Personal Responsibility:

You acknowledge that travel on an AWTY trip requires a degree of flexibility and understand that the trip’s route, accommodation and modes of transport are subject to change without prior notice due to local circumstances. Should AWTY deem it advisable to amend an itinerary for any reason, it may do so by shortening, varying or re-routing any trip. These changes are binding and additional expenses may be charged to you if the reason for any alteration is outside the company’s control, such as spending an additional night due to weather. While travelling with AWTY you agree to accept the authority of the leader and local operator at all times. You are aware that travel within a group may involve compromise to accommodate the diverse desires and physical abilities of group members. You understand that AWTY reserves the right to decline, accept, or retain any person as a member of the group at any time. You acknowledge that AWTY contracts with a network of companies, government agencies and individuals to assist in the running of its tours. To the best of AWTY knowledge, these third parties are qualified to perform the duties they are contracted to perform. However AWTY will not be held liable for any injury, damage, loss, delay or irregularity that may occur due to the behavior of these third parties.
