Resolution of Disputes
GanjaVacations (“GVJ”) is committed to customer satisfaction and will do its utmost to resolve any and all disputes and concerns. But if we are unsuccessful, you or we may pursue claims as explained in this section. You agree to:
- Not bring any suit or to initiate arbitration proceedings until 90 days after the date on which you communicate your Claim to us.
- You agree that any and all Claims will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you and we may assert Claims on an individual basis in small claims court if they qualify. This includes any Claims you assert against us, our subsidiaries, resort partners or any companies offering products or services through us (which are beneficiaries of this arbitration agreement).
Arbitrations will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA Consumer Rules. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules, except as provided in this section.
Any and all proceedings to resolve Claims will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, or representative action. The arbitrator will have authority to decide issues as to the scope of this arbitration agreement and the arbitrability of Claims. If for any reason a Claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you and we each waive any right to a jury trial. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your Claims to “GanjaVacations, 805 Lake Street, Suite 246, Oak Park, IL 60301. If we request arbitration against you, we will give you notice at the email address or street address you have provided.
This arbitration agreement shall be governed by and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law. An arbitration decision may be confirmed by any court with competent jurisdiction.

GVJ EXPRESSLY RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CORRECT ANY PRICING ERRORS ON THE WEBSITE AND/OR ON PENDING RESERVATIONS MADE UNDER AN INCORRECT PRICE.

Travel to Foreign Destinations
Although most travel, including travel to international destinations, is completed without incident, travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than others.

Booking Changes and Cancellations
You can change, amend or cancel your booking through the Website or by calling the telephone number listed on the Website. You agree to pay any resort partner required cancellation or change fees that you incur. In limited cases, some properties do not permit changes to or cancellations of reservations after they are made, as indicated in the description and/or conditions of that booking.
In the event that a property is unable to honor your booking, GVJ will not be liable for any cost incurred due to relocation or for any other related purpose.
If you do not show for the first night of your reservation but plan to check-in for subsequent nights in the reservation, you must confirm the reservation with GVJ or the resort no later than the original date of check-in to prevent cancellation of the whole booking. If you do not confirm the booking changes with GVJ or the resort the whole booking may be cancelled and refunds will only be due to you in line with the conditions of that booking and/or the rules and restrictions of the particular property, as notified in the booking process.
