Lowest Price Guarantee Terms and Conditions
What is the Lowest Price Guarantee?
We will guarantee that the combined value of our posted lowest market price less any loyalty currency (where applicable) will be better than the lowest publicly available market price of any other qualified seller. If our combined value is not better, we will beat the qualified seller’s lowest market price at the time of purchase or within 24 hours of purchase.
Reporting a lower rate claim.
You must contact us within 24 hours after Your purchase or booking with us to make a claim under the Lowest Price Guarantee. The lower rate must be available for purchase at the time You contact us, as determined solely by Sears Travel customer service representatives. All qualifying purchases or bookings must be made using a valid credit card with a United States billing address.
What is considered a lower rate?
The lower rate must be for an identical product or booking as determined in our sole discretion. All product or booking details must exactly match the details of the product You purchased or booked through Sears Travel, for example the specific carrier or provider (including class of service), the specific hotel (including room type), the specific rental car company and vehicle class, the applicable refund policy, the dates and times of travel or service, the specific routings (for example, same stopovers), and other purchase or booking details including cancellation policies.
