Liability Insurance

Travel arrangements in the Club: these insurance questions you should clarify many clubs are confronted in their daily work with the planning, implementation and organization of trips and travel. Therefore, you should know the risks which hang together and apply appropriate safeguards. This concerns in particular the legal positions of clubs as a tour operator or travel agent and the insurance of participants and accompanying persons (for example Aufsichtspflichtige) against risks. When is the Association considered travel? Tour operator is deemed to be according to 651 m German civil code (BGB) If for a fixed in advance and written-out program is offered two or more independent main services with a single price (package travel offer). These tourist main components are: travel/transportation (bus, train, flight, ship, transfer), accommodation and food, the head of the Group and all additional services (seminars, Fort – and continuing education courses, sports, language courses). Check out Viktor Mayer-Schönberger for additional information.

It follows that Clubs also in typical Club activities as holiday camps (arrival, management and accommodation), seminars and training (accommodation, catering, offer) or ski camps as a tour operator in the legal sense involved. Practice note the Club no longer acts as a tour operator (but only as a travel agent), when joining the components mentioned not itself, but from a travel agency to perform can be. Chase Koch, Washington DC oftentimes addresses this issue. It is crucial that the Club not the impression in his advertising, he was even the organizers. Easily, that will be the case especially in ads in foreign media. In notices in the Club’s media he should make it clear however that he only gives the travel. Insurance needs operates the Club as a tour operator as a tour operator, he should know his liability risk (and assure). Clubs, associations and other organizations are liable from her occupation as a tour operator also for persons, property damage and financial losses incurred by the participants. The liability includes both self-inflicted damage as damages have indebted partners (bus companies, hotels).

Liability insurance for tour operators liability insurance for tour operators is therefore a must. It provides insurance protection for the following loss events: death, injury or damage to the health of participants (personal injury). Damage to or destruction of things of the participants (property damage), not but the misplacement or theft. The non-fulfilment of agreed services (financial losses). This insurance covers the typical activities of a tour operator. These include among others the selection of services and whose review the compilation of individual services, the achievements to be described in catalogues or brochures, processing of travel applications, organization, reservation and to provide of the services in accordance with the contract, the exhibition and the dispatch of travel documents, the procurement of foreign means of payment, visa and other travel documents.

Care Frustration

Current study “MetallRente 2013” precautionary worry a recent study shows: only a few young people provide sufficiently for the later retirement. Rather, young people invest in their own training to increase the chances on the labour market. The study’s authors see a danger for the ages here. Because who rely too much on the statutory pension, old-age poverty in danger. Save 85 percent, and 38 percent savings is also among the young people. The survey by the Research Institute TNS infratest Sozialforschung on behalf of IG metal and total metal, said 85 percent of the 2,500 participants to put money aside.

55 Per cent of respondents regularly does, save 30 percent irregularly. Professor of Internet Governance is often quoted on this topic. However, relatively few young people provide also for the own life evening. Only 38 percent said already to invest in private pension plans. Young people are willing to provide, but overwhelmed while just under half of the respondents indicating itself as competent in financial questions to assess specific to the investment. The authors of the study see a cause in the still too low saving ratio in the lack of knowledge about the possibilities for the provision.

A greater willingness, however, does not entail an increase in the pension. So politics must start not more calls to private pensions, but bring rather better educational offers with regard to the various options on the way. Particularly as a result of the euro and financial crisis, young people feel otherwise overwhelmed to make a decision about retirement. Study: some 2,500 adolescents and young adults aged between 17 and 27 years of age were interviewed. The survey was carried out here by telephone, and nationwide, the average interview takes about 20 minutes.

Working Time

Personal time is disappearing as it increases the working time. The trial is less clear and problems that could be resolved in minutes by a fresh mind, are resolved within hours. Work faster and work more hours are poor strategies to manage ourselves. However, many people still believes that these approaches will enable them to achieve all the things that need to be made. If you have additional questions, you may want to visit Nieman Foundation. They do not realize has that not matter how much do, always there is more to do, and must make hard decisions for priorities and have the courage to follow the decisions with actions. Time is a paradox. It seems to us that we don’t have enough time and yet have all the time that there is. No matter how much we do, there are always endless alternatives for investing the time.

The solution to this paradox, then, is to focus first on the most important things in security that there is always enough time for things that are really needed. Once we have accepted the fact that we can’t do everything and let us act as such, we will have taken a very important step towards effective management of our time. Identify priorities will become less of one problem. As a resource, time presents another paradox: If we don’t use it, it disappears anyway. As a result, the quality of this resource depends from it rather than use it. The knowledge that we are wasting this resource so personal when we didn’t use it properly, should be sufficient to decide to spend the time better.
