If your booking or account shows signs of fraud, abuse or suspicious activity, Book A Motel may cancel any travel or service reservations associated with your name, email address or account, and close any associated accounts. In addition, we may verify (i.e. preauthorise) your credit card. If you have conducted any fraudulent activity, Book A Motel reserves the right to take any necessary legal action and you may be liable for monetary losses to Book A Motel, including litigation costs and damages. To contest the cancellation of a booking or freezing or closure of an account, please contact Book A Motel Customer Service.
The information displayed on this Website concerning specific travel products and services is provided to us by the relevant travel suppliers (such as motels and motor-inns) or their agents (“Third Party Suppliers”). This includes, but is not limited to, information about motel prices, rules and availability and the description of motels and their amenities. We are not responsible for such information and we rely on the accuracy of the information supplied by the relevant Third Party Suppliers. If we become aware that the information provided by a Third Party Supplier is incorrect in any way, we reserve the right to correct any information (including, but not limited to, pricing information) and amend your booking (in consultation with you) to ensure that it reflects the correct price or otherwise complies with the correct information. Additional charges may be payable by you if you wish to proceed with the affected booking. Such charges will be advised to you at the time of consultation.
Additional terms and conditions imposed by the Third Party Suppliers may also apply to your booking and purchase of travel-related products and services, and we will advise you of these additional terms and conditions where the relevant Third Party Supplier provides them to us. Please read such additional terms and conditions carefully. You agree to abide by the terms and conditions imposed by any Third Party Supplier with whom you elect to deal, including, but not limited to, terms and conditions relating to the payment of all amounts when due, and compliance with the relevant Third Party Supplier's rules and restrictions regarding availability and use of products or services. We reserve the right to cancel your booking if full payment is not received in a timely fashion. Some Third Party Suppliers offering certain services and/or activities may require you to sign their liability waiver prior to participating in the service and/or activity they offer. You understand that any violation of any such Third Party Supplier's rules and restrictions may result in cancellation of your booking(s), in your being denied access to the applicable travel services and/or activities, in your forfeiting any monies paid for such booking(s), and/or in our debiting your account for any costs we incur as a result of such violation. Book A Motel does not operate or control the travel-related products and services displayed on the Website. Nor does Book A Motel act as co-vendors with Third Party Suppliers with whom our customers book travel products or services.
Some accommodation providers may require you to present a credit card or cash deposit upon check-in to cover any additional expenses that may be incurred during your stay. You are responsible for the payment of any additional expenses, and any deposit taken or amounts charged to your credit card by the relevant accommodation provider are unrelated to any payment made through the Website for your hotel booking.
With certain motels, you may be presented with the option to pay online now ("Pay Online Now") or pay later at the motel ("Pay Later at Motel"). If you select the Pay Online Now option, your credit card will be charged immediately. If you select “Pay Later at Motel”, the motel will charge your credit card in the local currency at the time of your stay. Please note that for a Pay Later at Motel booking, tax rates and foreign exchange rates could change in the time between booking and stay. Your credit card provider may also charge a foreign currency conversion fee.
Pay Later at Motel is a postpaid motel reservation. In the event that you book a postpaid motel reservation, you acknowledge and agree that the total quoted price will be payable by you to the accommodation provider at the time requested by the accommodation provider (usually upon check-in or check-out from the accommodation). The accommodation provider may charge you additional costs for expenses incurred during your stay. If you wish to cancel or change your booking, you must notify us within the cancellation policy period applicable to the relevant motel (which varies by motel), or you will be charged the full cost of your stay. In the event you do not show up for the first night of the booking and plan to check-in for subsequent nights in your booking, you must confirm the booking changes with us no later than the date of the first night of the booking to prevent cancellation of your booking. You are responsible for any cancellation or change fees that you incur. Some motels do not permit changes to or cancellations of bookings after they are made, as indicated in the rules and restrictions for the motel booking.
Pay Online Now is a prepaid motel reservation. In the event that you book a prepaid motel reservation, you acknowledge that Book A Motel pre-negotiate certain room rates with motel suppliers to facilitate the booking of reservations for Pay Online Now bookings. You also acknowledge that we provide you services to facilitate such booking of reservations for a fee (the "facilitation fee"). For some prepaid motel reservations, one of our accommodation reservation partners may be the facilitator of your room reservation and also the merchant of record for your Pay Online Now booking. You authorise such accommodation reservation partner to facilitate reservations for the total reservation price, which includes the room rate displayed on the Website, plus any tax recovery charges, service fees, and where applicable, taxes on our services. You agree that your credit card will be charged for the total reservation price. Upon submitting your reservation request you authorise Book A Motel to facilitate motel reservations on your behalf, including making payment arrangements with motel suppliers.
You may cancel or change your prepaid motel reservation, but you will be charged the cancellation or change fee indicated in the rules and restrictions for the motel reservation (which may vary by motel). If you do not cancel or change your reservation before the cancellation policy period applicable to the motel you reserved, the full cost of your stay will be non-refundable. In the event you do not show for the first night of the reservation and plan to check-in for subsequent nights in your reservation, you must confirm the reservation changes with us no later than the date of the first night of the reservation to prevent cancellation of your reservation. You agree to pay any cancellation or change fees that you incur. Some motels do not permit changes to or cancellations of reservations after they are made, as indicated in the rules and restrictions for the motel reservation. You agree to make payment at the time of booking via a debit to your nominated credit or debit card. The amount charged will be the amount shown on our booking page prior to you clicking the Pay Online Now button on that page. Upon submitting your booking request, you authorise us to facilitate the relevant motel booking, including making payment arrangements with the relevant motel supplier.
You may not book reservations for more than 8 rooms online for the same hotel/stay dates. If we determine that you have booked reservations for more than 8 rooms in total in separate reservations, we may cancel your reservations, and charge you a cancellation fee, if applicable. If you paid a non-refundable deposit, your deposit will be forfeited. If you wish to book reservations for 9 or more rooms, you must contact us by email. One of our group travel specialists will research your request and contact you to complete your reservation. You may be asked to sign a written contract and/or pay a non-refundable deposit.
From time to time, special deals or vouchers may be displayed on this Website. Such special deals and vouchers are available for a limited time only. You must check with us as to whether a special displayed on this Website is still available.
Additional terms and conditions may apply to special deals or the use of vouchers. You must check this Website or the third party provider of the special deal to determine whether any particular terms and conditions apply.
If you want to change any details of your itinerary booked through the Website or the Service Centre (such as changing to a different motel or changing your departure date), we will do our best to help but cannot guarantee that changes will be permitted by the relevant Third Party Supplier. You should contact us by email.
Requests for a refund of monies paid for any travel products or services booked through the Website or the Service Centre will be governed by the terms and conditions of the relevant supplier, and Book A Motel is not responsible for, and does not have any control over, such terms and conditions.
We do not charge an amendment fee for changes made by you. However, the relevant Third Party Supplier may charge a fee in connection with any changes, which will be payable by you (if any). The price of your new arrangements will be based on the prices that apply on the day you ask us to make the change. These prices may not be the same as when you booked the products or services.
Many bank and credit/debit card companies charge their account holders a transaction fee when the card issuer and the "merchant location" (as defined by the card brand (e.g. Visa, MasterCard, American Express)) are in different countries. The currency exchange rate, if applicable, and any transaction fee are determined solely by the bank or other agency processing the transaction. These fees may be applied by the card issuer as a charge to the cardholders account. This means the amount listed on your credit or debit card statement may be a different figure than the figure shown on the billing summary page for a booking made on the Website. If you have any questions about these fees or any exchange rate applied to your booking, please contact your bank.
It is the responsibility of the traveller to ensure that he or she:
Passports are required for all travellers departing Australia, and for international travel generally. Many countries require that foreign nationals entering hold a passport that is valid for a minimum period after you enter that country, typically 6 months.
When purchasing air travel, the name on the passport must match the name on the ticket otherwise you may not be able to travel and insurance may be invalid. If, after purchasing products or services but before traveling, any member of your party changes their name you must notify the relevant carrier so that the necessary changes can be made to your documentation.
It is the responsibility of the traveller to obtain information and advice on the visa requirements of Australia prior to your proposed visit. Requirements may change and you should check for up to date information before booking and departure.
The above information and any links are provided in good faith but should be treated as a guide only. Passport and visa regulations can change and it is your responsibility to ensure that you possess the relevant travel documents before you travel. It can often take some time to obtain a passport and/or visa, so you are advised to apply in plenty of time. We accept no responsibility in any regard in relation thereto including, without limitation, for customers who do not possess the correct travel documents.
The Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade or any of its successors may be able to provide some assistance in relation to the passport and visa requirements for your destination.
Although most travel, including travel to international destinations, is completed without incident, travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than others. Travellers should review any travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements and advisories issued by the Commonwealth Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade 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 on the Australian Government's travel advisory and consular assistance service website currently located at http://www.smarttraveller.gov.au.
Health: Recommended inoculations for travel may change and you should consult your doctor for current recommendations before you depart. It is your responsibility to ensure that you meet all health entry requirements, obtain the recommended inoculations, take all recommended medication, and follow all medical advice in relation to your trip.
By offering reservations for travel products to particular destinations, Book A Motel 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.
