On March 11, 2020, the COVID-19 outbreak was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. For all intents and purposes, any travel changes or impact related to or occurring as a result of the Virus, although where otherwise could be acknowledged as “foreseeable,” will qualify as unforeseeable and as a “Force Majeure” event. Due to the ever-changing and unpredictable nature of the Virus/pandemic, 1000 Leagues Travel will make every effort to effect all Trips as planned but under various circumstances (government-mandated, safety-related, Supplier-affected, or otherwise) may need to modify or cancel a Trip, in part or in its entirety, and may be unable to provide refunds or credits to the traveler.
The Company will not be held liable for any new or existing infection contracted or transmission encountered before or during a Trip, and any damages or losses thereby incurred. It is the traveler’s responsibility to inform 1000 Leagues Travel if he/she has detected or been diagnosed with an infection at any point before, during, or within 14 days following a Trip. Although not an automatic preclusion, the Company will, in its discretion, disallow or terminate travel by anyone previously, currently, or newly (throughout the course of a Trip) infected by the Virus. It is your responsibility to ensure your insurance plan covers you if the Virus affects your travel plans in any way.
Proof of COVID-19 vaccination may be required. If we choose to require proof due to an increase in case numbers, and/or the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), or countries we will be visiting require it, you will then be required to show proof of current vaccination and all required boosters of an approved vaccine to 1000 Leagues Travel at least seven (7) days before the first day of the Trip, or you will not be allowed to participate in the Trip and will forfeit all your payments. The type of vaccine accepted by different countries may vary, and all our groups will have to comply with all the requirements from the CDC, WHO, and countries we will be visiting, traveling through, or returning to. Noncompliance with any of the vaccinations requirements at any time may result in your removal from the trip without any refunds or compensation. 1000 Leagues Travel will not be held responsible for any circumstances resulting from failure to provide proof of vaccination.
Proof of a negative COVID-19 test might also be required. All travelers must be ready to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test if required by any of the locations we will be visiting, travelling through, or returning to. Noncompliance may result in your removal from the trip without any refunds or compensation, and furthermore may result in imposed quarantine or other measures, which might result in loss of airfare and other financial consequences. 1000 Leagues Travel will not be held responsible for any circumstances resulting from failure to provide a negative COVID-19 test whenever required.Our COVID-19 policy will remain under continual revision, but until containment and predictability are achieved will be governed as herein stated.
