Release of Liability
Release of Liability: STS acts only as an agent for the passenger with respect to transportation, hotels, cruise and all matters of
reservations and operation of the tour. STS and its agents and representatives do not accept responsibility for loss, damage, injury, accident,
delay, irregularity, expense or liability caused by negligence or default of any of their subcontracting organizations, their employees, their
agents or representatives, including consulates, passport agencies or express mail couriers. Any such losses or expenses shall be borne by the
participant. We reserve the right to cancel the tour prior to departure in which case the full payment will be refunded to the participant
without any further obligations on our part. It is understood that air or ship tickets when issued shall constitute the sole contract between the
passenger and the carrier concerned. The airlines, cruise, STS and all other transportation companies involved in this tour are not to be held
responsible for any act, omission or event during the time the passenger is not on board. Any sickness, injury, accidents, dismemberment or
death of a passenger is not the responsibility of STS, its agents and representatives, or the airlines involved as clients have been advised of the
option of purchasing individual insurance against such happenings. By signing up for this trip, I acknowledge my full awareness that the visited
country(ies) may have a travel warning issued by the US State Department and it is with our complete free will that we are joining that specific
tour. I could consult their web site at: www.travel.state.gov
Passports & Visas
Passports & Visas: Your passport must be valid for 6 months from the date of return to the USA and must contain empty “Visa” pages.
You are also responsible for checking with the appropriate consular sections of the country/ies visited if a visa is required. STS is not
responsible for any passport or visa problems, delays or any unforeseen conditions that can affect the trip.
Upon acceptance of my application this agreement shall be deemed to have been entered into and performed in Eastpointe, Michigan and
shall be construed according to the laws of Michigan only. In the unlikely event a legal dispute should arise involving any subject matter
whatever, I agree that the dispute shall be settled by binding arbitration through the American Arbitration Association in Michigan. Should the
arbitration provision prove to be unenforceable, I agree that any legal action shall be brought before the appropriate court in Macomb
County, Michigan, or Federal Court in Michigan. I further agree that should the plaintiff fail to prevail in any legal dispute before a court said
plaintiff hereby agrees to pay all reasonable attorneys’ fees for the defendant in the dispute.
With regard to credit card sales for services related to this tour, the client will hold STS and its agents and representatives harmless for all
charge-backs exercised by them or their credit card companies, originating from any complaints
