Surf Air Membership Agreement
Effective Date: May 15, 2018
By subscribing to a Surf Air (“Surf”) membership (the “Membership”), the person or entity subscribing to the Membership (hereafter the “Member“) agrees to the terms and conditions set forth herein (this “Membership Agreement”). The “Membership Term” commences on the date that a Member is permitted to become a Member (“Service Commencement Date”) and continues until cancelled or terminated as provided in this Membership Agreement. The terms of this Membership Agreement shall also apply to Memberships purchased for Rise, which is a wholly-owned affiliate of Surf. References to Surf in this Membership Agreement shall also be deemed to refer to Rise.
Membership with, and travel arranged by, Surf and any other product or service provided by Surf to its Members are subject to the terms and conditions contained in (a) this Membership Agreement; (b) the contract of carriage and other applicable terms and conditions (the “Contract of Carriage”) for an Operator (as defined below) of the applicable flight, which Contract of Carriage shall be linked to Surf’s website; (c) the terms set forth in the applicable Member’s Membership application (the “Application“) or other written correspondence regarding the pricing and terms of Membership (“Membership Plan Terms”); and (d) such additional policies, rules, terms and conditions as are presented on Surf’s website or mobile device application and any ticket or ticket-less travel authorization (all of the foregoing and collectively, the “Agreement“). No agent, servant or representative of Surf has authority to change or waive any provision of the Agreement unless authorized in writing by an authorized corporate officer of Surf. Unless otherwise prohibited by law, the Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between Surf and its Members and permitted guests.
The Membership Program (“Program”). Surf is a member-based travel arrangement service, and arranges transportation for its Members. Surf only arranges air transportation with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certificated air carriers. Surf is not an operator of aircraft or an air carrier, nor does it hold out, offer, sell or provide air transportation. Surf procures scheduled air transportation and other services, such as ground transportation, aircraft catering, airport parking, and other concierge-type services for its Members. Surf reserves the right to change, suspend or terminate any of the services or benefits it offers at any time, including, without limitation, changes, suspension or termination of any routes, types of aircraft used and/or operators that perform flights, and changes to (or imposition of new) fees or other charges for services or benefits. Surf may from time to time offer new routes and other services or benefits, all of which are subject to change, suspension or termination at any time and also are subject to additional fees or charges. Grandfathered membership programs (and the associated fee rates), if any, are subject to change per the terms of the Agreement and do not include access to new services or benefits that may be offered after the initial date of purchase of membership.
At its sole discretion, Surf may offer certain Members trial or other promotional Memberships with different features, which are subject to the terms of this Agreement, except as otherwise stated in the promotional offer. Promotional Membership is valid only for the period specified in the promotional offer. If no period is specified, Surf may terminate promotional Memberships at any time in its sole discretion.
As one of the benefits of the Program, Surf agrees to arrange transportation services for Member to be provided by third party aircraft operators holding an Air Carrier Certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration (each, an “Operator”) authorizing them to furnish air transportation services pursuant to Part 135 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 C.F.R. Part 135 (“FAR Part 135”)). Member understands that Surf is not an aircraft operator and arranges air travel and other services solely as a manager of the Program. For clarification purposes, “Private Aircraft Charter”, “Aircraft Charter”, “Private Charter”, and “Charter” refers to accessing, using, booking, arranging, or chartering an aircraft. Except when it is expressly stated that a flight is operated pursuant to a Public Charter Program, all travel arrangements are made pursuant to FAR Part 135 under the terms, restrictions and limitations reflected in this Membership Agreement.
Surf may provide access to its software including applications, websites, electronic social/commerce, marketplaces, and integrated communication tools, which form part of the Program, and are designed to enhance the user-experience, communications, service optimization, functionality and logistics of the Program (“Software”). Members can access and utilize such Program and Software only as stipulated and limited under the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
All flights arranged under this Agreement are operated by an Operator, who shall have exclusive direction, control and authority over initiating, conducting or terminating flights (“Operational Control”). Surf is not a FAR Part 135 air carrier and does not provide air carrier services. An Operator performing the flight will be subject to, but not limited to: flight time and duty time restrictions and airport limitations that may preclude or limit operations to certain airports and other applicable regulations and requirements. Member understands and agrees that an Operator shall have absolute discretion in all matters relating to the operation of the aircraft, including, and without limitation: the preparation of the aircraft for flight and the flight itself, the timing of the flight, the load carried and its distribution, the decision whether or not a flight is to be performed, the route to be flown, etc. Member expressly agrees that an Operator shall have final and complete authority to cancel any flight for any reason or condition that in its sole and absolute judgment could affect the safety of flight and may take any other action that, in its opinion, is necessitated by considerations of safety. No such action of an Operator shall create or support any liability for loss, injury, damage or delay to Member.
In addition, an Operator shall have the right to refuse boarding to any person: (a) who appears to be intoxicated or under the influence of any illicit or controlled substance drug; (b) who refuses to be subject to any reasonable checks of his or her person or baggage by an Operator, or by government or airport authorities; (c) whose condition, including apparent illness or incapacity, in the sole judgment of an Operator would involve hazard or risk to himself, herself or others; (d) who fails to provide proper identification in compliance with applicable laws; or (e) who is conducting himself or herself in a manner inconsistent with, or otherwise in breach of, the terms of the Agreement. Please see the applicable Operator’s Contract of Carriage for additional terms and conditions imposed by the Operator for flights arranged under this Agreement by Surf.
Each Member, and any associated Listed Member or Guest, authorizes Surf to arrange flights to be operated an Operator. All such flights are subject to the Contract of Carriage, and each Member, Listed Member and Guest agrees that each flight taken pursuant to the Membership is expressly subject to the Contract of Carriage. Each Member, Listed Member and Guest further acknowledges and agrees that Surf will not itself operate any flights arranged and booked through Surf.
(II) Membership Agreement Terms and Conditions
(A) Membership Benefits and Responsibilities
(1) Membership Benefits –
Membership benefits are determined by the Membership plan you select as specified in the Application (“Membership Plan”) and as further set forth in the Membership Plan Terms. You acknowledge receipt of your Membership Plan Terms. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for your Membership Plan Terms or any inquiries related thereto. As applicable, an individual listed for Membership in the Application or designated by a Member thereafter is referred to in this Membership Agreement as a “Listed Member” and is entitled to the same flight benefits for that Membership Plan. The foregoing includes Listed Members who are specified as authorized users under a corporate or group Membership Plan. Listed Members may also be referred to herein in as a Member or Members.
Surf Memberships are non-transferable. Membership privileges are solely available to Members and cannot be lent, shared, transferred, assigned, leased or sold to or used by any third party, except as specified in this Membership Agreement. While Members can invite guests to join them on flights they arrange, each and every person traveling within the Surf system must be a Member or a Member-invited Guest. Surf does not hold out to the public, and Members cannot lend their account to someone else to book flights or access the Program. Surf has the right to add, modify, or eliminate any Membership benefits, including flights, destinations, and routes made available from Surf’s third party Operators and other related benefits or services at any time with or without notice, in its reasonable business discretion. Surf is not liable for any Membership refunds or costs incurred by a Listed Member or Member resulting from any such modification or cancellation.
(2) Adding and Removing Listed Members – For certain Membership Plans, during the Membership Term, Surf may allow a Member to add additional Listed Members to the Membership as set forth in the Application and Membership Plan Terms. See Membership Plan Terms for details —such additions may not be applicable to all Membership Plans. Please contact email@example.com for your Membership Plan Terms. Removal of an individual as a Listed Member requires thirty (30) days advance written notice to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to any changes taking effect.
(3) Upgrades and Downgrades – For certain Membership Plans, during the Membership Term Surf may allow a Member to upgrade or downgrade their Membership Plan by changing their Reservation tier level as set forth in the Membership Plan Terms. Or, a Member may purchase or be awarded additional Member benefits or participate in other promotional programs offered by Surf from time to time, all of which shall be considered part of Member’s Membership Plan at the time of purchase or award. Please see Membership Plan Terms for details—upgrades and downgrades may not be applicable to all Membership Plans. Please contact email@example.com for your Membership Plan Terms. All downgrades require thirty (30) days advance written notice to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to any changes taking effect.
(4) Reservations/Flight Passes – A “Reservation” or “Flight Pass” is a paperless ticket used to book each flight made available to Surf Members by an Operator. Please see Membership Plan Terms for details—Reservations/Flight Passes may not be applicable to all Membership Plans. Please contact email@example.com for your Membership Plan Terms. The Reservation or Flight Pass of any Member refused passage or removed enroute under the provisions the Contract of Carriage may be returned to Member’s Surf account at Surf’s sole discretion. Such a refund shall be the sole recourse of any Member refused passage or removed enroute.
(5) Cancellations and Changes – Members and Listed Members are permitted to change or cancel flights at any time, subject to this Agreement. For Reservation or Flight Pass cancellations on flights that are full at the time of such cancellation and if a Member or Listed Member cancels within twenty-four (24) hours of the scheduled departure time, the Member or Listed Member will lose the use of a Reservation for a 14-day period of time; provided, however, that such penalty does not apply to delayed flights, and Members and Listed Members retain the ability to change to an available earlier or later departure on the same day, on the same route without penalty.
An Operator will attempt to transport passengers and their baggage promptly and as scheduled. Flight schedules, however, are subject to change without notice and the schedules and Reservations/Flight Passes are not guaranteed. Surf will use its reasonable best efforts to promptly notify all affected passengers, using the contact information provided by each passenger, of planned or unplanned schedule changes and cancellations including, but not limited to, those due to weather. At times, without prior notice to passengers, an Operator may need to substitute other aircraft or air carriers and may change, add, or omit intermediate or connecting stops. Surf Air cannot guarantee that passengers will make connections to other Operator flights, or those of other air carriers. In the event that a flight is cancelled by Surf or an Operator due to circumstances entirely within the control of Surf or an Operator (i.e., insufficient pilot staffing or maintenance), then Surf shall reimburse or credit the Member for documented costs for a commercial flight or other substitute means of transportation taken by the Member due to the cancelled Surf Air flight, or if the Member decides to stay overnight and take a flight the next day, documented costs for a hotel stay (all of the foregoing subject to the reimbursement limitations set forth in the following sentence). Documented costs eligible for reimbursement under the preceding sentence shall be limited as follows: up to $300 for travel between SF Bay Area and LA area; up to $400 for travel between San Diego and SF Bay Area; up to $500 for travel between Santa Barbara and SF Bay Area; and up to $400 for one night hotel stay, if the Member opts to stay overnight versus taking alternate travel. For the avoidance of doubt, a Member cannot opt for both alternative travel and an overnight hotel stay.
(6) Check In and “No Shows” – Members and Listed Members must check in with the appropriate Surf personnel located at the departure airport at least fifteen (15) minutes prior to the scheduled departure time or the passenger will be considered a “No Show.” If a Member or Listed Member is a No Show, they will be unable to board the scheduled flight and if a Member or Listed Member is a No Show on a flight that is full at the time of such No Show, they may also lose the use of one Reservation for a 14-day period of time including and following the day of the No Show flight; provided, however, that Members and Listed Members retain the ability to change to an available earlier or later departure on the same day, on the same route without penalty. Surf will refuse to honor any Reservation or Flight Pass when such action is reasonably deemed to be necessary to comply with applicable governmental regulations or requests.
(7) Responsibility for Listed Members and Guests – Members will ensure that their Listed Members (as applicable) and/or any guests that may accompany a Member through the use of a Guest Flight (as defined below) (“Guest(s)”) comply with the Member’s obligations under the Agreement. Members will be responsible for any charges incurred by Listed Members and Guests, including Third Party Fees, as defined below. Any Guest Flights purchased by a Member may also be used for travel by that Member or any of its Listed Members. Members agree to reimburse Surf for any and all reasonable costs and expenses incurred as a result of damage to the aircraft interior and/or exterior or any terminal or FBO locations which are caused by carelessness or neglect by Members, Listed Members or their Guests. If a Member is purchasing a Guest Flight for an unaccompanied minor, the Member or a guardian of the unaccompanied minor is responsible for complying with all check-in and boarding procedures for a flight to ensure that the unaccompanied minor is placed on the correct aircraft.
(8) Identification and Travel Documentation – In accordance with the United States Transportation Security Administration (“TSA”) regulations and additional government regulations Members and Guests are required to comply with all TSA regulations, and will be required to present valid identification prior to departure for all flights. An Operator has the right to refuse boarding to any person without the required documentation or as a result of non-compliance with TSA or other government regulations without recourse or further obligation on behalf of an Operator or Surf.
(9) Conduct – Surf and/or Operator each reserve the right to refuse services to any Member or Guest in their sole discretion, and for any reason. If the conduct of a Member or Guest endangers the aircraft or any passenger or property while on board, or a Member or Guest obstructs or hinders the crew in the performance of their duties, or fails to comply with any instruction of the crew, including but not limited to, those with respect to weapons or objects that can inflict harm to persons or property, smoking in any form, drugs, alcohol, or use of any threatening, abusive or insulting words towards the crew or any behavior which causes discomfort, inconvenience, damage or injury to the crew or other passengers on the flight, Surf or Operator may take such measures as deemed necessary to prevent continuation of such conduct including restraint. Members or Guests may be disembarked and refused onward carriage at any point and may be prosecuted for offenses committed on board the aircraft. In addition, while waiting for travel or checking-in for flights at FBO or other airport facilities, Members and Guests are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that is respectful of Surf, Operator or on-ground staff, as well as other Members and Guests. If the conduct of a Member or Guest is in any way abusive, inappropriate, a violation of facility policies or the law, or threatens the safety of any person or property, Surf may take such measures as deemed necessary to prevent continuation of such conduct, including refusal of service or contacting law enforcement. If any Member of Guest is not acting in conformance with the proper rules of conduct or any community guidelines or other policies published by Surf from time-to-time, then Membership privileges may be revoked permanently in Surf’s sole discretion, without refund.
(10) Member Policies – Members shall at all times comply with all Surf terms, conditions, community guidelines and policies, such as procedures for flight Reservations/Flight Passes, wait lists, Guest Flights, baggage, and flight cancellation policies and penalties as well as the Contract of Carriage. Members agree that Surf may, in its discretion, change these terms, conditions, policies, and procedures at any time.
(11) Compliance with Laws and Regulations – Travel by Members and Guests shall at all times be subject to applicable laws and regulations, including regulations and guidelines established by the Department of Transportation (DOT), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Please note that Operator may have limitations regarding carry-on or checked luggage that are more restrictive that commercial airlines due to the nature of the cargo hold of the aircraft used for flights. For instance, transportation of firearms or weapons may not be permitted under applicable regulations and guidelines. If you have any questions regarding applicable restrictions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
(B) Guest Flights
(1) Guest Flight Benefits – Surf offers guest flights available for purchase by Members subject to the terms of the Agreement. A “Guest Flight” allows an individual, other than a Member or Listed Member, to travel under the applicable Member’s Membership on a limited basis. Any such Guest Flights are subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, including the Contract of Carriage, and any other limitations or regulations published by Surf in conjunction with and applicable to Guest Flights. Surf reserves the right to refuse service to any Guest at any time, in its sole discretion.
(2) Guest Flight Restrictions – Any purchased Guest Flights are non-refundable and expire upon termination of the applicable Member’s Membership Term if unused by such time without right to any refund. Guest Flights may be subject to additional restrictions set by Surf at the time of purchase and may not be used for travel by any Member or Listed Member. Guests are required to pass a background check before using a Guest Flight. A background check may take up to five (5) business days to process. All Guest Flights are subject to the same terms and conditions for Members, including, but not limited to, the standard cancellation and penalty policies. Members will incur the standard penalty for late cancellation (as further set forth below) if a Member’s Guest cancels within the penalty period and the Guest Flight will become invalid and unable to be reused.
(3) Surf Policies – Guests shall at all times comply with all Surf terms, conditions, and policies in effect, such as procedures for flight Reservations/Flight Passes, wait lists, baggage, and flight cancellation policies and penalties, as well as the Contract of Carriage. The Guest Flight of any Guest refused passage or removed enroute under the provisions of the Contract of Carriage may be returned or refunded at Surf’s sole discretion. Such a return or refund shall be the sole recourse of any Guest refused passage or removed enroute. If a Guest is a No Show, they will be unable to board the scheduled flight and the Guest Flight used for the No Show will be forfeited. Surf and the Operator will refuse to honor any Reservation or Flight Pass when such action is reasonably deemed to be necessary to comply with applicable governmental regulations or requests.
(1) Presales – Presales may be made by persons interested in a Membership by paying a deposit (“Deposit”) or purchasing a Membership in advance (“Advance Purchase”) and delaying the Service Commencement Date to a date set forth in the Application. Payment of a Deposit or Advance Purchase amount may also be referred to herein as a “Presale”. A Presale guarantees the Membership price offered on the date that the Deposit or Advance Purchase amount is paid so long as the Membership is activated within the timeframe established by Surf at the time the Presale occurs, subject to the restrictions set forth in this Agreement or any terms of the Application.
Presales require the following information: Membership type, pricing series, desired city or route, and payment of a refundable Deposit or Advance Purchase amount. A Presale guarantees a Membership if the desired city or route becomes available to Surf Members regardless of availability of Memberships on the date of the Presale; provided that, if the city or route is not made available within one (1) year of the date the Presale has been made and a launch date has not been announced by Surf, Surf may at any time after such one (1) year period and in its sole discretion: (1) refund the Deposit or Advance Purchase amount and cancel the Presale; or (2) extend the validity of the Presale for an additional period of time determined by Surf and notified to the prospective Member. The Deposit or Advance Purchase amount is also refundable to the prospective Member at any time before the public launch of the desired city or route by contacting email@example.com.
The Service Commencement Date for prospective Members that make an Advance Purchase will automatically be the date that the desired city or route set forth on the Application is available. For Presales that are made through the payment of a Deposit rather than an Advance Purchase, the Service Commencement Date must be within ninety (90) days from the date that the desired city or route becomes available to book by Surf Members, and the prospective Member shall notify Surf of the desired Service Commencement Date within that time period. Once a Service Commencement Date is set, the Deposit is automatically applied toward the Initiation fee. If the prospective Member does not activate the Membership within the ninety (90) day period, Surf may in its sole discretion: (1) refund the Deposit and cancel the Presale; or (2) extend the validity of the Presale for an additional period of time determined by Surf and notified to the prospective Member.
Commencing on the Service Commencement Date, all other terms and conditions of this Agreement shall apply to Memberships purchased as Presales, including any terms applicable to changes in Membership Fees.
(2) Cancellation of Presales – In addition to any rights of cancellation set forth in this Agreement, Surf reserves the right, based on reasonable business needs or conditions, to cancel Presales, and in such event will refund any prepaid Fees, Deposits or Advance Purchase amounts. Presales are not a guarantee that Surf will offer certain cities or routes as part of its Membership, and Surf reserves all rights in that regard.
(D) Other Third Party Products and Services
(1) Other Third Party Benefits – In addition to flights operated an Operator, Surf may arrange other benefits provided by a third party (“Other Third Parties”) to Members. Other Third Parties include, but are not limited to: airport facilities, courtesy car, car rental agencies, ground/air/water transportation providers (i.e., taxi, helicopter, ferry services), shipping or transportation services, caterers, and parking services. Surf assumes no liability for, and makes no guarantees or warranties regarding, these Other Third Parties and benefits and such benefits may change or end during the Membership Term.
(2) Other Third Party Fees – Surf may occasionally promote or offer for sale to Members or Listed Members goods or services provided by an Other Third Party. All fees for Other Third Party products or services purchased by a Member or a Listed Member (“Other Third Party Fees“) are the responsibility of the Member or Listed Member respectively. For the avoidance of doubts, no fees will be payable by Members or Listed Members to an Operator in connection with flights operated by an Operator for the benefit of Members or Listed Members, and any fees payable to an Operator in connection with such flights shall be the sole responsibility of Surf.
(3) Third Party Policies and Liability – Member and Listed Members are responsible for verifying and abiding by all Other Third Party terms and conditions, rules and policies, and use of Other Third Party services shall be deemed acceptance of any such terms, conditions, rules or policies. Other Third Parties are neither agents nor employees of Surf or its affiliates. Members, Listed Members and Guests agree that Surf and its affiliates are not liable for the acts, errors, omissions, representations, warranties, breaches, or negligence of any Other Third Party or for any personal injuries, death, property damage, or other damages or expenses resulting therefrom, including, but not limited to, all liability for damage to a Member’s, Listed Member’s or Guest’s vehicle while transported to or parked in any parking area or otherwise in the care of any Other Third Party.
(4) Parking and Ground/Air/Water Transportation – Surf does not assume responsibility for the parking of vehicles or the ground, air or water transportation of any passengers or their baggage. Surf may, at its sole discretion, offer or promote parking or other transportation options in certain locations or in conjunction with certain bundled, packaged, or charter services. Passengers are responsible for charges associated with any such parking or other transportation that they chose to accept, and the terms of this Agreement for Other Third Party service shall apply to parking or other transportation utilized by a Member, Listed Member or Guest. Surf assumes no responsibility, and all passengers waive any claims against Surf, relating to or in connection with any parking or other transportation that may be offered in connection with Surf’s services.
(5) Third Party Shipping of Baggage and Personal Property – Surf or Operator cannot transport personal property unless Members, Listed Members or Guests are accompanying such property on a flight. For Members, Listed Members or Guests desiring the transportation of baggage to a location separate from the destination, Surf may refer the passenger to the services of a third party baggage shipping service for shipping to another destination. Member is solely responsible for any third party baggage shipping fees and agrees that Surf shall not be liable for the loss of or damage to such baggage transported by a third party baggage shipping service.
(E) Membership Fees and Billing/Payment
The Membership Fees are an access fee for use of the Surf Membership, and not a payment for air transportation. Membership Fees are non-refundable, except as specifically provided in the Agreement, even if Member fails to utilize the Membership Program. Surf reserves the right to change the Fees as specified in the applicable Member’s Membership Plan Terms, and will notify the Member of such change at least thirty (30) days prior to such change taking effect.
(1) Billing and Payment –
Surf will automatically bill the Member using the billing information provided by the Member to Surf for all amounts due, including the Initiation fee (“Initiation Fee”), Membership Plan fees (“Membership Fees”), and any Third Party Fees (altogether, the “Fees”). Fees are due to Surf on a schedule as set forth in the Membership Plan Terms. Membership Fees are typically due on a monthly or annual basis, depending upon the type of Membership. Applicable taxes may be invoiced separately, if deemed necessary in Surf’s sole discretion. Any payment of Fees that is not paid by its due date will accrue interest at 1.5% per month or the maximum rate permitted by applicable law, whichever is less, from the due date until paid. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for your Membership Plan Terms.
Fees are payable in US dollar denominations. Surf accepts multiple forms of payment for Fees, including major credit cards, ACH, or wire transfer. Surf may also, in its discretion, accept other legal currencies that are convertible into US dollar denominations, including cryptocurrency (i.e., bitcoin or ethereum). Surf reserves the right in its sole discretion and upon immediate notice revoke or revise methods of acceptable payment of Fees.
If Fees are paid via credit card, Member agrees to provide Surf a credit card and authorizes Surf to automatically charge the Fees to the credit card on file and on the payment schedule applicable to the Member’s account. Members shall provide new or updated credit card information promptly following expiration of the credit card on file.
If Fees are paid via ACH or wire transfer transactions, Member agrees to provide necessary authorizations to allow for payment of Fees per the applicable schedule under the Member’s Membership Plan.
If Fees are paid via cryptocurrency, the Member must maintain their own cryptocurrency wallet, and comply with any policies or rules established by Surf Air for payment by cryptocurrency. The security and privacy of Member’s cryptocurrency wallet shall be the sole responsibility of Member.
Payments processed through any of the above methods will always be subject to the terms and conditions of the respective payment processing agencies, and any violation by Member of such terms and conditions can result in cancellation of Membership. Surf Air has no responsibility for payments transmitted in error, or payments that fail to transmit due to an omission, by a Member or any third party, and Member shall remain responsible for any unpaid Fees that result from Member’s non-payment due to an error or omission by Member or any third party. Any fees, assessments or penalties payable by Member to any third party in connection with Member’s use of services by payment processing agencies and/or based on form of payment used by the Member shall be the sole responsibility of the Member, and Surf Air shall have no liability for any such fees, assessments or penalties. All transactions shall be in accordance with Surf policies set forth for such payment options. Please contact email@example.com for any such policies.
(2) Suspension of Membership – Surf reserves the right to suspend or terminate (at Surf’s option) a Membership if payment of the Fees is not received within seven (7) days of its due date (“Membership Suspension”).

(2) Non-Transferability of Membership, Rewards or Credits – Membership privileges are solely available to Member and cannot be lent, shared, transferred, leased or sold to any third party, except as specified in this Agreement or in a valid promotional offer. While Members can invite guests to join them on flights where Guest Passes are available, they cannot lend their account to someone else to book flights or access the service. Members cannot sell, transfer or receive remuneration for flight credits or other awarded or accrued benefits or credits. Member acknowledges that any reward or credit may be limited and may be subject to expiration at Surf’s sole discretion. Any breach of this section may result in Member losing privileges and membership cancellation with no further obligation to Member or recourse by Member.
(1) Accuracy of Information – Member represents that all information provided in the Application is true, accurate, current, and complete. Member further agrees that s/he will notify Surf of any substantive changes to the Member’s and Listed Members’ name, contact, payment, or other applicable information.

(4) Background Checks – Member agrees and consents to periodic background checks on the Member, Listed Members and Guests at any time during the term of this Agreement and prior to any such individual’s travel on a Surf flight. Background checks may be performed by a third party and in accordance with such third party’s policies and procedures. Member acknowledges and agrees that in so doing, Surf may require that Members, Listed Members and Guests provide additional information, including a social security number or global entry card (if no SSN), and may share all or a portion of such information with third party vendors for the purpose of conducting the background check. Surf warrants that it will maintain the confidentiality of information provided by Members, Listed Members and Guests as required by applicable law. Background checks may take up to five (5) business days to process. A passenger’s acceptance of this Agreement and delivery of the passenger’s personal information constitutes consent to Surf for performing a background check. Surf reserves the right to refuse service, at its sole discretion, to any passenger that does not comply with the request for a background check or based on the results of a background check.
(5) Baggage and Personal Property – Surf personnel may assist with the handling of baggage on behalf of Members in connection with Member check-in. Surf’s liability, if any, for loss of or damage to baggage and/or its contents, with the exception of wheelchairs, mobility aids, and assistive devices used by an individual with a disability, is limited to the proven actual value of damage or loss, but in no event shall be greater than $200.00 per passenger. Surf will be liable for personal property only for the period in which it is in the custody of Surf. Surf will assume no liability or responsibility for property carried onboard an aircraft by a passenger and retained in the custody of the passenger. Surf’s liability for loss, delay or damage to baggage is limited unless a higher value is declared in advance and additional charges are paid. Under no circumstances shall Surf be liable to any passenger for any type of special, incidental or consequential damages related to the damage, loss or delay of checked baggage.
Surf will compensate the passenger for reasonable, documented damages incurred as a result of the loss of or damage to such items up to the limit of liability as set forth above, provided that the damage was caused by Surf or occurred while the baggage was in Surf’s sole custody, and the passenger exercised reasonable effort to minimize the amount of damage as determined in Surf’ sole discretion. Actual value for reimbursement of lost or damaged property shall be calculated as the lesser of the documented original purchase price of the items, less depreciation for prior usage, or the cost to make applicable repairs. In no event will Surf be liable for damage to bags arising from ordinary wear and tear or broken or damaged handles, zippers, snaps, flaps, rivets, or wheels. While Surf will make reasonable efforts to return carry-on items that have been left onboard an aircraft, Surf assumes no liability or responsibility for the loss of or damage to carry-on items. If a wheelchair, mobility aid, or assistive device is lost, damaged, or destroyed while in Surf’s possession, Surf’s liability shall be the documented original purchase price of the wheelchair, mobility aid, or assistive device, without depreciation.
(6) Claims and Limitations of Liability – Surf does not own or operate any aircraft on which the flights are performed and does not carry any aviation insurance. Furthermore, any other partner benefits are provided and administered by the respective third parties that provide the services. Member understands and agrees that Surf is not liable for any injury, damage, loss, expense, special or consequential damages, or any other irregularity caused by the defect of any aircraft or conveyance, or the negligence of any company or person engaged in conveying the passenger, or carrying out the arrangements for Member’s trip or providing any partner benefits or by accident, delay, flight schedule, change, cancellation, sickness, weather, strikes, war, quarantine or any similar cause. It is the sole responsibility of an Operator to maintain liability insurance coverage. Members Parties (as defined below) understand and agree that Surf is not liable for any claims arising out of or in connection with the services of an Operator or any of its partners and affiliates.
On behalf of themselves and their guests, Members understand and agree that Surf’s liability shall in any case be limited to the amount paid by Member to Surf. In addition, no claim will be recognized by Surf unless written notice of such claim is presented to Surf within twenty-one (21) days after the occurrence of the event giving rise to the claim. In the case of loss of, damage to, or delay in delivery of baggage, no claim will be entertained by Surf unless preliminary written notice of such claim is presented to a Surf representative in person within one (1) day after arrival of the flight on which the loss, damage, or delay is alleged to have occurred. The preliminary notice may thereafter be amended in writing; however, such amended claim must be presented to Surf no later than ten (10) days after the occurrence of the event giving rise to the claim. Failure to provide timely written notice will not bar a claim if the claimant establishes to the satisfaction of Surf that he or she was unable, through no fault or omission of the claimant, to provide notice within the specified time. No legal action on any claim described above may be maintained against Surf unless commenced within six (6) months of Surf’s written denial of a claim, in whole or in part.
MEMBERS, ON BEHALF OF THEMSELVES AND THEIR RESPECTIVE GUESTS (COLLECTIVELY, “MEMBER PARTIES”), AGREE TO ACCEPT THE PROCEEDS OF THE INSURANCE MAINTAINED BY OPERATOR OR PARTNER AS THEIR SOLE RECOURSE AGAINST OPERATOR OR PARTNER FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, INJURY, DEATH OR PROPERTY DAMAGE) TO ANY MEMBER PARTIES; PROVIDED HOWEVER, THAT THE FOREGOING LIMITATION SHALL NOT APPLY TO IN THE EVENT OF OPERATOR’S PROVEN GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT.
IN ALL CASES AND UNDER ALL CIRCUMSTANCES, OPERATOR OR SURF SHALL NOT IN ANY EVENT BE LIABLE TO MEMBER PARTIES FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OF ANY KIND OR NATURE INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF PROFITS, USE, VALUE, REVENUE, BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES, AND THE LIKE, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES OR FOR ANY REASON, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DELAY OR FAILURE TO FURNISH ANY AIRCRAFT CAUSED OR OCCASIONED BY THE PERFORMANCE OR NON-PERFORMANCE OF ANY OBLIGATIONS OF OPERATOR (REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT OR TORT OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY), EVEN IF ANY SUCH PARTY KNEW OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITIES OF SUCH DAMAGES.
(7) Choice of Law – This Agreement will be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of California without regard to their respective conflicts of laws rules.
(8) DISPUTE RESOLUTION; MANDATORY BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION – PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS LEGAL RIGHTS THAT YOU MAY OTHERWISE HAVE AND REQUIRES INDIVIDUAL FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION OF MOST DISPUTES INSTEAD OF RESOLUTION IN COURT.
In the event of a dispute under this Agreement, where such dispute has not been settled within thirty (30) days after written notice from either party to the other of the existence of the dispute, the parties agree that, at the request of either party, such dispute will be submitted for binding arbitration in accordance with the procedures below.
Arbitration is the submission of a dispute to a neutral arbitrator, instead of a judge or jury, for a final and binding decision, known as an “award.” Arbitration provides for more limited discovery than in court, is subject to limited review by courts, and the result is confidential. Each party has an opportunity to present evidence to the arbitrator in writing or through witnesses. An arbitrator can only award the same damages and relief that a court can award under the law and must honor the terms and conditions in this Agreement.
ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, CLASS ACTION WAIVER, PUNITIVE DAMAGES WAIVER
You and Surf agree that any dispute, whether at law or equity, arising out of or relating to this Agreement or your use of Surf products or services, regardless of the date of accrual of such dispute, shall be resolved in its entirety by individual (not classwide or collective) binding arbitration, except that you or Surf may take claims to small claims court if they qualify for hearing by such a court.
You and Surf agree that any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis and that class, mass, consolidated or combined actions or arbitrations or proceedings as a private attorney general are not permitted.
You and Surf agree to waive the right to trial by jury.
This agreement to arbitrate extends to claims that you assert against other parties, including without limit claims against Surf’s affiliates and related entities.
The Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce and the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this agreement to arbitrate.
This agreement to arbitrate shall survive termination of this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, if any part of this agreement to arbitrate is deemed invalid or inapplicable, the remainder of the agreement to arbitrate shall still be considered valid and enforceable. If any part of this agreement to arbitrate is deemed invalid or inapplicable, you and Surf both waive, to the fullest extent allowed by law, any claims to recover punitive or exemplary damages and any right to pursue any claims on a class, mass, consolidated, or combined basis.
Arbitration shall be conducted by JAMS in accordance with its Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “JAMS Rules”). The JAMS Rules and instructions for how to initiate an arbitration are available from JAMS at http://www.jamsadr.com or 1-800-352-5267. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must serve at Member Care, 1408 Third Street Promenade, Suite 300, Santa Monica, CA 90401, United States.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS Rules, except that for claims of less than $1,000, you will be obligated to pay $25 and Surf will pay all other administrative costs and fees. In addition, for claims of less than $1,000, Surf will reimburse you for the $25 fee if the arbitrator rules in your favor. Reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses will be awarded only to the extent such allocation or award is available under applicable law.
Any arbitration will take place in or near the county where claimant resides and will be determined by a single arbitrator; provided, however, that upon request by either party, the arbitration shall be conducted via telephone to the extent permitted by the JAMS Rules. The arbitration may award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive relief).
Judgment on the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The proceeding will be closed except to the parties, their attorneys, representatives, witnesses, and experts, all of whom must agree or have a duty to maintain the confidentiality of the dispute and its result, except as needed to implement the ruling.
(9) Right to Change Agreement – Surf reserves the right, based on reasonable business needs and to the extent not prohibited by applicable law, to change, delete, or add to any of the terms of this Agreement, including the documents referenced and incorporated, without prior notice.
(10) Severability – If, for any reason, any portion of this Agreement is determined by a competent authority to be void or unenforceable, then (a) that portion will have no effect, (b) the balance of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect, and (c) this Agreement will be performed as though the stricken portion were replaced with a valid and enforceable provision that comes as close as possible to expressing the intention of the stricken provision.
(11) Titles – Article titles and subheadings contained in this Agreement are inserted only as a matter of convenience and for reference. Such titles in no way define, limit, or describe the scope or extent of any provision of this Agreement.
(12) Conflicts – In the event of a conflict between a Contract of Carriage, Membership Agreement, Membership Plan Terms, terms printed on any ticket, terms printed on any ticketless travel authorization, and terms specified on Surf’s website or mobile device application, precedence will be given in the order in which they are listed in the foregoing and if there is more than one version of any that are applicable, the last in time.

Surf may be required to furnish Member and guest data, such as name, date of birth, and passport information, to comply with national and international security requirements or rules of governing bodies. It may also be necessary for Surf to provide names of persons on a flight and other information to third parties providing services related to a flight including to an Operator and governmental authorities.
