(a) Club 1 Hotels Connects you to Providers of Travel Services
The site is intended to facilitate your booking of hotel rooms and other travel related products from vendors that provide those product and services. Club 1 Hotels is not involved in providing the services. As a result, Club 1 Hotels has no control over the quality, safety, or legality of the products and services offered, nor the truth or accuracy of the listings, or the availability of the vendors to offer services. In the event that you have a dispute with one or more vendors, you release Club 1 Hotels (and its officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind of nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out, or, in any way, connected with such disputes.
We do not guarantee the accuracy of lodging ratings on the site. While we provide what we consider appropriate ratings, these are intended merely as guidelines and not as any form of guarantee. Lodging providers are constantly making changes and renovating their products. Although we attempt to keep the site updated, we do not guarantee the accuracy of any ratings on the site nor do we make any guarantee that the lodging establishment is not undergoing any renovations. Ratings provided are intended to provide a single qualitative assessment of the entire property or service. Individual rooms or components of a provider’s offering may better or worse than implied in the rating.
(c) No Representation or Warranty
Club 1 Hotels makes no representation or warranty of any kind, either express or implied, as to whether (1) a vendor is licensed or authorized to provide the products or services it is offering; (2) the quality, identity or reliability of any vendor; (3) the fairness of any terms and conditions, including price, offered by a vendor; (4) any of the information provided by a vendor is accurate; or (5) a vendor is in good financial condition or has good reputation and business practices; and (6) and the vendor will be operating at the reserved time.

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 equal to applicable nightly rates, tax recovery charges, and service fees. In the event you do not show up 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.
(h) International Travel
You are responsible for ensuring that you meet foreign entry requirements and that your travel documents, such as passport and visas (transit, business, tourist, and otherwise), are in order and any other foreign entry requirements are met. Club 1 Hotels has no special knowledge regarding foreign entry requirements and travel documents. We urge members to review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements, and advisories issued by the relevant governments prior to booking travel to international destinations.
Passport and Visa: You must consult the relevant Embassy or Consulate for this information. Requirements may change and you should check for up-to-date information before booking and departure. We accept no liability if you are refused entry onto a flight or into any country due to your failure to carry the correct and adequate passport, visa, or other travel documents required by any airline, authority, or country, including countries you may just be transiting through. This includes all stops made by the aircraft, even if you do not leave the aircraft or the airport.
Recommended inoculations for travel may change and you should consult your doctor for current recommendations before you depart.

22. Tax Recovery and Booking Fee
Club 1 Hotels does not collect taxes for remittance to applicable taxing authorities. The tax recovery charges on prepaid hotel transactions are a recovery of the estimated taxes (e.g. sales and use, occupancy, room tax, excise tax, value added tax, etc.) that Club 1 Hotels pays to the hotel supplier for taxes due on the hotels’ rental rate for the room. The hotel suppliers invoice Club 1 Hotels for certain charges, including tax amounts. The hotel suppliers are responsible for remitting applicable taxes to the applicable tax jurisdictions. Club 1 Hotels does not act as co-vendor with the supplier with whom we book or reserve our members’ travel arrangements. Taxability and the appropriate tax rate vary greatly by location. The actual tax amounts paid by Club 1 Hotels to the hotel suppliers may vary from the tax recovery charge amounts, depending upon the rates, taxability, etc. in effect at the time of the actual use of the hotel by our members. We retain booking fees for facilitating exclusive wholesale rates resulting in substantial savings for our Members.
