Our Paid Services
BIG tiny World Travel offers paid services including, but not limited to, the Taking Flight membership. Licensing and usage terms and conditions as outlined for our website above extend to our paid services.
We do not offer travel booking services, nor do we guarantee trips or the ability to travel. Our services aim only to educate and provide resources.
Our programs are designed to enable our members to make progress in the areas of traveling more. However, results may vary, and you are ultimately responsible for your success. We cannot guarantee specific results, including: (a) monetary gain; (b) physical items such as plane tickets or free hotel stays; (c) discounts, vouchers, or coupons; or (d) mastery of provided materials within a specific timeframe.
We also cannot be held liable for related circumstances beyond our control, including: (a) governmental or safety travel restrictions; (b) reservation cancellations; (c) weather; (d) visa or passport restrictions; or anything else that might restrict or hinder travel.
Payment plans are offered with each launch, and may differ from one launch to the next. The presence of an available payment plan during one launch does not guarantee its availability at the next.
Payments are typically collected either on a monthly or annual basis, though terms and prices may vary over time.
We currently offer “forever” pricing, which allows users to lock in a price at the time of purchase. Even as pricing increases over time, the user will retain the same pricing for as long as they are a member in good standing. “Good standing” includes, but is not limited to: (a) adhering to all terms and conditions as outlined on this page, (b) has no outstanding or late charges on their account, (c) has not been removed or has left the membership.
We reserve the right to cease “forever” pricing at any time. However, this will not be done without written notice to users at least 30 days prior to the change. Users will not be automatically enrolled at a higher price; they will be asked to explicitly opt back in.
Date of billing is determined by the date of original signup.
Users who choose the monthly option will be billed monthly on the date of original signup. Payments will continue automatically until/unless the user cancels.
Switching to the Annual Payment Plan
Members may choose to switch to annual billing anytime. The annual fee at the time of signup (as per the “forever” pricing) will be charged to the member upon the next monthly billing cycle, and the annual term will run for 12 months from that new date. The annual rate will not be prorated for any used months at the monthly rate.
Users who choose the annual option will be billed annually. To prevent interruption of service, your credit card will be billed a month prior to subscription expiration, on the date originally billed. You will receive notice of automatic renewal up to 31 days prior to billing, sent to the email address you provide at the time of signup.
Switching to the Monthly Payment Plan
Members may switch to monthly billing anytime within the first month of signup, up to three days prior to what would be the next monthly billing cycle, as outlined above. A partial refund will be issued, less the single month at the monthly rate, and monthly charges will begin with the next monthly billing cycle, at the monthly rate at the time of signup (as per the “forever” pricing).
Expired Credit Cards
We will attempt to notify you if a credit card on file fails or is about to expire. However, you are ultimately responsible for maintaining up-to-date payment information. We reserve the right to remove you from the membership without notice if payment fails. Once removed, you will be able to rejoin the membership the next time doors open and at the current rate of that launch.
Membership subscriptions can be cancelled at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once removed from the membership, users will not be able to rejoin until the next time doors open. They will lose their “forever” pricing as outlined above, and they will have to rejoin at the new current pricing.
If a user resumes membership payments (either monthly or annual) before their term expires, they will retain their “forever” pricing.
Monthly payments can be cancelled anytime up to three days prior to billing for the next cycle. For example, if billing takes place on the 4th of each month, members can cancel up to 11:59pm on the 1st. Users who cancel will be permitted to finish out the month they’ve paid for. No prorated refunds will be issued.
Annual payments can be cancelled at anytime. If cancellation is within the first month of payment, users will have an option to receive a prorated refund, less the first month, charged at the original sign-up monthly rate. If cancellation is after the first month, no refund will be issued. The user will be able to finish out the months paid for, but the subscription will not be automatically renewed at the end of the term.
Changes to these terms
We reserve the right to change these policies, including billing cycles, “forever” pricing, switching between annual and monthly options, and cancellation policies, at any time. However, we will issue a written notice at least 30 days prior to doing so.
