CANCELLATION & REFUND POLICY

All retreat purchases and reservations are non-refundable. No exceptions to this policy can be made for any reason, therefore holiday insurance with a cancellation policy to cover any such rare occurrence is strongly recommended. We reserve the right to cancel retreats with inadequate participant interest, in which case all money paid to Etxenike Group AB - Tellus Retreats will be refunded. Notification of cancellation will occur at least 1 month prior to retreat start date. Etxenike Group AB - Tellus Retreats cannot be held responsible for any personal expenses, such as airline tickets due to changes in itineraries or retreat cancellations.

TRAVEL TO RETREAT LOCATION

Travel and airport transfers are not included in the retreat price. We are happy to assist with arranging transport to or from the airport. Please contact us.

RIGHT TO CHANGES

The Tellus Retreat reserves the right to amend the booking dates. This may be due to several reasons, not limited to but including, war, adverse weather conditions, riots and or matters concerning participants safety, operational circumstances such as damage caused by fire, or the accommodation becoming unusable due to utility company work or lack of services, leaks, repair work or any other such reason. In these circumstances the booking may need to be adjusted accordingly. The Tellus Retreat  is not liable for any additional costs or losses that may be incurred by the client due to the change of booking. This includes, but is not limited to, any extra hotel reservations or car rentals, or the cost of non-refundable airline tickets. Situations may arise which, in our opinion, make it necessary for us to alter the normal booking schedule. We advise that your travel insurance covers holiday curtailment.

Where a teacher or facilitator advertised for a retreat is not able to teach due to reasons outside our control, we reserve the right to replace them with another teacher or facilitator.
