Change in Service Tax
Due to the Finance Bill 2015 issued by the Department of Revenue, Ministry of Finance, Government of India, please be informed that effective Monday 1 June 2015, the Service Tax rate will be increased from 12.36% to 14%. However, as we value your support and as an added benefit, QVI will absorb this additional cost for June 2015 and will only enforce the new Service Tax rate effective Wednesday 1 July 2015.
What does the 14% Service Tax rate mean for you?
This means that effective Wednesday 1 July 2015, there will be a slight price increase in our QVI Fees.
We thank you for your understanding on this legal requirement. If you have any further enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact our Customer Experience Ambassadors +603 7949 8288 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Does QVI Club have 5-star properties?
Why doesn’t QVI Club have hotels in places like London, New York, Madrid or Paris?
Why can’t I insist on a specific resort at a specific travel date?
With Home Resorts and Limited Collection resorts, QVI Club has greater control and flexibility over the inventory, so there is usually a higher chance of obtaining availability with these resorts on the dates you want.
Why do vacation clubs only receive an allocation of a percentage of rooms from hotels and resorts, and not the full inventory of rooms?
Why are we sometimes told there is no availability, but the hotel’s website shows there is?
In XchangeWorld, what is meant by a mixed-use property?
Why is a room booked through QVI Club sometimes more expensive than the published rates for the same room on the hotel’s website?
Are meals and transfers included in our memberships and packages?
Your booking guideline recommends booking at least 45 days in advance. Will that guarantee me availability at my choice of resort?
Why do I have to pay a Usage Fee?

USAGE & FEES
What is the Usage Fee?
To bank in a week is to pay for the week in the year of entitlement, if you do not wish to use it in the same year, but wish to save it for future use. Sometimes the term ‘to deposit a week’ is used – it means the same thing.
When do I pay my Usage Fee? How can I carry over my holiday week?
The extension of the validity of the banked in week starts from the date of purchase of the membership, and not from the date when the week is banked in. The activation date is the date from which you can start using your week to make a holiday booking.
Example: If the membership is purchased on 22 April 2011, the first year of the holiday entitlement starts from 22 April 20011, and is valid until 31 December 2011. If no Usage Fee is paid during that time, the holiday entitlement is considered unused or unbanked, and will be forfeited after 31 Dec 2011 if the Usage Fee is not paid by then.
The holiday week for 2011 is considered activated only when the Usage Fee is paid, but the validity period will be 2 years from the purchase date, and not the activation date. For example, if you purchase a membership on 22 April 2011, but only pay the Usage Fee on 12 Dec 2011, then the 2-year validity starts from 22 April 2011 and lasts till 21 April 2013.
Usage Fee is charged per week per unit per year and subject to change from time to time.

Full forfeiture of the entitlement week applies to cancellations made 7 days or less prior to the check-in date.
