Grassroots Journeys is purely a directory. We display details of suppliers and providers from the travel, not-for-profit, and retail industries. They are responsible for their content. You deal with them, and you travel at your own risk.
When you access grassrootsjourneys.com (‘this Website’), or use any service offered by us on it (‘the service’) you are accepting the terms of the following disclaimer. They apply to you, ‘the user’, except if your use of the website and the service qualifies you as ‘a supplier’, in which case you are subject to our ‘Terms of Business’. A supplier is any individual, company and/or organisation using the website and its services for commercial reasons, as a displayer and/or purchaser of listings, advertising and/or sponsorship.
It is important to understand the limitations of our service, and the limitations of our liability.
The objective of this website is solely to provide access to information about destinations, tour operators, accommodation providers and other services available around the world, which display a commitment to the principles and practices of “responsible tourism.”
We do not attempt to sell or resell anything to you. Any dealings between you and any supplier found on or via this Website, including the payment for, and delivery of, products or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and the relevant supplier, and are done so at your own risk.
We do not warrant the quality and standard of any of the holidays, products or services sold by any of our suppliers. You agree not to hold us responsible or liable for any inconveniences, financial losses of any kind, injury and/or damages of any kind to persons or property arising from any dealings with any supplier. We expressly disclaim any responsibility or liability for any damage, loss or injury arising at any time out of:
• the activities of any supplier, including but not limited to mal-practice, negligence or otherwise
• the products or services offered by a supplier
• information given by any supplier, either through this website or otherwise, regarding their products and services
• the purchase of, or inability to purchase, any supplier’s products or services
• The terms and conditions of the supplier(s) of your confirmed arrangements will apply to your booking. These terms and conditions may limit and/or exclude the merchant’s liability to you. It is your responsibility to check these prior to entering into any agreement.
Involvement in travel and community tourism carries a risk of damage to property, personal injury or death. You should be sure about all risks involved, and always assume full personal responsibility for this risk. You are strongly recommended to take out personal travel insurance and we recommend that every member of your party does so. Some merchants require that you do so. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance you purchase is adequate and appropriate for your particular needs.
We do not accept or assume any responsibility or liability for accidents, injuries or even death occurred while taking part in any extreme or adventure sports, whether or not this participation is connected in any way to the use of this website, its information and/or services, and/or to a supplier that is in any way connected with this website, its information and/or services.
We strongly advise you to enquire about how your money is protected directly with the company you are booking with, or take out personal travel insurance that covers the failure of the holiday provider.
