The Site gives you access to the priceless world of experiences, special offers, card benefits, and relevant content.
Within the framework of the Programme, Mastercard acts merely as an intermediary of services.

Service Description and Conclusion of Contract
The presentation of the offers and services is not a binding offer of Mastercard. You will only be asked to submit an offer to Mastercard. The essential features of the services can be found in the description of the offer on the page. Furthermore, you can find additional descriptions and specifications in the offer conditions ("offer conditions") for numerous offers. Please note that in most cases the service is not provided by Mastercard, but by the third party (Dealer / Provider / Organiser). Dealers (including those acting as non-profit dealers) can offer Mastercard certain offers, experiences, and/or other benefits for the purchases of goods and services (“Offers”) that are available on the Site or directly by the dealer. You can also find exact contact information about the respective dealer, provider, or organiser in the respective offer conditions. We inform that, by concluding a contract between you and the respective dealer, provider, or organiser, their respective terms and conditions are the content of that contract. You can also find the relevant terms and conditions of the dealer in the respective offer conditions.
The service of Mastercard is merely limited to the mediation of the services offered. The steps to conclude a contract are as follows:
The contract for the respective service is concluded between you and the respective dealer, provider, or organiser on the basis of their terms and conditions. The implementation of the Programme as such is not Mastercard’s obligation of performance. Mastercard is therefore only an intermediary between you and the respective dealer, provider, or organiser. Mastercard therefore has no influence on the conditions for the use and the implementation of the Programme. Mastercard shall not be liable for any loss or damage you incur as a result of your (business) relationship with a dealer in relation to such offers. Mastercard does not recommend any dealer accessible through the Site or their offers that are available on the Site itself or on the website of a dealer, nor does Mastercard provide any warranty for these dealers or their offers. Before concluding a contract, please take note of the respective terms and conditions of the offer concerned.
Termination by Mastercard
Mastercard may restrict your access to the Site or your participation in the Program for objective reasons.
Cancellation / Withdrawal
In order to exercise this right of withdrawal, you must send to Mastercard a clear statement that declares the withdrawal from the present contract in. The declaration can be sent:
by post: Mastercard Europe SA Representative Office Austria
Wipplingerstrasse, 30/DG, 1010 Vienna,
by email: email@example.com
For this, you can also use the following standard withdrawal form:
I hereby withdraw from my contract on mediation services for the provision of the Programme , booked on , with the invoice number on Mastercard’s website Priceless Cities.
To comply with the cancelation period, it is sufficient that the declaration of withdrawal is sent before the expiry of the cancelation period.
Following the withdrawal, all payments made in this connection will be refunded. If you already received Mastercard’s benefits and the return is possible, these benefits are to be returned to Mastercard step by step. Mastercard’s obligations of return are to be fulfilled within 14 days from the date, on which the withdrawal declaration was received by Mastercard. The same applies to your obligations to return.
Your right to withdraw from the contract is (partially) excluded in the following cases:
- In cases where you have expressly requested that the programme will be started within the 14-day cancelation period. This is particularly the case if you book a scheduled time for the programme, which is still within the 14-day cancellation period. In such a case, the right of withdrawal exists only to the extent that the programme’s service has not yet been rendered.
- In cases where services are rendered in the areas of accommodation for purposes other than housing, transport of goods, rental of motor vehicles, and the supply of food, drinks, and services associated with leisure activities, provided that the implementation of the contract was already scheduled for a certain time or period. This applies in particular to tickets for various events and all other programmes, which cannot be postponed after the scheduled time within the framework of the concluded contract.
Withdrawal of Mastercard
Until you have redeemed the programme you have booked, Mastercard is entitled to withdraw from a contract concluded with you, in particular
- if for economic reasons Mastercard cannot reasonably be expected to arrange the program.
- if, for economic reasons, the organiser cannot reasonably be expected to carry out the programme (e.g. if a lower limit for the number of participants is not reached)
- if the organizer's cooperation with Mastercard has been terminated.
- if the implementation of the program became impossible due to legal changes.
Should Mastercard make use of this right, you will of course be refunded the value of the booked program immediately or, if requested, given the opportunity to book an alternative program. (insert LINK)
Some programmes provided via Mastercard are deemed to be considered as travel packages (more than two different types of travel services) within the meaning of article 2 (2) of the Package Travel Act (PRG) and are subject to the following additional provisions:
- Before the travel package is booked, Mastercard will provide you with the legally required information sheet (Part A, B or C) via a link and will inform you about the essential characteristics (destination, means of transport, payment modalities etc.) of the travel service. Specific information on the individual programmes can be found in the respective offer conditions.
- You can withdraw from the package travel contract at any time against payment of appropriate compensation without specifying any reason before the package travel begins. You can find compensation packages that are contractually agreed for this purpose in the relevant terms and conditions (as well as the offer conditions) of each mediated tour operator.
- To cover any costs incurred, for example, by cancellation or return transport, you have the opportunity to take out travel insurance. Mastercard does not provide such insurance. Please contact the respective tour operator or an insurance agency of your choice.
- If the minimum number of participants required for the package travel is not achieved or if there are unavoidable and exceptional circumstances that significantly affect the implementation of the package travel, the mediated tour operator can withdraw from the package travel contract concluded with you by complying with legal requirements.
Payment for the programs you have booked will be made by the Mastercard credit card you specified during registration.
Prices / costs
All prices are provided on the Site under the offer concerned. All prices are deemed to be exclusive of VAT, unless otherwise expressly stated. These prices do include any shipping costs. If shipment is made by Mastercard, this shipment will be at your expense, the amount of the costs will be announced in advance. In this regard, we charge actual costs incurred, including an appropriate administrative fee.
Payment, delivery, and service conditions
You can find the participation conditions above (See “the Site”). Payments are only possible via the Site by using your Mastercard card. You can find further details regarding the terms of payment, delivery, and participation conditions in the respective offer conditions and information on the Site. In the case of default of payment, Mastercard is entitled, at our discretion, to claim the damage actually incurred or legal default interest. In this regard, you are obliged to reimburse dunning and collection charges incurred, as far as they are required for the adequate assertion of legal rights. The assertion of further rights and claims remains unaffected.
As the owner of the credit card on which the booking is based, you are entitled to receive the booked service. A transfer to third parties is not possible.
As a rule, you can book programs at a certain point in time so that the service can only be obtained on this key date. The date specified in the booking is therefore decisive for the redemption of the service. However, if you have booked an indefinite programme, you may redeem it within 36 months of the date of order confirmation. Booked programs cannot be replaced in cash.
