HONEYMOON & ANNIVERSARY TRAVELERS: You MUST bring a copy of your marriage certificate to qualify for any complimentary honeymoon/anniversary package (photo copy is recommended). Failure to have such proof of marriage will result in the resort denying these complimentary privileges (if applicable).

Typically, a resort will honor these packages up to 30 days before or after your honeymoon / anniversary date.

CHANGES TO RESERVATIONS: ANY changes made to your existing room reservation are subject to the current rates, promotions, and terms at the time of change.

FINAL PAYMENT: The final payment MUST be received NO LATER THAN 60 days prior to departure or as required by the travel supplier/hotel/resort. Final payments may not be automatically charged.

CANCELLATION PENALTIES: Once your reservation is made Travel Unrivaled may charge a $500 nonrefundable penalty per person up until any additional resort or supplier penalties take effect. The aforementioned is per person and/or entire room canceling (so if 1 person within the room cancels these same rules apply for that person, if the entire room cancels the same rules apply for each person in the room). Regarding Airline tickets: if Travel Unrivaled booked your individual tickets, they are 100% non-refundable and subject to individual airline penalties/fees (see insurance below).  

LATE FEES: Final payments not received prior to the due date above will incur a $25 per person late fee. All reservations are subject to cancellation and hotel penalties as described above if final payment is not received on the due date. Late fees are not covered by the travel insurance and are always non-refundable.

All the above would be protected with the optional Travel Insurance with the exception of late fees. If you do not have insurance – natural disasters (such as hurricanes), cancellations for ANY reason (medical/personal emergencies, cancelation of the wedding, etc.) do not relieve you from these penalties. ONLY the Travel Insurance will ensure you coverage. All cancellations must be received in writing.

Overview of Dispute Resolution Process. Travel Unrivaled is committed to participating in a reasonable and efficient dispute resolution process. To that end, these Terms provide for a two-part process for parties to whom this section applies: (1) an informal negotiation directly with Travel Unrivaled’s customer service team,

and (2) a binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). If you are a business, or acting in some way on behalf of your employer, then the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. Otherwise, if you are an individual seeking Travel Unrivaled’s services for your personal use, then AAA’s specially designed Consumer Arbitration Rules will apply. In each case, the rules are modified by this “Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement” section to the extent permitted. The AAA Rules are available at or by calling the AAA at 1–800–778–7879.


If the Consumer Arbitration Rules apply, those rules provide:

  • Claims can be filed with AAA online (;
  • Arbitrators must be neutral and no party may unilaterally select an arbitrator;
  • Arbitrators must disclose any bias, interest in the result of the arbitration, or relationship

with any party;

  • Parties retain the right to seek relief in small claims court for certain claims, at their option;
  • The initial filing fee for the consumer is capped at $200;
  • The consumer gets to elect the hearing location and can elect to participate live, by

phone, video conference, or, for claims under $25,000, by the submission of documents;

  • The arbitrator can grant any remedy that the parties could have received in court to

resolve the party’s individual claim.




Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution and Notification. Prior to initiating arbitration, you and Travel Unrivaled each agree to notify the other party of the dispute and attempt to negotiate an informal resolution to it first. If Travel Unrivaled has a dispute, we will contact you at the email address provided when completing your booking, or using other contact information you have provided to us in your profile.  If you have a dispute with Travel Unrivaled you can contact Travel Unrivaled’s customer service team by emailing us at If after a good faith effort to negotiate one of us feels the dispute has not and cannot be resolved informally, the party intending to pursue arbitration agrees to notify the other party via email prior to initiating the arbitration. In order to initiate arbitration, a claim must be filed with the AAA and the written Demand for Arbitration (available at provided to the other party, as specified in the AAA Rules.


Agreement to Arbitrate. You and Travel Unrivaled mutually agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to services you seek from, or services provided by, Travel Unrivaled (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding individual arbitration (the “Arbitration Agreement”). If there is a dispute about whether this Arbitration Agreement can be enforced or applies to our Dispute, you and Travel Unrivaled agree that the arbitrator will decide that issue.


EXCEPTIONS: You and Travel Unrivaled each agree that the following claims are exceptions to the Arbitration Agreement and may be immediately brought in a judicial proceeding in a court of competent jurisdiction: (i) any claim related to actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights and (ii) any claim seeking emergency injunctive relief based on exigent circumstances (e.g., imminent danger or commission of a crime, hacking, cyber-attack). Furthermore, Travel Unrivaled reserves right to seek equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction. Any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of, or related to, services sought from or provided by Travel Unrivaled, and not subject to arbitration, shall be instituted exclusively in the federal courts of the United States or the courts of the State of Missouri, although we retain the right to bring any suit, action, or proceeding against you for breach of these Terms of Use in your country of residence or any other relevant country or in any court of competent jurisdiction. You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts.


Arbitration Hearing/Location. In order to make the arbitration most convenient to you, Travel Unrivaled agrees that any required arbitration hearing may be conducted, at your option, (a) in Kansas City, Missouri; (b) in any  other location to which you and Travel Unrivaled both agree; or (c) via phone or video conference. For any claim or

counterclaim under $25,000, the arbitration will be conducted by solely the submission of documents to the arbitrator unless the arbitrator decides that documents alone are not sufficient to resolve the dispute.


Attorney’s Fees and Costs. You and Travel Unrivaled agree that Travel Unrivaled will be responsible for payment of the balance of any initial filing fee under the AAA Rules in excess of $200 for claims of $75,000 or less. You may be

entitled to seek an award of attorney fees and expenses if you prevail in arbitration, to the extent provided under applicable law and the AAA rules. For arbitrations conducted under the Consumer Arbitration Rules, unless the arbitrator determines that your claim was frivolous or filed for the purpose of harassment, Travel Unrivaled agrees it will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law or the AAA Rules, to recover attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration. For arbitrations conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees from the other party.


Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court with proper jurisdiction. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only on an individual basis and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim.
