We reserve the right, at our discretion, to modify these Terms from time to time, which modification will be effective 7 days following the posting of the modification to our Platform, and will apply to causes of action arising after the effective date of the change.

3. Bookings over the Platform
If you choose to enter into a transaction with a Properture for the booking of Transportation Services, you agree and understand that you are entering into an agreement with our Vendor and Supplier; and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with Transportation Services imposed by the Vendor and Supplier. You acknowledge and agree that we only sell Booking services and are not the operator of the Transportation Services , and that, with the exception of our obligation to reserve the Transportation
Service and to transfer the payment hereunder, we disclaim all liability arising from or related to the Transportation Service provided or any such agreements between you and the Supplier. Upon your payment of the Booking price of the specific Transportation Services to Properture, your payment obligation to the Supplier is fulfilled, and Properture will remit to the Supplier the respective payment.
We process payments through a third party PSP (payment service provider). The Listing for a Transportation Service specifies the final Booking price (the “Booking Price”). As noted above the Supplier is required to either confirm or decline the booking within 48 hours of when the booking is requested. If a requested booking is declined (i.e. not confirmed by the applicable Supplier), the full Booking Price collected by Properture will be refunded to you, and any pre-authorization of your credit card will be released, if applicable, and you acknowledge we will refund these amounts as soon as practicable.
In connection with your requested booking, you will be asked to provide customary billing information such as name, billing address and credit card information either to Properture or to the third-party payment processor.
You agree to pay Properture for any confirmed bookings made in accordance with these Terms by one of the methods as may be described on the Platform, e.g. by credit card. You hereby authorize the collection of such amounts by charging the credit card provided as part of requesting the booking, via a third party online PSP or by one of the other payment methods as may be described on the Platform.
WHILE FOR MOST SUPPLIERS THE EMAIL WITH THE CONFIRMED BOOKING IS SUFFICIENT, THERE ARE CASES IN WHICH THE EMAIL CONFIRMATION ONLY CONTAINS A VOUCHER THAT YOU NEED TO SHOW IN ORDER TO COLLECT THE ACTUAL BOARDING VOUCHER. IN SUCH CASES THE LISTING AND THE CONFIRMATION EMAIL WILL CONTAIN DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS WITH REGARD TO THE TICKET COLLECTION.
In connection with your use of the Services, we may send you service announcements, administrative messages, and any other marketing information. You may opt out of some of those communications.
5. Changes and Cancellations
You may change or cancel your booking on the Platform under the menu item “Manage my Booking” by entering your name and the booking reference code.
If you cancel the requested booking before it is confirmed by a Supplier, Properture will cancel any pre-authorization to your credit card and/or refund any nominal amounts charged to your credit card in connection with the requested booking within a commercially reasonable time (7-14 business days). Once your booking is confirmed by the Supplier, our cancellation and refund policy applies, unless otherwise stated on the booking page of the specific Transportation Service.
IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THAT YOU CAN RECEIVE THE TRANSPORTATION SERVICES AT THE AGREED TIME AND PLACE. NO REFUND CAN BE GIVEN IF YOU ARRIVE LATER THAN THE AGREED TIME TO THE AGREED STATION, PLATFORM OR DEPARTURE POINT AND THEREFORE MISS A JOURNEY OR TRIP. WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU ARRIVE AT LEAST FIFTEEN (15) MINUTES PRIOR TO THE SCHEDULED TIME TO THE AGREED STARTING OR PICK-UP POINT, WITH THE EMAIL WITH THE CONFIRMED BOOKING – AFTER YOU COLLECTED THE VOUCHER (IF NEEDED).

Properture does not endorse or assume responsibility for any Vendors and Suppliers or any Transportation Service. In addition, although we require Suppliers to provide accurate information, we cannot confirm or verify the terms of each single journey. You should exercise caution and common sense to protect your personal safety and property when determining the identity of Suppliers who you contact via the Platform and suitability of Transportation Services that you book via the Platform.
Accordingly, we encourage you to take independent measures to confirm the terms of each journey you book via the Services.
Properture will not be a party to or in any way be responsible for monitoring any transaction between you and third-party providers of products or services, other than as provided herein.
