You’re only young once & now is the time to make every moment count. What better way to start than taking in the sights, history & culture of Europe & having a whole lot of fun along the way? Traveling in Winter, Autumn or Spring means you can escape the crowds & fully immerse yourself in the local flavor Europe has to offer. Life is there to be lived. Make sure you look back with #noregrets.

“ACTION EXPRESSES PRIORITIES” - Gandhi. It’s easy to believe in things, but much harder to live them. They’re not just words we say, they’re words we live by: Make every moment count. You only get one shot at life, but if you do it right, that’s all you’ll need. We’re about people, not things. It’s people’s individuality, diversity & a little bit of craziness that makes the world go round.

Life’s an adventure. Push yourself – you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve.

Do things with passion. Life isn’t just there to be lived; it’s there to be loved.

Be young and stay that way, no matter what your age. Always see the world through youthful eyes.

Tread lightly, respect our world & its inhabitants. Walk around the world, not over it.

Challenge everything. Disregard what seems impossible. Embrace change.

Be part of the story. Don’t sit on the sidelines – get involved & make your mark.

exclusive accommodations s Our trips in Autumn, Winter & Spring are all hotels, every single night – for comfort that our travelers love. And our Budget trips are a cool blend of hotels & hostels to keep things just as diverse as our awesome destinations. They’re more than just a place to unpack your bags & catch a quick nap, our accommodations are truly part of the Contiki experience. We even have our very own authentic Gasthof (traditional guest house) nestled amongst the hills of the Austrian Alps, which is exclusive to our Ski & Board Austria trips. It even includes our very own Contiki on-site team. It’s just another way that traveling with Contiki is all about making it count.

EXCLUSIVE FO FOOD O We’re a bunch of foodies, so we know how key it is to try those exciting new flavors when you travel. By night, experience the regional tastes you’ve come to try. From traditional goulash in Budapest, to mouthwatering pans of paella in Spain, our included dinners feature the best in regional cuisine served up by some of our favorite local European restaurants. And we include ALL breakfasts on our trips. Because let’s face it, that extra half hour should be spent sleeping, not looking for breakfast! And we don’t believe in our travelers cutting their day short for a tasteless generic snack, so we keep lunches free, so you can keep exploring & try what you want, when you want. See p.9 for more.

exclusive OPTIONS It’s your trip – and your time. That’s why with us you have the freedom to explore at your leisure, discover on your own, or just kick back & soak it all in. It’s called ME Time, and it’s all about you. From bungy jumping in the Swiss Alps, to catching an authentic Mozart concert in Vienna, we offer a ton of exclusive optional extras that are guaranteed to make your time, ME Time. Or if you would prefer to just sit back & soak up the scene, explore the streets or shop, then that’s cool too! See p.7 for some inspiration on what you could be getting up to.

company, and that’s nowhere near good enough for us. That’s why we challenge everything.

PASS TO EUROPE

ME Time = the freedom to do what you want, when you want. Freedom to choose, especially when you travel, is important & the only thing fixed on our trips is your next epic destination. We know our travelers have boxes they want to tick, so adrenaline junkies, people looking for a culture fix, foodies looking for inspiration or those just wanting to sit back or shop, will always get their fix. We’ve been around for over 53 years, and through our amazing connections throughout Europe, we’ve lined up an endless list of incredible experiences, with great prices you wouldn’t otherwise get without a friend in the know. From bobsledding or paragliding, to Italian cooking classes, the Moulin Rouge or gondola rides in Venice - our experiences are unique to the incredible destinations. It’s exactly what making it count is all about.

no compulsory tipping reward only excellence! Every country in the world has different tipping policies & in Europe, within service industries, tipping is common practice. Tipping is totally optional & only given if you feel the service has exceeded your expectations. If you think your Contiki Team have done an exceptional job then you may wish to tip them. This is entirely discretionary – it’s completely up to you. No compulsory tipping - reward only excellence!

Booking Security Contiki has been running trips for young people since 1962 & is a member of the United States Tour Operators Association (USTOA). USTOA includes all the major tour operators who are financially bonded for your security & who maintain the highest standards. Contiki is also a member of the National Tour Association (NTA) & the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA). With the guarantees of these organizations, you know your vacation & money are secure with Contiki.

Online check-in It is strongly recommended that you check in to your trip prior to departure at contiki.com/checkin. Checking in will save you time on your first day of the trip, give you essential information & also ensure that Contiki can contact you in the unlikely event of any changes to your trip due to matters out of our control. For more information on how to get more before & after your trip see contiki.com.

How much luggage can I bring? On our trips, luggage is restricted to a maximum suitcase size of 29” x 20” x 10” (73cm x 50cm x 25cm) & maximum weight of 44lbs (20 kg) plus one small hand/day bag that can go on the coach with you. Contiki reserves the right to refuse to accept larger & heavier suitcases on tour. On Budget trips you’ll need a towel, unless otherwise indicated. On Ski vacations you may bring one pair of ski boots & skis or a snowboard. Any luggage over the restricted size or amount can be stored with Contiki in London at a small charge. Baggage is carried at the owner’s risk & baggage insurance is strongly recommended.

Do I need visas? Please read carefully. Depending on your nationality, you may require visas to enter certain countries included in your trip. You are fully responsible for obtaining all necessary visas prior to the departure of your trip. Contiki is not legally permitted to knowingly allow anybody who does not have a valid visa to join a trip. Consult your travel agent to determine which visas you require & how to obtain them.

SCHENGEN VISAS The majority of our trips travel in countries that are covered by the Schengen Agreement which relates to visas. Citizens of many countries – eg. Australia, United States, Canada, New Zealand – can travel in the Schengen area without a visa. If you require a visa to enter the Schengen area you only need to obtain one visa which will allow you to travel in all Schengen countries. Schengen visas can be issued for single entry or multiple entries. If your trip travels outside of the Schengen area at any point you will require a multiple entry visa. The trips that require multiple entry Schengen visas are listed below: Spanish Spree, European Trail, Eastern Rocker, Trail to Rome, Trail to London.

VISAS FOR NON-SCHENGEN COUNTRIES Some of our trips also visit countries that are not covered by the Schengen Agreement. You may require visas for countries including the United Kingdom, Ireland, Egypt, Russia, Belarus & Turkey. Depending on your nationality it may be possible to obtain visas for Egypt upon arrival – you should check before you depart for your trip.

IMPORTANT 1. Visas can take up to six weeks & a fee is normally charged. 2. Failure to obtain all necessary visas could cause you to miss part of your trip & will result in you incurring considerable expense & inconvenience. 3. It is better to apply for all visas through your travel agent before you leave home. Your travel agent will contact Contiki for full details. 4. Contiki will provide you with visa contacts from our London base at the Royal National Hotel, if necessary.

Do I need vaccinations? At the time this brochure went to press (May, 2014), no vaccinations were necessary. However, it is wise to check up-to-date information with your travel agent prior to departure. Don’t forget to bring with you any medication that you may require en route, such as antihistamines, antibiotics.

TRAVEL INSURANCE Cancellation, unexpected medical expenses, injuries, theft, lost luggage or money can significantly disrupt & ruin your holiday. Contiki very strongly recommends that you take out comprehensive insurance cover for cancellation, medical expenses, evacuation & repatriation expenses, personal accident, personal baggage, money & public liability before you travel. In some instances, you may not be accepted on a Contiki holiday unless you have arranged satisfactory insurance. You also agree to indemnify us against all third-party claims, actions, damages & remedies against us arising from your participation in your holiday. For insurance details, please speak to your travel agent when you are booking your trip.

important information Security is a major concern to all of us and the situation globally is constantly changing. Events around the world, coupled with the “Travel Advisories“ put out by various governments, may at times necessitate changes to the accommodations and itinerary or even trip cancellation. Please refer to our Terms and Conditions for further information in this regard. You must accept these risks involved in travel to any country that may experience security difficulties and accept responsibility for your own travel decisions.

BOOKING

CONDITIONS COND

Once Contiki accepts your booking by confirmation thereof a contract is made between Contiki & you upon the terms & conditions set out below.

Our Responsibilities 1. YOUR VACATION RESERVATION On receipt of your deposit, subject to availability and at our discretion, Contiki will reserve your place on your selected vacation. A contract is only made between you and us upon your booking being confirmed and accepted by us and our communication thereof to either you or your travel agent. 2. PRICE GUARANTEE a) Tour Prices: Are based on costs, tariffs, taxes, charges, levies and exchange rates as of March 6th, 2014. Should these change, the price of your vacation may increase. If the total price increases by more than 10%, you may cancel, without penalty, within 3 DAYS after we notify you of the increase. Except as explained below, we will not increase the price of your land vacation after we receive your full deposit for your land vacation. In exchange for this guarantee, no refund will be made if the cost factors described above are reduced. We reserve the right to recover from any increases in cruise line imposed fuel surcharges and in taxes, charges or levies imposed by any government or its agencies. b) Airline Fuel Surcharges, Air-related Taxes, Fees & Restrictions, & Levies Imposed by any Government or its Agencies: As noted above, all quoted land and air prices include airline fuel surcharges and Air-Related Taxes and Fees, applicable as of March 6th, 2014. However, if the customer is notified of the potential for a price increase and we have received the customer’s written or verbal consent prior to accepting any payment, we reserve the right to recover from any increases in those surcharges. Any additional fees charged by the airlines, such as baggage handling, seat selections, and/or any other services are the sole responsibility of the passenger(s). Additional air-related restrictions apply. See www.contiki.com/restrictions for details. 3. IF WE CANCEL OR CHANGE YOUR VACATION 3.1 Contiki reserves the right to change or cancel any tour departure in accordance with operating requirements or circumstances beyond its control. 3.2 If a cancellation is made any time prior to the tour departure*, Contiki’s only liability will be to refund the passenger the amount it has received for the booking. Contiki will try and re-book the same or a similar tour and, where flights have been confirmed by Contiki, will attempt to confirm air seats for the new date selected, subject to availability. Contiki is not liable for any changes, amendment or cancellation penalties incurred on any other travel arrangements purchased separately. 3.3 If an alternative tour is not available or acceptable you will be entitled to either a full refund of monies paid by you to us or transfer to another Contiki vacation without payment of any transfer fee. *Please Note: The departure date constitutes the date indicated on Contiki’s invoice. If you do not join the tour on the day of departure then cancellation fees will be 100%. 3.4 If the change or cancellation is due to force majeure (i.e. circumstances like political unrest, war or threat of war, riots, civil strife, closure of airports or ports, industrial disputes, terrorist activity, natural and nuclear disasters, fire, epidemic or health risk, Acts of God, adverse weather conditions or other similar events beyond Contiki’s control) we will give a full refund of any monies paid to us less reasonable expenses incurred by us in respect of your booking. 3.5 Contiki is not responsible for the costs of any other travel arrangements affected due to our cancellations or rescheduling of any tour departure. 4. VACATION DETAILS AND CONDITIONS 4.1 The information in our brochure is correct to the best of our knowledge at the time of going to print (May, 2014) but we cannot guarantee that any item or amenity mentioned will be available, especially where we have no direct control over it. 4.2 With respect to Contiki’s touring program Contiki will do our best, at our discretion, to select accommodations, sightseeing tours and transportation to give you good value for your money. 4.3 Contiki constantly strives to improve tour itineraries and features. If such improvements can be made, or unforeseen circumstances beyond our control make changes necessary, we reserve the right to vary itineraries and to substitute hotels. Contiki is not responsible for any other travel arrangements affected due to our cancellations. 4.4 Any special meal requirements will be made on a request basis only. Contiki cannot guarantee special meal requests nor will assume any responsibility or liability if clients special meal requests are not fulfilled. 5. LIABILITY 5.1 Contiki is responsible for properly arranging and conducting your vacation. 5.2 As a Tour Operator, Contiki makes arrangements with carriers, hoteliers and other independent suppliers to provide you with some or all of the travel services you purchase. These parties are independent suppliers over whom Contiki has no direct control. Unless caused by its own negligence, Contiki is not responsible for and accepts no liability in respect of any claims, losses, damages, costs or expenses arising out of: a) personal injury, sickness, disease, accident or death, however caused, including without limitation, where same results from your conduct on vacation. b) loss or damage to or delay of baggage or other property unless resulting from Contiki’s negligence in which case Contiki’s liability shall be limited to the actual loss but in no event would exceed the total vacation cost; c) delays and loss as a result of government action, weather, mechanical breakdown, equipment failure, labor disputes, sickness, acts of war, insurrection, terrorism, Acts of God or any other causes beyond Contiki’s direct control. Contiki cannot be responsible for interruption of air carrier service due to airline default. d) acts or omissions, whether negligent or otherwise, of suppliers of services or their personnel (including, without limitation, transportation and accommodation services) or of any other person or body unless such a person or body is employed by us, or is an agent of ours, and is acting within the scope of his or her authority. In no event is Contiki liable for the acts or omissions of independent third party contractors or of its own employees or agents acting outside the scope of their duties. e) loss of enjoyment, upset, disappointment, distress or frustration, whether physical or mental, resulting from any of the following: (i) any matter or topic described in sub-paragraphs (a) to (d) inclusive above. (ii) your failure to obtain the necessary documentation to travel. (iii) your failure to arrive on time for initial departure or for connections within the tour or to stay within or join your tour at any time after initial departure. (iv) your leaving the tour prior to its completion. (v) the need for Contiki to change itineraries or substitute accommodations or services, provided that Contiki makes every effort to supply the most comparable services and accommodations available. (vi) cancellation of the vacation by Contiki provided that a full refund of all monies paid is made to you. (vii) Many of our activities are action and adventure orientated. Sports and similar activities inherently involve risks of injury greater than those that would be encountered if you were not participating in such, and therefore, by voluntarily taking part in any sports or other such activities, you thereby acknowledge and assume any of the risks inherent therein. In the absence of negligence on our part, or on the part of our agents and representatives, neither we nor they accept any responsibility for, and shall not be liable for, any injury, illness, damage, loss, accident, expense, delay or any other irregularity resulting from your participation in any of the activities made available to you. (viii) We take every reasonable precaution possible to assure your comfort, safety, and enjoyment while you are taking part in a Contiki vacation. Contiki vacations are generally for the young, and not for the frail or those not generally enjoying good health. A change of climate, food, time and varied cultural habits often affects travelers differently. We therefore recommend that you advise your doctor that you are taking one of our vacations and

26-27 Q+A_Cond's USD.indd 3

ask if he or she recommends anything for your trip, even for something as seemingly benign as an upset stomach. Since the brands of any medication to which you are accustomed may be unavailable in places to which you are traveling, we recommend you bring your own supply of any medication you will require and carry such medication in your hand luggage. Prescription drugs should be carried in the original labeled bottles. Should you fall ill during your Contiki vacation, we will make every reasonable effort to make prompt, sanitary, safe and proper medical care available to you. However, if at anytime or anywhere treatments of any sort are suggested to you that do not meet your needs or expectations, you should not hesitate to contact your own doctor. Also, please note that the same sorts of activities that can expose you to certain types of diseases at home can just as easily expose you to those same diseases abroad. This information is provided only for your convenience and we are not responsible or liable for any damages resulting from your failure to confirm or ascertain health information or medical precaution, if any, for the places which you will be visiting. (ix) Contiki is responsible for taking care to arrange and conduct your vacation properly. With you in mind, we have accepted applications from and interviewed numerous potential employees, and then we select only those people whom we believe in our best judgement would be responsible and congenial, Tour Managers, Representatives and Drivers. Although we firmly believe, based on personal interviews and certain disclosures made to us by our employees, that all of our employees enjoy excellent health, we, like other tour operators, are legally unable to confirm this in most, if not all, instances. YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES 1. BOOKING YOUR VACATION 1.1 In order to reserve your vacation, a deposit of US$200, per person per tour, or the full amount payable if booking is made within 45 days of departure, must be submitted to Contiki by you in respect of that vacation. This payment is in addition to any deposit required by your travel agent. The deposit is accepted as a first installment of the vacation price by Contiki only once the booking has been confirmed in writing by Contiki or your travel agent. If paying by a third-party credit card your Contiki specialist will provide you a third-party authorization form that must be completely filled out and received by Contiki before payment can be received. 1.2 Your land reservation will be confirmed on receipt of a non-transferable, non-refundable deposit of US$200 per person for the first tour booked and then a deposit of US$200 for second and subsequent tours booked at the time of booking or the reservation will automatically be cancelled. 1.3 To reserve your airfare, a non-refundable and non-transferable deposit of US$350 per person is required at time of booking. Once your airfare is confirmed and Contiki has received your air and land deposit, your airinclusive price is guaranteed. Contiki reserves the right to issue your ticket based upon receipt of your land and air deposit. Any subsequent changes and/or revisions to your airline reservation after receipt of your deposit is subject to revision fees and/or airline-imposed change or cancellation fees. These fees are a minimum of $350, and in some instances may be up to 100% of the ticket price. 2. PAYING THE BALANCE 2.1 The balance of the vacation price must be paid by no later than 45 days before your scheduled vacation departure date which shall be by the due date stated on the confirmation issued to you by Contiki. 2.2 Air Payment: Payment in full for your airfare booked in conjunction with your Contiki vacation may be required at time of booking. The Department of Transportation now requires Contiki to inform you of the following conditions. The package price is subject to change until it has been paid in full. When this happens, it is usually the result of increases in fuel surcharges and or government taxes. You must consent to the possibility that, until you pay for your package in full, your price could go up. Once you have paid in full we would only pass along increases in government taxes if applicable at that time. You have 7 days from receipt of the first invoice to revoke your consent and request a refund, at which time we would cancel your booking. 2.3 If payment isn’t made by the due date, Contiki may assume that you have cancelled and cancellation charges in accordance with clause 3 below will be levied by Contiki. 2.4 Tickets and other documents won’t be forwarded until full payment has been received by Contiki. 2.5 In the case of Late Bookings made within 45 days of your departure, the full cost of the vacation will be payable immediately on booking. Documents can be emailed to the passenger at no additional charge or passenger can pay a $35.00 expedited shipping fee for physical documents. 2.6 Contiki reserves the right to cancel the booking and apply cancellation charges should payments not be received within the above specified periods. 2.7 Travel documents will be sent to you approximately 21 days prior to tour departure* (providing full payment has been received). However, if travel documents are required the next day or earlier than 21 days prior to departure* (providing full payment has been received), a fee of $35 per mailing will apply. Bookings made and/or payments received within 30 days of departure* incur a $35 per mailing document delivery fee. Any documents delivered outside the USA will incur a minimum fee of $50. The actual cost will be advised at time of booking. 3. IF YOU CANCEL 3.1 If notice of cancellation is received by Contiki 46 days or more prior to tour departure*, the non-refundable, non-transferable deposit will be retained along with the Travel Protection. 3.2 Notice of cancellation must be made in writing directly to Contiki. 3.3 The following scale of charges will apply when notice of cancellation, is given after booking is confirmed: COACH TOURS (LAND ONLY) No. of days prior to Cancellation Fee tour departure* as a % of the total land price.

All cancellation policies valid as at 23rd May 2014 and are subject to change. Final policy will be confirmed at time of booking. 3.6 Please note that Contiki is not liable for any cancellation penalties incurred on any other travel arrangements including air tickets purchased separately from the air and land included package.

* Please note: the departure date constitutes the date indicated on Contiki’s confirmation 4. IF YOU CHANGE YOUR BOOKING 4.1 If after your booking has been confirmed, you wish to change to an alternative departure date or you wish to change to a different Contiki vacation, you may do so subject to availability and provided the new vacation date is also in this brochure. 4.2 A fee of US$30 per person will be charged for any revision or alteration made to a reservation after the booking is confirmed. Any alterations risk the loss of air space or increased airfares. Name changes or corrections will be treated as a cancellation of air and all normal air cancellation fees will apply. A change of tour date or tour itinerary within 45 days of tour departure will be treated as a cancellation, and normal cancellation fees will apply except when the change is to an earlier departure date of equivalent or greater value in which case a US$30 per person amendment fee will be charged. 5. VACATION DETAILS AND CONDITIONS 5.1 Please read the brochure carefully for those items included in the price. No allowance or refund can be made for meals, accommodations, excursions, etc. that you elect not to take, or when museums, shops, etc are closed. Hotel facilities may vary from place to place. Meals may vary in style. 5.2 Contiki’s vacations are specifically planned for those in the 18-35 age group. Consequently the facilities and activities on a Contiki tour are not appropriate to persons outside this age bracket. If you have a question regarding the age groups, you should discuss this thoroughly with Contiki staff personnel. 5.3 Contiki strives to provide a safe, enjoyable and memorable travel experience for all passengers. Contiki welcomes passengers with special needs or disabilities. However, please note the following: • Passengers are required to advise Contiki, in advance, of any physical, medical or other special needs that require accommodation. A special needs form must be completed prior to final payment. • All guests must ensure they are medically and physically fit for travel. Contiki may impose safety requirements necessary for the safe operation of the tour. Contiki may also exclude an individual from participating in a tour or an activity if that individual’s participation poses a direct threat to health or safety. • Contiki does not provide personal devices (such as wheelchairs, hearing aids or prescription eye glasses) or services of a personal nature (such as pushing a wheelchair or assistance in eating, toileting or dressing). A companion capable of providing such assistance must accompany any passenger who requires services of a personal nature. • Contiki does not employ medical personnel. Any necessary medical attention will be provided by a local facility at the passenger’s expense. Contiki is not responsible or liable for any losses or costs incurred as a result of medical services obtained while on tour, or for the quality of the care or services received. • Passengers should be aware some tours include rough terrain, extensive walking over cobblestone streets, uneven pavement, steps and locations which may not be easily accessible or accessible by wheelchair. During the tour, Contiki may make arrangements with carriers, hotels and other independent suppliers to provide travel services. These parties are independent entities over which Contiki has no control. Accommodations on international tours may differ from those in the United States. Contiki cannot guarantee disability access or accommodations for passengers traveling on international tours. • Contiki may, in its sole discretion, decline the booking of any passenger or remove any passenger who cannot comply or refuses to comply with Contiki’s terms and conditions. Contiki is not responsible for any costs incurred in the event a passenger is removed from a tour. Passengers agree not to hold Contiki or any of its related entities liable for any actions taken under these terms and conditions. 5.4 You are responsible for all travel arrangements and costs to/from the point of commencement/conclusion of the vacation. 5.5 There may be times when the Contiki Tour Manager or Representative has to make a decision in your best interest or the best interests of their group. You agree to comply with the authority and decisions of the appointed Contiki Tour Manager or Representative and the laws of the country in which you are traveling. If you do not so comply or if, in the Contiki Tour Manager’s or Representative’s opinion, you are not compatible with the general enjoyment and well-being of other members on the tour or the smooth operation of the vacation itself, we reserve the right to refuse to let you continue with the tour. We do not tolerate the possession or carriage of illegal or restricted substances (drugs). Furthermore, you agree that your fellow travelers and any Contiki Representatives have the right to travel/work in a safe environment. Any threats to their safety, well-being or inappropriate behavior by you, whether verbal or physical, will be taken extremely seriously and may result in the immediate termination of your vacation. In either event, you will be responsible for your own repatriation and related costs and have no claims against us. 5.5.1 You are responsible for any costs incurred as a result of damage or excess cleaning fees related to your accommodations. You are advised to immediately report any pre-existing damage in your room to hotel staff and/ or a Contiki Tour Manager as soon as it is discovered. 5.6 Where the passenger occupies a motorcoach seat fitted with a safety belt, neither the operator or service providers, agents or co-operating organizations shall be liable for any illness, injury or death or any loss or damages or claims whatsoever arising from any accident or incident, if the safety belt is not being worn at the time of the accident or incident. 5.7 It is your responsibility to have a valid passport and all visas, permits and certificates required for your selected vacation before your departure as well as any necessary vaccinations and to comply with all applicable laws. Contiki is not responsible for any costs incurred as a result of failing to obtain necessary visas. Any costs whatsoever regarding obtaining, replacing or changing visas while on tour (including accommodations, meals, flights and transfers incurred due to associated delays) are at your own expense. 5.8 You agree that our Contiki Tour Managers or Representatives may take photographs and films of you while you are on vacation and that these may be used in our Group brochures and/or advertising or publicity material without obtaining any further consent or payment in respect of such photographs and/or films. 5.9 Should you have a complaint in respect of the vacation, you should inform the Contiki Representative during the course of the vacation and if the matter cannot be resolved after the representative’s best endeavors to do so during the vacation, your complaint should be made in writing to Contiki as soon as is reasonably possible after the vacation but within 42 days thereof so that your complaint can be investigated. Email complaints to USCustomerService@Contiki.com. Any claims made after the 42 day period will not be considered by Contiki. If you choose to write to Contiki via the Internet, please provide your home address so that we are able to reply to you in writing. 5.10.1 The agreement arising between the passenger and the Operators under this brochure and the booking made by the passenger shall be governed by the law of the State of California, County of Orange, which shall have exclusive jurisdiction in the case of any dispute between the parties. 5.10.2 If any provision of this contract is held invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, that provision shall be deemed to be re-written to give effect to the same purpose within the permitted limits of the law. The validity and enforceability of the other provisions shall not be affected. 5.10.3 If you are unsuccessful in any legal action instituted against us, you agree to pay all our costs, including but not limited to, attorney/client costs.

6. INSURANCE Contiki very strongly recommends you take out comprehensive insurance cover for cancellation, personal injury, death, medical expenses, repatriation expenses and evacuation expenses before your travel on a Contiki vacation. We strongly recommend your insurance also covers cancellation, personal liability, and loss of personal property. Please check that your insurance covers all of the activities that you are going to be participating in. Some policies exclude certain adventure activities. This should be arranged at the time of payment at the time of deposit and will, in certain circumstances, cover you against loss of deposit or cancellation fees from the date of confirmation of your booking, as shown in the insurance policy. Contiki cannot be held responsible for your failure to take out appropriate insurance. You also agree to indemnify us against all third-party claims, actions, damages and remedies which may be brought against us in respect of your participation in the vacation. With the insurance of BerkelyCare we are able to offer comprehensive travel insurance at group discount rates (see details on page 26). If you wish to have this valuable protection, please advise your Travel Agent to request the insurance and to include the cost of insurance when sending in your vacation deposit. Please note there will be no travel insurance provided unless you request it from your Travel Agent and the payment is forwarded to Contiki. Complete details of the coverage limitations and exclusions are included with your vacation invoice. 7. ILLNESS OR ABSENTEEISM In the event of your withdrawal from a vacation after the commencement as a result of illness, you must obtain a medical certificate in support of any insurance claim. No refunds will be made for any absence from the tour. 8.
