TERMS AND CONDITIONS

1. Terms of the Service

VolaTom is an online platform (“platform”) where registered users (“Customers”) receive a travel counselling service (“Services”) by consultants (“Experts”) about the prices and the travel itinerary available on the Web, in order to answer specific needs required by Customers, relatively to specific and more favorable economic offers.

By using this Platform, You accept the terms and conditions here specified (“Terms”).

These Terms administer Your access and Your use of the Platformservices. VolaTom reserves at any time the right to update or modify these Terms. It is responsibility of the Customers to check this page for possible modifications in the Terms.

2. Services

VolaTomis not a travel agency, it is not intended to sell or buy air tickets. The Experts give exclusively a counselling Service regarding travels, such as, specifically: research and making of travel itinerary, suggestions regarding best available prices to buy tickets from third parties such as: Airline Companies or Travel Agencies; suggestions for frequent flyer programs (miles), Airline companies, airports and destinations. The Experts are available through the Services of the Platform to address the Customer in the procedure to follow, and possible details to complete the purchase of the proposed products.

The material payment of the proposed purchases and proposed flights is not included in the Services offered by VolaTom, with the consequence that it is Customer’s responsibility to proceed to the effective purchase of the proposed products, at the end of the counseling process and the payment of the Commission fee. Additional taxes from the Airline Companies (“Airline Companies”) or from the online/offline travel agencies (“Travel agencies”) used for the purchases, might bear on the products proposed by the Experts.

3. Rates and refunds

VolaTom charges a commission fee for the service rendered (“Commission fee”).

The amount of the Commission fee, set as a flat rate and proposed to the Customer, will depend on the complexity of the itinerary to find, on the cost of the final solution, on the flight class, on the number of travelers and other possible elements taken into consideration to build up the proposed product.

Once the Customer proceeds with the payment of the Commission fee, the latter can be reimbursed only in case the trip solution find by the Expert is not bookable. In this case, the Customer must give in the chat to the Expert, within 1 hour from the last trip solution, a simple image attesting the failed purchase of the flight. The Commission fee for Beat my price requests will be reimbursed if the Expert will not find a trip solution which allows Customer to save at least 25€, and including Commission fee proposal, compared to the price viewed by the Expert at the deal link given by the Customer. However if the Expert propose a trip solution more convenient than the deal offer provided by the Customer (es.: better stopovers, hold luggage included, direct flights, etc.) even with a higher price and the Customer express the will to book the solution in chat room than the Commission fee is not refundable.

4. Best Price Guarantee

Applicable only to Build my trip requests. VolaTom guarantees that the itinerary found by the Expert is the cheapest one. VolaTom will refund the Commission fee proposed by the Expert if the Customer, within 24 hours from the itinerary proposal, will send a mail to tito@volatom.it containing the proof, verifiable, of “the exact same solution” provided by the Expert, at a cheaper price by more than 50€ and bookable directly through an online travel agency.
