  18. Fees and Payments for Paid Accounts

    If you subscribe to any paid, premium Services, you agree to pay any and all applicable fees (e.g., recurring monthly or annual subscription fees for premium accounts) incurred in connection with your account at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. BudgetYourTrip will automatically charge your credit card at the beginning of the billing period, and billing will recur automatically at the interval you chose at signup until you change or terminate your account. Any change in the chosen payment method will go into effect for the next billing period. If you change your account to a type that does not require a paid subscription, you will retain access to the features for which you have already paid until the end of the current billing period. In contrast, if you terminate your account, such termination will be effective immediately, and you will not receive a refund for any amounts you already paid. You agree to pay any applicable taxes, and reimburse us for any collection costs and interest for any overdue amounts.

    If you receive a free offer for a specific number of days, you will not be charged during the free offer time period, but will be automatically charged on the day after your free time period has ended for the subsequent period, in advance. Thereafter, you will be charged at regular intervals depending on your choice of service (monthly, annually, etc.) until you decide to cancel. Please make a note of when your free offer will expire as you may not receive additional notice prior to the automatic charge if you do not cancel before the free offer time period expires.

    Unless we state in writing otherwise, all fees and charges are nonrefundable.

    You are solely responsible for any fees or charges incurred to access the Service through an Internet access provider or other third party, including without limitation charges incurred to receive SMS messages or other mobile access, which may be billed to You or deducted from Your prepaid balance by Your mobile provider. You agree that BudgetYourTrip is not liable in any way for any third party charges.

  19. Miscellaneous

    If any portion of this Agreement is deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable by any arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction, this Agreement as a whole shall not be deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable, but only that portion of this Agreement that is unlawful, void or unenforceable shall be stricken from this Agreement.

    You agree that if BudgetYourTrip does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the Agreement (or which BudgetYourTrip has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of BudgetYourTrip's rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to BudgetYourTrip.

    All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made in this Agreement shall survive your acceptance of this Agreement and the termination of this Agreement.

    This Agreement represents the entire understanding and agreement between you and BudgetYourTrip regarding the subject matter of the same, and supersedes all other previous agreements.
