6. CANCELLATION POLICY
By making purchase on our website, you agree to the Company's Cancellation Policy.
Hotels may implement cancellation policies that are different from the Company's. As such, additional cancellation charges may apply on top of the Company's cancellation charges, and you agree to bear these charges. In some cases, cancellation is prohibited and the booking becomes totally non-refundable.
Cancellation needs to be confirmed by the Company's hotel reservation staff. If for any reason, you do not receive confirmation of your cancellation from our reservation staff after submission, you need to email to us at email@example.com.
7. AMENDMENT POLICY
By making purchase on our website, you agree to the Company's Amendment Policy.
Hotels may implement amendment policies that are different from the Company's. As such, additional amendment charges may apply on top of the Company's amendment charges, and you agree to bear these charges. In some cases, amendment is prohibited and the booking becomes totally non-refundable.
Amendment needs to be confirmed by the Company's hotel reservation staff. If for any reason, you do not receive confirmation of your amendment from our reservation staff after submission, you need to email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Company levies an administrative fee of S$30 per booking on top of any charge the hotel may impose.
8. MODE OF COMMUNICATION
You agree to accept email as the dominant mode of communication between you and the Company. Booking confirmation via email shall therefore satisfy the legal requirement for binding communications between you and the Company. You also agree to email to email@example.com to check your booking status in case you do not hear from us. In doing so, you agree not to hold the Company liable for any non-receipt of hotel voucher or email confirmation or booking confirmation. In cases where the Company cancels or amends your booking due to various reasons, including but not limited to incomplete booking information or payment details or incomprehensible instructions, and emails you the cancellation or amendment notice, the Company does not take responsibility for your failing to be notified by our email, and the Company shall not be liable for any damage or loss incurred. Please be reminded to check your contact email regularly.
