Prices displayed on the Website do not include, merely by way of example and without limitation, any applicable hotel/condo service or resort fees, charges for optional incidentals (such as mini-bar snacks or telephone calls), or fuel or regulatory surcharges. The supplier will assess these fees, charges and surcharges either at check-in or upon checkout.

If you need additional copies of the confirmation before traveling, please visit the My Account section on the Website where your pending confirmations may be viewed and printed. (Because you will be charged for the room and taxes for the room at the time of booking, check your hotel receipt to make sure that the hotel does not charge you for the room or taxes on the room that you already paid through the Website. Of course, your hotel bill may include resort fees, parking charges, incidental expenses, etc. for which you have not already paid.)

Program Manager's Low Price Hotel/Condo Guarantee
To qualify for the Program Manager's low price hotel/condo guarantee, the lower rate ("Comparison Price") for the hotel/condo accommodation that you purchased and paid for from the Program must be:
- a) Identical to the one you purchased through the Program, meaning that it is for the same hotel/condo, reservation dates, number of guests, room type (i.e., "standard room with king bed"), and subject to the same cancellation and advance purchase policies, and other terms and conditions governing the rates. All other features that affect pricing, including but not limited to views, location, smoking/non-smoking, kitchen or other amenities, must also be the same. A claim may be denied if the lower priced room is not identical in all respects to the booked room;
- b) For an available room-only rate offered to the general public for immediate purchase and must be verifiable by the Program Manager;
- c) Found within 24 hours after you have purchased and fully paid for your accommodation through the Program Website; and
- d) Found on a publicly available website that shows the exact hotel/condo you are booking before you pay and allows you to complete the transaction on the site (but do not complete it if you wish to take advantage of the Low Hotel/Condo Price Guarantee).
In addition, to be eligible for a refund under the "Low Hotel/Condo Price Guarantee", your eligible Hotel Bucks account must be active and payments up-to-date at the time of accommodation purchase. Proof of the lower price must be submitted to the Program Manager as detailed below:
Submit your claim to the Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or via fax to 561-994-3996 within 48 hours from the time you purchased your hotel/condo stay through the Program Website. When a claim form covers multiple hotel/condo nights, the rates will be compared for each night separately.
Each claim form requires proof of the lower rate (e.g., a screen shot of the website showing the lower rate and all applicable terms and conditions relating to such rate).
Please note that Program Manager will not be responsible for any incorrect or inaccurate information, human errors, technical malfunctions, failures, interruptions, omissions, or deletions, or for information that is processed late or incorrectly or that is incomplete. The Program Manager will not be responsible for lost, late, misdirected, incomplete, or illegible claims. Proof of submittal of a claim does not constitute proof of delivery. All decisions of the Program Manager are final. Price comparison will be made on rate plus any taxes, mandatory gratuities, and any other mandatory fees associated with the hotel/condo rate. Price disparities that are solely attributable to fluctuations and/or differences in currency exchange rates are excluded from the Low Price Guarantee.
The Program Manager shall not be responsible for any fees or other costs incurred due to cancellation of a Comparison Price purchase.
If you satisfy the terms and conditions described below, Program Manager will refund the difference in price as a credit back to the credit card used to make the booking, and also credit your Program account with double the amount of Points from Bucks Bee that you used for the transaction. The refund is limited to the difference between the Program price for the room only and the Comparison Price for the room only, and does not include taxes, gratuities, guest incidental charges, food and beverage charges, resort fees, hotel/condo reward points or any other fees or miscellaneous charges.
This benefit is NOT insurance: The Low Price Guarantee benefit is not insurance, and these terms and conditions are not a policy or contract of insurance.
The Low Price Guarantee does not apply to the following hotel/condo rate types:
- Rates that are not publicly available, such as negotiated rates, corporate or group rates (such as wedding parties), charters, tour packages, consolidator rates and rates that involve membership fees or volume requirements;
- Discount rates offered only to members of groups or individuals who meet previously-specified criteria, including AAA members, seniors, government employees, repeat guests, or hotel/condo rewards program members;
- Package rates that include the room and other components such as air, car rental, entertainment, and/or meals other than breakfast;
- Package or group add-on rates that extend the length of a stay;
- Rates for stays extending beyond 30 nights;
- Rates that are available on opaque or auction websites that do not disclose the hotel/condo identity or brand until the reservation is completed;
- Pre-paid rates that involve a voucher or other form of pre-paid certificate (including electronic vouchers and certificates) for a hotel/condo stay outside the United States and Canada; or
- Rates that are non-refundable or have a cancellation penalty as soon as purchased.>
The Program Manager reserves the right to modify or cancel the Low Price Guarantee at any time without prior notice. The Program Manager is the final authority on the interpretation of these rules. Void where prohibited by law.
