Use of Travelmax services
Terms and conditions
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
- CLIENT will reserve and purchase tickets and travel and concierge services through TRAVELMAX. To receive these services and make reservations, CLIENT will correspond with Travelmax through email, phone, text, website, or intranet. Travel and concierge services include bookings and arrangements for hotels, rental cars, tours, cruises, packages, travel insurance, charters, and other travel and event-related items.
- To assist CLIENT with provision of Services, TRAVELMAX may offer CLIENT access to Global Distribution Systems (GDSs). CLIENT can use login information for GDSs provided by TRAVELMAX to access terminals on third-party software to make travel bookings. TRAVELMAX does not own or control GDSs in any way.
- Some of the services that CLIENT reserves and purchases through TRAVELMAX will be provided to CLIENT directly by the supplier of those services ("Supplier") and not by TRAVELMAX. A Supplier is an airline, hotel, car rental company, or other provider of services of a particular item or component. In addition to the Terms and Conditions contained in the Agreement, CLIENT’s purchases and reservations are also governed by the terms and conditions of the respective Suppliers. Any claims that CLIENT may have in regard to the goods and services purchased or reserved through TRAVELMAX will be addressed to the Supplier.
- All travel rates, information, and taxes are subject to change without notice. Prices are not guaranteed until a reservation is paid in full and CLIENT receives confirmation. TRAVELMAX reserves the right to re-invoice CLIENT’s reservation should an error be made when computing CLIENT’s package price or airline ticket. Adjustments made to the pricing will not be made once full payment has been applied, nor will any subsequent rate reductions be made retroactive. Prices are based on specific dates of travel and are subject to limited availability. Prices may vary based on the actual date of travel, class of service, or hotel booked. Government-imposed airline ticket excise taxes are in effect at the time of electronic posting. TRAVELMAX reserves the right to amend these rules and restrictions at any time without notice.
- A fee may be incorporated in the total price of a TRAVELMAX reservation price. This fee, if incorporated, will cover the cost of labor of arranging, facilitating, and processing CLIENT’s purchases.
- Packages, hotels, transfers, tickets, cruises, general services, and fees are nonrefundable and non-transferable.
- Reservation date changes or services, if permitted by the supplier, are subject to penalty fees.
- Purchases related to reservation changes, including but not limited to: name changes, hotel reservation changes, and cancellations due to changes in travel plans, flight delays, early check outs of hotels, and no shows are nonrefundable, unchangeable, and non-transferrable.
- For all cancellations, TRAVELMAX requires proper notification. Penalties and refunds will be subjected to Suppliers’ terms and conditions. No refunds will be issued for unused, partially used, or complementary components of reservations.

Delayed payment is only granted to clients who purchase a high volume of travel / services through TRAVELMAX, always pay on time, and have several months of history working with TRAVELMAX.
- If CLIENT is granted the ability to pay on a delayed basis and fails to pay TRAVELMAX on time, CLIENT will incur a daily penalty of 10% of the balance due.
