If, for any reason, the service isn't available in the new flight to fulfill your request (only where your original request has been accepted), any amounts paid by you will be refunded to the credit card that was used to pay for the Bid 4 Biz service.
If your booking is transferred to a flight operated by an airline other than Scoot the Airline cannot guarantee the service you requested. In this case any amounts paid by you for the Bid 4 Biz service will be refunded to the credit card that was used to pay for the same service. There will be no refunds, credits, or exchanges once your request has been accepted by the Airline, except under the following conditions:
- The flight for which your request was accepted was cancelled.
- The flight for which your request was accepted was cancelled, and the Airline re-accommodated you on another flight but without offering you the service.
- Your request was accepted, but you were not granted the service for reasons attributable to the Airline, including, but not limited to, a change in equipment, a delay in the connecting flight that resulted in your missing the connection, but excluding reasons attributable to your actions.
