Travelzoo Membership Types and Membership Fee Billing Cycles
Travelzoo will provide information on its then-current Travelzoo Membership types and requirements on the Travelzoo website and/or by other means through the Travelzoo Services. All features of the Services and prices are subject to change in compliance with applicable laws.
Billing Cycles and Auto-Renewal
For first time Members, billing occurs at the time of sign up for their Travelzoo Membership. You agree to pay the price stated at the time of your order, as well as any applicable taxes. At the time of the first sign up, the Member will automatically be signed up for a recurring Travelzoo Membership and will be billed for subsequent Membership terms at the start of each such subsequent Membership term, unless the Member cancels their Membership in accordance with these Terms. Where required by applicable law, we will send you a reminder through the Services before your Membership term renews. You agree to the billing frequency stated at the time of your order.
All prices are in United States Dollars or another currency specified by Travelzoo at the time of purchase, which may depend on your billing address. Applicable taxes may vary based on the jurisdiction. We may not be able to notify you in advance of changes in applicable taxes.
You authorize Travelzoo and/or any of its payment processors (such as Stripe) to charge your Membership fee and any applicable taxes on or after the date you purchase your Membership or after your free trial ends (if applicable). Your Membership will automatically continue at the selected interval, and you will continue to be charged at the stated price (including any applicable taxes), unless prior to the end of the current Membership period: (a) you terminate your account; (b) you cancel your Membership in accordance with the Termination or Cancellation of Membership section below; (c) we decline to renew your Membership; or (d) these Terms are otherwise properly terminated as expressly permitted herein. Further details regarding cancellation are included below. As noted, we may change Membership terms or Membership fees at any time on a go forward basis in our sole discretion.
The Travelzoo Membership typically recurs on an annual basis (however, Membership may recur on a different basis depending on what option is offered by Travelzoo and selected by the Member at the time of sign-up) until it is cancelled in accordance with these Terms. Billing occurs at the beginning of the Membership cycle and the Member will then be able to access/receive the Travelzoo Services for one (1) year thereafter (or such shorter or longer period from the date of term renewal as agreed at the time of sign-up). By purchasing a Travelzoo Membership, you acknowledge that your Travelzoo Membership has a recurring payment feature, and you accept responsibility for all recurring payment obligations prior to the cancellation of your membership by you or Travelzoo (pursuant to the Termination or Cancellation of Membership section below).Travelzoo may offer promotions or discounts related to the Travelzoo Membership from time to time. Please read the details of those offers carefully, as any additional terms presented to you during the sign-up process will form part of these Terms. Unless specified in writing, all discount offers that require a payment are non-refundable. Any free trial or other promotion must be used within the specified time frame of the trial or promotion. You may be required to have a valid payment method on file in order to initiate a free trial; in this case, if you do not cancel before your free trial period ends, your account will be converted to a paid Travelzoo Membership and will be charged in accordance with these Terms.
UNLESS YOU NOTIFY US OF YOUR DESIRE TO CANCEL YOUR MEMBERSHIP (IN ACCORDANCE WITH TERMINATION OR CANCELLATION OF MEMBERSHIP SECTION BELOW), YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOUR MEMBERSHIP WILL AUTOMATICALLY CONTINUE AND YOU AUTHORIZE TRAVELZOO TO AUTOMATICALLY CHARGE YOUR SELECTED PAYMENT METHOD FOR THE AMOUNT OF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION FEE AND ANY TAXES FOR THE MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL TERM.
UPON RENEWAL OF YOUR MEMBERSHIP, IF TRAVELZOO DOES NOT RECEIVE PAYMENT FROM YOU, YOU AUTHORIZE US TO (A) CHARGE ANY OTHER PAYMENT METHOD WE HAVE ON FILE IN YOUR TRAVELZOO ACCOUNT AND/OR (B) CONTINUE ATTEMPTING TO CHARGE YOUR ORIGINAL PAYMENT METHOD UNTIL SUCH TIME AS PAYMENT IS RECEIVED. YOU REMAIN RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY UNCOLLECTED AMOUNTS. IF A MEMBERSHIP FEE PAYMENT IS NOT SUCCESSFULLY SETTLED, DUE TO EXPIRATION, INSUFFICIENT FUNDS, OR OTHERWISE, AND YOU DO NOT CANCEL YOUR TRAVELZOO MEMBERSHIP IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TERMINATION OR CANCELLATION OF MEMBERSHIP SECTION BELOW, WE MAY CANCEL OR SUSPEND YOUR TRAVELZOO MEMBERSHIP UNTIL WE HAVE SUCCESSFULLY CHARGED A VALID PAYMENT METHOD. WHERE TRAVELZOO TERMINATES OR SUSPENDS YOUR MEMBERSHIP DUE TO FAILURE TO MAKE A PAYMENT WHEN DUE, TRAVELZOO MAY, UPON RECEIPT OF ALL OUTSTANDING PAYMENTS DUE, REACTIVATE YOUR ACCOUNT FOR THE APPLICABLE MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL TERM.
Subscriptions and other purchases through a third party (e.g., Google Play or iOS) are managed directly by the applicable third party. You should consult with the appropriate third party to determine if the price charged includes all applicable taxes and currency exchange settlements. You are solely responsible for paying such taxes or other charges. Those third parties collect one-time and Membership fees, manage the Membership, and report to us on the status of Membership accounts that have been purchased from them. We do not have the ability to initiate, cancel, or refund such a third-party Membership on your behalf, but we do have the ability to make changes to your Membership entitlements in connection with such third-party Membership (for example, by turning off your entitlement to a Membership if you canceled it through a third-party).
Membership fees for Travelzoo Membership are non-refundable except as otherwise expressly described in these Terms or as required by applicable law. If you reside in the United Kingdom or a member state of the European Union, please consult the section below titled Statutory Cancellation Rights (Certain Jurisdictions Only).
Travelzoo may from time to time change Membership prices, including recurring Membership fees and any other fees applicable to your Travelzoo Membership. Travelzoo will inform you of any price changes in advance, including the effective date of such changes, and, if applicable, how to accept those changes or cancel your Membership. Subject to applicable law, you accept the new price by continuing to use or otherwise receive the benefits or potential benefits of the Travelzoo Membership after the price change effective date; provided that, you may always reject the price change by cancelling your Travelzoo Membership prior to your next recurring payment date.
We may offer promotions. The specific terms of each promotion are stated at the time the promotion is offered. Each promotion may be different. Promotions cannot be combined.
We may offer promotional trial Memberships to allow access to the Services on a trial basis or at a promotional rate.
If your Membership includes a free trial, you will not be charged the applicable fee during your free trial. To obtain the free trial, you are required to provide your payment details when you sign up in order to ensure uninterrupted access and continued use after the expiration of the free trial. Upon completion of your free trial, your Membership will automatically convert into a paid Membership and your payment method will be charged the applicable fee unless you have canceled your Membership in accordance with Termination or Cancellation of Membership section below. You may cancel your Membership during your free trial to avoid being charged as described above and below; such cancellation will be effective immediately.
If your Membership includes a promotional rate, you will be charged the promotional rate for the relevant number of Membership periods and upon completion of that period, your Membership will continue to automatically renew at the full rate. To avoid being charged the full rate, you must cancel in accordance with the Termination or Cancellation of Membership section below before the promotional period ends.
You may only be permitted to use one free trial or promotional rate offer. If your Membership is ever canceled or terminated for any reason and you purchase an additional Membership, you may not be eligible for a free trial or another promotional rate offer.
Please note that we do not provide price protection or refunds in the event of a price drop or promotional offering.
Termination or Cancellation of Membership
Cancellation of Travelzoo Membership.
Where stated on the checkout page, you may have the right to a full refund within 14 days after the start of your Travelzoo Membership. If you terminate your Travelzoo Membership during this 14-day period, your Travelzoo Membership will end at the time of the refund. If you terminate your Travelzoo Membership after the 14-day period, you may use your Travelzoo Membership until the end of the then-current Membership period and your Travelzoo Membership will not be renewed after that period expires. However, you will not be eligible for a pro-rated refund of any portion of the Travelzoo Membership fee paid for the then-current Travelzoo Membership period, subject to specific cancellation and refund rights as stated on the checkout page and/or required under mandatory applicable law. To terminate your Travelzoo membership, please contact Customer Service by emailing: (i) if you are based in the United States of America or Canada: firstname.lastname@example.org, and (ii) if you are based in the United Kingdom: email@example.com. To opt-out of receiving email newsletters and notifications regarding the Travelzoo Memberships, you can click the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any Travelzoo email, unsubscribe in your Membership account (My Account) or contact Customer Service at the above-mentioned email addresses.
Suspension/Termination by Travelzoo.
In the event that Travelzoo determines, in its sole discretion, that your Travelzoo Membership is being accessed in a commercial setting or for commercial use or else beyond your individual, non-professional use, Travelzoo reserves the right to terminate or suspend your Travelzoo Membership at any time by writing to you at the email address associated with your Travelzoo Membership.
If we terminate or suspend your Travelzoo Membership, your license to use any software, content or other Services provided in connection with the Travelzoo Membership is also terminated or suspended (as applicable). If your Travelzoo Membership is terminated, Travelzoo has the right to immediately delete all data, files, and other information stored in or for your account without further notice to you. You must pay all charges up to and including the date of termination. Should you wish to resume your Travelzoo Membership after any suspension, a restoration of service fee may apply. This fee is in addition to all past due unpaid charges and other fees.
You can re-subscribe to the Travelzoo Membership at any time following cancelation, but Travelzoo reserves the right not to permit re-subscription.
Amount to be Charged.
As a Travelzoo Member you agree to pay the fee specified when you purchased your Membership (plus any applicable taxes and other charges). If the amount to be charged varies from the amount you pre-authorized (other than due to the imposition of, or change in, applicable sales tax), you have the right to receive, and we will provide, notice of the amount to be charged and the date of the charge before the scheduled date of the transaction, unless applicable law requires you to expressly consent to the change in price. Any agreement you have with your payment provider governs your use of your specified payment method. You agree that we may accumulate charges incurred and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each billing cycle. Your failure to terminate and/or continued use of your Travelzoo Membership reaffirms that we are authorized to charge you for that Travelzoo Membership. We may submit those charges for payment and you will be responsible for such charges. This does not waive our right to seek payment directly from you.
You may be asked to provide a payment method (such as a credit, charge or debit card number) that we accept in order to activate your Membership, along with other payment information. You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use all payment method(s) that you provide to us. Your authorizations in this section also apply to our payment processors and any other companies who act as billing agents for us. You hereby authorize us in advance to charge your specified payment method on a recurring basis in line with the recurring Membership term as disclosed at the time of your sign-up for your Travelzoo Membership(s) and/or to place a hold on your payment method with respect to any unpaid charges for your Travelzoo Membership(s). You authorize the issuer of your selected payment method to pay any amounts described herein without requiring a signed receipt, and you agree that these Terms shall be accepted as authorization to the issuer of the payment method to pay any amounts described herein, without requiring a signed receipt from you. You authorize us to continue to attempt to charge and/or place holds with respect to all sums described herein, or any portion thereof, to your payment method until such amounts are paid in full. You agree to provide updated payment information upon request and any time the information you previously provided is no longer valid. You acknowledge and agree that neither Travelzoo, nor any Travelzoo agent, will have any liability whatsoever for any insufficient funds or other charges incurred by you as a result of attempts to charge, and/or place holds on, your specified payment method as contemplated by these Terms. If you provide a debit card number instead of a credit card number, you authorize all charges described herein to be applied to such debit card unless and until you provide a credit card number.
Third-Party Payment Processors.
You agree to pay us, through our payment processors (such as Stripe) or financing partners (as applicable), all charges at the prices then in effect for any purchase in accordance with the applicable payment terms presented to you at the time of purchase. You agree to make payment using the payment method you provide when you set up your Membership account. We reserve the right to correct, or to instruct our payment processors or financing partners to correct, any errors or mistakes, even if payment has already been requested or received.
Bill Inquiries and Refunds.
If you believe you have been billed in error for a Travelzoo Membership, please notify us within 30 days of the billing date by contacting Customer Service by emailing: (i) if you are based in the United States of America or Canada: firstname.lastname@example.org, and (ii) if you are based in the United Kingdom: email@example.com. Travelzoo will issue refunds only if notified within the 30-day period and only for true errors in billing, in Travelzoo’s sole discretion, or where required by mandatory applicable law.
Statutory Cancellation Rights (Certain Jurisdictions Only)
Depending on your location, you may benefit from certain additional statutory rights under consumer protection or other legislation.
If you are located in the United Kingdom or the European Union, you have 14 days after purchasing your Membership to change your mind, cancel your Membership and receive a full refund. In order to exercise your cancellation and refund right, please email our Customer Service within 14 days from purchasing your membership at firstname.lastname@example.org and notify our Customer Service of your wish to cancel your Membership.

CHOICE OF LAW AND DISPUTE RESOLUTIONS
1. APPLICABLE LAW AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION MECHANISM IF YOU ARE BASED IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA OR U.S. TERRITORIES
Arbitration and Applicable Law
If you are based in the United States or U.S. Territories, to the extent permitted by law, this Agreement and the provision of our Services shall be governed by and construed in accordance with New York law (without giving effect to any conflict of law principles).
If you have a Dispute (as defined below) with us that cannot be resolved informally or in small claims court, you will NOT have the right to pursue a claim in court or have a jury decide the claim, and you will NOT have the right to bring or participate in any class action or similar proceeding in court or in arbitration. BY USING OR INTERACTING WITH THE SERVICES OFFERED BY TRAVELZOO, YOU AGREE AS FOLLOWS:
“Dispute” means any complaint, dispute, or disagreement you may have against us, and any claim that we may have against you, whether based on past, present, or future events, arising out of or related in any way to the Agreement or regarding (i) your use of or interaction with the services and products offered by Travelzoo, (ii) any purchases or other transactions or relationships related to your use of services and products offered by Travelzoo, or (iii) any data or information you provide to us or we gather in connection with such use, interaction or transaction (collectively, "Travelzoo Transactions or Relationships").
Many Disputes can be resolved by an informal dialogue with our Customer Service. If you have a Dispute with us, before initiating an arbitration, you must send an individualized, written notice describing the Dispute to Travelzoo Customer Service at email@example.com. Promptly following receipt of such notice, you and we will try to resolve the Dispute by email exchange or telephone or videoconference. If the Dispute is not resolved within 30 days of starting this dialogue, then either you or we may initiate an action in a small claims court that has jurisdiction over the Dispute and is reasonably close to your place of residence or work, or initiate an arbitration as described below if the Dispute is ineligible to be adjudicated in small claims court.
Any Dispute that we are unable to resolve through the informal procedure described above and is ineligible for small claims court shall be resolved exclusively by final, binding arbitration ("Arbitration"). The Arbitrator may issue orders to protect the confidentiality of proprietary information, trade secrets or other sensitive information. Except as discussed below in clause 1 (Mass Arbitrations), the Arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator administered by JAMS or its successor ("JAMS") and conducted in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules And Procedures (or, if the amount in controversy exceeds $250,000, the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules And Procedures) in effect at the time the Arbitration is initiated (respectively, the "Applicable Rules"). The Applicable Rules can be found at www.jamsadr.com. This Section shall not prevent any party from seeking provisional remedies (that is, a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction) from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.

590 Madison Avenue
New York, NY 10022
For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, we and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the Non-Arbitrable Dispute, though nothing will require either you or us to resolve the Non-Arbitrable Dispute on terms with respect to which you and us, in each of our sole discretion, are not comfortable.
The parties agree that the state or federal courts in New York City, New York shall have non-exclusive jurisdiction of any Non-Arbitrable Dispute.
The foregoing provisions will not apply to any legal action taken by us to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with any loss, cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to the services or products of Travelzoo including use of the Services (including such as we may claim may be in dispute), our operations, our intellectual property or other rights.
You agree that regardless of any statute or law that establishes a longer statute of limitations, to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, any claim or cause of action (including any arbitration) arising out of, related to or connected with the use of the Services or any other of Travelzoo’s services or products or the terms of this Agreement, or other Travelzoo Transactions or Relationships, must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
