Terms and Conditions GrabAtour.net (last updated: Jan 05th, 2017)
Below are the Terms and Conditions (T&C’s) that apply when using our website and our services. Any new features and/or services to our current service shall also be subject to these T&C’s. To make these T&C’s easier to read we have provided additional everyday language summaries as a guide. They are just that, and are not legally binding.
1. Our offering
We connect you with locals to experience exciting things all over the world.
GrabAtour is a Price Comparison network for Local Experiences. We are a marketplace where demand (travelers) meets supply (local hosts). Through our website, travelers can book foodie experiences, tours and activities with local hosts from many different service providers all over the world.
Our Service is a search engine for tours and activities. GrabAtour does not provide, own or control any of the services and products available for access through Our Service, such as tours, local experiences, or other activities (the “Tours and Activities”). The Tours and Activities are owned, controlled or made available by third parties (the “Experience Providers”) either directly (e.g. tour guide) or as an agent (e.g. online travel agency). The Experience Providers are responsible for the Tours and Activities. The Experience Provider’s terms and privacy policies apply to your booking so you must agree to, and understand those terms. Further, the terms of the actual experience provider (e.g. tour operator) apply to your travel, so you must also agree to and understand those terms. Your interaction with any Experience provider accessed through Our Service is at your own risk and GrabAtour does not have any responsibility should anything go wrong with your booking or during your travel.
2. Legal entity
We are a private company registered in New Zealand.
GrabAtour is a private company having its offices in Auckland, New Zealand.

5. Booking via GrabAtour
If you make a booking through Our Service for Tours and Activities, that booking is made with the Experience Provider named on the booking page and Our Service only acts as a user interface. Accordingly, GrabAtour has no responsibility for the booking or the Tours and Activities because GrabAtour has no involvement in creating the description of the Travel Product, in defining the price and any fees, and in providing the Tours and Activities that you book. If you have any issues or disputes around your booking and/or the Travel Product, you agree to address and resolve these with the Experience Provider and not with GrabAtour.
