WELCOME TO JOYROUTES PTE. LTD. ("JOYROUTES" OR "WE") INTERNET WEBSITE LOCATED AT WWW.JOYROUTES.COM (THE "SITE").
JoyRoutes is an online platform that connects travellers with Travel Companies (travel agencies and tour operators). We allow different Travel Companies (each, a "Travel Company") to list their travel packages (each, a "Travel Company Service") and allow travellers to customise and book them through our platform. When a traveller books a travel package through our platform, they are getting into a contractual relationship with the Travel Company who provided the package and not with us as we are merely a platform that facilitates this transaction.
The travel packages, which can be customised according to the traveller’s needs, are directly provided by Travel Companies, which offer these travel packages on their own behalf, their own account, and under their own responsibility.
The JoyRoutes Services (as defined below) are available only to legal entities and individuals in business who can form legally binding contracts. To become a member of the Site ("Member") and use the JoyRoutes Services available from the Site, you must register for a JoyRoutes account ("Account"). You agree to provide true, accurate, and complete information, and update such information to maintain its truth, accuracy, and completeness. Misleading information about your location is not allowed on JoyRoutes. You must safeguard the Member ID and password you use to access this Site. We may rely on any use of the Site with your Member ID and password as authorised by you.
If you are a Member that wishes to provide Travel Company Services through the Site, you must complete the Travel Company registration process. As a Travel Company Member, you acknowledge and agree that your Account may be subject to verification as well as editorial and Feedback (as defined below).
JoyRoutes provides services ("JoyRoutes Services") that facilitate transactions between (a) Members who are travellers (each, a "Traveller"), and are eligible to post information about the Travel Company Services (as defined herein) that such Traveller needs and is interested in purchasing (each, a "Trip Request"), or to inquire or purchase Travel Company Services; and (b) Members who are travel companies (each, a "Travel Company") that offer Travel Company Services to Travellers. Travel Company Services are defined as services offered by the Travel Company to the Traveller on the JoyRoutes Site, including but not limited to trip proposals submitted by the Travel Company in response to a Traveller's Trip Request (each a "Trip Plan") and sample trip offerings (each a "Sample Trip").
When a Travel Company submits a Trip Plan to a Traveller, in addition to specifying the types of Travel Company Services it will provide and the costs associated with it, a Trip Plan shall include the contract terms that the Travel Company requires, such as, but not limited to, payment methods, payment terms, and cancellation policy.
By using the Services, you consent to receiving electronic communications from JoyRoutes. These electronic communications may include notices about applicable fees and charges, transactional information, and other information concerning or related to the JoyRoutes Services and Travel Company Services. These electronic communications are part of your relationship with JoyRoutes and you receive them as part of your subscription to the JoyRoutes Services. You agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures, or other communications that we send you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including that such communications be in writing.
As a Traveller, you agree that you will only complete your Trip Plan purchase via the JoyRoutes purchase confirmation page, and you will report the Travel Company to JoyRoutes if the Travel Company suggests that you purchase any Travel Company Services without informing JoyRoutes. As a Travel Company, you agree to use JoyRoutes’ system to complete the transaction and send the receipt to the Traveller for all JoyRoutes-originated business, whether first-time, repeat, or follow-on.
By registering as a Member, you acknowledge and agree that you contract directly with other Members of the Site to buy or sell Travel Company Services. Upon acceptance of a bid or agreement to provide Travel Company Services, Travel Company agrees to provide the Travel Company Services according to the terms of the final bid, the final agreement, or other terms agreed to by Travel Company and Traveller. JoyRoutes is not a party to any contract for any purchase and sale of Travel Company Services on the Site, including, without limitation, Trip Plans and Sample Trips. All rights and obligations for the purchase and sale of any Travel Company Services, including, without limitation, the purchase and sale of Trip Plans and Sample Trips, are solely between Travel Companies and Travellers. Each Member is solely responsible for the enforcement and performance of its rights and obligations for the purchase and sale of Travel Company Services, including, without limitation, Trip Plans and Sample Trips.a
JoyRoutes is not involved in the contracting between Travel Companies and Travellers, or in the Travel Companies' delivery of services to Travellers. JoyRoutes has no control over and does not guarantee the quality, safety, or legality of Travel Company Services advertised or provided on and/or through the Site, the truth or accuracy of listings, the qualifications, background, or abilities of Members, the ability of Travel Companies to deliver Services, the ability of Travellers to pay for Services, or that a Travel Company or Traveller will actually complete a transaction. Travel Company and Traveller must look solely to the other for enforcement and performance of all the rights and obligations pursuant to the transactions it entered into with the other on the Site, and any other terms, conditions, representations, or warranties associated with such dealings.
JoyRoutes makes available to Members on the Site various content and services provided by third parties, including, without limitation, services to verify a Member's identity or credentials ("Verification Service Providers") and a directory of Travel Companies that is populated with information from third party sources and from the Travel Companies themselves (collectively, "Third Party Content").

You agree to defend, hold harmless and indemnify JoyRoutes from and against any and all losses, costs, expenses, damages, or other liabilities incurred by JoyRoutes from and against any cost, liability, loss, damage, cause of action, claim, suit, proceeding, demand, or action brought by a third party against JoyRoutes: (a) in connection with your use of the Services, including, without limitation, any payment obligations incurred through use of the Services; or (b) resulting from: (i) your use of the Site; (ii) your decision to supply credit information via the Site, including personal financial information; (iii) your decision to submit postings and accept offers from other Members; (iv) any breach of contract or other claims made by Members with which you conducted business through the Site; (v) your breach of any provision of this Agreement; (vi) any liability arising from the tax treatment of payments or any portion thereof; (vii) any negligent or intentional wrongdoing by any Member; (viii) any act or omission of yours with respect to the payment of fees to any Travel Companies; (ix) your dispute of or failure to pay any invoice or any other payment; and/or (x) your obligations to a Travel Company.
