Miscellaneous

The Terms will be governed by and construed under the laws of the State of New York. Use of the AAA WCNY site is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these terms and conditions, including without limitation this paragraph.

Any failure by AAA WCNY to enforce any of its rights under the Terms or applicable laws shall not constitute a waiver of such right. If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, you, AAA WCNY, and the court shall endeavor to give effect to the intent reflected in that provision, and the remaining Terms provisions shall retain their full force and effect.

You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and AAA WCNY as a result of this agreement or use of the AAA WCNY site. AAA WCNY's performance of this agreement is subject to existing laws and legal process, and nothing contained in this agreement is in derogation of AAA WCNY's right to comply with law enforcement requests or requirements relating to your use of the AAA WCNY Site or information provided to or gathered by AAA WCNY with respect to such use. If any part of this agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the agreement shall continue in effect.

This agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the user and AAA WCNY with respect to this web site and it supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written, between the user and AAA WCNY with respect to this web site. A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.

US DOT Fee Disclosure Requirements

Now in effect, consumer protection rules from the U.S. Department of Transportation (US DOT) require airlines to disclose baggage fees and complete fares including taxes and fees to consumers. Airlines are also required to give customers 24 hours to change reservations without having to pay re-booking fees. These new requirements enable a more informed traveling public, better enable consumers to budget vacation travel, and bring added flexibility to consumers' travel planning process. These US DOT requirements are applicable for all members and travelers booking travel on AAA.com.
