Entry by a Guest or Guests (a maximum of 6 Guests in total are permitted for any group Booking unless you receive the prior written consent of the Company) to the Lounge may be booked in the following ways:
Bookings made in advance will be confirmed by the Company or the relevant Booking Partner via email or by provision of a booking reference number upon acceptance by the Company of a completed booking form and full payment in respect of each Guest. The booking confirmation will reference the number of Guests, types of Facilities booked, and any other arrangements that have been agreed between you and us.
All Bookings will be subject to availability, acceptance of these Terms, and full payment in respect of each Guest.
A Booking is made solely by you, and the Booking may not be transferred to an agent or third party without our written consent. Where the Facilities have been booked in advance of the date of travel, you must notify us of any desired changes to the Booking (including, but not limited to, the number of Guests and types of Facilities) as soon as possible and prior to the date of travel.
A reduction in the number of Guests in the Booking will be subject to our Cancellation Policy below. In the event you notify us of changes to the Booking other than a reduction in the number of Guests (e.g., flight or date change) at least 48 hours prior to the date and time of arrival at the Lounge indicated by your Booking, we may charge you a $10.00 change fee per Guest and any applicable additional Entry Price. Changes made after such 48 hour period, if available, may be subject to an additional change fee. All changes to Bookings are subject to availability.
Should you make changes to the Facilities booked or the number of Guests in the Booking, we reserve the right to make changes to the applicable rates and/or Facilities offered by us. You shall be responsible for paying for all Facilities not included within the original Booking, including the Premium Facilities (whether such additional Facilities are requested in advance of the booking or at the time of attendance at the Lounge).
In the unfortunate circumstance that you have to cancel or postpone your confirmed Booking at any time prior to the date of travel, our Cancellation Policy is detailed below.
Should we need to make any amendments to your Booking, we reserve the right to offer alternative dates and/or Facilities.
Our acceptance of your Booking is on the understanding that circumstances beyond our control may prevent us from meeting our obligations at the relevant time in which case we will not be liable for any loss or damages suffered by you or any third party.
We may cancel the booking:
(a) on immediate written notice to you in the event that any monies due and payable under these Terms (whether demanded or not) have not been paid to us in accordance with any applicable payment details; or
(b) if the Booking might, in our opinion, prejudice our reputation.
In the event we cancel your booking pursuant to 4(a) or 4(b), you will not receive any refund.

These Terms, your use of the Lounge and Facilities, and any other matter relating to Company will be governed by the laws of the Country or State in which the Lounge is situated, without regard to its conflicts of laws principles and must be submitted for arbitration.
These Terms and each of its parts evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce, and the United States Arbitration Act applies in all cases and governs the interpretation and enforcement of the arbitration rules and arbitration proceedings. Any claims arising out of, relating to, or connected with these Terms must be asserted individually in binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA” ) in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Terms and the AAA Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (including without limitation utilizing desk, phone or video conference proceedings where appropriate and permitted to mitigate costs of travel). The arbitrator shall not conduct any form of class or collective arbitration nor join or consolidate claims by or for individuals. The Arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitration and the parties' agreement to arbitrate will be deemed to be self-executing, and if either party fails to appear at any properly-noticed arbitration proceeding, an award may be entered against such party despite said failure to appear. There are only two exceptions to this arbitration agreement:
First, if we reasonably believe that you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate these Terms, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Second, any claim of $1,000 or less may, at the option of the claiming party, be resolved in small claims court, if the claim and the parties are within the jurisdiction of the small claims court.
BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, YOU HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT YOU MAY HAVE TO A COURT TRIAL (OTHER THAN SMALL CLAIMS COURT AS PROVIDED ABOVE) OR TO SERVE AS A REPRESENTATIVE, AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, OR IN ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY, OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A MEMBER OF A CLASS OF CLAIMANTS, IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION OR OTHER PROCEEDING FILED AGAINST US AND/OR RELATED THIRD PARTIES.
REGARDLESS OF ANY STATUTE OR LAW TO THE CONTRARY, ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO ACCESS TO OR USE OF AN ESCAPE LOUNGE OR THESE TERMS MUST BE FILED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISES OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED.
You represent and warrant that you have the full right, power, and authority to enter into these Terms and perform your obligations under these Terms.
If you are a corporate entity, you represent and warrant that you have the right to provide us with information regarding Guests, and that our use of such information is in accordance with these Terms will not violate any third party's rights.
These Terms represent the entire understanding of the parties and supersedes all previous and contemporaneous agreements and statements whether written or oral regarding the subject matter of these Terms. These Terms may be amended or modified only by a written instrument signed by both of the parties hereto. No failure or delay by a party in exercising any right or remedy under these Terms will operate as a waiver thereof, and any waiver will only be enforceable if made in a signed writing by the party waiving the right or remedy. In the event that any term of these Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the term will be modified to be enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law (or severed if that is impermissible), and the remainder of these Terms will remain valid and enforceable. These Terms will not be construed against the drafter. Sections 9, 10, 13 and 15 of these Terms will survive any termination of these Terms in perpetuity. You agree that any agreements, including, but not limited to, acceptance of these Terms, made by and between you and us in electronic form are as legally binding as if made in physical written form.
