SUPPLIER RULES AND RESTRICTIONS

Additional terms and conditions of third party Products and Services’ suppliers (“Supplier”) will apply to your reservation and purchase of Products and Services. Please read these additional terms and conditions carefully. In particular, if you have purchased a transportation item, please ensure you read the full terms and conditions of transportation issued by the Supplier which can be found on the Supplier's website or upon your request from the Supplier. Supplier may, with or without notice, cancel or reschedule your trip literary or timing. It is your responsibility to check on the scheduled departure time ahead of travel. DCRM shall not be responsible for the acts, negligence or omission of the Supplier including any cancellation of your transportation, or changes in the schedule. To minimize the impact to your travel plans, you are advised to purchase travel insurance to cover travel disruption. You agree to abide by the terms and conditions of purchase imposed by any Supplier with whom you elect to deal, including, but not limited to, payment of all amounts when due and compliance with the Supplier’s rules and restrictions regarding availability and use of fares, products, or services. We reserve the right to cancel your booking if full payment is not received in a timely fashion.

Some accommodation Suppliers may require you to present a credit card or cash deposit upon check-in to cover additional expenses during your stay. Such deposit is unrelated to any payment received by us or payable for your accommodation booking.

You acknowledge that some 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 Supplier's rules and restrictions may result in cancellation of your reservation(s), in your being denied access to the applicable Products and Services, in your forfeiting any monies paid for such reservation(s), and/or in our debiting your account for any costs we and/or Supplier incur as a result of such violation.

You may be offered the opportunity to book a reservation for a combination of two one-way transportation tickets instead of a roundtrip transportation ticket. Combined one-way transportation tickets may provide a greater choice of transportation and can be combined on the same transportation Supplier or on different transportation Suppliers. Unlike roundtrip transportation tickets, each one-way transportation ticket is subject to its own rules, restrictions, and fees. If one of these trip is affected by a change (e.g. cancellation or rescheduling) that causes you to make changes to the other transportation, you will be responsible for any fees incurred for making changes to the unaffected trip.
