  1. Products. Partner hereby agrees to make its travel or destination products, activities and/or services (its “Products”) available to Rent And Tour Ghana for booking through the Service. Partner hereby authorizes Rent And Tour Ghana to accept bookings and issue vouchers, voucher/reservation numbers or other confirmation method as specified by Rent And Tour Ghana for the Products (each, a “Voucher”) that Rent And Tour Ghana makes available through the Service. Partner will: (i) accept Vouchers presented by the customers who made the booking through the service (each, a “Customer”); and (ii) verify the identity of each Customer presenting a Voucher prior to accepting it. If Partner cannot provide a Product to a Customer presenting a Voucher, then Partner will immediately notify Rent And Tour Ghana and, at the Customer’s election, provide Customer with a comparable or better Product at no additional cost, or notify Rent And Tour Ghana of Customer’s desire for a refund. Rent And Tour Ghana may refrain from offering Products through the Service in its sole discretion. The Partner shall: (x) make available to Rent And Tour Ghana all Products that it makes available through any other third party distributor of its Products (each a “Distributor”), and (y) offer its Products to Rent And Tour Ghana at Rates equal to or less than the Rates it offers any other Distributor for the same or similar products.

  1. Partner Product Information/Rates. (a) On or before the Effective Date, Partner shall deliver to Rent And Tour Ghana detailed information about the Products, in the form and manner as requested by Rent And Tour Ghana, which will include, among other things, the Rates for the Products inclusive of Transaction Tax (as defined below), availability limitations and the cancellation policy for each service.  (b) As used herein “Rate” shall mean (either (i) the retail rate for each Service inclusive of Transaction Taxes provided by the Partner (each a “Retail Rate”); or (ii) the net rate inclusive of Transaction Tax as provided by Partner or a promotional lower net rate inclusive of Transaction Tax mutually agreed upon by the parties for use in promotional offers such as travel packages (each a “Net Rate”). (c) Partner will not impose a more restrictive cancellation policy on Customers than the cancellation policies Partner imposes on customers booking directly with Supplier or through any Distributor. At a minimum, Partner’s cancellation policy shall provide full refund if 48 hours  have not passed since client’s booking. However if the booking was done 24 hours before the arrival or pickup or start date as applicable, cancellation will be done at the cost of the one day booking. The following charges apply on refund for normal cancellation done after 48 hours of booking:
  • 20% on one day charge for 30 days to arrival or pickup or start date as applicable
  • 30% on one day charge for 15 – 29 days to arrival or pickup or start date as applicable
  • 40% on one day charge for 7 – 14 days to arrival or pickup or start date as applicable
  • 50% on one day charge for 2 – 6 days to arrival or pickup or start date as applicable
  • 100% on one day charge for 24 hours to arrival or pickup or start date as applicable

(d) Providing Rent And Tour Ghana with competitive rates, rules, restrictions, policies and conditions is part of a fair and balanced commercial bargain between Partner and Rent And Tour Ghana, one which delivers incremental bookings to Partner on attractive terms (including importantly at no upfront costs), and one which allows Rent And Tour Ghana to provide a comprehensive search and booking service to Customers, while protecting Rent And Tour Ghana from free-riding on its considerable investments in attracting Customers to Partner’s Products. (e) When supplying information to Rent And Tour Ghana, Partner shall follow the instructions provided by Rent And Tour Ghana. By this reference, the information submitted to Rent And Tour Ghana, once accepted by Rent And Tour Ghana, is incorporated into, and made a part of, this Agreement.

Partner will treat all Customers in a nondiscriminatory manner and in the same manner as Partner treats its other customers. In an effort to ensure complete Customer satisfaction, Rent And Tour Ghana will work in good faith with Partner to evaluate and resolve each Customer complaint on a case-by-case basis. In the event that Partner fails to respond to any Customer complaint escalated to Partner by Rent And Tour Ghana, then Rent And Tour Ghana, in its sole discretion, refund the amount determined by Rent And Tour Ghana to be appropriate to the customer and may withhold such refund amount from amounts owing to Partner.
