THIS IS A THIS IS A LEGALLY BINDING RELEASE, WAIVER OF LIABILITY, AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK AGREEMENT (the “Agreement”). Please read it carefully before signing/accepting/acknowledging.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS
I understand that Divine Travel Curators (hereinafter "DTC") is not the source or supplier of the travel services I have requested and acts solely as an agent for the actual suppliers of such services. I have been advised that the suppliers whose names appear in the contracts and/or information supplied to me are those who are actually responsible for providing the travel services I have purchased. I consent to and request the use of those suppliers and agree not to hold “DTC” responsible should any of these suppliers: 1) fail to provide the travel services I have purchased; 2) fail to comply with any applicable law; or 3) engage in any negligent act or omission that causes me any sort of injury, damage, delay or inconvenience.
I accept that “DTC” is not responsible for, nor will I attempt to hold it liable for, any injury, damage or loss I may suffer on account of any conditions, actions or omissions that are beyond its reasonable control. Excepting only liability that directly arises from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of “DTC”, I will not hold it responsible for any injury, damage or loss I may suffer while on any third party provided or operated excursion or activity.
I will review my travel documents for accuracy upon receipt and understand that I may contact “DTC” if I have any questions or require any amendments to documentation. I understand that it is my responsibility to review the accuracy of all details in the travel quotations provided to me and to confirm the same to “DTC”.
I understand that all reservation fares typically involve restrictions (including, but not limited to, restrictions related to cancellation) and that changing any aspect of my travel arrangements may result in the payment of additional money.
I understand that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) requires me to carry a government issued identification card in order to board a flight. I have been advised that the name, date of birth and gender that appears on the identification card must exactly match the same such data that is listed on my airline ticket and in my booking records. I acknowledge that my failure to strictly comply with these requirements may result in denied boarding or an undue delay at an airport security checkpoint causing me to miss my flight.
I understand that if traveling internationally, I must have a valid passport and depending upon my destination and nationality, I may need to obtain one or more visas to gain entry to the intended destination.
“DTC” has no special knowledge regarding the financial condition of travel service providers selected for your tour, unsafe conditions, health hazards, weather hazards, or climate extremes at locations to which you may travel. For information concerning possible dangers at destinations, “DTC” recommends contacting the Travel Warnings Section of the U.S. State Department at 1-888-407-4747 or www.travel.state.gov. For medical information, “DTC” recommends contacting the Centers for Disease Control at 1-800-232-4636 or www.cdc.gov/travel.
I assume full and complete responsibility for checking and verifying any and all passport, visa, vaccination, or other entry requirements of my destination(s), and all conditions regarding health, safety, security, political stability, and labor or civil unrest at such destination(s).
I understand that while optional, it is recommended that I purchase travel insurance to cover certain risks inherent in travel such as supplier bankruptcy and the inability to travel due to a medical or personal emergency.
I agree that, where “DTC” has identified the same in a written communication to me (including via email), a deposit may be required and/or certain itinerary planning charges may be imposed. By way of example only, “DTC” typically charges a $100 deposit for itinerary searching services, which will be credited back to you as a credit towards your total cost if the trip is ultimately booked. If the trip is not booked, or if a booked trip is canceled, the deposit would be forfeited and would become compensation to “DTC” for the work associated with the searching, planning and communication activities. Custom itinerary planning fees may be charged for multi-destination trips and trips that include coordination of multiple modes of transportation (e.g., flights, trains, ground transfers, etc.). Additional dining reservations, or changes to already confirmed dining reservations may result in a $25 per change fee. With the exception of the immediately previous sentence regarding dining reservations and changes to the same, all other charges will be imposed only if advised in writing (including via email) by “DTC”.
The laws of the State of Georgia govern the rights and obligations of the parties to this Agreement and the interpretation, construction and enforceability thereof. I agree that any action or proceeding brought by me against “DTC” shall be brought solely in the courts of Georgia located in Gwinnett County. In the event any action or proceeding is initiated by me in a court outside of Gwinnett County, Georgia, I agree to pay “DTC’s” costs and reasonable attorney fees associated with defending such action or proceeding.
