DEPOSIT | PAYMENT | CANCELLATION POLICY
To reserve your spot with Cater2UTravels, LLC , please make a $300 deposit via the Reserve Now tab.
The deposit is non-refundable – however should you cancel your reservation 75 or more days before the start of the Group trip, you may apply your deposit toward another Group occurring within 12 months from the date of the initial Group that you registered for, if available.
FULL PAYMENT (WITHIN 75 DAYS OF GROUP TRIP)
When you reserve, you may either pay in full or pay the deposit. Upon receipt of your payment, we will send you a receipt and an invoice for the balance, if any. Full payment is due 75 days prior to the start date of the Group trip. You may pay with credit card, paypal, bill pay or bank transfer. (credit cards and paypal will be charged an additional 3.5% processing fee)
LATE PAYMENT FEE ($150)
We must pay our tour operators in advance; therefore we must collect your full payment no later than 75 days in advance of the start of the Group trip. If you do not pay in full in 75 days or more from Group trip date, we will add $150 late payment fee to your invoice.
Please note that there will be no refunds or discounts for arriving late, leaving early, flight cancellations, travel delays or illness. If you cancel your participation in a Group trip for any reason, the cancellation policy below will apply, with no exceptions. We wish we could compensate people for unforseen circumstances (injury, family emergency, etc), but we have costs already incurred when reserving transportation, excursions, and hotels. We have designed our cancellation policy to be as compassionate as possible in the case that your plans change. But to protect yourself further, we strongly encourage you to purchase travel insurance.
IF YOU CANCEL THE GROUP TRIP:
100 days or more prior to the start of the Group trip, you receive: 100% credit of the cost of the full Group trip toward another Cater2UTravels, LLC Group trip within 12 months.
0-100 days prior to the start of the Group trip, you receive: no refunds or credits will be given.
To cancel, you must send an email stating that you wish to cancel to: email@example.com.
IF WE CANCEL ANY GROUP TRIP:
If we cancel a trip due to too few participants, we will refund to you all deposits and payments you have paid. We cannot however compensate you for airfare or travel costs incurred. In the unlikely event that Cater2UTravels, LLC must cancel a Group trip due to weather, natural disaster or political upheaval, we cannot guarantee a refund – it will be depending on receiving a refund from the venue / tour operator we work with. To cover these risks, we 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 in case:
• You cancel your participation in the yoga retreat
• Retreat is cancelled due to weather, natural disaster, or not enough participants to run the trip
• Lost baggage
• Medical expenses and the cost of repatriation should you become ill or injured
We recommend TRAVELGUARD, which offers a variety of travel insurances, including the option for a comprehensive “cancel for any reason” policy. If you cancel your retreat – for any reason – your airfare, hotel, retreat costs, etc. up until 48 hours prior to travel, will be covered. This comprehensive package is called the ” Gold Package Cancel for Any Reason” Policy”. You must contact Travelguard and purchase the policy within 15 days of buying your airline tickets or incurring any costs for any part of your travel. You can also just insure your air tickets. Travelguard can give you quotes for each scenario.
