You acknowledge that Emerald Memories Inc DBA TripShock! pre-negotiates certain rates with lodging and attraction suppliers to facilitate the booking of reservations on your behalf. The rate displayed on the Website is a combination of the pre-negotiated activity rate for activities and hotels reserved on your behalf by Emerald Memories Inc DBA TripShock! and the facilitation fee retained by Emerald Memories Inc DBA TripShock! to compensate us for our services. You authorize Emerald Memories Inc DBA TripShock! to book reservations for the total reservation price, which includes the rate displayed on the Website, plus tax recovery charges, and service fees. You agree that your credit card will be charged by Emerald Memories Inc DBA TripShock! for the total reservation price. Upon submitting your reservation request you authorize Emerald Memories Inc DBA TripShock! to facilitate lodging and attraction reservations on your behalf, including making payment arrangements with lodging and attraction suppliers.

DBA TripShock!. A good faith effort will be made by both the supplier and Emerald Memories Inc. DBA TripShock! to quickly resolve reservations with incorrect rates and inventory.
You acknowledge that Emerald Memories Inc DBA TripShock! does not collect taxes for remittance to applicable taxing authorities. The tax recovery charges on prepaid lodging and attraction transactions are a recovery of the estimated transaction taxes (e.g. sales and use, excise tax, value added tax, etc) that Emerald Memories Inc DBA TripShock! pays to the lodging and attraction supplier in connection with your lodging and attraction reservations. The lodging and attraction suppliers invoice Emerald Memories Inc DBA Trip Shock for tax amounts. The lodging and attraction suppliers remit applicable taxes to the applicable taxing jurisdictions. Emerald Memories Inc DBA TripShock! does not act as co-vendors with the supplier with whom we book or reserve our customer's travel arrangements. Taxability and the appropriate tax rate vary greatly by location. The actual tax amounts paid by Emerald Memories Inc DBA TripShock! to the lodging and attraction suppliers may vary from the tax recovery charge amounts, depending upon the rates, taxability, etc. in effect at the time of the actual use of the property and attraction by our customers. We retain our service fees as compensation in servicing your travel reservation. Our service fees vary based on the amount and type of attraction or lodging reservation.
You may cancel or change your prepaid lodging or attraction reservation, but you will be charged the cancellation or change fee indicated in the rules and restrictions for the lodging or attraction reservation. If you do not cancel or change your reservation before the cancellation policy period applicable to the property or attraction you reserved, which varies prior to your date of arrival, you will be subject to a charge of applicable rates, tax recovery charges and service fees. In the event you do not show for the reservation, you must confirm the reservation changes with Emerald Memories Inc DBA TripShock! no later than the date of the first day of the reservation to prevent cancellation of your reservation. You must make refund requests for no-shows within 60 days after departure.
You agree to pay any cancellation or change fees that you incur. In limited cases, some properties or attractions do not permit changes to or cancellations of reservations after they are made, as indicated in the rules and restrictions for the lodging or attraction reservation. You agree to abide by the terms and conditions imposed with respect to your prepaid lodging or attraction reservations.
