will be deducted from the refund. Pay Later means your card will be saved on file and charged closer to the activity date, usually about 5 days prior. If the charge fails, you will be invoiced to pay with a new credit card or your booking may be cancelled if you do not respond in a timely manner.
TravelShack's charge on your card statement will not include your activity's name (due to space constraints of your financial institution). If you are unclear what the charge is far, you are responsible for contacting us to inquire, although a quick search of your emails for TravelShack correspondence should provide that answer. The credit card dispute process is only intended as a last resort if you contact us and are unable to get your question or issue resolved in a timely manner (please allow 2-3 business days, although responses are usually much sooner). If you initiate a credit card dispute without contacting us, due to the additional time and financial risk that unfairly poses for our company, TravelShack reserves the right to tack on up to a 10% fee if you never contacted us first or your dispute is without merit, regardless of the outcome of the dispute process. There is abuse of the credit card dispute process which creates an unfair burden on small businesses like TravelShack, and this penalty is designed to deter unnecessary disputes and to recoup the loss of time and money caused by the dispute process, especially when TravelShack was at no fault.
TravelShack credit may only be used for future bookings.
Cashback will be applied to the customer's credit or debit card that was used for booking.
TravelShack reward points have no value outside of the TravelShack reward program, and the customer should not at any time expect to receive any form of compensation for unredeemed or redeemed points or rewards. TravelShack points and rewards are simply a gift, and they may be retracted at any time at the discretion of TravelShack.
Unredeemed points expire 14 days after the latest activity date.
The expiration of TravelShack credit is 1 year from when the points were earned.
Under no circumstances will TravelShack or its agents, affiliates, service providers, suppliers, and/or distributors be liable for any of the following losses or damage (whether such losses where foreseen, foreseeable, known or otherwise): (a) loss of data; (b) loss of revenue or anticipated profits; (c) loss of business; (d) loss of opportunity; (e) loss of goodwill or injury to reputation; (f) losses suffered by third parties; or (g) any indirect, consequential, special or exemplary damages arising from the use of TravelShack.com regardless of the form of action.
