The hows, whys, and do’s and don’ts of using Roo Holidays.
Effective as of January 2019
We may modify these Terms, for any reason at any time, by posting a new version on Our Website; these changes do not affect rights and obligations that arose prior to such changes. Your continued use of Our Website following the posting of modified Terms will be subject to the Terms in effect at the time of your use. Please review these Terms periodically for changes. If you object to any provision of these Terms or any subsequent modifications to these Terms or become dissatisfied with Our Website in any way, your only recourse is to immediately terminate use of Our Website.
We recommend you save and/or print out a copy of these Terms for your future reference.
1. We do not sell Travel Products
Our Website is a travel search engine. Roo Holidays does not provide, own or control any of the travel services and products that you can access through Our Website, such as flights, accommodations, rental cars, packages, or travel insurance (the “Travel Products”). The Travel Products are owned, controlled or made available by third parties (the “Travel Providers”) either directly (e.g. airline) or as an agent (e.g. online travel agency). The Travel Providers are responsible for the Travel Products. The Travel Provider’s terms and privacy policies apply to your booking so you must agree to, and understand those terms. Further, the terms of the actual travel provider (airline, hotel, tour operator, etc.) apply to your travel, so you must also agree to and understand those terms. Your interaction with any Travel Provider accessed through Our Website is at your own risk and Roo Holidays does not have any responsibility should anything go wrong with your booking or during your travel.
The display on Our Website of a Travel Product or Travel Provider does not in any way imply, suggest, or constitute a recommendation by Roo Holidays of that Travel Product or Travel Provider, or any sponsorship or approval of Roo Holidays by such Travel Provider, or any affiliation between such Travel Provider and Roo Holidays.
Roo Holidays hosts content, including prices, made available by or obtained from Travel Providers. Roo Holidays is in no way responsible for the accuracy, timeliness or completeness of such content. Since Roo Holidays has no control over the Travel Products and does not verify the content uploaded by the Travel Providers, it is not possible for us to guarantee the prices displayed on Our Website. Prices change constantly and additional charges (e.g. payment fees, services charges, checked-in luggage fees, local taxes and fees) may apply, so you should always check whether the price asked for a booking is the one you expected.
2. Intellectual property
We, along with our corporate affiliates, the Travel Providers and other licensors own all of the text, images, software, trademarks, service marks or other material contained on Our Website. You will not copy or transmit any of the material except for your personal, non-commercial use. All copyright, trademark and other proprietary rights notices presented on Our Website must appear on all copies you print. Other non-Roo Holidays product, service, or company designations on Our Website belong to those respective third parties and may be mentioned in Our Website for identification purposes only. You should contact the appropriate third party for more complete information regarding such designations and their registration status. Your use of and access to Our Website does not grant you any licence or right to use any of the marks included on Our Website.

4. Warranty disclaimer
Our Website, all content and services provided on Our Website are provided on an “as-is” and “as available” basis. Our content is largely generated in an automated fashion; errors can and do happen. We usually have many search results, but we are not comprehensive and do not display all available providers and offers. Accordingly, we do not always display the lowest available price. Roo Holidays expressly disclaims to the fullest extent permissible all warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to, any implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, non-infringement, and security and accuracy, as well as all warranties arising by usage of trade, course of dealing, or course of performance.
5. Our liability is limited
We (together with our officers, directors, employees, representatives, shareholders, affiliates, and providers) to the extent permitted by law hereby expressly exclude any responsibility and liability for (a) any loss or damages to, or viruses that may infect, your computer equipment or other property as the result of your access to Our Website, your downloading of any content from Our Website or (b) any injury, death, loss, claim, act of god, accident, delay, or any direct, special, exemplary, punitive, indirect, incidental or consequential damages of any kind (including without limitation lost profits or lost savings), whether based in contract, tort, strict liability or otherwise, that arise out of or is in any way connected with: (i) any use of Our Website or our content; (ii) any failure or delay (including without limitation the use of or inability to use any component of this Website for reservations or booking); or (iii) the performance or non performance by us or any Travel Provider, even if we have been advised of the possibility of damages to such parties or any other party. Some states or countries do not allow this limitation of liability, so the limitations above may not apply or apply only partially to you.
6. You agree to protect us
Subject to these Terms, you will defend, indemnify and hold us and each of our officers, directors, employees and agents, harmless from and against any claim, cause of action, liability, expense, loss or demand, including without limitation reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of, or in any way connected with your breach of these Terms or the agreements made part of these Terms by reference, your breach of any applicable law, and your use of or access to Our Website or the Intellectual Property.
