What happens if I get sick or for personal reasons cannot join the trip?
We Drink Bubbles will not be liable for any injuries, illnesses, delayed flights, missed flight, late arrivals, stolen credit card numbers, lost luggage, any other crazy stuff that can happen to you when traveling internationally for the duration of the entire trip. If you would like to purchase third party travel insurance to cover these scenarios, we encourage you to do so.
