The Fine Print
The terms “ARAC,” “we” and “our” refer to Angela Ritchie’s Ace Camps Inc., a British Columbia corporation, which offers and operates all the trips listed herein. All trips are offered subject to ARAC’s standard terms and conditions. Please review the terms and conditions carefully prior to completing your reservation. Some of these terms and conditions are set out below to draw your attention to the fact that our obligations to you are limited.
Once the trip begins, we will do everything possible to ensure your enjoyment, and we rely on you to tell us if something is not working. We look forward to a successful partnership together, and we hope that you sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
All travelers assume the responsibility to select or design the trip most appropriate to their physical abilities and interests. Travelers are responsible for being in sufficiently good health to undertake their trip; for obtaining the appropriate medical and cancellation insurance; for studying all pre-departure information; and for acting in a manner considerate of fellow travelers and the countries visited. Travelers assume full responsibility for all risks, including but not limited to any loss, injury, death or damage to them, their family or their dependants arising in connection with their participation, or the participation of their family, in the trips, and for ensuring that they have adequate insurance coverage to cover any loss.
Any form of travel contains inherent risks and medical facilities and services may not be easily accessible and may not be sophisticated. There are other risks associated with the trips, such as theft or loss of or damage to property. Some of the services provided in connection with the trip, including lodging, transportation, food service, and local tours and activities, are obtained from independent suppliers over whom ARAC has no control.
Although ARAC endeavors to choose appropriate independent suppliers to provide services on the trips, ARAC has no right to control their operations and therefore makes travel arrangements for the trips on the condition that ARAC will not be liable for any act or omission of any independent supplier or any unrelated third party. The services provided by independent suppliers are subject to the laws of the place where the services are provided, and any conditions imposed by those suppliers. The liability of the independent suppliers may be limited by their tariffs, conditions of carriage, tickets and vouchers, and international conventions and agreements.
Travelers further agree that they will indemnify and hold ARAC harmless in respect of any claims arising in connection with the trip made by: i) third parties, which arise from the misconduct of the travelers; ii) the traveler’s family members, dependants or heirs, iii) third parties, which the traveler, their estate, their family members, dependants or heirs have sued, if damages are recovered from such third parties, to the extent the third party obtains any indemnification from ARAC; except where the loss, injury, death or damage is caused by the reckless or fraudulent conduct on the part of ARAC, or their employees, guides, shareholders, officers or directors.
ARAC reserves the right to decline accepting or retaining any traveler whose health or actions in ARAC’s sole judgment impede the operation of a trip or the welfare or enjoyment of fellow travelers.
