We highly recommend that you buy extended hospital/medical/dental insurance to supplement your existing health insurance or benefits plan. Should you choose not to purchase such extended coverage, all costs and expenses relating to any hospital/medical/dental care or treatment shall be your sole responsibility.
The registrant takes full responsibility for being fully able to participate in the daily activities foreseen in the itinerary, noting that many sightseeing areas require quite a bit of walking. LWT assumes no responsibility for the registrant's ability to fully participate in the tour. By making a payment towards LWT, you certify that you do not have any physical condition of disability that would create a hazard for you or other clients, and that you understand that the health care standards of the visiting country may be different, such as hospital availability. Some facilities, on LWT tours, do not have elevators or related services with which to gain access and will not be accessible to some clients.
Foreign Currency Exchange Rates
All tours are quoted in Euro.
It is agreed that in the event of any dispute over the interpretation, application or performance of the travel agreement, the forum will be in Lecco, Italy.
LWT is not responsible or liable in any way for any damage or loss (including property stolen, lost or damaged), accidents, injuries, or delays occurred during the tour. Neither will LWT be held responsible for any default or act caused by its suppliers and/or their employees. LWT reserves the right to change the routes, accommodations, transportation, meals and other travel services at any time without prior notice. It is understood that reasonable efforts will be made to find equivalent services in interest and value. Although LWT makes every effort to ensure the agents we have chosen are responsible agents, we are unable, and do not have, control over them, and therefore cannot be responsible for their acts or omissions. The client agrees not to bring or maintain any legal action against LWT, our employees or agents or independent contractors in respect of any such injury, loss or damage and release them from any such liability and any liability in respect of claims made against the client as a result of the client's actions on a tour. LWT can refuse passage on the tour to anyone that LWT considers unfit or whose behavior becomes a nuisance for the participating travelers and/or the hosts. LWT will never be held responsible, in any way, for death, accidents or illness of the traveler, nor for political and/or civil unrest, strikes, acts of God or any other act or cause beyond LWT's control. In all events, LWT shall not be liable for any consequential damages and the sole extend of LWT liability shall never exceed the amount actually paid by the guest to LWT.
Lombardy Wine Tours cancellation
We reserve the right to cancel any tour at any time for any reason, such as if there are too few participants (minimum of 6), if the safety of our guests is in question, or the quality of our tour is in question, or for any other reason. If this happens, we will attempt to notify you at least 90 days before departure. All deposits and tour price payments will be refunded.
