Read this agreement thoroughly and carefully before booking a Trip with us. It is a legally binding contract.
All bookings are made with Fuse Technologies, Inc, a Delaware corporation (both encompassed by "Fuse," "we," “our,” or "us").
Please read these terms and conditions carefully. When you purchase any product or book any Trip with Fuse, you acknowledge that you: i) have read and understand these terms and conditions and any other Fuse policies in effect, and ii) accept and agree to these terms and conditions and other applicable Fuse policies. The terms and conditions set forth below constitute the entire understanding and agreement between you the Trip participant (“participant,” “traveler,” “you,” or “I”) and Fuse, with respect to any and all bookings, trips, or transactions made with us and to any and all services, and products organized, arranged, or provided by us (collectively referred to as “Trip” herein; “Trip” may also be used to refer to only the Trip component of our services). If you have confirmed a booking on any Fuse Trip or product with more than one traveler named on such booking, you shall be deemed to have accepted these terms and conditions on behalf of all travelers named in the booking.
Fuse is acting at all times as an independent contractor for all suppliers who provide your transportation, accommodations, activities, and other services in connection with your Trip. Fuse does not own, operate, or control any of the suppliers of service that provide accommodations, meals, transportation, sightseeing activities, concerts, nightclub access, or other goods and services connected with your Trip. These suppliers are responsible for their performance. Fuse and its owners, employees, shareholders, officers, directors, representatives, volunteers, successors, agents and assignees are not liable for any negligence, willful act, financial insolvency, or default of any supplier or any third party. Fuse does not have any special knowledge about its supplier’s financial condition. A supplier’s goods and services are subject to the supplier’s own terms and conditions and liability waivers, as well as local laws and regulations.
In order for us to confirm your Trip, you must provide all requested details at the time of booking. Necessary details include full name as per government-issued identification, date of birth, and any other information requested relating to the Trip.
The information required from each traveler will vary by Trip, which will be communicated during the booking process. If all requested information is not provided within 30 days of the Trip start date (or at the time of booking if purchased less than 30 days before the Trip start date), Fuse maintains the right to cancel your Trip and assign your spot to the next eligible traveler on the Waitlist without any refund owed to you.
Your booking is not finalized until (i) your account and your roommates’ accounts are paid in full, (ii) the room is finalized with roommates that you select (which can only be done once your roommate’s accounts are paid in full), and (iii) the hotel confirms the reservation.
You are responsible for coordinating with your selected roommates for the indicated occupancy and ensuring each of these roommates finalized their booking by the indicated deadline. If your roommates you selected fail to finalize their bookings by this deadline, your booking will not be finalized and the hotel room will be released back into inventory.
If after your booking is finalized, if one (or more) of your roommates removes him/herself from the hotel room or cancels, the remaining travelers will be charged the difference in price between the actual hotel occupancy and the intended or paid-for hotel occupancy, or the hotel reservation will be subject to cancellation without refund, or subject to change, including but not limited to change in rooming type and hotel.
Rooms will be assigned by the respective supplier/s on a run-of-the-house basis. Special requests such as single rooms, lower floors, connecting rooms and smoking preference, and ADA accessible rooms must be made at the time of booking. While we will make reasonable efforts to communicate your requests to the supplier, such requests are not guaranteed and are at the discretion of the supplier. There may be additional charges for such requests which will be solely the expense of the guest making the request.
We reserve the right, if necessary, to substitute other similar hotels for hotels listed. Such substitutions may be made at any time and without prior notice. We cannot be held responsible for hotel over-bookings; should such occur, We will undertake to find similar accommodations in the same area. Such substitutions are at Our sole discretion and no refunds will be offered for changes in accommodations.
We reserve the right to treat any reservation that is not fully paid according to the booking and payment terms as a cancellation and subject to the cancellation terms below.
If a Trip is sold out, you may add yourself to the Waitlist during the booking process. If a spot becomes available, you will be notified by email and/or SMS/text. You will have 24 hours from when we send the email to accept the spot on the Trip and pay the deposit, or it will be offered to the next person on the Waitlist.
100% of Trip Cost is due at the time of booking. Fuse is not responsible for any charges levied or charged by third parties and/or financial institutions as a result of credit card or other payment transactions related to the purchase of Fuse Trips or products. Those fees are your responsibility; we will not refund or return those fees.
By booking a Trip you are agreeing to these terms, and thus you agree that chargebacks are not an appropriate way to avoid our cancellation and refund policy. We will vigorously dispute any chargeback request, provide this agreement as proof that you agreed to our cancellation and refund terms, and reserve the right to report fraudulent chargebacks to authorities. Should we win any chargeback that you initiate, you agree to reimburse us for our attorney’s fees, time, costs, and expenses in rebutting the chargeback and pay any damages we suffer as a result of your chargeback dispute.
The Trip is non-refundable -- no refund will be given for any reason or under any circumstances.
There are no exceptions to this cancellation and refund policy, including for reasons related to weather, terrorism, civil strife, airline default, strikes, personal, family, or medical emergencies, or any other circumstances beyond our control. This means that even if you cancel because of medical issues, virus, sickness, quarantine, travel restrictions/warnings, fear of traveling, or any other reason, your booking will be subject to this cancellation and refund policy.
We cannot provide refunds for any unused portion of your Trip if you are quarantined or a supplier refuses services if you exhibit symptoms of or test positive for infectious disease. Moreover, we will not have any liability to you, owe you a refund, or owe you any compensation for loss, damage or injury or anything else if you are infected with an illness, disease, or sickness during your Trip, if a third party refuses services (e.g., lodging or transport), if you show symptoms of or test positive for infectious disease or illness before, after or during your Trip. For example, we will not be liable to you if are infected with a virus such as coronavirus at a hotel that we book for you if you are refused service at a hotel if you show symptoms of a communicable illness such as a cough or fever if you are unable to board a plane to your destination or return home from your destination because you show symptoms of an illness, if a government or municipality denies entry, if you are required to self-quarantine, and so forth.
Fuse reserves the right to cancel, alter or postpone a Trip without prior notice at any time before departure or after a Trip commences for the safety and/or comfort of travelers, or if is not viable for us to operate the planned itinerary and for circumstances of Force Majeure (more information on Force Majeure below.) Fuse will not be responsible or liable for deposits, payments, incidental expenses, policies, or penalties for other services not included in the Trip price, such as airline tickets, separate hotel reservations, or other items (such as other Trips or cruises) handled by participants, not through Fuse. Please refer to your required travel insurance policy for further details regarding expenses covered by your insurance carrier.
If a Trip is canceled due to reasons within Fuse’s control or for reasons due to Force Majeure, we can offer a refund equal to the Trip cost that you have paid, except Unrecoverable Costs and Monies.
If a cancellation occurs after a Trip has commenced we will offer the same choice on a pro-rata basis.
Fuse factors into the Trip price a fee of $200 to cover the work involved in planning, booking, and organizing your participation from the moment the Trip is booked. This fee, at the absolute discretion of Fuse, may be incorporated as an unrecoverable cost if a Trip was to be canceled, withdrawn, altered, modified, postponed, or rescheduled.
You understand and acknowledge that the nature of this type of travel requires considerable flexibility and you should allow for alternatives. The itinerary provided for each Trip is representative of the types of activities that will be included, but it is not a guarantee. While Fuse will do its best to operate all Trips as advertised, reasonable changes in the itinerary may be made where deemed necessary by Fuse, at its sole discretion. The route, schedules, itineraries, amenities, venues, restaurants, hotels, and mode of transport may be subject to alteration without prior notice due to availability issues, local circumstances, weather, or other unpredictable and unforeseen circumstances beyond the control of Fuse.
Though this is extremely rare, we must reserve the right to impose surcharges up to 15 days before departure in case of significant changes in exchange rates, unforeseen increases in airfares or other transportation costs, increases in local operator costs, taxes, or if government action should require us to do so. In such instances, Fuse will cover amounts up to 2% of the Trip price and you will be responsible for the balance. If any surcharge results in an increase of more than 10% of the Trip price you may cancel the booking within 7 days of notification of the surcharge and obtain a full refund, minus any unrecoverable costs. Please note that a surcharge may be applied to a purchase made by credit card.
We shall not be deemed to be in breach of this agreement or otherwise liable to you, by reason of delay in performance, or by non-performance, of any of our obligations hereunder as a result of any cancellations, alterations, or modifications under this section.
