4.0 BUSINESS TRAVELLER PROGRAM
SnapTravel Business Traveller is a SnapTravel loyalty program (the “Program”). When you book and stay with our Business Traveller program , we give you credits to redeem toward a future hotel booking. You can only collect or redeem credits at an eligible SnapTravel hotel property.
The Program is open to any SnapTravel member that receives and accepts an invitation. Business Traveller Program members are responsible for ensuring their account details are up to date, and that they are using the correct membership profile when collecting & redeeming credits.
4.1 Collecting credits
You will collect credits for every dollar you save on an eligible SnapTravel booking. The credits earned are equal to the savings made on your hotel booking ($30 USD saved = 30 USD in credits). If you use different currencies when collecting credits, the value of your credits is stored in the currency used for the booking.
Only Program members collect credits. Other guests on the same booking do not, and you cannot collect nights for any hotel bookings you made before you joined the Program.
We will add credits to your account 24 hours after you check out of the booking. You can check your point balance by reviewing the last confirmation email sent from SnapTravel or messaging us directly on any Medium. If you collect credits but we later believe that you did not complete your hotel stay, we reserve the right to remove these credits from your account.
Your nights will not expire as long as you keep your account active at least once every 12 months. This means you must make a booking in that time, and when you do, the expiry date will be extended for another 12 months. If you do not collect credits in a 12 month period, your credits will expire and not be reissued.
4.2 Redeeming credits
You can redeem your credits on any hotel booking made on SnapTravel, effective immediately after joining the Program. Bookings made with credits are subject to all applicable booking terms and conditions. Credits may only be redeemed for bookings made in the same currency. Credits have no cash value, and cannot be redeemed for cash, other reward programs, or credits in another currency.
Bookings made through credits are subject to all applicable cancellation policies that are passed onto us by the SnapTravel property. If you cancel a booking within the property’s cancellation window, we will return it to your account within 24 hours of your cancellation. If you cancel a booking made with credits outside of the property’s cancellation window, the credits will not be returned to your account.
5.0 SUPPLIER RULES AND RESTRICTIONS
SnapTravel works with several suppliers of hotel rooms. When a hotel room is booked with a particular supplier, all of the suppliers terms and conditions will also be in effect towards your booking.
When the hotel supplier is Travelscape LLC or Vacationspot, SL - you are bound to additional terms and conditions
If any part of the suppliers’ terms and conditions are violated, we reserve full rights to cancel your reservations and make changes accordingly. You will be responsible for all fees that arise from making such changes should it be applicable .
6.0 PAY NOW OR PAY LATER AT HOTEL DETAILS
You acknowledge that some rates have to be prepaid, and some rates can be paid later at the hotel. If you select a prepaid rate, you will be charged the full amount of the reservation immediately following the completion of the booking form. If you select a pay later rate, you will pay the hotel upon arrival in their preferred currency for the full reservation amount. You understand that tax rates and foreign exchange rates could change in the time between booking and the stay.
Transaction fees may apply when booking in a foreign country or in a foreign currency. These fees will be applied to the cardholder’s account by the card issuing bank, independent from SnapTravel. If you have any questions about these fees or any exchange rates applied to your booking, please contact your bank.
