These terms and conditions (collectively, hereinafter referred to as the "Terms") govern your access to and use of the website, www.redbus.sg and mobile applications that link to or reference these Terms ("Website"). Further, the Website is operated by IBIBO Group Pte Limited ("Redbus").
The 'Seller' referred to in the entire Terms below is the local bus operator who is registered with the Website and whose inventory is listed on the Website.
Please read these Terms carefully before using Website, which is an online marketplace. Further, for the purpose of clarity, it is hereby stated that Website is not engaged in providing any services by itself but is a platform, which merely connects the business to customers.

All rights and liabilities of the User and/or Website with respect to use of Website and availing bus ticket booking/hotel reservation facility ("Facility") provided by Website shall be restricted to the scope of these Terms.
In addition to these Terms, any other ‘terms of service’ of the application-programming interface (“API”) with which Redbus may tie-up would form an integral part of these Terms (hereinafter referred to as the “API Terms”). However, in the event of a conflict between such API Terms and these Terms, these Terms shall prevail.
Both User and Website are individually referred as 'Party' and collective referred to as 'Parties'.

- Our Website:
Redbus wishes to clarify that it is only a online marketplace which merely connects the business to customers. In light of the foregoing, Redbus wishes to clarify the following:
- The Website is a marketplace, which lists the inventory of local operators who are registered with the Website, but does not own the services per se. Hence, the role of the Website is to connect the You and ‘seller’. Further, the Website provides customer support in the event of complaints against bus operators, cancellation of bus ticket bookings, refunds and charge backs (responsibilities further mentioned in Clause 9, point 6).
- In light of the foregoing, the Website shall assist you with any concerns and/or claims you may have in relation to the product being sold/services being offered on the Website in accordance with the applicable laws, and connect you with ‘seller’. However, you may always choose to pursue any such action as you may deem necessary against ‘seller’/the Website. In case of any deficiency of products/services, You agree to pursue any such action arising from such deficiency of products/services against ‘seller’ and not the Website.
- You further agree and acknowledge that the Website cannot guarantee to or control in any manner any transactions on the Website. Accordingly, the contract of sale of products/services on the Website shall be a strictly bipartite contract between you and ‘seller’ listed on the Website. Any related issue, you can direct contact our customer support accordingly.
- You further agree and acknowledge that all the ‘discounts/coupons (if any)’ on the Website/prices at which the products are being sold by the ‘seller’ on the Website is merely an “invitation to an offer” in accordance with the applicable laws and shall not be construed to be an “offer” in accordance with the applicable laws. Hence, in light of the foregoing, when you agree to purchase any product of the ‘seller’ listed on the Website, that would be termed as a ‘valid offer’ under the applicable laws and after doing so it is upon the ‘seller’ to accept the said ‘valid offer’ or reject the ‘valid offer’. In this regard, note that if the ‘seller’ accepts the said ‘valid offer’, only then would it tantamount to be a ‘valid contract’ as per the applicable laws.
