LIABILITY WAIVER, AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND INDEMNIFICATION AGREEMENT
THIS IS A LEGALLY BINDING CONTRACT. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE SIGNING.
PLEASE PRINT A COPY FOR YOUR RECORDS
Before your airline, hotel, car rental, cruise, tour, or other travel service purchase can be finalized, we require you to sign this form. Your acceptance of this itinerary, reservations or invoice, or your signature below signifies your agreement with the following terms and conditions:
Release for Supplier Acts or Omissions
DoubleJ Destinations (“DoubleJ Destinations”) acts as an agent for any airline, hotel, car-rental company, tour operator, cruise line, or other service provider named in your itinerary (“Suppliers”). DOUBLEJ DESTINATIONS is not responsible for acts or omissions of the Suppliers, their defaults or their failure to provide services or adhere to their own schedules. DOUBLEJ DESTINATIONS assumes no responsibility for and shall not be liable for any refund, personal injury, property damage, or other loss, accident, delay, inconvenience, or irregularity which may be caused by: (1) any defaults, wrongful or negligent acts, or omissions of the Suppliers; (2) any defect in or failure of any vehicle, craft, equipment, or instrumentality owned, operated, or otherwise used or provided by the Suppliers; (3) any wrongful or negligent acts or omissions on the part of any other party not under DOUBLEJ DESTINATIONS’ control; and (4) any Supplier price drop after your travel arrangements have been confirmed, paid in full, or ticketed. You hereby release DOUBLEJ DESTINATIONS from all claims arising out of any problem covered in this paragraph.
Supplier Terms and Conditions
Suppliers have their own contracts covering cancellation penalties and other terms and conditions, and you may be bound by those contracts regardless of whether you receive notice of their terms. By accepting this itinerary, reservation or invoice, or by clicking “I Agree” on your computer screen, you hereby consent to those terms and conditions.
DOUBLEJ DESTINATIONS has no special knowledge concerning unsafe conditions, political unrest, dangers to health, weather hazards, natural disasters, climate extremes in the destinations you may travel or the financial condition of the Suppliers. To obtain information on unsafe country conditions, we advise contacting the Travel Warnings Section of the U.S. State Department at (202) 647-5225 or visit their website at https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/international-travel/International-Travel-Country-Information-Pages.html. DOUBLEJ DESTINATIONS highly recommends registering with the State Department’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive travel alerts and warnings that may issue in the future. STEP enrollment enables the local U.S. consulate to better assist American citizens traveling overseas in case a personal emergency arises during overseas travel. You can enroll in STEP at https://step.state.gov/step/. To obtain health and medical information related to travel destinations, we advise contacting the Centers for Disease Control at (877) FYI-TRIP or visit their website at www.cdc.gov/travel. You assume full and complete responsibility for checking and verifying any and all passport, visa, vaccination, or other entry requirements of your destinations, and all conditions regarding health, safety, security, political stability, and labor or civil unrest at such destination(s).
You agree that it is your intention to FULLY ASSUME ALL RISK, HAZARDS AND DANGERS that may arise and cause injury in the destinations you are travelling to. You hereby release DOUBLEJ DESTINATIONS from all claims arising out of any problem covered in this paragraph. You acknowledge and understand that in any instance the term “release” is used in this agreement it covers any claims arising from DOUBLEJ DESTINATIONS; ordinary, but not gross, negligence.
IN NO EVENT WILL WE BE LIABLE FOR ANY INJURY, LOSS, CLAIM, DAMAGE, OR ANY SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE, THAT ARISE OUT OF OR ARE IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THE TRAVEL SERVICES YOU HAVE PURCHASED, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY EXCEED THE TOTAL TRIP PRICE SET FORTH IN YOUR CONFIRMATION.
Travel Insurance, Credit Card Purchase Recommended
For your protection, we strongly recommend that you purchase trip cancellation and travel accident insurance. However, no representation or description of the insurance made by our staff constitutes a binding assurance or promise about the insurance. We also strongly recommend that you use a credit card for your purchase, so that you can exercise your rights under the Fair Credit Billing Act if you do not receive the services you purchased.
Governing Law, Jurisdiction and Severability
This Agreement will be interpreted according to the laws of the State of Minnesota in the United States. You agree to make good faith attempts to resolve any disputes that may arise from this agreement first through various forms of alternative dispute resolution, including, but not limited to, amicable negotiations, mediation, or arbitration in Minnesota. If the good faith efforts of alternative resolution fail, jurisdiction over any dispute arising out of, in connection with, or relating to this Agreement and/or the transactions and relationships among the parties contemplated by this Agreement shall be filed exclusively in federal or state court in Anoka County, Minnesota. You agree to personal jurisdiction in the specified forum. In the event any action or proceeding is initiated by me in a court outside of Anoka County, Minnesota, you agree to pay our costs and reasonable attorney fees associated with defending such action or proceeding. If any portion of this agreement is determined by a court to be null and void, the remaining portions of this agreement shall nevertheless remain valid and binding upon the parties.
By signing below, I acknowledge that I have carefully read and fully understand and agree to the contents and legal consequences of this document.
