General Release, Waiver of Liability, Hold Harmless Agreement, and Release of Liability & Assumption of All Risks

By making a booking with Adventurati, Inc., The Trip Tribe, and third parties (together hereafter “Adventurati”), you accept on behalf of yourself and all those named on the booking, including minors and persons under a disability to be bound by these Terms and Conditions and the General Release, Waiver of Liability, Hold Harmless Agreement, Release of Liability, and Assumption of All Risks. The person making the booking accepts all risk for each person named in the booking.

  1. I understand that Adventurati, Inc., The Trip Tribe, and third parties (together hereafter "Adventurati") sponsor or offer a variety of activities, including sailing, skiing, adventure travel, cultural activities, fitness, yoga, and exercise classes, water sports and other sports, various types of travel and social events in the United States and around the world. I am fully aware that many of Adventurati's activities are inherently dangerous activities, which involve the risk of serious injury or even death. These inherent risks may be unforeseen. I agree that by participating in any Adventurati-related activity, I am responsible for my own safety and welfare and agree that I knowingly and voluntarily assume the full risks involved in any such activity.

    Adventurati operates this program solely as an independent contractor. The services described in Adventurati documents, including without limitation transportation, lodging, and sight-seeing, are provided by the carriers, hoteliers and other suppliers that are independent contractors and not agents for, nor employees, partners or joint ventures of Adventurati. Adventurati is not responsible for any loss of, or damage to property, or death, or injury resulting from any act or omission of any supplier providing any tour service or any other person or entity, or caused by strike, war, weather, quarantine, sickness, government restriction or regulation, or any other cause beyond its reasonable control. You, the passenger, waive any rights which you may have against Adventurati in connection with the foregoing. Under no circumstance is Adventurati to be construed as a carrier under contract for safe carriage of the passenger or his or her baggage and belongings. Adventurati shall be responsible to the client for supplying the services and accommodations offered on the client's invoice / itinerary except to the extent such services and accommodations cannot be supplied due to causes beyond the control of Adventurati. This duty arises out of contract between the client and Adventurati and there are no other implied or expressed duties outside of said contract.

  2. I do hereby affirm and acknowledge that I have been fully informed of the inherent hazards and risks associated with all Adventurati activities, including boating activities, transportation of equipment related to the activities, and traveling to and from activity sites of which I am about to engage in. Inherent hazards and risks include but are not limited to:

    • Possible equipment failure and/or malfunction of my own or others' equipment.
    • Running into objects, persons or animals including but not limited to fallen water skiers, jet-skis, barely submerged logs and stumps and other hazards that are not visible.
    • Carbon monoxide exposure and/or poisoning from your vessel or others' vessels.
    • My own negligence and/or the negligence of others, including employees, agents, independent contractors or representatives of Adventurati, including but not limited to operator error.
    • Hazards related to boating which include but are not limited to: collision, capsizing, sinking, or other hazards that may result in wetness, injury, exposure to elements, hypothermia, impact of the body upon the water, upon rocks, injection of water into my body orifices, marine life forms, and/or drowning.
    • Cold weather and heat related injuries and illness including but not limited to frostnip, frost bite, heat exhaustion, heat stroke, sunburn, hypothermia and dehydration.
    • Exposure to outdoor elements, including but not limited to inclement weather, thunder and lightning, sever and or varied wind, temperature or weather conditions.
    • Attack by or encounter with insects, reptiles, and/or animals.
    • Accidents or illness occurring in remote places where there are no available medical facilities.
    • Fatigue chill, and/or dizziness, which may diminish my/our reaction time and increase the risk of accident.
    • My sense of balance, physical coordination, and ability to follow instructions.
    • Risk of injury from these activities and equipment utilized in boating and other activities is significant including the potential for permanent disability and death.
    • Boat capsizes may cause cuts, broken bones and other injuries including death.
    • Exposure to water hydraulics, hidden or obvious obstructions, and/or debris found in the water can cause drowning or other harm.
    • *I understand the description of these risks is not complete and that unknown or unanticipated risks may result in injury, illness, or death.
  3. I appreciate that I may have to exercise extra care for my own person and for others around me in the face of such hazards. I further understand that there may not be rescue or medical facilities or expertise necessary to deal with injuries and damages to which I may be exposed. I am also aware that there is a risk of failure of the operators and their staff - including third party operators - to safeguard or protect me from the risks, dangers, and hazards or the activities.

    I understand that while traveling with Adventurati, to the destination of my choice, I risk exposure to various health or life threatening dangers, to include, but are not limited to: theft, transportation accidents, natural disasters, social unrest and terrorist attacks; and that Adventurati will make reasonable effort to avoid such dangers and/or provide care, in the event I fall victim to these, or similar dangers. I also understand that in so doing Adventurati admits to no fault or liability, and therefore I release Adventurati from liability from my involvement in any of these dangerous situations. In consideration of the right to participate in a Adventurati trip, and the service arranged for me by Adventurati and its agents and representatives as introduced through this agreement, I do hereby assume all risks of bodily injury, death, emotional trauma, property damage and/or theft resulting from negligence or any other acts, however caused, and I release Adventurati and all of its agents and representatives from any and all liability, actions, causes of actions, suits, debts, demands that I may have for bodily injury, death or property damage, loss of income, and claims of every sort and nature whatsoever, which have or may arise out of, or in connection with my participation in an Adventurati trip or other activity.

    Medical. By booking a trip with Adventurati, you certify that you do not have any physical or other condition or disability that would create a hazard for yourself or other passengers. It is essential that any participant with a medical condition requiring regular treatment notify Adventurati and the trip leaders in writing at the time of submission of this form. While Adventurati will make reasonable efforts to accommodate special needs we assume no responsibility for medical care. Adventurati reserves the right to refuse any client access to, or continuation on, this trip if it deems you are not fit to start or continue. Once you have been confirmed on this trip, medical circumstances will not be considered as exceptions to our cancellation policy. If you are taking medications, it is your responsibility to bring these on the trip. We recommend you bring any medication in its original, labeled container. We also strongly recommend you carry printed copies of all prescriptions, though we cannot guarantee filling medical prescriptions while overseas. If you need prescription eye glasses for any purpose, we recommend you bring at least one extra pair of eye glasses on this trip.

  4. To the fullest extent allowed by law, I agree that I will not institute any lawsuit or other legal action against Adventurati, its officers, directors, delegates, employees, staff, instructors, agents, representatives, servants, or assigns and all organizations and individuals assisting in promoting, conducting or otherwise affiliated with the activity as a result of my participation in or injury from any Adventurati-related, Adventurati organized, Adventurati-advertised, Adventurati-sponsored or Adventurati-subsidized activity.

  8. I hereby agree to release and discharge Adventurati, its heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assigns from any and all actions, causes of action, suits, charges and obligations, debts, dues, sums of money, accounts, reckonings, bonds, bills, specialties, covenants, contracts, controversies, agreements, promises, variances, trespasses, damages, judgments, extents, executions, claims, and demands whatsoever, in law, admiralty or equity, which against Adventurati, I or my heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assigns ever had, now have or hereafter can, shall or may have for, upon, or by reason of any matter, cause or thing whatsoever from the beginning of time to the date of this General Release.

  9. This release shall be binding to the fullest extent permitted by law. If any provision of this release is found to be unenforceable, the remaining terms shall be enforceable. I have read this release of liability and assumption of risk agreement, and I fully understand its terms, and understand that I have given up legal rights by signing it, and I sign it freely and voluntarily without inducement. In signing this release, I acknowledge and represent that I have read the foregoing General Release, Waiver of Liability and Hold Harmless Agreement, understand it and sign it voluntarily as my own free act and deed. This is the entire agreement. No oral representations, statements, or inducements apart from the foregoing written agreement have been made. I am at least eighteen years of age and fully competent; and I execute this Release for full, adequate, and complete consideration fully intending to be bound by same.

I have carefully read this entire Release of Liability and Assumption of All Risks, and I have read the complete Terms and Agreements, including notification of cancellation penalties. I fully understand all contents of this document and agree to same.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

RESERVATIONS: RESERVATIONS: A deposit is required to hold a reservation for an Adventurati experience. Deposit amounts vary depending on the experience. Receipt of your initial deposit confirms that you are in agreement with our Terms and Conditions. Final payment is due no later than 3 months prior to departure. For reservations made within 105 days of the departure date, full payment is required when the reservation is accepted. If your final payment is not received by the date it was due, we reserve the right to consider this inaction a cancellation. Cancellation penalties will apply.

CANCELLATION PENALTIES AND REFUNDS: Regardless of reason, cancellations result in costly charges from travel and lodging providers. If you choose to cancel, you will incur these cancellation penalties, which vary depending on the experience. All cancellation requests must be received in writing and the effective date of the cancellation will be the day your cancellation notice is received by mail or email. Cancellation charges are based upon how long before your experience start date the cancellation notification is received. The charges are calculated at the applicable percentage of the total experience price.

Your booking is not eligible for a refund unless you meet the following criteria: (a) Your trip is over 180 days away OR (b) You booked within the last 30 days and your trip is still over 90 days from the start date.

Adventurati requires that all guests purchase travel medical and cancellation insurance coverage to protect themselves against circumstances that require a change in travel plans.

For assistance with travel insurance, contact our partner World Nomads.

NOTE: Some trips may require you to purchase non-refundable airline tickets at the time of booking, in addition to or as part of the required trip deposit. In such cases, once airline tickets are issued they are subject to the carrier’s refund policy; non-refundable airline ticket fees (which may be up to 100% of the ticket value) will be added to the cancellation penalties.

We will make every effort to operate all experiences as advertised. We reserve the right to alter or cancel the experience or make reasonable substitutions as deemed necessary. Any savings resulting from these changes will be refunded to you, while added expenses will be covered by us. In the event of cancellation, our liability, if any, shall be limited to and liquidated by a refund or credit to each prospective participant. If an experience is canceled prior to the start date, we will provide you with a refund of your payment; except if cancellation is due to a significant event that makes it infeasible to operate the experience as planned (including, but not limited to, natural or manmade disasters), in which case we will provide you with a credit toward a future Adventurati experience that is the equivalent value of the credit that Adventurati receives from our travel providers. If we cancel the experience in progress, you will receive a prorated refund based on the number of days not completed. We will not be responsible for any refund for nonrefundable airline tickets or for any airline tickets purchased by the passenger directly from an airline or travel agent. While not anticipated, prices on our website may be modified due to unexpected significant events not forecast at the time of publication.

TRIP PRICE INCLUSIONS AND EXCLUSIONS: Our website lists the price and inclusions for each individual itinerary. Both prices and inclusions are subject to reasonable change. If an experience price should increase, you may cancel your trip without penalty if we are notified in writing of your intent to cancel within seven (7) days of notice. All non-refundable charges such as airline tickets, fuel surcharges, and other fees are exempt from this policy. PRICE DOES NOT INCLUDE: Expenses not included in the itinerary, airport taxes, government fees, or other items such as incidentals, passport/visa fees, or items of a personal nature.

ITINERARY VARIATIONS: We will make every effort to operate all experiences as advertised. Situations may arise, voluntarily or involuntarily, that require changes or exceptions that include but are not limited to the airport of departure, airlines, the itinerary, changes caused by weather conditions, hotels or ports of call. On these occasions, we reserve the right to make such modifications and substitutions as deemed necessary.

BOOKING: You are responsible to ensure that your full, official name is provided to us at the time of booking, exactly as it appears on your valid passport. If the trip includes airfare, it can cost up to $200 or more per person for a name change or other ticket adjustments, plus any fare increase if applicable, due to re-ticketing. The airline may deny boarding if your airline ticket does not match your passport.
