Terms & Conditions

THIS IS A LEGALLY BINDING RELEASE, WAIVER OF LIABILITY, AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK AGREEMENT (the “Agreement”).

I understand that The Explorer Travel Co 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 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 The Explorer Travel Co 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 The Explorer Travel Co 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 The Explorer Travel Co, 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 The Explorer Travel Co if I have any questions. I understand that discounted fares typically involve restrictions 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 acknowledge that the delay or cancellation of my travel due to illegal/prohibited items in my possessional and any loss occurred thereof is not the responsibility of The Explorer Travel Co. I understand it is my responsibility to confirm with any supplier, airline, or destination and know what these items are.  

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.

 

The Explorer Travel Co has no special knowledge regarding the financial condition of travel service providers selected for my tour, unsafe conditions, health hazards, weather hazards, or climate extremes at locations to which I may travel. For information concerning possible dangers at destinations, The Explorer Travel Co 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, The Explorer Travel Co 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 the airline tickets, air tours or other products I am purchasing are subject to supplemental price increases that may be imposed after the date of purchase. Post-purchase price increases may be applied due to additional costs imposed by a supplier or government. I acknowledge that I may be charged additional sums by The Explorer Travel Co to offset increased fees, fuel surcharges, taxes, fluctuations in foreign exchange markets or any combination thereof. I hereby consent to any post-purchase price increases and authorize The Explorer Travel Co to charge my credit card for such additional amounts.

 

I understand that I may 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.

The Explorer Travel Co will not be liable for any delay or cancellation and any losses caused under this Agreement that are due to any of the following causes, to the extent beyond its reasonable control: acts of God, accident, riots, war, terrorist act, epidemic, pandemic (including the Covid-19 pandemic), quarantine, civil commotion, breakdown of communication facilities, breakdown of web host, breakdown of internet service provider, natural catastrophes, governmental acts or omissions, changes in laws or regulations, national strikes, fire, explosion, or generalized lack of availability of raw materials or energy.  I hereby acknowledge that while current events related to the Covid-19 pandemic are known, future impacts of the outbreak are unforeseeable and shall be considered a Force Majeure event to the extent that they prevent the performance of obligations under this Agreement.

 

The laws of the State of Missouri 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 The Explorer Travel Co shall be brought solely in the courts of Missouri located in Franklin County. In the event any action or proceeding is initiated by me in a court outside of Franklin County, Missouri, I agree to pay The Explorer Travel Co's costs and reasonable attorney fees associated with defending such action or proceeding.
