ASSUMPTION OF RISKS
I _____________________________________, acknowledge that I have voluntarily applied to participate on the trip designated on this application. I am voluntarily participating on the tour or expedition with knowledge that travel to foreign countries and/or the remote areas visited by this trip involves numerous risks and dangers including, but not limited to, a risk of illness, injury or death, which may be caused by: forces of nature, civil unrest, terrorism, road conditions, injuries inflicted by animals, insects, reptiles or plants, trails, hotels, vehicles, boats or other means of conveyance which are not operated nor maintained to standards common in the United States; high altitude accident, accident or illness without access to means of rapid evacuation or the availability of medical supplies; the lack of adequacy of medical attention once provided, and negligence on the part of Luxury Ladies LLC, Kendra Last, their affiliated organizations and their employees, teachers, volunteers or other agencies. I acknowledge that the enjoyment and excitement of foreign travel/adventure travel is derived in part from the inherent risks incurred by travel and activity beyond the accepted safety of life at home or work, and that these inherent risks and the corresponding enjoyment and excitement contribute to the reason for my voluntary participation on this trip.
I HEREBY ACCEPT ANY AND ALL RISKS OF ILLNESS, INJURY, EMOTIONAL TRAUMA OR DEATH AND VERIFY THIS STATEMENT BY PLACING MY INITIALS HERE: _____________.
ASSUMPTION OF RISKS-COVID 19
I _____________________________________, acknowledge that I have voluntarily applied to participate on the trip designated on this application. I understand that Covid-19 is a health risk and I may contract Covid-19 while traveling for this retreat. I take sole responsibility for my health and wellbeing while traveling and understand that if I test positive prior to departure from the retreat my home country may deny my re-entry, thus forcing me to expend my trip and incur additional costs. I affirm that I take full responsibility for any and all costs associated with such consequences, including but not limited to: hotel stay, hospital or medical fees, additional Covid-19 tests, transportation to the airport, and medication. I understand it is my responsibility to understand my home country’s legal requirements for reentry after travel abroad and have taken time to speak to my own legal counsel prior to signing this if I have any questions about such requirements. I understand that exact re-entry requirements may change at any moment, even after my signature of this form, and I take full responsibility to know and follow all changes, and hold Luxury Ladies LLS, Kendra Last, their affiliated organizations and their employees, teachers, volunteers or other agencies harmless from any and all costs and health consequences due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. My signature below remains in effect in the event reentry requirements change after the date of my signature. I willingly agree to travel, and understand the risks of Covid-19. I understand Luxury Ladies LLC recommends I talk to my doctor about receiving the Covid-19 vaccination prior to travel, and hold my right to decide if I receive the vaccine or not, and hold Luxury Ladies LLC harmless from my decision to either receive the vaccine or not. I further affirm I will abide by any and all mask mandates and social distancing requirements that may be required at the resort or elsewhere while traveling.
I HEREBY ACCEPT ANY AND ALL RISKS OF ILLNESS, INJURY, ADDITIONAL STAY AND/OR COSTS, EMOTIONAL TRAUMA OR DEATH DUE IN PART OR WHOLE TO COVID 19 AND VERIFY THIS STATEMENT BY PLACING MY INITIALS HERE: _____________.
AS LAWFUL CONSIDERATION for being permitted by Luxury Ladies LLC, Kendra Last, to participate on such trips and activities, I hereby agree that I, my heirs, legal representatives or any member of my family will not make a claim against or sue Luxury Ladies LLC, Kendra Last, or any of their affiliated agents, employees, teachers or volunteers, for bodily injury, death, emotional trauma or property damage resulting from my participation in the tour or expedition.
I therefore release and discharge Luxury Ladies LLC, Kendra Last, and their agents, employees, teachers and volunteers from and against any and all liability arising from my participation in the tour or expedition even though that liability may arise out of negligence or carelessness on the part of Luxury Ladies LLC, Kendra Last, or their affiliate agents, employees, teachers or volunteers.
If any portion of this agreement is unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. Under no circumstances shall Luxury Ladies LLC be liable to any tour participant for more than the land cost of the trip applied for on this document. I waive any charge-back rights and, in the event of dispute, requests for a refund will be made using the procedures described under “Cancellation and Refunds” as stated in the Terms and Conditions for this trip. All applications are subject to acceptance by Luxury Ladies LLC. Upon acceptance of my application, this agreement shall be deemed to have been entered into at Lawrence, Kansas and shall be construed according to the laws of the State of Kansas. In the unlikely event a legal dispute should arise involving any subject matter whatsoever, I agree that the exclusive venue for any legal action shall be Lawrence, Kansas, USA.
I HEREBY ACCEPT THE ABOVE THREE PARAGRAPHS AND VERIFY THIS STATEMENT BY PLACING MY INITIALS HERE: _____________.
We recommend Trip Cancellation insurance or Trip Interruption insurance for this trip. Travel insurance is designed to reimburse you for non-refundable expenses in case of a trip cancellation as well as for other previsions such as: missed flight connections, medical expenses/emergency assistance coverage (if something happens to you personally), baggage & personal effects coverage (if they are lost or stolen), baggage delay (if your bags do not arrive with your flight and you have to buy clothing, and personal items) which could possibly be very costly. Please note that insurance policies vary tremendously and have various critical exclusions. We recommend you choose carefully based on your personal situation.
I HEREBY ACCEPT ANY AND ALL RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH MY REFUSAL TO PURCHASE THE INSURANCE SUGGESTED IN THE ABOVE PARAGRAPH BY PLACING MY INITIALS HERE: _____________.
