If you use this site, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account information. You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account.

USE OF GHM TRAVEL
You may only use GHM Travel to make legitimate reservations or purchases and shall not use GHM Travel for any other purpose, including without limitation, to make any speculative, false or fraudulent reservation or any reservation in anticipation of demand.
In its sole discretion, in addition to any other rights or remedies available to GHM Travel and without any liability whatsoever, GHM Travel at any time and without notice may terminate or restrict your access to accommodation services.
You acknowledge that GHM Travel arranges certain pre-paid room rates with Third Party Suppliers to facilitate the booking of reservations on your behalf. Rates are a combination of the pre-negotiated room rate for accommodation’s reserved on your behalf by GHM Travel and the facilitation fee accrued by GHM Travel to compensate us for our services. You approve GHM Travel to book accommodations for your negotiated pre-paid reservation price. GHM Travel will process the agreed upon room rate, tax recovery charges, costs, and GHM Travel service fees. You agree that the listed credit card will be charged by GHM Travel for the entire accommodation price. Once your reservation request is submitted, GHM Travel is authorized to secure hotel reservations on your behalf, including making payment arrangements with hotel suppliers.
GHM Travel does not collect taxes for remittance to applicable taxing authorities. Tax recovery charges for prepaid hotel accommodations are a recovery of the estimated transaction taxes (e.g. sales and use, occupancy, room tax, excise tax, value added tax, etc) that is paid by GHM Travel to Third Party Suppliers used for your hotel accommodations. Third Party Suppliers provide GHM Travel invoices for tax amounts. Third Party Suppliers remit applicable taxes to the applicable taxing jurisdictions. GHM Travel is not a co-vendor with the Third Party Suppliers with which travel arrangements and/or accommodations are made for our customers. Tax-ability and the appropriate tax percentage vary by location. Actual tax amounts paid by GHM Travel to Third Party Suppliers may vary from the tax recovery charge amounts, depending upon the rates, tax-ability, etc. in effect at the time of the actual use of the hotel by our customers. We retain our service fees as compensation in providing your travel accommodations. Service fees may vary based on the amount and type of hotel accommodation.
Customers are allowed to make changes to reservations without penalty or fee. In the experience of GHM Travel, there are many cases that a customer may have to change a date, name, or even cancel part of the accommodation. Because of this we allow our customers to make changes without added pressure and to be sure that we can meet their accommodation needs. The changing of dates to the accommodation may result in an average price per night change. However some Third Party Suppliers do charge an additional fee. Also, some customers have made amendments that are deemed excessive and constitute an abuse of customer service. GHM Travel reserves the right to apply the following penalties, if the need does arise. If a reservation exceeds 3 rooms and then more than 45% of the reservation is amended, the penalty of $50 per amendment may apply. Due to this, we request that you finalize your rooming list 30 days prior to the earliest date of the first check-in. Should the need arise to change or cancel more than 45% of your original accommodation, you agree to pay a penalty of no less than 1 night per room and other penalties the Third Party Supplier may impose. GHM Travel reserves the right to waive this amendment policy at any time and acknowledges that this policy is in place for customers that abuse our customer service and is not in place for customers that work in the normal pattern of business travel.
CHANGE IN TRAVEL
GHM Travel is able to offer such competitive pricing due to its ability to reserve, hold and pre-pay for rooms for its clients at the time of reservation. Thus, changes made after final accommodation is agreed upon, but prior to 30 days before check- in will not be assessed a fee. Any reductions due for changes or cancellations will be applied as credit for customer’s next booking. Credit will expire if not utilized within 180 days of issue. Changes made after 30 days prior to check-in will be subject to a 1 night room and tax penalty for each change made, plus any fees, costs, and taxes charged by the hotel. In addition, should the entire reservation be cancelled you agree to pay a cancellation fee in the amount of 25% of the original total cost of the room accommodation. This cancellation fee reflects the services already performed on your behalf, monies already paid on your behalf, and monies earned for services deemed performed. GHM Travel reserves the right to waive this cancellation fee at any time, at its sole discretion on a case by case basis. GHM Travel is unable to accept any change requests after 72 hours prior to check-in. GHM Travel does not provide refunds for early check-outs or no-shows. The law governing this Authorization, Terms and Conditions and Cancellation Policy is the law of the State of Nevada. The Forum for any and all disputes between GHM Travel and you or your company is in Clark County, Nevada.
