retreats Terms & Conditions
Outlined below are the Unify Consciousness retreats (henceforth referred to as “UC”) terms of service. It is your responsibility to fully understand the terms and conditions for each of our retreats set out at www.unifyconsciousness.com (henceforth referred to as “the website”). Should you have questions regarding the terms and conditions of UC, we are available to clarify any areas in advance of signing a contract with us. Those who book their reservation by placing any payment accept the following terms and conditions.
1. Retreat Pricing
All prices are per person or per couple (as designated) and vary depending on a variety of cost factors. Prices include retreat costs only; they do not include airfare, ground transportation, nor travel insurance. UC believes in fair pricing for all retreat attendees; therefore, all prices are set and non-negotiable.
Reserve your spot with a non-refundable $700 deposit per person, couples booking to share a bed are still required to make a non-refundable deposit of $700 per person ($1,400 combined)
3. Retreat Payment
Payments can only be made when using a credit/debit card. UC will charge the retreat balance in full (remain balance) 40 days prior to the retreat start date; using the card on file. If full payment is not received 40 days prior to the retreat start date, we reserve the right to cancel your reservation and fill your spot. UC will make every effort to avoid this situation by contacting you prior to and on the day of the balance due date.
4. Payment Changes
To make changes to the payment type that you had previously submitted on file, please notify us at email@example.com and be sure to title your subject CHANGE OF PAYMENT - RETURN MAY RETREAT. Also provide us with your full name and let us know the best time and a phone number to contact you. Please do not submit any credit card or personal information via email.
If you wish to cancel your retreat you must notify UC in writing by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Your cancellation fee will be determined according to the terms outlined below. Exceptions to our cancellation policy cannot be made for ANY reason, including weather, terrorism, civil unrest, health changes, personal emergencies, etc. There is no discount/refund for arriving late, leaving early, flight cancellations, travel delays, or illness.
●If cancellation takes place more than 60 days prior to retreat start date, any payments made will be refunded minus your deposit.
●If cancellation takes place between 40-60 days prior to retreat start date, 50% of the trip price will be forfeited minus your deposit.
●If cancellation takes place less than 40 days prior to retreat start date, 100% of the trip price will be forfeited.
Important: If we attempt to charge the remaining balance 40 days before the retreat start date as noted above but the card is declined, and you do not cancel your registration, nor respond to our communication, UC retains the right to release your spot. The remaining balance for your spot which has not then been paid to UC by you, will be recovered from you by UC as a debt due and payable. Consider travel insurance to protect the costs of your trip in the case of injury, illness or inability to attend for other reasons.
7. Retreat Cancellations
UC reserves the right to make any changes deemed necessary; including, but not limited to: UC staffing assignments, advertised excursions, arranged transportation, advertised meals, etc. In the rare case of a UC cancellation, UC will offer a full refund of your payment to UC. UC is not responsible for any expenses or damages incurred as a result of retreat cancellation including preparation costs, airline tickets, travel documents, visa/passport fees, vaccination charges, gear purchases, taxes, or other expenses.
UC 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 to UC. You will not be entitled to claim any additional amounts or seek any compensation for any injury, loss, expenses or damages (either direct or consequential) or for any loss of time or inconvenience which may result from such cancellation (including but not limited to visa, passport and vaccination charges, or departure, gear purchases, airport and airline taxes). You will not be entitled to claim any additional compensation for loss of time or inconvenience which may result from such cancellation.
TRIP INSURANCE & DOCUMENTS
8. Trip Insurance
Guests are encouraged to purchase individual trip insurance for international retreats. Your deposit and any payments that are made within three months of the retreat start date that are non-refundable, basic trip insurance will protect you for the full amount paid due to cancellation reasons covered by the policy, such as severe weather or illness. Should you need to cancel for any reason not covered by the policy (family or work commitments, pre-existing medical conditions, pregnancy, etc.), a “Cancel for Any Reason” add-on will reimburse you for a percentage of the prepaid, forfeited, non-refundable payments or deposits. This includes your airfare, deposit and any additional payments, if applicable.
Unify Consciousness will not be held responsible for any delay, additional expense or inconvenience that may be caused directly or indirectly by events outside of our control (ie: late arrival/departure of flights, civil disturbance, fire, flood, cyclones, severe weather, acts of God, and acts of government, machinery or equipment failure, or cancellations for any reason.) No refunds will be given for “no shows” or days not used, resulting from the above aforementioned.
9. Travel Documents and Immunizations
It is the responsibility of each traveler to obtain all required travel documents including Visas and health immunizations.
10. Roommate Assignments
Retreat rates are per person. Double, triple, quad, bunk style rooms or otherwise advertised shared rooms require shared occupancy for the specified room rate. If you book a shared room without specified roommate(s), we will do our very best to match you with your desired room type and price point. In the event we can’t find you a roommate, we may present you with different rooming options.
