Leap VIP is a travel advice hub, providing you with information regarding travel opportunities including flights, insurance and volunteering projects known as “opportunities”. Any recommendations regarding “opportunities” on the site are for the purpose of information and guidance only and we refer you directly to them.
The contract begins on the date and time that you join and pay for Leap VIP. The Fee of £250 is non-refundable and covers a 12 month subscription. You can transfer your Leap VIP fee in full as a credit and deposit against any Leap program free of charge, which will be deducted from the cost of the program and can be transferred between different programs and dates so providing you with complete flexibility.
It is your responsibility to check the FCDO advice before you travel and if you choose to travel to a country on a UK red list or travel contrary to any FCDO travel advice that is at your own risk.
Awareness of Risk
We wish to make clear that travel may involve an element of risk; in particular, but not limited to, the risk of wild animals, forces of nature, accident through travel or transportation, in-country disruption of services by war or political unrest.
It is therefore important that you do your own research and risk assessment prior and during travel, accordingly Leap VIP cannot be held responsible for any such risks or have any legal responsibility/liability what so ever for any advice/information on this site.
You are responsible for your own actions and as such will take all relevant and necessary precautions in all activities, and accordingly you will need proper and comprehensive travel insurance cover in respect of these risks to be in place prior to travel. Including to comply with any local rules and/or laws including, but not limited to, dress and/or behaviour.
Any medical or health information is not intended to be nor is it to be regarded as an alternative to professional medical advice to a specific medical condition or enquiry. ALWAYS seek the advice of your doctor for any questions you may have regarding a medical condition or obligation before considering an “opportunity” or before travelling.
The copyright on this website belongs to Leap VIP. All intellectual property rights are reserved. You may not alter, duplicate, dispense, convey, display, execute, duplicate, circulate, certificate, plagiarise, transmit or trade any information obtained from this website.
Our liability based on the service we provide is as follows. You agree to these restrictions in full by reading and using this site. You agree that matters between Leap VIP and yourself will be governed by the use of English law.
As we only act as a referrer/introducer; you pay the individual or organization yourself providing the “opportunity”. Your contract will be with them (“opportunities”) and them only and they are fully liable for every aspect of their product that you buy, according to their own terms and conditions. So you need to check these in full before you book.
On this site there are many “opportunities” that allow you to book direct with the source and not necessarily via a travel agent or tour operator offering a package. As financial security bonding regulations differ in each country we highly recommend you ask how your money is protected directly with the organization/individual you are booking with, or take out personal travel insurance that covers the failure of the holiday provider. If you are buying your flight separately and not as part of a package then ensure that the company selling you the flight has the equivalent of a British ATOL bond.
Leap VIP do not accept any legal responsibility for or offer any assurance in any way for the competence or criteria of any of the “opportunities” that you are sold. Leap VIP is not liable in anyway for any failures by you to obtain and comply with the correct legal requirements prescribed by the country you are visiting. It is your responsibility to ensure that you comply with all legal requirements and local laws to enter, travel, live, holiday and work in any country you visit (for example by arranging appropriate visas). You must have sufficient medical insurance including medical repatriation. Leap VIP is not legally responsible or liable for any injury and/or damage to persons or property happening during or as a result of any “opportunities” taken as a result of enquiries made through this website.
