I’m Your Trip is acting as intermediary or “booking agent” for products and services that are not directly supplied by us (e.g., ground transportation, hotel accommodations, meals, tours, cruises, etc.). We are not a co-vendor of such products and services. You will be entering into a separate contract with such Suppliers in connection with such products and services.

We do not guaranty that any refunds will apply.
