By booking a tour at this time, you acknowledge the highly contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk for yourself and any minors traveling with you, that you or they may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by traveling and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death even if such injuries or losses occur in a manner that is not foreseeable at the time you book your tour. You acknowledge that exposure to such viruses or disease is an inherent risk of traveling that cannot be controlled or eliminated by Insider.
You acknowledge that due to the uncertainty of travel at this time, your tour may be postponed or cancelled, or changes may be made to itineraries due to closures of certain sites or activities, for which there may be no refund. Some locations may require you to have a vaccination and proof of a negative covid test at your own expense. Upon return home, additional requirements and/or testing may apply. You are responsible for understanding these requirements and must not rely on Insider to provide these details. You understand that you may become sick before, during, or after the tour and may not be able to travel and such cancellation or interruption will be subject to our cancellation terms and COVID- 19 Cancellation below.
You agree that due to uncertainty caused by COVID 19, Insider has strongly encouraged the purchase of travel protection coverage including Cancel For Any Reason coverage if and when available, and that should you fail to purchase travel protection coverage, Insider shall not be liable to any losses howsoever arising.

Dates, itineraries, and prices for this program are valid only for THE TENNIS EXPEDITION TO ANTARCTICA, FEATURING JOHN McENROE AND PATRICK McENROE, February 14 - February 27, 2023.
We reserve the right to add a supplement to your travel prices should our costs of supplying your travel increase, until we receive your final payment. After your final payment, your price is locked in.
For the purposes of these terms, conditions and waiver, a traveler is considered to have commenced the Expedition when they check in at the hotel in Buenos Aires, Argentina on February 14, 2023, and a traveler is considered to have completed the Expedition when they disembark the plane after their return flight from Ushuaia to Buenos Aires, Argentina on February 27, 2023.
We reserve the right to make changes to and correct errors in advertised prices at any time before your travel is confirmed.
We highly recommend all travelers purchase travel insurance within two weeks of initial deposit.
A deposit of $3,000 USD per traveler is required to secure your spot. We expect this once-in-a lifetime expedition to sell out quickly. Deposits and confirmations will be offered on a first-come, first-serve basis with a waiting list created for cancelations. Both deposits and full trip payments may be made by personal check or credit card. The returned check fee is $100. You can book with the utmost confidence as Insider guarantees that you will be refunded if Insider cancels the expedition.
You must not make any air reservations until you receive confirmation of your booking and the final charter flight schedule from Insider. We highly recommend booking refundable air in case of any changes and that you plan to arrive in Buenos Aires one day in advance of the trip (February 13, 2023) to ensure that you do not miss the charter flight to Ushuaia. Insider is not responsible for any delays or interruptions during your travel to or from Buenos Aires and there will be no refund provided if you miss the charter flight. Your contract for airfare is with the carrier and subject to its terms and we will not be liable for any change fees or cancellation fees or other additional cost you incur with the air carrier.
Due to the anticipated demand of the program and the limited availability of tickets, the trip deposit is non-refundable. Ticket registration is non-transferable and cannot be resold through any third-party or secondary markets under any circumstances. Any registered traveler in violation of this resale policy will forfeit their ticket and all payments without refund. In rare circumstances where the health of a traveler (including testing positive for COVID-19) prevents their attendance on the trip, Insider will allow ticket transfer to a person of your choice or from the waitlist.
Your final invoice will be due no later than December 14, 2022. Payment after this date may result in your space being lost to another traveler.
All deposits are non-refundable. After December 14, 2022 (60 days or less before departure), the cancellation fee is 100% of total trip cost. If you are entitled to a refund, please note that the supplier is responsible for this refund, not Insider Expeditions. Suppliers may choose to provide a travel voucher or credit in lieu of refund. We are not responsible for a supplier’s failure to pay a refund or for supplier bankruptcy or insolvency.
Credit Card Bookings
While we do accept major credit cards including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover, travelers must provide to us a click or signed authorization for every transaction for your trip. Your authorization is an agreement for us to charge your card and an acknowledgement and agreement to these terms and conditions including the cancellation terms. As such you agree not to make any improper chargebacks.
In certain cases, you can dispute charges with credit card companies ("chargebacks"). Before initiating a chargeback, we ask you first to call us to discuss any questions or concerns about our charges. We will work with you in attempting to resolve your concerns. By using our service to make a reservation, you accept and agree to our cancellation policy. Insider retains the right to dispute any chargeback that is improper and recover any costs, including attorney’s fees related to improper chargebacks. Additionally, in the event of an improper chargeback, we retain the right to cancel any travel reservation related to that improper chargeback. The following chargeback scenarios are improper, and we retain the right to investigate and rebut any such chargeback claims:
Extenuating Circumstances for COVID-19
Traveler safety is our number one priority. If authorities deem it unsafe to travel, we will work to postpone the trip to a future date. In the event of official trip cancellation by us due to COVID-19 or for any other reason, all participants will be fully refunded.
If the reason for cancellation is covered under the terms of your travel protection plan you may be able to reclaim these charges, for this reason we strongly encourage the purchase of a travel protection plan including additional Cancel For Any Reason coverage.
The entire expedition (including chartered flight and cruise) will follow all CDC, FAA and IAATO guidelines and laws. At this time, COVID-19 vaccination is required for all passengers in advance of the voyage.
At this time under current regulations, we expect that all voyagers will be required to complete a COVID-19 PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test with negative results within 72 hours of arrival in Argentina on February 14, 2023. A rapid antigen test will also be administered prior to boarding the charter flight.
If a traveler tests positive for COVID-19 or experiences COVID-19 symptoms on any day after a traveler’s planned arrival day, the traveler will be required to follow all instructions from the onboard medical doctor and staff, which may include quarantining for the duration of the voyage, and a refund or rebooking will not be offered.
If a traveler fails to follow the direction and instruction of the onboard medical doctor and staff regarding quarantining or any other safety procedures, the traveler may be removed from the vessel by the ship’s captain and repatriated at their own expense.
The expedition is a tennis-themed cruise to Antarctica with the McEnroes (the “Cruise”). Nothing contained herein is intended to be, nor shall it be construed as a right or guarantee to specifically attend any particular event on any particular date. You and Insider agree that you are purchasing passage on board a specific vessel during a specific period of time during which time it is anticipated that the McEnroes will be present and play tennis in Argentina.
Please note that due to this expedition being in Antarctica, there are very specific guidelines and procedures that need to be respected by all staff and travelers while on the continent. In the true nature of Antarctica, this expedition will respect the rules set forth in order to ensure we are only introducing the most environmentally friendly materials onto the continent.
In order for us to confirm your travel arrangements you must provide all requested details. Necessary details include any pre-existing medical conditions you have which may affect your ability to complete your travel arrangements. Travelers voluntarily assume full and sole responsibility for all risks and/or costs involved with failure to report any errors and/or omissions to documentation.
Please ensure the information you've provided in this web form is correct. Insider will not be responsible for omissions or errors if not brought to our attention immediately.
If prior to and/or during actual travel, circumstances require changes, Insider and its suppliers reserve the right to cancel or vary any itinerary and substitute components of any tour, including but not limited to talent, vessel, hotels, and accommodations of comparable quality, if air schedule or surface transportation charges, security matters, and/or other events make such alterations necessary, so long as the core aspects of our program remain the same, offering a flight/cruise to Antarctica with the itinerary described. Suppliers may substitute transportation equipment depending on any variety of factors, including the volume of passengers on the tour. Tours may be altered as described above. As an example, weather may make one landing site on Antarctica, on one particular day, better as an experience than a different landing site and may change the itinerary as a result. Insider cannot be held responsible for any closures, necessary itinerary changes, or curtailments for any reason.
Safety is the most important priority of our travelers and team. Insider assumes no liability for, any loss, damage, delay, or cancellation resulting in whole or in part from an Act of God or any other Force Majeure condition, including, without limitation: fire, volcanic eruption, hurricane, environmental pollution or contamination, inclement weather, earthquake, low or high water levels, flood, water or power shortages or failures, tropical storms or hurricanes, riots or civil commissions or disturbances, and any other acts of a similar nature, sabotage, arrests, strikes or labor disruptions, restraint of rulers or peoples, expropriations, acts of terrorism, war, insurrection, quarantine restrictions, government health advisories, epidemics, pandemics, or warnings or alerts of any kind of nature, government seizures, refusal or cancellation or suspension or delay of any government authority or any license, permit or authorization, damages to its facilities or the travel supplier and its facilities, or any other unforeseen circumstances or any other factors unforeseen by Insider that impacts negatively on, or hampers, its ability to fulfill any of its contractual conditions. We are not responsible for any incidental expenses that you may have incurred as a result of your booking including but not limited to visas, vaccinations, travel insurance excess or non-refundable flights.
If for any reason, epidemics or pandemics (including the COVID-19/SARS-Cov-2 pandemic which for clarity by itself does not constitute an event of force majeure, provided that if guests are prohibited from traveling to attend the Cruise such prohibition shall constitute a “COVID Force Majeure” entitling Insider to work in good faith with the guests to reschedule the services/Cruise), travel advisories, public health threats/CDC warnings, delays of commercial carriers, restraints of public authority, lack of necessary approvals from IAATO, the governing body of Antarctica, and thus failure to obtain the permits to approve Cruise itself, the Cruise is canceled Insider shall have the right to extend the Term and reschedule the Cruise, without any additional compensation to the guests.
The following inclusions are subject to change based on factors that may be out of Insider control, including but not limited to, weather events, recommendations from the Captain and crew, and any force majeure events.
The additional perks included in VIP packages are subject to change at the discretion of talent and Insider. These perks are assigned to each respective cabin in the listing upon booking, and the following list does not dictate what is included in each VIP suite, but rather is an exhaustive list of all VIP perks. All of these perks are subject to time constraints at the discretion of Insider.
Minimum General Policy: All travelers must be at least 8 years of age by the date of travel. All travelers under the age of 18 must travel with a parent or guardian. REMINDER: ALL GUESTS MUST BE VACCINATED TO JOIN THIS EXCURSION INCLUDING CHILDREN.
Maximum General Policy: We have no upper age limit though we remind you that passengers must ensure that they are suitably fit to allow safe participation. The nature of this trip means that it may be unsuitable for those who use a wheelchair or have a lack of mobility. However, we will be delighted to discuss the feasibility of your participation in any of our trips. For the safety of our travelers, Insider reserves the right to request health information prior to travel and to exclude any participants it deems unfit for travel at its sole discretion.
While your voyage includes limited emergency insurance coverage to include evacuation, repatriation, and medical care in the event of an emergency (up to 200,000 USD), we strongly recommend the purchase of trip cancellation and baggage insurance through a company of your choice. Such plan should cover Trip Cancellation or Interruption, Medical Expense, Emergency Evacuation/Repatriation, and Baggage. Travel protection plans can help protect you in the event of loss of non-refundable trip deposits and payments that result from cancellation or trip interruption (due to a covered reason such as injury or illness before or during the trip). It also helps with reimbursement for medical emergency costs (including very costly medical evacuation costs), missed connections and baggage loss. Travel Protection Plans including cancel for any reason coverage must be purchased in close conjunction with your travel purchase.
Insider is not qualified to answer technical questions about the benefits, exclusions, and conditions of travel insurance plans. Insider cannot evaluate the adequacy of the prospective insured's existing insurance coverage. If you have any questions about your travel protection, call your insurer or insurance agent or broker.
Declining to purchase an adequate travel protection plan could result in the loss of your already paid travel expenses and/or require you to make additional unplanned expenditures in the event of unforeseen circumstances. You also acknowledge that without this coverage, there may be no way to recoup any losses, costs or expenses incurred. If you choose to travel without adequate coverage, we will not be liable for any of your losses howsoever arising, for which trip protection plan coverage would otherwise have been available.
You appreciate and acknowledge that the nature of this type of travel requires considerable flexibility and you should allow for alternatives. The itinerary provided for each trip is representative of the types of activities contemplated, but it is understood that the route, schedules, itineraries, amenities, and mode of transport may be subject to alteration without prior notice due to local circumstances or events. These changes will not be considered material changes and will not be considered cause for cancellation by the guest.
If we suggest alternate activities in place of a change or in case of leisure time, such suggestions do not constitute our endorsement. In such a case you will be subject to the terms and conditions of the supplier of the activity and your only recourse in case of damage will be against the supplier of the alternate activity.
While we endeavor to operate all trips as described or as communicated to guests onboard, the weather conditions on Antarctica sometimes require a deviation to another landing zone in Antarctica.
Before departure: If we make a major change, we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before departure.
Departure: Insider is not responsible for any charges incurred concerning onward flights, if your transportation to or from Buenos Aires, Argentina is missed by you, or delayed, for any reason.
After departure: We reserve the right to change an itinerary after departure due to local circumstances or events outside of our control. These changes will not be considered a material change and will not be considered cause for cancellation by the guest.
Our group trips are run by a group leader. The decision of the group leader is final on all matters likely to affect the safety or well-being of any person participating in the trip. If you fail to comply with a decision made by a group leader or interfere with the well-being or mobility of the group, the group leader may request for you to leave the trip immediately, with no right of refund. You must always comply with the laws, customs, and drug regulations of all states, territories, seas and lands visited during the voyage, including but not limited to Argentina and Antarctica.
Insider’s prices are based on contract rates, and there will not be any refund for any unused portion of a travel booking. If you cancel while the trip is in progress or are asked to leave under Section 17 of these terms and conditions, there is no refund for the unused portion.
Traveler agrees to and shall indemnify and hold harmless Insider, and each of our officers, partners, directors, employees and agents (collectively “Insider”), from any expenses, losses, liabilities, damages, judgments, settlements and costs (collectively, “damages”) involved with or incurred by Insider (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and the advancement of same) with respect to any claims, law suits, arbitrations, or other causes of action, which result, directly or indirectly, from: (i) traveler’s breach or violation, or threatened breach or violation, of this Agreement and (ii) Any damage caused by traveler while participating in the trip.
Travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than others. We use information from government foreign departments and reports from our own contacts in assessing whether the itinerary should operate. However, it is also your own responsibility to acquaint yourself with all possible relevant travel information and the nature of your itinerary. You acknowledge that your decision to travel is made in light of consideration of this information and you accept that you are aware of the personal risks attendant upon such travel. Information on conditions in various countries and the level of risk associated with travel to particular international destinations can be found at http://www.state.gov, and http://www.cdc.gov. In addition, you should consult with government websites to ensure that you are in compliance with all requirements for admittance into that country, including COVID- 19 requirements, as well as understanding local laws that govern travel within a country, such as medical tests, tracking, and vaccination requirements. It is your responsibility to be aware of all requirements for admittance to a country or state, including Covid-19 requirements. Should you choose to travel to a country that has been issued a travel warning or advisory, Insider will not be liable for damages or losses that result from travel to such destinations.
It is the responsibility of each traveler to obtain and carry a valid passport, visa(s), inoculations, and all other documents required by applicable government regulations. For up-to-date requirements US citizens should visit www.travel.state.gov. When travelling domestically within the USA or internationally, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) advise that everyone carry at least two forms of acceptable identification to board a flight, found here: http://www.tsa.gov/traveler-information/acceptable-ids. Insider strongly recommends that you consider that certain countries will not admit a passenger if their passport expires within six (6) months of the date of entry. Non-USA citizens may require additional documentation.
Recommended inoculations for travel may change and you should consult your practitioner for current recommendations before you depart. It is your responsibility to ensure that you meet all health entry requirements, obtain the recommended inoculations, take all recommended medication, and follow all medical advice in relation to your trip. Inoculation requirements can be found on the Center for Disease Control website at https://www.cdc.gov/.
You acknowledge any failure to strictly comply with these requirements may result in denied boarding or an undue delay at an airport security checkpoint causing travelers to miss flight(s), and subsequent scheduled travel bookings tours. Insider bears no responsibility for advising and/or obtaining required travel documentation for you, or for any delays, damages, and/or losses including missed portions of your vacation related to improper documentation or government decisions about entry.
You acknowledge that the nature of the trip is adventurous, and participation involves a degree of personal risk. You will be visiting places where the political, cultural, and geographical attributes present dangers and physical challenges greater than those present in our daily lives. Inherent risks include, but are not limited to, risk of injury or death from: incidents on board the vessel including, slips, falls, and being thrown overboard or other injuries due to your own negligence or from the movement of the ship; weather conditions at sea including squalls, arctic cyclones, water spouts, encounters with ice floats, icebergs, or growlers; accidents at sea which may require evacuation from the vessel; injuries during land expeditions including slips and falls due to ice or obstructions on trails, improper use of equipment, or failure of equipment, whether from your own negligence or the negligence of others including employees and/or agents of Insider; encounters with or attacks by marine life, animals and/or insects; exposure to plant life; criminal or terrorist acts; government actions; consumption of alcoholic beverages, tainted food, or non-potable water; exposure to the elements, including heat, cold, sun, water, and wind (you acknowledge that such exposure may lead to hypothermia and death); your own negligence and/or the negligence of others, including tour guides, other travelers, Insider Expeditions and its employees, agents and/or representatives; accidents or illness occurring in remote places where there are no available medical services; fatigue, chill, overheating, and/or dizziness; known or unknown medical conditions; physical exertion for which you are not prepared or other accidents that result from physical activity; the negligence or lack of adequate training of any third-party providers who seek to assist with medical or other help either before or after injuries have occurred; accident or illness without access to means of rapid evacuation or availability of medical supplies or services; and the adequacy of medical attention once provided.
Antarctica is a remote region and our voyage will take us away from airports, population centers, and most of civilization. At all times, our safety and passenger comfort will be the top priority. It will not be possible for a traveler to depart the vessel mid-voyage for personal elective reasons without an emergency airlift evacuation ordered by the ship’s doctor that would be significantly costly. Insider will be securing medical evacuation insurance up to $200,000 USD for each traveler. Insider cannot guarantee this would cover the full cost of medical emergency services required. Moreover, maneuvering the ship to facilitate evacuation has the potential to cause significant disruption to the itinerary and experience of other travelers. Travelers participating in the voyage agree that they will be unable to depart the voyage early for any elective reason. It is important for travelers to realistically understand and agree to the logistics of an ocean voyage to the most remote parts of the planet, as unforeseen events at home related to work or family can always occur.
Traveler understands the description of these risks is not complete and that unknown or unanticipated risks may result in injury, illness, or death. In order to partake of the enjoyment and excitement of this trip, the traveler must be willing to accept the risks and uncertainty involved as being an integral part of travel, including the risk of infection, illness, and death. Traveler hereby accepts and assumes full responsibility for any and all risks and agrees to and shall hold harmless and fully release Insider Expeditions from any and all claims associated with the trip, including any claims of third party negligence and/or the negligence of Insider, and traveler hereby covenants not to sue Insider Expeditions for any such claims or join any lawsuit or action that is suing Insider. This agreement also binds your heirs, legal representatives, and assigns. The terms of this HOLD HARMLESS AND RELEASE OF ALL LIABILITY paragraph, shall survive any termination or cancellation of this Contract, whether by operation of law or otherwise.
We contract with a network of companies, government agencies and individuals to assist in the running of our trips as agents for these third parties. We are not responsible for the acts and omissions of these third parties.
To the fullest extent permitted by law:
Any liability for any loss, death, injury, or damage which you may suffer (directly or indirectly) in connection with or arising out of your participation in a trip, or any breach of the Booking Conditions, is excluded.
You release us and our officers, employees, agents, and representatives from any liability and expressly waive any claims you may have against us arising out of or in connection with your participation in a trip.
Any condition or warranty which would otherwise be implied by law into these Booking Conditions (Implied Warranty), is excluded.
To the extent an Implied Warranty cannot be excluded, our liability in respect of the Implied Warranty is limited to (in our absolute discretion): (i) the provision of a similar trip to an equivalent value; or (ii) a refund of the total amount received by us from you in connection with your booking.
Any claim by you is excluded to the extent that it is for indirect or consequential loss, loss of profits or economic loss, however it arises, or for indirect, special, punitive, or exemplary damages.
Insider and their employees, shareholders, affiliates, officers, directors, successors, agents and assigns neither own nor operate any entity which is to, or does, provide goods or services for your trip including, for example, lodging facilities, airlines, vessels, vehicles, or other transportation companies, guides, or guide services, local ground operators, providers or organizers of optional excursions, food services providers, etc. All such persons and entities are independent contractors and not affiliated with Insider in any way. Insider makes these travel arrangements under the express condition that Insider is not liable for any negligent or willful act or failure to act of any such person or entity of any third party. In addition, and without limitation, Insider is not responsible for any injury, loss, death, inconvenience, delay, expense, irregularity or damage to person or property in connection with the provision of any goods or services, by any company or individual engaged in providing those services. Each of these passenger conveyance companies, tour companies, hotels, restaurants, guides, etc. is subject to the laws of the state or country where the services are provided.
Responsibility is also not accepted for bodily injury, property damage or loss or any other expense whether resulting from, but not limited to, acts of God or force majeure, acts of war or civil unrest, acts of insurrection or revolt, animals, strikes or other labor activities, criminal or terrorist activities of any kind, sickness, illness, weather, fire, flood, the lack of availability of or access to appropriate medical attention, overbooking or downgrading of accommodations, mechanical or other failure of airplanes or other means of transportation, any failure of any transportation mechanism to arrive or depart on time, or any other event beyond Insider’s control. If due to weather, flight schedules or other uncontrollable factors, you are required to spend an additional night(s), then you are responsible for your own hotel, transfers, and meal costs.
In the event an airline or travel vendor declares bankruptcy, it is not obligated to carry you or to provide funds. Money given for your travel immediately becomes the property of the airline or travel vendor as required by law. We are not allowed to provide refunds for vendors who have declared bankruptcy. If an airline or travel vendor declares bankruptcy, it might continue services or stop completely. Other airlines or travel vendors might provide alternative services under the limited circumstances.
Baggage is entirely at owner’s risk. Personal effects are the sole responsibility of the owners at all times. We reserve the right to decline to accept or retain any person as a participant on these trips at any time, or to require any person to withdraw from the tour at any time, when such action is determined by their representatives to be in the best interests of their health, safety, and general welfare of the tour group or individual. Any physical or mental condition that may require special medical attention must be reported in writing at the time of reservation. We reserve the right to withdraw without penalty any tour announced and refund all money.
We cannot guarantee the size of the group. We do not accept liability for any airline change or cancellation penalty incurred by the purchase of a nonrefundable airline ticket. The air ticket when issued shall constitute the sole contract between the passenger and the airline concerned.
By submitting the deposit, the participant certifies that he/she does not have any mental, physical, or other condition of disability that would create a hazard for him/herself or other participants and accepts the terms and conditions of this contract.
Breach or Cancellation by Talent
Insider has entered into an agreement with The McEnroes to participate in accordance with terms specified therein.
Insider shall not be liable or responsible for any loss, damage, cost, or expense of any kind to any Guest or any other person or entity if such participation is prevented or such loss, damage, cost, or expense is caused by or results directly or indirectly from any act of God, war, fire, collision, directions of underwriters, arrest, order or restraint by any government agency or official acting under color of authority, acts of terrorism, labor disturbances or disputes, civil commotion, weather conditions and considerations of the safety of the vessel (for which the Master shall be the sole judge), breakdowns of or damage to the vessel’s hull or machinery, requisition of the vessel by governmental authority, illness, death of a family member or other cause or circumstance beyond Insider’s reasonable control.
If the McEnroes fail to participate during the cruise, Insider, on a commercially reasonable basis, may engage a replacement player(s), or may change and/or postpone all or any part of the Cruise or the entertainment program. In such a case, Insider shall have no liability to you for any loss, damage, cost or expense whatsoever by reason of such change, except that a postponement shall be for a commercially reasonable time.
If the Cruise is cancelled, Insider shall make a complete refund within ten (10) days to each paying Guest.
In any other case, including without limitation any breach of contract or failure to participate by any player, you and Insider acknowledge that Guest’s actual losses arising from such breach, cancellation or termination would be difficult if not impossible to calculate at the time of entry into this Agreement. A number of factors contribute to these uncertainties including without limitation the fact that Guest has embarked on a cruise and other substitute entertainment, experiences and opportunities will be provided for Guest’s enjoyment and the difficulty of arranging substitute entertainment.
Therefore, Guest agrees that the remedies described herein (substitution for any particular player or partial refund in the event of cancellation) represent fair compensation in the nature of liquidated damages to the exclusion of all other damages payable by Insider, whether direct or indirect, proximate or incidental or consequential, for such modification, cancellation or termination of the Cruise or performance by Insider. If the Cruise is canceled as the result of any failure to perform or appear of a contracted player, Guest shall be entitled to the sum of $1,000.00 USD representing a prorated amount of the entertainment portion of the consideration paid by Guest. No Guest shall be entitled to recover any incidental or consequential losses or damages sustained by him or her. Each Guest agrees this remedy shall be his or her exclusive remedy.
Optional activities not included in the trip price do not form part of the trip or this contract. You accept that any assistance given by your group leader or our local representative in arranging optional activities does not render us liable for them in any way. The contract for the provision of that activity will be between you and the activity provider.
If you have a complaint about your trip, please inform one of the group leaders on the program, or email immediately firstname.lastname@example.org at the time in order that they can attempt to rectify the matter. If satisfaction is not reached through these means, then any further complaint should be put in writing to us within 30 days of the end of the Cruise.
In the event that any term or condition contained in these Booking Conditions is deemed unenforceable, or void by operation of law or as being against public policy or for any other reason, then such term or condition shall be deemed to be severed from this contract or amended accordingly only to such extent necessary to allow all remaining terms and conditions to survive and continue as binding.
Any personal information that we collect about you may be used for any purpose associated with the safe and effective operation of a Trip. The information may be disclosed to our agents, service providers or other suppliers to enable us to operate the Trip.
Insider Expeditions is a US-based tour operator and any and all claims, complaints, or disputes, must be undergone in the jurisdiction of the United States. The laws of Washington, DC, USA govern these Booking Conditions to the fullest extent allowable.
Any disputes in connection with a trip or these Booking Conditions must be initiated in the courts of Washington, DC. You agree that you will only bring claims against Insider in your individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Insider shall not in any case be liable for other than compensatory damages, and your payment of a deposit on a trip means that you agree to these conditions of sale and expressly waive any right to punitive damages.
You understand and agree that no claims will be considered and that you will not bring suit against Insider Expeditions unless you have first provided a typewritten notice of claim to Insider within 30 days after the trip or cancellation of the trip.
