Waivers are complex and may vary per country. That is why waivers are normally put together by a lawyer. Here we will not discuss what to put in the waiver, but we will show you several options when looking for a lawyer:
You can have your customers sign the waiver on paper or have them sign digitally. Within Viking management software it is possible to setup waivers and have your customers sign them.

Go to ‘Settings > Waivers’ and click ‘+ Add waiver’. Choose a title and add the text with styling in the textbox. Now you can add one or multiple checkboxes that customers have to click to accept the waiver. Save everything and voila!
If you only have 1 default waiver, go to ‘Settings .> Booking’ and find the dropdown ‘Default Waiver’. Make sure that your waiver is selected here, this way it will be added to all your products. It is possible to make different waivers for different products, in this case you have to set the waiver in the product settings (Settings > Products > select product).
