Using your contact information to send you regular news about travel-related products and services. You can unsubscribe from email marketing communications quickly, easily and at any time. All you need to do is click on the ‘Unsubscribe’ link included in each newsletter or other communication.

Based on your information, individualised offers might be shown to you on the TTEPL website, in mobile apps or on third-party websites/apps (including social media sites) and the content of the site displayed to you might be personalised. These could be offers that you can book directly on the TTEPL website, on co-branded sites, or other third-party offers or products we think you might find interesting.

When you participate in other promotional activities (such as sweepstakes, referral programmes or competitions), only relevant information will be used to administer these promotions.

Communicating with you: There might be other times when we get in touch, including by email, by chatbot, by post, by phone or by texting you. Which method we choose depends on the contact information you’ve previously shared.

We process the communications you send to us. There could be several reasons for this, including:

Responding to and handling any requests you or your booking agency have made. TTEPL also offers customers and booking agencies several ways to exchange information, requests, and comments about Booking agencies and existing booking arrangements via TTEPL.

Providing the best price applicable to you, depending on where you are based: When you search our apps or website, for example to find an accommodation, a rental car, or a flight, we process your IP address to confirm whether you are in the European Economic Area (EEA) or in another country. We do this to offer you the best price for the region (EEA) or country (non-EEA) where you are based.

Customer reviews and other destination-related information: During and after your trip/stay, we might invite you to submit a review. We can also make it possible for the people you’re travelling/staying with or whom you’ve booked a reservation for to do this instead. This invite asks for information about the booking agency or the destination.

Call monitoring: When you make calls to our customer service team, TTEPL uses an automated telephone number detection system to match your telephone number to your existing reservations. This can help save time for both you and our customer service staff. However, our customer service staff may still ask for authentication, which helps to keep your reservation details confidential.

During calls with our customer service team, live listening might be carried out or calls might be recorded for quality control and training purposes. This includes the usage of the recordings for the handling of complaints, legal claims and for fraud detection.

We do not record all calls. In the case that a call is recorded, each recording is kept for a limited amount of time before being automatically deleted. This is unless we have determined that it’s necessary to keep the recording for fraud investigation or legal purposes. You can read more about this below.

Promotion of a safe and trustworthy service: To create a trustworthy environment for you, the people you bring with you on your trip/stay, TTEPL’s business partners and our booking agencies, we continuously analyse and use certain personal data to detect and prevent fraud and other illegal or unwanted activities.

Legal purposes: Finally, in certain cases, we may need to use your information to handle and resolve legal claims and disputes, for regulatory investigations and compliance, to enforce the TTEPL online reservation service terms of use or to comply with lawful requests from law enforcement.

Data sharing with third parties

In certain circumstances, we’ll share your personal data with third parties. These third parties include:

The booking agency you booked: To complete your booking arrangement, we transfer relevant reservation details to the booking agency you have booked. This is one of the most essential things we do for you.

Depending on the booking arrangement and the Booking agency, the details we share can include your name, contact and payment details, the names of the people accompanying you and any other information or preferences you specified when you made your booking arrangement.

In certain cases, we also provide some additional historical information about you to the Booking agency. This includes whether you’ve already booked with them in the past, the number of completed bookings you’ve made with TTEPL, a confirmation that no misconduct has been reported about you, the percentage of bookings you’ve cancelled in the past or whether you’ve given reviews about past bookings.

If you have a query about your trip/stay, we may contact the booking agency to handle your request. Unless payment is made during the booking process, via the TTEPL website, we will forward your credit card details to the booking agency for further handling (assuming you’ve provided us with those details).

In cases of Booking arrangement-related claims or disputes, we may provide the booking agency with your contact details and other information about the booking process, as needed to resolve the situation. This can include, but might not be limited to, your email address and a copy of your reservation confirmation as proof that a booking arrangement was made or to confirm reasons for cancellation.

For completeness, booking agencies will further process your personal data outside of the control of TTEPL. Booking agencies may also ask for additional personal data, for instance to provide additional services, or to comply with local restrictions. If available, please read the Privacy Statement of the booking agency to understand how they process your personal data.

Connectivity Providers: Please note that certain booking agencies may need us to share your personal data with a contracted Connectivity Provider to be able to finalise and administer your reservation. Connectivity providers act on behalf of booking agencies and help them to manage their reservations.

Your local TTEPL office: To support the use of TTEPL services, your details may be shared with subsidiaries of the TTEPL corporate group, including for customer service.

Third-party service providers: We use service providers from outside of the TTEPL corporate group to support us in providing our services.

These include:

Customer support

Market research

Fraud detection and prevention (including anti-fraud screening)

Insurance claims


We use third parties to process payments, handle chargebacks or provide billing collection services. When a chargeback is requested for your booking arrangement, either by you or by the holder of the credit card used to make your reservation, we need to share certain reservation details with the payment service provider and the relevant financial institution so they can handle the chargeback. This may also include a copy of your reservation confirmation, or the IP address used to make your reservation. We may share information with relevant financial institutions if we consider it strictly necessary for fraud detection and prevention purposes.

Marketing services: We share personal data with advertising partners, including your email address, as part of marketing TTEPL services via third parties (to ensure that relevant advertisements are shown to the right audience). We use techniques such as hashing to enable the matching of your email address with an existing customer database, so that your email address cannot be used for other purposes. For information on other personalised advertisements and your choices, please read our cookie policy.

Advertising partners: We use advertising partners, such as metasearch providers, to allow you to compare our offers with offers from other Online Travel Agencies (OTAs). When you make a reservation on TTEPL after using an advertising partner, we will send the details of the reservation that you made on TTEPL to that partner.

Advertisers from Third Parties and Links to Other Websites: The TTEPL Services may have ads from third parties and links to other websites and apps. Advertising partners from outside our site may get information about you when you use their services, ads, and content.

Use of Third-Party Advertising Services: We give ad companies information that helps them show you more useful and relevant ads and figure out how well they're doing. When we do this, we never give out your name or any other information that could be used to find you. We instead use an advertising identifier like a cookie, a device identifier, or a code that we get from encrypting other information, like an email address, in a way that can't be reversed. Even though we don't tell ad companies exactly what you searched for, we may give them an advertising identifier and an idea of how much the ads they show you are worth so they can show you more appropriate and effective ads. You may also see ads from other advertisers that are more useful to you from some ad companies.

Competent authorities: We disclose personal data to law enforcement to the extent that it is required by law or is strictly necessary for the prevention, detection or prosecution of criminal acts and fraud, or if we are otherwise legally obliged to do so. We may need to further disclose personal data to competent authorities to protect and defend our rights or properties, or the rights and properties of our business partners.

Business partners: We work with many business partners around the world. These business partners distribute and advertise TTEPL services, including the services and products of our booking agencies. When you make a reservation on one of our business partners’ websites or apps, certain personal data that you give them, such as your name and email address, your address, payment details and other relevant information, will be forwarded to us to finalise and manage your booking arrangement. If customer service is provided by the business partner, TTEPL will share relevant reservation details with them (as and when needed) to provide you with appropriate and efficient support.

When you make a reservation through one of our business partners’ websites, the business partners can receive certain parts of your personal data related to the specific reservation and your interactions on these partner websites. This is for their commercial purposes. When you make a reservation on a business partners’ website, please also take the time to read their privacy notice if you’d like to understand how they process your personal data.

For fraud detection and prevention purposes, we may also exchange information about our users with business partners – but only when strictly necessary If an insurance claim is made, concerning you and a Booking agency, we may provide the necessary data (including personal data) to the insurance company for further processing.

Partner Offer: We may present you with a ‘Partner Offer. When you book a stay marked ‘Partner Offer,’ your reservation will be facilitated by a booking agency who is separate from the accommodation you’re booking. As part of the reservation process, we’ll need to share some relevant personal data with this business partner. If you book a Partner Offer, please review the information provided in the booking process or check your reservation confirmation for more information about the booking agency and how your personal data will be further processed by them.

TTEPL is a global business. The data that we collect from you, as described in this Privacy Statement, could be made accessible from, transferred to, or stored in countries which may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information. In such cases, we will protect your data as described in this Privacy Statement.

This may also be applicable if you are in the European Economic Area (EEA). Countries your data may be transferred to may not have laws that provide the same level of protection for your personal data as laws within the EEA. Where this is the case, we will put appropriate safeguards in place to make sure that these transfers comply with European privacy law.

When your data is transferred to third-party service providers, we establish and implement appropriate contractual, organisational, and technical measures with them. This is done by putting in place Standard Contractual Clauses as approved by the European Commission, by examining the countries to which the data may be transferred, and by imposing specific technical and organisational security measures.

In certain specific cases, we transfer your data outside the EEA because it is in your interest or is necessary to conclude or perform the contract, we have with you. For instance, when you make a reservation on TTEPL or through a business partner, we might need to transfer your data to a booking agency or business partner who is located outside the EEA

How is personal data shared within the TTEPL corporate group?

We may receive personal data about you from other companies in the TELLIS TRAVEL EXPERIENCES (OPC) PRIVATE LIMITED (India) Private Limited.

corporate group, or share your personal data with them, for the following purposes:

To provide services (including to make, administer and manage reservations or handle payments);

To provide customer service;

To detect, prevent and investigate fraudulent, other illegal activities and data breaches;

For analytical and product improvement purposes;

To provide personalised offers or send you marketing with your consent or as otherwise permitted by applicable law;

For hosting, technical support, overall maintenance and maintaining security of such shared data;

To ensure compliance with applicable laws;

As applicable and unless indicated otherwise, for purposes A to F, TTEPL relies on its legitimate interests to share and receive personal data. For purpose G, TTEPL relies, where applicable, on compliance with legal obligations (such as lawful law enforcement requests).

How is your personal data shared and further processed for insurance services?

When offering insurance, TTEPL may have to use and share personal data that is relevant to the insurance product. This data relates to you as a potential or actual policyholder, the beneficiaries under a policy, family members, claimants and other parties involved in a claim:

To provide offers, arrange insurance cover and handle insurance claims, some personal data, provided to us during the booking process, (‘General Order Data’) may have to be shared with TTEPL. You may also be asked to provide additional information, such as names of family members or other beneficiaries or details about a claim (‘Insurance-Specific Data’).

If you make a claim under an insurance policy, this claim may be directly handled by the insurer. This means that you may be asked to provide personal data to submit the claim directly to them. The insurer will inform you accordingly at the point of collection of your information. When your claim is handled by the insurer, TTEPL may receive information about the status of your claim to provide you with customer support services.

How does TTEPL process communications that you and your booked agency may send via TTEPL?

TTEPL can offer you and booking agencies several ways to communicate about the trip/stay Services and existing booking arrangements, directing the communications via TTEPL. This also allows you and your booking agency to contact TTEPL with questions about your booking arrangement through the website, our apps, and the other channels that we make available.

TTEPL accesses communications and may use automated systems to review, scan, and analyse communications for the following reasons:

Security purposes;

Fraud prevention;

Compliance with legal and regulatory requirements;

Investigations of potential misconduct;

Product development and improvement;


Customer engagement (including to provide you with information and offers that we believe may be of interest to you)

Customer or technical support

We reserve the right to review or block the delivery of communications that we, in our sole discretion, believe might contain malicious content or spam, or pose a risk to you, booking agencies, TTEPL or others.

All communications sent or received using TTEPL communication tools will be received and stored by TTEPL. Booking agencies and Business partners you’ve booked a booking arrangement through might also choose to communicate with you directly by email or through other channels that TTEPL does not control.

How does TTEPL make use of social media?

At TTEPL, we use social media in separate ways. We use it to facilitate the use of online reservation services, but also to promote our booking agencies’ travel-related products and services and to advertise, improve and facilitate our own services.

Note that the use of social media features can result in the exchange of personal data between TTEPL and the social media service provider, as we describe below. You are free not to use any of the social media features available to you.

Sign in with your social media account. We offer you the opportunity to sign in to a TTEPL user account with one of your social media accounts. We do this to reduce the need for you to remember different usernames and passwords for different online services. After you’ve signed in once, you’ll be able to use your social media account to sign into your TTEPL account. You can decouple your TTEPL user account from your chosen social media account any time you want to.

Integration of social media plugins. We have also integrated social media plugins into the TTEPL website and apps. This means that when you click or tap on one of the buttons (such as Facebook’s ‘Like’ button), certain information is shared with these social media providers. If you’re logged into your social media account when you click or tap one of these buttons, your social media provider may relate this information to your social media account. Depending on your settings, they might also display these actions on your social media profile, to be seen by others in your network.

Other social media services and features. We may integrate other social media services (like social media messaging) for you to interact with TTEPL or with your contacts about our services. We may maintain social media accounts and offer apps on several social media sites. Whenever you connect with TTEPL through social media, your social media service provider may allow you to share information with us.

If you choose to share, your social media provider will inform you about which information will be shared. For example, when you sign into a TTEPL user account using your social media account, certain information from that account may be shared with TTEPL. This includes your email address, your age, and the profile pictures you’ve saved – depending on what you authorise in your social media account.

When you register with a TTEPL social media app or connect to a social media messaging service without a TTEPL user account, the information you choose to share with us may include the basic information available in your social media profile (including your email address, status updates and a list of your contacts).

We’ll use this information to help provide you with the service you requested – for example, to forward a message you want to send to your contacts, or to create a personalised user experience in the app or on our websites. It means that if you want us to, we can tailor our services to suit your needs, connecting you and your friends with the best travel destinations and analysing and improving our travel-related services.

Your social media provider will be able to tell you more about how they use and process your data when you connect to TTEPL through them. This can include combining the personal data they collect when you use TTEPL through them with information they collect when you use other online platforms you have also linked to your social media account.

If you decide to connect using your Facebook or Google account, please review the following links for information about how these parties use data they receive: Facebook and Google.

What security and retention procedures does TTEPL put in place to safeguard your personal data?

We have procedures in place to prevent unauthorised access to, and the misuse of, personal data.

We use appropriate business systems and procedures to protect and safeguard the personal data you give us. We also use security procedures and technical and physical restrictions for accessing and using the personal data on our servers. Only authorised personnel are permitted to access personal data in the course of their work.

We’ll keep your personal data for as long as is necessary to enable you to use our services or to provide our services to you (including maintaining any TTEPL user accounts you may have), to comply with applicable laws, resolve any disputes and otherwise to allow us to conduct our business, including to detect and prevent fraud and/or other illegal activities. All personal data we keep about you as a TTEPL customer is covered by this Privacy Statement.

For added protection, we strongly recommend that you set up two-factor authentication for your TTEPL user account. This adds an extra authentication step, to make sure that anyone who gets hold of your username and password (e.g., through phishing or social engineering) won’t be able to get into your account. You can set this up in the Security section of your account settings.

How does TTEPL treat personal data belonging to children?

Our services aren’t intended for children under 18 years old, and we’ll never collect their data unless it’s provided by (and with the consent of) a parent or guardian. The limited circumstances we might need to collect the personal data of children under 18 years old include: as part of a reservation, the purchase of other travel-related services, or in other exceptional circumstances (such as features addressed to families). Again, this will only be used and collected as provided by a parent or guardian and with their consent.

If we become aware that we’ve processed the information of a child under 18 years old without the valid consent of a parent or guardian, we will delete it.

This information serves to substantiate your inquiry and improve the handling of your request. Your message may be linked to various actions taken by you on the TTEPL website. Information collected will be solely used to provide you with support relating to your booking and better understand your feedback. A statement of this information is expressly provided on a voluntary basis and with your consent, art. 6 par. 1a GDPR.
