We act solely as agents for these suppliers and exercise no direct control over these independent parties.


Mariah Travel is not liable for any claims, losses, damages, costs, expenses, delays or loss of enjoyment of any kind, to you or your group members, resulting from the acts, omissions or negligence of anyone other than Mariah Travel acting properly on your behalf.
