Coronavirus COVID-19 Waiver of Liability
Applicant is fully aware of the current global Coronavirus COVID-19 virus outbreak, the current travel restrictions, and inherent risks involved if choosing to travel and participate in Island Spirit’s trips. Applicant is aware that the majority of serious cases and deaths contributing to this virus are in people over 60 years old.
Applicant understands that it is his/her responsibility to check the latest travel information regarding this virus outbreak and that he/she should have travel insurance to ensure they have cover for all medical needs and trip cancellation, but understands that medical expenses/and or cancellation relating to the Coronavirus COVID-19 may not be covered.
Travel insurance generally only covers unforeseen events. Most insurers classified COVID-19 as a ‘known event’ late January 2020. This means that if you booked before that, you may still be covered; if you booked after 31 January, it’s unlikely you’ll be covered for anything relating to COVID-19. Please note that most policies have a specific clause stating they do not cover epidemics and pandemics, especially when travel warnings are in place. Check with your insurance company.

The applicant is aware that Immigration restrictions may be put in place before or during your travels. Check with your destination country’s immigration department to confirm you’ll be permitted to enter the country and also your home country/final destination for their regulations.
