Waiver, Release of Liability & Assumption of Risk: I am aware that travel (whether in civilized or remote areas and regardless of the transportation conveyance) and participation, particularly in adventure activities that may be planned on this trip (such as, but not limited to kayaking, snorkeling, swimming) contain inherent risks of illness (including, but not limited to malaria), injury (including, but not limited to those caused or contributed to by auto and or boating accident and the inadequacy and/or absence of safety devices, such as seat belts or floatation devices), emotional trauma, and/or death, which may be caused by negligence, forces of nature, or other agencies known or unknown. I recognize that such risks may be present at anytime before, during and after the trip that I am participating in with Integral Travel.
I am also aware that adequate medical services or facilities may not be readily available or accessible during some or all of the time in which I am participating in the trip, and that evacuation, if necessary, and if available, can be prolonged, difficult and expensive.
I am also aware that in developing nations such as Thailand, the level of infrastructural development, sense of urgency, communication skills, attention to detail, quality standards, hygiene, political stability, cuisine, sanitation facilities, cleanliness, and business practices, among other things, may be deemed far inferior to those found in most industrialized nations. Further, I am aware and accept that travel to such areas involves these and other elements of risk above and beyond those that would normally be encountered in industrialized nations.
If applicable, as a participant in a group tour, I am aware that group travel requires compromise to accommodate varying personalities, wants, abilities and objectives of group members. I understand and accept that my personal desires notwithstanding, my tour leader may be required, based on his or her experience and upon the wishes of the group members, to improvise and exercise his or her judgment and/or make good-faith decisions concerning the management of the program. I agree further to abide by any such decisions.
I understand that due to the nature of the destinations to which we are going, and the necessary long lead times required to organize such tours, situations such as the following can and might be expected to occur: changes in the trip leader assignments; changes in the sequence or timing of the itinerary; and/or changes in accommodations or transport. I understand further that due to the above-stated reasons Integral Travel cannot guarantee exact adherence to any itinerary that has been provided. I accept that if any of the aforementioned situations arise either before or during my trip, Integral Travel may be required to make decisions to address the changed circumstances and that it may not be possible to provide me with advanced notification. I agree to release Integral Travel from any and all liability whatsoever in connection with such decisions, provided that they are made in good faith and do not substantially or significantly adversely affect the overall content or quality of the tour package.

My rights arising from or in any way relating to contracts of travel and/or passage shall be based upon the form of the contract utilized by each transportation company as represented by their ticketing or other documentation supplied as part of the tour.
