Acknowledgment of Risk: Travelling during the Covid-19 Pandemic

Updated 14/05/2021

This is an important legal document. You should read it carefully and may wish to take advice before you sign it. It will affect your legal rights and forms part of the contract between you and us (Grasmere Travel Ltd)

I confirm that I have read and understood the advice given by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) in relation to travel to your destination.

I understand and accept that:

  1. the FCDO advises against all travel or all but essential travel to my chosen destination/s due to the risk of contracting COVID-19; the latest travel advice from the UK government in relation to your chosen destination can be found here: www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice and https://travelaware.campaign.gov.uk;
  2. in traveling to my chosen destination/s I am doing so against the advice of the FCDO;
  3. the tour operator, Grasmere Travel Ltd has advised me of this and also advised me not to travel to my chosen destination/s;
  4. in doing so I am thereby voluntarily taking an increased risk that I may suffer death or injury or other loss, physical or otherwise due to the presence of or exposure to coronavirus disease (COVID-19), severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), or any mutation or variation thereof;
  5. if I, or others with whom I am travelling or come into close contact contract COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2 or any other mutation or variation thereof, I may be subject to quarantine, and/or repatriation;
  6. I have purchased specialist travel insurance which includes cover for certain Covid-19 related issues or incidents which may affect my travel arrangements, and I have read and accept the insurance policy wording and understand what you are and are not covered for;
  7. in travelling to my chosen destination/s any personal travel insurance that I have purchased may not cover me or the terms of cover may be reduced;
  8. I shall comply with all rules, regulations, laws and requirements imposed on you, whether by governmental or regulatory authorities, suppliers, airports or ports, in relation to Covid-19, including (but not limited to) any requirement on you to self-isolate, whether in destination or upon your return to the United Kingdom; to submit to a Covid-19 test (including temperature testing or a swab test); or to provide contact details for the purposes of track and trace;  

In the event that I do suffer death or injury or other loss, physical or otherwise due to the presence of or exposure to coronavirus disease (COVID-19), severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), or any mutation or variation thereof I agree that Grasmere Travel Ltd shall have no liability to me in respect of such death, injury or other loss and agree that I shall hold Grasmere Travel Ltd harmless in respect of such death, injury, loss or damage and indemnify hold Grasmere Travel Ltd in respect of any costs or losses it suffers as a result.

Where you make a booking to a destination subject to the FCDO advisory against all travel or non-essential travel, you accept that once your booking has been confirmed, if you decide that you do not want not to travel due to the FCDO advisory and you wish to cancel your booking with us, your cancellation charge will be 100% of your deposit amount. 

Where, at the time of booking, your chosen destination is exempt from the FCDO advisory against all travel or non-essential travel, you acknowledge that this may change with very little or no notice, and if it does, and you do not want not to travel due to the FCDO advisory, your cancellation charge will be 100% of your deposit amount.  If however the destination country goes from a green or amber list country at the time of booking to a red list country we will refund you 100% of the booking. You may also be able to postpone the holiday to a later date. We will notify you of any impact on the price the postponement may have.

Please note that nothing in this Acknowledgement limits or excludes your statutory rights. In the event that we are prevented from performing your holiday contract due to Covid-19, for example if the destination goes into lockdown and we are no longer able to provide your holiday, we will comply with our obligations as a package organiser under the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018.

I confirm that I am authorised to accept this Acknowledgment of Risk on behalf of myself and all travellers named on my booking. 

I understand and agree that this document forms part of the contract between me and Grasmere Travel Ltd and that this document overrides and supersedes any clause to the contrary contained within the tour operator’s booking conditions.
