  1. Minimum Age:
    You must be 18 years of age or older.
  2. Acceptance:
    Membership in the Program becomes effective only when the Membership Application is accepted by Insider Travel Club and the Initial Membership Fee and the first Monthly Membership Fee is paid and received by Insider Travel Club, and you have accepted these Terms and Conditions of Membership. Continued Membership is at all times after acceptance conditional upon payment by you of the Monthly Membership Fee. Insider Travel Club may refuse to accept any Membership Application in its sole discretion.
  3. Payment Authorization:
    You hereby authorize Insider Travel Club to charge your credit or debit card identified in your Application, or provided to Insider Travel Club from time to time, with the Initial Membership Fee and the Monthly Membership Fees. You hereby certify that the credit or debit card used to make payment is held in your name or that you are an authorized user of the card. Payments contemplated by this purchase consist of the Initial Membership Fee and the recurring Monthly Membership Fees until the Membership is cancelled by notice in writing in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
  4. Providers of Benefits:
    Insider Travel Club supplies certain Benefits itself and/or through associated entities but also contracts with various Providers to provide Benefits to Members, which Benefits will change from time to time. Insider Travel Club shall at all times provide updated information as to Benefits available on its Website.
  5. Authorized Users:
    Benefits may be used by any Member. A maximum of two (2) adults aged 18 or older may travel per booking provided at least one (1) adult on the booking is a Member or is an adult aged 18 or older who resides in the same household as a Member. A Membership may only be held in the name of an individual person; Insider Travel Club does not accept Membership Applications in multiple names, partnerships, and trusts or in the names of, or on behalf of, business entities. Members may take dependent children on Insider Travel Club' bookings by paying the designated trip charge. Children may be charged an additional Dependent Child Fee ("DCF"), which is particular to each booking and will change accordingly. Dependent children are those children residing with their parent(s) or legal guardian(s), in full-time education and 18 years of age or under. Those children who are over the age of 18, unmarried, residing with their parent(s) or legal guardian(s), and attending full-time education (up to the age of 25) are also considered dependent children for these purposes. In addition, a child who is permanently disabled (no matter what age) and under the direct care of his or her parent(s) or legal guardian(s) is a dependent child for these purposes. Additional rooms for dependent children under the age of 18 years not sharing accommodation with adult guests can be requested but are not guaranteed to be available and will be subject to additional charges, which may vary.
  6. Selection of Benefits:
    It is your responsibility to choose which Benefits you use. Not electing to participate in all or any of the Benefits offered does not constitute a breach of your Membership. Except in accordance with the provisions for Cancellation in these Terms and Conditions, you will not be eligible for a full or partial refund of your Initial Membership Fee and Monthly Membership Fees as a result of your non-use of any of the Benefits of the Program. Benefits available may be varied and/or replaced by alternative Benefits at any time in the sole discretion of Insider Travel Club.
  7. Availability:
    Due to the inherently limited inventory in the travel industry, the availability of specific services or features such as room upgrades or amenities is not guaranteed and may be subject to limits on availability or price, which may vary. Insider Travel Club will make every reasonable effort to offer you the best possible price, but prices may increase above the initially published price due to limited inventory availability. Benefits are booked subject to the booking terms and cancellation policy applicable to each booking, which may contain restrictions imposed by a Provider, such as minimum or maximum age requirements, travel insurance and visa requirements. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are able to comply with the booking terms, including any such restrictions or requirements, before booking. Insider Travel Club shall not be responsible for your failure to comply with such restrictions or requirements, where you have been advised of these on or prior to booking.
  8. Membership is Non-Transferable:
    Membership is personal to you as a Member and you may not transfer, assign, charge or otherwise dispose of any of your rights or obligations without the prior written consent of Insider Travel Club. Membership shall terminate automatically on the death of the individual in whose name the Membership is held.
