Reward Points may be redeemed by a Rewards Program Participant (defined below) or returned to the Company User, subject to the terms and conditions contained herein and in separate terms provided to each Rewards Program Participant. These Supplemental Terms (the “Rewards Program Terms”) govern the establishment of functioning of the Rewards Program and are incorporated into the TOS Agreement.
a) Company Participation. Company User may participate in the TravelBank Rewards Program, and enable its Employees to participate, by entering into an order form, executed by both TravelBank and Company User. Company User may withdraw from the Rewards Program at any time through providing 30 days’ written notice to TravelBank.

For each TravelBank Company Network participating in the TravelBank Rewards Program, a Manager must provide TravelBank with a valid and updated Authorization for Direct Payment via ACH (ACH DEBIT) for Company User; at TravelBank’s discretion, a valid and updated credit card information may also be used (each a “Selected Payment Method”). Company User authorizes TravelBank to use the Selected Payment Method(s) to offset the costs of the Reward Points. Company User is responsible for maintaining complete and accurate information regarding the Selected Payment Method(s).
3. Earning Reward Points.
a) Rewards Program Process.Company User, in conjunction with TravelBank, determines the Incentives to be used in determining the accrual of Reward Points. A Rewards Program Participant must perform the specific requirements set forth in the Incentive that is identified through the Services.

A Rewards Program Participant may also earn Reward Points after fulfilling other specific actions, which will be communicated to the Rewards Program Participant by TravelBank.

The value of Reward Points may vary according to how a Rewards Program Participant choses to use them. Accumulated points belong to Company User and are not the property of the Rewards Program Participant. The accumulation of Reward Points in an account does not entitle a Rewards Program Participant to any vested rights with respect to the Rewards Program or the Reward Points. Company User has the right at any time to terminate its Rewards Program and request a refund for any unredeemed Reward Points.
c) Third Party Terms. When Reward Points are redeemed for products and services offered by third parties (e.g., flights offered by airlines, hotel accommodations), all products or services purchased through the redemption of Reward Points are governed by such third-party terms. TravelBank has no liability for the acts or omissions of any third party, including third parties whose products and services are made available through the TravelBank Store.

6. Termination and Suspension of a Rewards Program Participant. Company User and TravelBank reserve the right at any time to limit enrollment in the Rewards Program or discontinue participation in the Rewards Program for any Rewards Program Participant. Company User or TravelBank may void or cancel a Rewards Program Participant’s entire Reward Point balance at their discretion, for any reason, including if any Reward Points in an account are issued, received, or redeemed through fraud or theft, or otherwise illegally, or not as authorized in these Rewards Program Terms. These rights are in addition to any other legal or equitable remedy which may be available to Company User or TravelBank under applicable law. At any time if Reward Program Participant is no longer deemed eligible for participation in the Rewards Program by the Company User including, but not limited to, a change in employment status, all Reward Points shall be deemed forfeited.

TravelBank may make these changes even though the changes may affect the value of Reward Points already accumulated at any time and from time to time.
b) Notice of Modification of the Rewards Program. If TravelBank makes changes that it believes will have a material impact on Company User’s or a Rewards Program Participant’s use of the Rewards Program, TravelBank will notify Company User and the Rewards Program Participant by sending an email to the current email addresses on file, and by noting on the Services that the Rewards Program Terms have been updated. The effective date of any change in these Rewards Program Terms will be the date specified in the notice. If you (or a Rewards Program Participant) disagree with the changes to these Rewards Program Terms, you may opt out of the Rewards Program by terminating these Rewards Program Terms by providing written notice to TravelBank. Company User’s ongoing use of the Rewards Program after the changes take effect signifies your agreement to the new terms.
8. Specific Terms
a) Compliance with Laws. Company User and each Rewards Program Participant must comply at all times with all laws, rules, and regulations applicable to the Rewards Program and the granting and use of the Reward Points.
b) Tax Liability. The receipt or redemption of Reward Points may be subject to tax liability.

TravelBank is not able to specify the type of aircraft tobe used by any airline or guarantee seat assignments. In addition, TravelBank is notresponsible for losses due to cancelled flights, seats, or changed flight itineraries. Airlinesretain the right to adjust flight times and schedules at any time, and these changes mayinclude a change in the airline you fly, your aircraft type or destination. Such alterations donot constitute a significant change to your Trip Itinerary.

c)Failure to Check-in on the outward journey (on a charter or scheduled flight) will automaticallyresult in cancellation of the return flight by the airline. We would encourage you to contact uson the date of departure if you wish us to keep the return flight open; this decision remains atthe discretion of the airline company.
d)Flight Connections: If any booked flight connecting with your outbound or inbound flight iscancelled or delayed, the airlines reserve the right to provide that transport by any othermeans (coach/bus, train, etc.). If you organize your own connecting transport with thearrangements booked with TravelBank, we would advise that you reserve flexible orrefundable tickets in order to avoid the risk of any financial loss. You are also advised not tomake any important appointments for the day following your return date. TravelBank cannotaccept responsibility for the consequences of delays (such as a cancelled scheduled flight) inthe context of connecting transport organized by you.
e)Non-Use of Flight Segments: You agree not to purchase a ticket or tickets containing flightsegments that you will not be using, such as a “point-beyond”, “hidden-city”, or “back-to-backtickets”. You further agree not to purchase a round-trip ticket that you plan to use only forone-way travel. You acknowledge that the airlines generally prohibit all such tickets, andtherefore we do not guarantee that the airline will honor your ticket or tickets. You agree toindemnify TravelBank against any airline claims for the difference between the full fare ofyour actual itinerary and the value of the ticket or tickets that you purchased.
f)Luggage: TravelBank assumes no liability for any loss or damage to baggage or personaleffects, whether in transit to or from a Trip, or during a Trip. The airline is liable to you for thebaggage you entrust to it only for the compensation contemplated in the internationalconventions and relevant statutes. In the event of damage, late forwarding, theft or loss ofluggage, you should contact the your airline and declare the damage, absence or loss of yourpersonal effects before leaving the airport, and then submit a declaration, attaching theoriginals of the following documents: the travel ticket, the baggage check-in slip, and thedeclaration. It is recommended that you take out an insurance policy covering the value ofyour items.
g)Additional and oversized baggage fees: Most airlines have their own policy regardingluggage. We recommend that you check with your airline ahead of time for any weightrestrictions and additional charges relating to checked baggage. You will be responsible forpaying to the airline any additional charges for checked or overweight baggage, including, butnot limited to, golf bags and oversized luggage. If you exceed the weight limit set by yourairline, and excess weight is permitted, you must pay a supplement directly to the airline atthe airport.
h)Carriage of Hazardous Material: Federal law forbids the carriage of hazardous materialsaboard aircraft in your luggage or on your person. A violation can result in five years’imprisonment and penalties of $250,000 or more. Hazardous materials include explosives,compressed gases, flammable liquids and solids, oxidizers, poisons, corrosives andradioactive materials. Examples: Paints, lighter fluid, fireworks, tear gases, oxygen bottles,and radio-pharmaceuticals.

j)Stop-Overs: Direct flights may be “non-stop” or may involve one or more stop-overs (in thelatter case this means the same flight by the airline, because the flight number remains thesame). The same applies to connecting flights that may be subject to crew changes. Whenyou reserve a scheduled or charter flight involving a stop-over in a town, and the second flighttakes off from a different airport to the airport of arrival, ensure that you have sufficient timefor reaching the second airport. The journey to the other airport is at your ownexpense. TravelBank will not be able to reimburse you for these costs, nor will it be liable ifyou miss the second flight.
k)Issuance of e-tickets: As of June 1st, 2008, the International Air Transport Association (IATA)has imposed new rules with regard to the issuing of air travel tickets. As of that date, travelagencies and airlines have an obligation to only issue travel tickets via electronic means (i.e.electronic ticket or “e-ticket”). Due to technical constraints to do with airline’s restrictions inrelation to certain requirements (infants under the age of 2, inter-airline agreements, groups,etc.), it may be impossible to issue an electronic ticket. Therefore, though a flight may beshown as available, it might prove impossible for us to honor your reservation. This situation,which is outside our control, will not result in liability on our part. If we cannot issue you an e-ticket, we will contact you to propose an alternative route solution. This could involve adifferent tariff and/or additional costs for which you would be responsible. In the event of theabsence of an alternative solution, your refusal to pay any tariff difference, or if the issuanceof tickets proves impossible, we would be forced to cancel your reservation at no cost to you.We will provide you with a full refund within 30 days after determining that there is noalternative solution possible.
