No representation or description of the insurance made by Sky Bird Travel constitutes a binding assurance or promise about the insurance. You agree to hold Sky Bird Travel harmless for your election not to purchase travel insurance or for any denial of claim by travel insurer as it relates to COVID-19 or any other claim under the policy.
