Training Retreat Terms & Conditions
Effective date: June 2023
Please take the time to read and understand the conditions of booking a trip with Petra Erving and Aftercare Academy
A non-refundable deposit of £399 is required for your booking to be confirmed. If your booking is made within 30 days of the retreat start date, then the full amount is payable at the time of booking which includes your non-refundable deposit.
50% of the total amount is due 90 days before the start of the retreat date.
Payment of the balance of the trip is due 30 days prior to the retreat start date unless otherwise noted. If the balance is not paid on or before the due date we reserve the right to treat your booking as cancelled.
If you would like to pay via an instalment plan, you must inform the Retreat leader Petra Erving within 7 days of paying your deposit.
All retreat prices are quoted in GBP.
Petra Erving, Aftercare Academy or Jan Trewartha are not responsible for any fees incurred due to currency exchange or fees charged by your credit card/bank for processing funds in another currency.
Passport And Visa
You must carry a valid passport and have obtained all of the appropriate visas, permits and certificates for the countries in which you will visit during your trip. Your passport must be valid for 6 months beyond the duration of the trip. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are in possession of the correct visas, permits and certificates for your trip. Petra Erving, Aftercare Academy or Jan Trewartha are not responsible if you are refused entry to a country because you lack the correct passport, visa or other travel documentation.
Retreats do not include national or international airfare. We strongly recommend you wait until the trip is confirmed to run before booking airfare or making any non-refundable travel arrangements.
Travel insurance is recommended for all travelers, and if purchased, should be taken out at the time of booking. Your travel insurance should provide cover against personal accident, death, medical expenses and emergency repatriation with all recommended minimum coverage of £200,000 GBP. I strongly recommend it cover cancellation, curtailment, and all other expenses that might arise as a result of loss, damage, injury, delay, illness preventing your trip or inconvenience.
Right To Refuse Service
Petra Erving, Aftercare Academy and Jan Trewartha and the retreat organizers reserve the right to accept, decline, or retain any person as a participant at the Retreat at any time without liability and without any obligation to pay a refund or any other amount whatsoever. The Retreat Organizers take no responsibility or liability for any participant who leaves the Retreat prior to its conclusion or for any activity undertaken by any participant that is not included on the Schedule of Events or other itinerary.
Cancellation Due To Retreat Booking Numbers
Petra Erving, Aftercare Academy and Jan Trewartha reserves the right to cancel any retreat prior to departure in the event that there are too few people booked in which case you will be given a full refund of any and all payments made. You will not be entitled to claim any additional amounts or seek any compensation for any injury, loss, expenses or damage (either direct or consequential) or for any loss of time or inconvenience which may result from such cancellation (including but not limited to visa and passport fees and expenses, flights, flight cancellation and reservation fees, and vaccination costs). Again Petra Erving, Aftercare Academy and Jan Trewartha recommends that you purchase travel insurance.
Petra Erving, Aftercare Academy and Jan Trewartha reserves the right to make changes to any aspect of the retreat if, in the absolute discretion of Petra Erving, Aftercare Academy and Jan Trewartha, it is necessary to do so due to conditions that may be hazardous or dangerous or due to any other adverse or threatening conditions such as weather, political, military, terrorist or otherwise or for any other reason considered necessary by Petra Erving, Aftercare Academy and Jan Trewartha.
Petra Erving and the Aftercare Academy reserves the right to make changes to the schedule of training. If any changes take place, the student will be informed via email.
Cancellations By Participant
If you as a retreat participator has to cancel a retreat for any reason, including but not limited to bad weather, natural disasters, acts of terrorism, flight delays or cancellations, illness, health conditions, medical or personal or family or work emergencies or change of mind, the policy is as follows:
- £399 deposit will not be refunded.
- If you cancel more than 90 days in advance of retreat start date, a full refund, minus non-refundable deposit will be given.
- If you cancel within 60 days of the retreat start date, a 50% refund minus non-refundable deposit will be given.
- If you cancel with 30 days or less of the retreat start date, no refund will be given.
- If the participant has to leave prior to its conclusion, refunds will not be made for the unused portion of the trip. No refunds will be made for any excursion, meal, yoga class or workshop or other activity that the participant misses or decides not to participate in for any reason.
Cancellation By Petra Erving, Aftercare Academy or Jan Trewartha
Petra Erving, Aftercare Academy and Jan Trewartha also reserves, in their absolute discretion, the right to cancel any retreat due to any material change in any government travel warning or advisory. In this event, we will do all we can to transfer any payments you may have made to a future retreat with Aftercare Academy. If we cannot offer you an alternative date, your investment will be refunded.
If Petra Erving, Aftercare Academy and Jan Trewartha are prevented from performing any of their obligations under this Agreement by acts of God, strikes, trade disputes, fire, weather, breakdowns, interruption of transport, government or political action, acts of war or terrorism, acts or omissions of a third party or for any other cause whatsoever outside Petra Erving, Aftercare Academy and Jan Trewartha's reasonable control, Petra Erving, Aftercare Academy and Jan Trewartha will be under no liability whatsoever to you and may either cancel or postpone the retreat.
