The responsibility of The Inside Route, Here Today There Tomorrow, Inc. doing business as Global Spectrum, and our representatives is strictly limited. As tour operators, The Inside Route and Global Spectrum organize, promote, and sell tour programs consisting of travel services that we purchase or reserve from various suppliers, including but not limited to, surface transportation, excursions, and accommodations. To the extent that The Inside Route and/or Global Spectrum is involved in the sale of air transportation to you, we act as an agent of the air carrier. The suppliers are independent contractors and are not agents or employees of The Inside Route or Global Spectrum.
Neither The Inside Route, Global Spectrum or our representatives are responsible for the willful or negligent acts and/or omissions of such suppliers or of any air carrier or their respective employees, agents, servants, or representatives including, without limitation, their failure to deliver or their partial or inadequate delivery of services. All coupons, receipts, reservations, and tickets are issued subject to the terms and conditions specified by the suppliers and/or air carriers.
Travel in developing nations is not similar to travel within the United States. Tours of Viet Nam, Laos, and Cambodia, Myanmar, and Indonesia, like other forms of travel, can involve inconvenience and risk, including forces of nature, geographic and climatic conditions, hygienic standards, infrastructure problems (including road maintenance, transportation delays, and accommodation conditions), and civil unrest or terrorism. Medical services or facilities may not be readily available during all or part of a tour and, if available, may not be equal to standards in the United States.
Participants are solely responsible for being in sufficient health to undertake the tour and for taking all appropriate medical precautions. The Inside Route and Global Spectrum strongly recommend that participants obtain medical/trip cancellation insurance. Preparation for the tour should include studying of the itinerary and pre-departure information provided by The Inside Route and/or Global Spectrum.
Illegal activities are generally punishable by harsher sentences than in the United States. The Inside Route and Global Spectrum will bear no responsibility to assist participants who engage in such activities. The Inside Route and Global Spectrum reserve the right to remove a participant who engages in such activities from a tour and to return the participant to his or her point of departure at the participant's own expense.
PARTICIPANTS ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN WELFARE, AND ACCEPT ANY AND ALL RISKS OF DELAY, UNANTICIPATED EVENTS, ILLNESS, INJURY, EMOTIONAL TRAUMA, DEATH, OR ANY COST INCUR DUE TO INCORRECT OR MISSING INFORMATION PROVIDED TO THE INSIDE ROUTE AND/OR GLOBAL SPECTRUM BY THE PARTICIPANTS OR BY HIS/HER BOOKING AGENT.
Travel services are provided by various suppliers who are independent contractors, and are not agents or employees of The Inside Route or Global Spectrum. By utilizing the services of these suppliers, PARTICIPANT AGREES THAT NEITHER THE INSIDE ROUTE, GLOBAL SPECTRUM OR ITS REPRESENTATIVES WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY HARM TO PARTICIPANT(S) ARISING FROM OCCURENCES OR CONDITIONS BEYOND THE INSIDE ROUTE'S AND GLOBAL SPECTRUM'S CONTROL, INCLUDING ANY PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL HARM.
