Terms & Policies Cetacean Communication Retreat 2019

By participating in the Cetacean Communication Retreat 2019, you agree to the following:

Payment Policy

A non-refundable deposit of £750 is required to reserve your place.

Subsequent payments are refunded in accordance with the cancellation and refund table below

If you miss a payment, we will remind you and give you a further 14 days to make the payment.

After 14 days of the missed payment, your place will be cancelled and any payments you made will be non-refundable and non-transferable. This includes the deposit payment.

If your booking is received after one or more payment due dates, the full total of all payments for such due dates must be received before your booking is accepted. For example, if you book in December 2018, you would pay the deposit payment and first split-payment together as one, then the following payment on the due date 4 January 2019. You can also opt to pay the full payment.

Booking Process

Once your registration form is received places will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. The first payment will be invoiced if your application is accepted. Further payments will be invoiced 7 days before the due date and will be due in full in GBP.

There is no formal teaching on this retreat. Please come with the foundation knowledge and experience, having attended an animal communication workshop or completed an online basics course with myself or another reputable animal communicator.

If you prefer a more regular payment plan we are happy to create that for you! The payment amounts will still be due by their stated dates, but we can offer smaller, more regularly invoices if that helps you.

Reserve List

Names and emails will also be held on reserve list in case of cancellations. Places are limited and will be filled on a first-come first-served basis. Early booking is advised.

If you have to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances, please notify us before the next payment date.

If the retreat is full where possible we will try and transfer your place to another, or if you know someone who would like to take your place, please let us know. There may be third party costs to transfer your place, and either you or your replacement must pay these costs together with our reasonable administration costs to manage the transfer. Our reasonable administrative costs should not exceed £100. We will then refund the costs you have paid.

No refunds or transfers will be made if you cancel on or after 1 February 2019.

This refund excludes payments made by you in order to fulfil your part of the trip including and not excluding international flight, travel insurance etc.

If there is no one to fill your place, you will not be entitled to a refund of any fees paid. You are strongly advised to take out travel insurance at a level suitable for all of the components of this trip before booking.

For the avoidance of doubt, if you fail to make any payment by the due date we shall not be obliged to try to transfer your place.
