Travel

The participant is responsible for arranging and paying for his/her travel to the destination country. This includes airfare and/or other transportation costs to and from the destination country as well as all local transportation costs.

It is the participant’s responsibility to carry the necessary documents when traveling internationally (e.g. valid passport). Maximo Nivel may advise the participant on required travel documents, but Maximo Nivel is not responsible for ensuring the participant’s travel documents are in proper order to travel. Participants are solely responsible for ensuring their travel documents are up to date and valid for their planned travel.

Insurance

Maximo Nivel does not provide participants with insurance of any kind. Travel insurance is strongly recommended for each participant and participants should purchase this prior to departing on their trip. The participant is responsible for evaluating and determining the kind of insurance coverage he/she should have.

Personal Risk

The participant acknowledges and accepts the responsibilities and risks that international travel, international work/study, and international volunteer programs include. These risks increase because Maximo Nivel’s programs take place in developing countries. The participant fully and solely accepts these risks as an inherent part of their planned travel.

The participant assumes all liability and responsibility for any eventuality that may occur, including personal injury, emotional distress, death, and/or loss or damage to personal property. Furthermore, the participant agrees to hold harmless Maximo Nivel, its partner
