How does Tripshelf Work? / Functioning of the Site
Tripshelf is a communication and marketing platform used by tour operators / sellers / travel agents to market their packages and offers to website visitors / users who may at their discretion and best judgement choose to buy / book / reserve / inquire about an offer. Tripshelf may also further communicate this offer over email / phone / in-person and in doing so is not creating any principal agent relationship but merely communicating the different offers available. The delivery of services is controlled by the tour operator / seller and Tripshelf does not guarantee delivery or quality of delivery.
Tripshelf provides an online platform that connects tour operators / travel agents collectively known as "travel agents" or "Operators" providing travel, food, shopping and other social experiences / tour packages / holiday packages / information collectively known as "packages" to users who are seeking such information (tour operators / travel agents and users collectively the “User”). Tripshelf does not itself provide any tour packages to Users through this Site and merely acts as a marketplace. Unless explicitly specified otherwise, Tripshelf responsibilities are limited to:
(i) facilitating the availability of the Site and services; and
(ii) serving as the limited payment collection agent of each tour operator for the purpose of accepting payments from Users on behalf of the tour operator.
Tripshelf cannot and does not control the content contained in any listings put on the Site by a tour operator / travel agent. Therefore, Tripshelf is not responsible for and disclaims any and all liability related to any and all listings. Accordingly, any bookings will be made at the User’s own risk.
These services are accessible on the Site and any other websites through which Tripshelf makes the services available and as an application for mobile devices.
Users can use the Site to book packages that are being offered by operators on the Site.
Operators are required to agree to the terms and conditions listed in the Operator Terms and Conditions before providing services on the Site.
Because Tripshelf does not control interactions among between Users and packages or other persons or companies, and because Tripshelf cannot guarantee the true identity, age, nationality of Service users, and because Tripshelf has limited control, if any, over the quality, safety, morality, legality, truthfulness or accuracy of various aspects of the Service you agree that you bear all risk and you agree to release us (and our officers, directors, shareholders, agents, employees, affiliates, subsidiaries, and third party partners) from claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, now and in the future, arising out of or in any way connected with your use of the Service, your Third Party Transactions, and/or our resolution of any disputes among users. You further waive any and all rights and benefits otherwise conferred by any statutory or non-statutory law of any jurisdiction that would purport to limit the scope of a release or waiver.

Tripshelf shall not be liable to independently verify/certify any information offered by you on the Site.

Operators must carry and present to the User booking a package an original, authorised, Government issued Proof of Identity (such as Driver’s License, Voter ID Card or Passport) if requested for by Tripshelf or the User.
In the event that the package is not delivered fully i.e. services as promised in the package are not delivered, by the operator upon the Booking of the package, Tripshelf reserves the right to, inter alia, unilaterally cancel the Package, forfeit the fee payable to such operator for the package and penalise the operator for quantifiable damages for reimbursement of all costs associated with such package and related costs. Repeated mis-delivery by operators may also lead to a unilateral cancellation and expulsion of such operator from the Site without prior notice.
In the event of a claim or dispute raised by a User booking a package with regard to such package, Tripshelf reserves the right to withhold the payment payable to the operator till such reasonable time as it may take for Tripshelf to verify such claim or dispute as the case may be, and if on the basis of facts and evidence perused by Tripshelf it is found that the claim or dispute raised by such User is valid, Tripshelf reserves the right to forfeit the fee payable to such operator for the package and penalise the operator for quantifiable damages for reimbursement of all costs associated with such package. Repeated claims and disputes againstoperator may also lead to a unilateral cancellation and expulsion of such Operator from the Site without prior notice.

In no event shall Tripshelf be liable for any costs, damages, injury or claims associated with your booking/conducting a package offered on the Site or shared with Tripshelf via mail / any written communication.
Travel Contract Bookings facilitated by Tripshelf, TripPay, & Payment Guarantee
To facilitate in booking a package, Tripshelf has created a software solution called TripPay.
A tour operator will first create a payment request and list down the package elements and cancellation policies provided against the payment request and whether the payment request is an advance or full payment.
If satisfactory, the user may choose to pay the amount. Once the amount is paid, the amount rests with Tripshelf until such time that the tour operator does not send the user the required voucher / receipt as agreed upon in the payment request.
The user has the right to review the voucher / receipt and accept or reject the same.
In the event the user rejects the voucher, subject to clarification with the customer, the amount is refundable.
Following the user's acceptance, Tripshelf will release the payment to the tour operator.
User agrees to abide by the tour operator's cancellation policy and refund policy once the vouchers are approved.
Tripshelf will not release any payment to the tour operator without the user's explicit acceptance which is an OTP validated process.
The above is the payment guarantee that Tripshelf provides.
Payment guarantee in no way guarantees the trip / experience / services / validity of the package or offer.
TripPay is a solution created to facilitate the payment and validation of vouchers / receipt, and is not a guarantee of holiday package services.
A user must use their own discretion to engage in the contract with a seller on the site.
Any references in the Site to an operator or a User being “verified” (or similar language) only indicate that the Operator / User has completed a relevant verification process, and does not represent anything else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by Tripshelf about any Operator / User, including of the Operator's / User’s identity and whether the Operator / User is trustworthy, safe or suitable. Instead, any such description is intended to be useful information for you to evaluate when you make your own decisions about the identity and suitability of others whom you contact or interact with via the Site. We therefore recommend that you always exercise due diligence and care when deciding to book a package or hosting a User.
Cancellations facilitated by Tripshelf
