5. Making a reservation
5.1. Payment and confirmation of a reservation
5.1.1. After creating your PLAN IT SMARTER account, you can book a service available on this website by following the corresponding booking process. You must use a credit card or PayPal to guarantee the reservation. By making a reservation with your credit card or PayPal, you agree to accept the relevant cancellation and no-show policy of the travel service provider, as set out in its terms and conditions.
5.1.2. Upon receipt of the booking confirmation from PLAN IT SMARTER, a legally binding agreement is formed between you and the supplier, subject to the supplier's additional terms and conditions that apply, including in particular the applicable cancellation policy and the restrictions specified in the offer.Si vous réservez le service d’un fournisseur pour le compte de voyageurs supplémentaires, vous devez vous assurer que chaque voyageur supplémentaire répond aux exigences définies par le fournisseur, et est informé de ces conditions et de leur acceptation, ainsi que de toutes les conditions générales, règles, conditions et restrictions définies par le fournisseur. Si vous réservez pour un voyageur supplémentaire qui est mineur, vous déclarez et garantissez que vous êtes légalement autorisé à agir en son nom. Les mineurs ne peuvent participer à une expérience, à un événement ou à un autre service que s'ils sont accompagnés par un adulte responsable.
5.2. Service fees
5.2.1. PLAN IT SMARTER may charge travellers a fee ("Service Fee") for its use or if the Flexible Booking option is chosen when booking through this website. All applicable Administrative Charges (including applicable taxes) will be displayed to the Traveller prior to booking a service. PLAN IT SMARTER reserves the right to change the administrative fees at any time, and will notify members in a timely manner of any changes to the fees before they take effect. These fee changes will not affect bookings made prior to the effective date of the fee change.
5.2.2. You are responsible for the payment of the service fees that you owe to PLAN IT SMARTER. The applicable service fees (including applicable taxes) are collected by PLAN IT SMARTER. All service fees are included in the balance of the cost of your reservation. Unless otherwise stated on this website, the service fee is non-refundable.
5.3. Bank and credit card charges
5.3.1. Many banks and credit card companies charge their account holders a transaction fee when the card issuer and the "merchant location"' (depending on the term used by different card issuers, e.g. Visa, MasterCard and American Express) are in different countries. The exchange rate, if applicable, and the transaction fee are determined solely by the bank or entity processing the transaction. These fees may be applied by the card issuer as a charge to the cardholder's account. When applied by the card issuer, these fees and the amount of the transaction are shown separately on the credit or debit card statement. This means that the amount shown on your credit or debit card statement may differ from the amount shown in the billing summary for a reservation made on the website. If you have any questions about these fees or the exchange rate applied to your reservation, please contact your bank.
5.4. Currency converter
5.4.1. If the website contains a currency converter, the following terms and conditions apply: the exchange rates indicated are taken from various public sources and are given for information purposes only. The accuracy of the rates is not verified, and the rates shown may differ from current rates. Currency rates are not updated daily. Check the date of the last update on the currency converter. The information provided by this application is believed to be accurate, but PLAN IT SMARTER, PLAN IT SMARTER's affiliates and their respective suppliers make no representation or warranty as to its accuracy. Clients using the information obtained through the currency converter for financial purposes are advised to check exchange rates with a licensed professional. We prohibit the use of this information for any purpose other than personal use and expressly prohibit the resale, redistribution and commercial use of this information.
5.5. Rounding of amounts
5.5.1. PLAN IT SMARTER generally supports amounts payable to suppliers at the smallest unit supported by a given currency (e.g. US cents, euro cents or other supported currencies). When PLAN IT SMARTER's third-party payment provider does not support payments in the smallest unit supported by a given currency, PLAN IT SMARTER may, at its sole discretion, round the posted amounts payable to vendors to the nearest whole functional base units in which the currency is denominated (i.e., dollars, euros, or other supported currency). For example, PLAN IT SMARTER may round an amount from $101.50 to $102.00 and round a lower amount from $101.49 to $101.00.
5.6. PLAN IT SMARTER credits
5.6.1. In certain cases or special promotions, PLAN IT SMARTER may issue credits to travellers. PLAN IT SMARTER credits can be used for eligible bookings through this website, as specified in the terms and conditions provided with the credit.
5.6.2. You can only redeem PLAN IT SMARTER Credits after they appear on your PLAN IT SMARTER account. The credit cannot be applied to an account not associated with the email address of the reservation. To use your PLAN IT SMARTER credits, please login to your account on this website and make a reservation. Your credit will be automatically applied to your reservation, once the reservation is confirmed.
5.6.3. PLAN IT SMARTER credits can only be used once and within six (6) months from the date they were issued, after which they will be lost.
5.7. Rules and restrictions affecting suppliers
5.7.1. Additional terms and conditions will apply to reservations and purchases of travel services you have selected. Please read these additional terms and conditions carefully as they are mentioned on the supplier's offer page. You agree to abide by the terms and conditions of purchase imposed by any supplier with whom you choose to do business, including payment of any amounts when due, and to abide by the supplier's rules and restrictions regarding the availability and use of fares and services.
5.7.2. The air fare is guaranteed only when the purchase has been made and the tickets have been issued. Airlines and other travel suppliers may change their prices without notice.
5.7.3. Prices and charges for some low-cost flights from overseas may be in another currency (e.g. EUR), for which we will provide an estimated equivalence in the default currency of this website, or selected preferred currency (if applicable). The actual amount charged by the low-cost airline may vary slightly due to variations in the rates applied by different currency card issuers. In addition, your statement may include a conversion or transaction fee (which may be in a foreign currency) charged by your card issuer to process the transaction. We are not associated with these additional fees and will not be responsible for any fees associated with various exchange rates and card issuer fees.
5.7.4. We reserve the right to cancel your reservation if full payment is not received in a timely manner.
5.7.5. Some hotel providers may require you to present a credit card or a cash deposit at the time of hotel check-in to cover additional costs incurred during your stay. This deposit is unrelated to the payments received by PLAN IT SMARTER for your hotel room reservation from the supplier.
5.7.6. PLAN IT SMARTER is not responsible for relocation costs.
5.7.7. You acknowledge that certain third-party providers who offer certain services and/or activities may require you to sign a disclaimer before you can benefit from a service or activity they offer. You understand that any violation of any such rule or restriction by a supplier may result in the cancellation of your reservation(s), a ban on access to applicable travel products or services, the forfeiture of any monies paid for such reservations and the debiting of your account for any costs we may incur as a result of such violation.
5.7.8. PLAN IT SMARTER can offer customers the possibility to make a reservation for a set of two one-way tickets instead of one return ticket through its online flight comparator. One-way ticket packages can offer a greater choice of flights, are often less expensive and can be from the same or different carriers. Unlike round-trip tickets, each one-way ticket is subject to its own rules, restrictions and fees. If one of the flights changes air carriers (e.g., due to cancellation or schedule change) and requires the customer to change their ticket for the other flight, the customer will be responsible for the charges for any changes made for the flight that is not changed.
5.8. Customer's liability for international travel
5.8.1. It is your responsibility to ensure that your travel documents, such as passports and visas (transit, business, tourist and other), are in good order and that the conditions for entry into the foreign country are met. PLAN IT SMARTER does not have any special knowledge about the conditions of entry of foreign countries or the required travel documents. We strongly recommend that clients consult the prohibitions, warnings and miscellaneous notices issued by the governments concerned before making reservations for foreign travel.
5.8.2. Passport and Visa
188.8.131.52. You should consult the embassy or consulate of the country in question for this information. Requirements are subject to change and you should check for up-to-date information before making a reservation and before departure. We accept no responsibility if you are refused entry on an aircraft or into a country because you do not present a correct and adequate passport, visa or other travel documents required by any airline, authority or country, including countries in which you are merely stopping for a connection. This includes all stops on the plane, even if you do not leave the plane or airport.
184.108.40.206. Recommended travel vaccines may change and you should consult your doctor for current recommendations before departure. It is your responsibility to ensure that you meet all health requirements for entry, obtain all recommended immunizations, bring all recommended medications and follow all medical advice pertaining to your trip.
5.8.4. Travel Insurance
220.127.116.11. It is strongly recommended that travellers add travel insurance when planning any trip abroad, including cancellation insurance, for damage or loss of luggage and medical expenses abroad. Please note that the Flexible Standard Booking option available on this website is not and cannot be used as cancellation insurance for your booking as it does not cover damage to or loss of baggage, medical expenses or any other item not related to the services contained in your shopping basket at the time of booking.
5.8.5. BY OFFERING RESERVATIONS FOR TRAVEL SERVICES TO A PARTICULAR INTERNATIONAL DESTINATION, PLAN IT SMARTER DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT TRAVEL TO SUCH A DESTINATION IS ADVISABLE OR RISK-FREE AND IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE OR LOSS THAT MAY RESULT FROM TRAVEL TO SUCH A DESTINATION.
