RETREAT REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY
In order to secure your spot at one of our retreats, you need to pay a non-refundable deposit or percentage amount as stipulated for each retreat on our website, plus minimal processing fees. You can pay your deposit through our fully secure online payment systems.
It is preferred that you pay the remaining balance in cash once you arrive to the site of the retreat. However at times we may offer other methods of payment for your balance (contact us via email). Notice that it will NOT be possible to pay onsite by card, as our retreats may be taking place in secluded areas, and there is no facility for card payment or guaranteed internet coverage.
Refund and Cancellation Policy
HOLD DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.
Deposit payments are non-refundable. Please note that there will be no refunds or discounts for arriving late, leaving early, flight cancellations, travel delays or illness or Force Majeure. If you have to cancel your participation in a retreat for any reason, we can not refund your deposit, but you can transfer it to the same retreat/training within a period of 12 months from the deposit date, if there is availability and a pending scheduling. We wish we could compensate people for unforeseen circumstances (injury, family emergency, force majeure, natural disaster, etc), but we have costs already incurred when reserving retreat centre and accommodations. To protect yourself further, we strongly encourage you to purchase travel insurance.
Any other payment made at anytime becomes non-refundable 180 days prior to the start of a retreat.
**Please note minimum numbers are required to run any SpiritRivers retreat. These minimum numbers are usually set to 6 persons unless specifically outlined in the retreat presentation. Should the numbers not be reached by the cut off date of one week PRIOR to the starting date, the retreat will be postponed and deposits transferred to the same retreat/training to a later date if there is availability and a pending scheduling. Deposits are NON REFUNDABLE whether minimum numbers are met or not.
Please ensure you have adequate TRAVEL INSURANCE cover!. In the case of government lockdowns whereby you are not allowed by law to travel to the retreat location, it is our understanding that an insurance cover can provide a full refund.
**PLEASE ENSURE YOU HAVE TRAVEL INSURANCE.**
SHOULD YOU HAVE ANY COVID RELATED SYMPTOMS WE WILL REQUIRE A NEGATIVE TEST RESULT PRIOR TO YOUR ATTENDANCE.
IF WE CANCEL ANY OF OUR PROGRAMS
In the very unlikely case that we cancel any of the retreats/trainings, and provided that the retreat centre/venue refunds our own deposits, we will refund to you all deposits and payments you have paid. We cannot however compensate you for airfare, travel or any other costs incurred like processing fees or currency discrepancies between time of booking and time of refund.
**In the unlikely event that we must cancel a retreat due to weather, Force Majeure, acts of God, natural disaster, pandemic, or political upheaval, we cannot guarantee a refund. To cover these risks, we highly recommend you purchase travel insurance.**
Neither Party will be liable for any failure or delay in performing an obligation under this Terms and Conditions that is due to any of the following causes, to the extent beyond its reasonable control: acts of God, accident, riots, war, terrorist act, epidemic, pandemic, quarantine, civil commotion, breakdown of communication facilities, breakdown of web host, breakdown of internet service provider, natural catastrophes, governmental acts or omissions, changes in laws or regulations, national strikes, fire, explosion, generalised lack of availability of raw materials or energy.
The best way to protect yourself from any unforeseen circumstance is to purchase cancelation/interruption insurance. Travel Insurance can protect you in case:
• You cancel your participation in one of our retreats
• The retreat is cancelled due to weather, natural disaster, force majeure or not enough participants to run the trip
• Lost baggage or personal items
• Medical expenses and the cost of repatriation should you become ill or injured
Transport to and from Retreats
Some retreats may offer a one-off aiport shuttle for pick-ups and drop-offs; please check with the specific retreat. Should you not be able to meet the shuttle in time, we can also organise the airport transfer for you at your own cost, or we can help you figure out other transportation options. However travel arrangements to and from the site of the retreats are entirely your responsibility and we cannot be held responsible for any delays or cancelations of your flights or bus rides.
