Cancellations & Refunds
Retreat Cancellation Policy | Samacitta
DEPOSIT if/when a deposit is required - it is 50% of the full price. NB Some retreats require full payment from the outset. We reserve the right to decide whether payment is required in full or in two parts: as a deposit of 50% then balance 50%.
Upon booking a retreat, you may be required to either pay in full or pay an initial 50% deposit, followed by the balance of the retreat payment 90 days prior to the start of the retreat. NB we have to pay our providers - so we cannot go ahead without your payment, so please don’t miss our payment deadlines. To reserve your spot with a deposit on the retreat, please make a 50% NON-REFUNDABLE deposit via credit card through the link provided or via BACS transfer to the Samacitta account.
FULL PAYMENT REQUIRED (WITHIN 90 DAYS OF RETREAT when a 50% deposit is paid first)
There will be no refunds or discounts for arriving late, leaving early, flight cancellations, travel delays or illness. If you cancel your participation in the retreat for any reason, the cancellation policy below will apply, with no exceptions. We wish we could compensate people for unforeseen circumstances (injury, family emergency, etc), but we have costs already incurred when organising a retreat and have to uphold our commitments to our providers. For this reason, we strongly encourage you to purchase travel insurance.
IF YOU CANCEL THE YOGA RETREAT:
After initial booking and until 90 days prior to the retreat: you forfeit your 50% deposit.
31-90 days prior to the start of the yoga retreat: you will receive 50% refund of the cost of the full retreat, providing you have paid your full retreat fee 90 days prior to the start.
0-30 days prior to the start of the retreat - no refunds or credits will be given.
To cancel, you must send an email stating that you wish to cancel your booking made upon (insert date) to: email@example.com.
IF WE CANCEL THE YOGA RETREAT:
If we cancel the trip due to too few participants (we need a minimum of 10), or for any other reason at our discretion, we will refund to you all deposits and payments you have paid. We cannot however compensate you for airfare or any travel or personal costs incurred. In the unlikely event that, we, Samacitta, must cancel the retreat due to extreme weather, natural disaster or major world event, we cannot guarantee a refund – as it will be dependent upon receiving a refund from the venue and providers. To cover these risks, we again highly recommend you purchase travel insurance.
The best way to protect yourself from any unforeseen circumstance is to purchase trip insurance. Travel Insurance can protect you if:
You cancel your participation in the yoga retreat. Retreat is cancelled due to weather, natural disaster, or not enough participants to run the trip.
Baggage is lost.
Medical expenses and the cost of repatriation occur, should you become ill or injured.
Car insurance is needed, in many cases, much cheaper than the insurance provided by car rental companies.
There are a variety of companies providing this service. We recommend that you research their options and consider all encompassing packages that allow you to “cancel for any reason”.
Please note that it is highly recommended that you purchase travel insurance when you book your flight or straight after the initial retreat booking, that covers you if you are unable to attend or your travel plans go awry.
