Terms and conditions
Welcome to www.tripshopper.com (‘the Site’). The site is a online travel search engine portal. Our goal is to make it easy for you to find available flights and to facilitate bookings.
Your use of the site is subject to these Conditions of use. Please read them carefully before using the site. If you use the site you signify that you agree with these conditions of use
We do not sell products
The site is a travel search engine. TripShopper does not provide, own or control any of the travel services and products that you can access through the site, such as flights, accommodations , tours , insurance , tickets , vacation rentals or rental cars (the “Products”). The Products are owned, controlled or made available by third parties (the “Vendors”) either directly (e.g. airline) or as an agent (e.g. online travel agency). The Vendors are responsible for the Products. The Vendors’ terms and privacy policies apply to your booking so you must agree to, and understand those terms. Further, the terms of the actual vendor (airline, hotel, etc.) apply to your travel, so you must also agree to and understand those terms. Your interaction with any Vendor accessed through the site is at your own risk and TripShopper does not take any responsibility should anything go wrong with your booking or during your travel / booking.
The display on the site of a Product or Vendor does not in any way imply, suggest, or constitute a recommendation by TripShopper of that Product or Vendor, or any sponsorship or approval of TripShopper by such Vendor, or any affiliation between such Vendor and TripShopper.
TripShopper hosts content, including prices, made available by or obtained from Vendors. TripShopper is in no way responsible for the accuracy, timeliness or completeness of such content. Since TripShopper has no control over the Products and does not verify the content uploaded by the Vendors, it is not possible for us to guarantee the prices displayed on the Site. 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. Some Products may also be sold in another currency than the one preset or chosen by you for the display of the search results. Our currency conversion is for information purposes only and should not be relied upon as accurate and real time; actual rates may vary and your payment provider (e.g. your credit card company) may charge conversion fees and apply another date’s currency rate.
Booking / Enquires through TripShopper
If you make a booking through the site, also called faciliated booking, that booking is made with the Vendor named on the booking page and the site only acts as a user interface. Accordingly TripShopper has no responsibility for the booking or the Product because TripShopper has no involvement in creating the description of the Product, in defining the price and any fees, and in providing the Products that you book. If you have any issues or disputes around your booking and/or the Product, you agree to address and resolve these with the Travel Provider and not with us.

You must ensure there will be enough time to; get off the plane, pick up your luggage and check in with your next airline.
