Cancellation & Refund Policy

Deposit is non-refundable. Cancellations by Feb 1, 2022 receive a full refund. Cancellations before March 19, 2022 receive credit towards other Windows to Wisdom courses & retreats. No refunds after March 19, 2022.

 

Windows to Wisdom reserves the right to cancel or reschedule any retreat due to insufficient registrations, instructor illness, or unforeseen circumstances beyond our control. In such situations, you will be notified up to 48 hours prior to the scheduled start time of the retreat. If the retreat is canceled, registered attendees will get a FULL REFUND of the amount paid for any retreat. All refunds will be processed within10 working days.

 

* Trip cancellation insurance is always recommended when making travel plans. You can use our suggested Travel Guard insurance online and choose from several policy options. We strongly recommend that you obtain travel insurance with a CFAR (Cancel For Any Reason) clause to protect yourself in case your flight is canceled due to inclement weather, or should an emergency occur making you unable to travel. Credits will not be issued due to incoming flight delays and/or cancellations.

 

In the event that Covid-19 protocols interfere (for example destination is under lockdown), the retreat will be rescheduled for a later date when travel is possible again.

 

If this occurs, you will have the option to transfer all of your funds towards future retreat dates or you will be receiving a full refund.

 

No refund is given if the participant is contracting the virus and can’t attend the retreat in which case travel insurance would most likely cover any losses depending on the travel insurer’s policy. It is important to confirm with the travel insurance provider that Covid-19 related issues are covered and to what extent.
