Booking terms and conditions for Reading Retreat

 

 

Thank you for your interest in Reading Retreat.  Please read the following terms and conditions before proceeding.

 

Cancellation by you:

Should you need to cancel your booking the following policy will be applied:

 

More than 12 weeks notice before the booked retreat you will receive a full refund.

8-12 weeks notice 50% refund.  

If you cancel within 8 weeks of the booked retreat we are unable to offer a refund.

 

We will endeavour to resell your booking and, if successful, any payments received for such booking sold will be taken into account, based on the applied percentage, when calculating your cancellation fee.  If appropriate, we will attempt to move your booking to a mutually convenient alternative Retreat.

 

Cancellation or change by us:

 

We will use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Retreat takes place on the planned date and at the location advertised.  However, where this becomes impractical due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control, or where bookings are insufficient to justify it, we may cancel or rearrange the Retreat at our discretion.

 

In such cases:

 

Where a Retreat is cancelled, our only liability to you will be to refund the total of the Fees which we have received from you in respect of the Retreat, less any previously processed refunds.

 

Where a Retreat is rearranged to take place on the original date but at another location within a 15 mile radius of the originally advertised location, we consider the terms of the original Retreat to have remained the same.  

 

Where a Retreat is rearranged to take place on the original date but at another location outside of a 15 mile radius of the originally advertised location, we ask that you reconfirm your booking within 24 hours of us advising you of the change of location.  Otherwise, we will have no liability for the change of location.  Should you choose not to reconfirm, the refund policy above will apply.

 

​Where an Retreat is rearranged to take place on another date, you will be entitled to choose  to either transfer your booking to the new Retreat  (in which case, these terms and conditions shall apply to that new event and all definitions used will be interpreted accordingly,) or to receive a full refund of the total of the Fees which we have received from you in respect of the Retreat, less any previously processed refunds. If appropriate, we will attempt to move your booking to a mutually convenient alternative Retreat.

 

 

Author:

 

Should the advertised author be unable to attend due to circumstances beyond our control, we will endeavour to arrange another author and will keep you updated of any changes.  Author attendance is not a guaranteed element of the Retreat.

 

 

Travel Insurance:

 

It is your responsibility to  ensure you have adequate travel insurance for this trip. Our insurance means we cannot drive you anywhere, but we can provide details of local taxi firms as required.
