Section 1.2Clients and Potential Clients: You are being provided with the Service in order to understand the hospitality and management services that Sojourn provides and to access information regarding the same.

Section 5 Your Sojourn.
Section 5.1. Reservation. Subject to your complete and ongoing compliance with this Agreement, a Reservation grants you a limited exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicense revocable license to occupy the specific type of Property (“Booked Property”) for only the specific period of time that you have reserved through the Service (“Period of Occupancy”) and for the maximum number of occupants permitted by us, as confirmed in writing by us and provided by us to you by email or other means.

Section 6 Fees and Payments. When you make a Reservation, you will obligate yourself, subject to the applicable cancellation policy, to pay for the Service (the “Transaction”).
Section 6.1 The Fee. Sojourn reserves the right to determine pricing for the Service and any products that we offer for sale or Properties that you may reserve through the Service.

The promotional offers, unless specifically offered to you, will not apply to you, the Transaction or this Agreement.
Section 6.2 Currency. The Properties are all located in the United States thus Sojourn issues payment terms in USD only. If the currency charged is not the same as the currency of your country, Sojourn bares no responsibility for discrepancy in the exchange rate resulting in a slightly different charge. What you are actually charged is dependent upon the exchange rate on the day that the Transaction is processed. If you use a 3rd party platform, the Transaction may be expressed in the currency of your country.
Section 6.3 Payment Due. Unless other arrangements have been made, you must pay for the Reservation 7 days prior to the scheduled date that the Reservation begins.

If your cancellation qualifies as a “Cancellation without Penalty”, any and all sums charged will be refunded save and except for if you have paid for the Transaction by credit card prior to your cancellation, you will be charged a 3% service fee.
