18. LIMITATION ON LIABILITY
The international carriage of passengers is subject to international conventions and treaties, where applicable. These international agreements limit and, in some events, exclude the carrier’s liability to passengers (trip participants). To the extent permitted by any relevant local law, where any claim or part of a claim (including those involving death or personal injury) concerns or involves any travel arrangements (including the process of getting on or off the transport concerned) provided by any air, sea, inland waterways, rail or road carrier, or any stay in a hotel, our maximum liability is the maximum that would be payable by the carrier or the hotel keeper concerned under the applicable international convention, treaty, or regulation applicable to the travel arrangements or hotel stay (e.g., the Warsaw Convention, the Montréal Convention for international travel by air, the EU Regulation on Air Carrier Liability for air carriers with an operating license granted by an EU country, the Athens Convention for international travel by sea) in that situation.
The trip participant agrees that Yosher Tours shall not be liable for any damage, loss (including personal injury, death, and property loss), or expense occasioned by any act or omission of any Supplier providing services, or any other person.
Air carriers, accommodations, and other Suppliers providing services are independent third-party contractors and are not agents, employees, servants, or joint ventures of Yosher Tours or its affiliates.
From time-to-time, and for the purpose of identifying those Suppliers as the provider of a component or part of a cruise, package or tour, some Suppliers may utilize Yosher Tours’s name on promotional media, signage, or attire. Although you may see Yosher Tours name on vehicles, signs, apparel, or elsewhere during your cruise, tour, or excursion, its use by Suppliers is solely for the purpose of identification and does not represent or signify in any way ownership, management, supervision, direction, or control, or the right to direct or control by Yosher Tours of services that are provided by the Suppliers, or of the employees, servants, or agents of the Suppliers.
All certificates and other Trip Documents for services issued by Yosher Tours are subject to the Terms & Conditions specified by any of our Suppliers, which are available upon request, and to the laws of the countries in which the services are supplied.
