Booking terms and conditions

While we always try to treat cancellation sympathetically, we reserve the right to apply the following charges.

Cancellation Period  Cost 
4 weeks or less prior to departure    No refund
8 to 4 weeks prior to departure 50%  refund
More than 8 weeks prior to departure 100% refund

However, as our retreats are often fully subscribed,  if we can give your place to another customer who is on our waiting list, we will endeavour to do so, and give you a full refund minus a €120 admin fee.

We suggest you take out travel insurance as soon as you book your retreat, which will cover you for cancellations and other eventualities, as we cannot waive our cancellation policy or be liable for the loss of your holiday.

Before you book your retreat, we ask that you read and if you wish to book, sign and return the terms and conditions (as below) which will be sent to you with the booking form. By signing it, you will be indicating that you understand the terms and conditions of the booking.

BOOKINGS:

In order to secure your place at Little Cyprus Retreat you need to pay a €250 deposit through PayPal, bank transfer, or Western Union. Shortly after you finish your registration, depending on the option you choose you will receive a PayPal money request or instructions regarding how to pay the deposit through bank transfer or Western Union. There is no contract between Little Cyprus Retreat and the customer until full payment has been made. Full payment of the balance is to be made no later than 8 weeks before departure, ideally at the time of booking.

INSURANCE:

It is a condition of booking overseas holidays that all clients must have travel insurance to cover sickness, cancellation or curtailment.

CHANGES OR AMENDMENTS TO COURSES OR VENUES:

If for any reason a training course or instruction leader becomes unavailable, we will do our best to find a replacement of similar training and quality. Wherever possible you will be advised in advance of any alterations. Amenities or courses may be altered or amended due to maintenance work, mechanical faults, weather conditions, sickness or other situations outside our control and for which Little Cyprus Retreat cannot be held responsible.

 

LIABILITY:

We do NOT accept any liability for:

  • Cancellations, delays or changes caused by war, threat of war, terrorist actions or threats, closure of airports, civil strife, industrial action, natural disaster, technical problems to transport, staff cancellations or other events beyond our control.
  • Participants’ medical or psychiatric conditions which may develop during or subsequent to the holiday, loss of, or damage to personal property of the participants.

HEALTH:

Non-disclosure of relevant health information, whether physical or psychiatric, can invalidate your travel insurance and cancel our contractual obligation to you. You should in any case inform us of any health issues prior to booking.

In order to avoid injury we ask that you agree to follow all instructions given to you by the instructor as to when, where and how to perform and not to perform the yoga, it being understood that any deviation by you from such instructions shall be at your own risk.

Customers must listen to their own bodies and work within their own limitations. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that they never take any exercise which is uncomfortable or hurts.

Little Cyprus Retreat will not be held responsible for any injuries suffered, caused in whole or in part by failure to faithfully follow instructions. Our holidays are not suitable if you cannot take responsibility for yourself either physically or emotionally. By signing this form, you confirm that you are medically, physically, emotionally and in all respects fit and able to participate in this retreat.

IF WE CANCEL THE RETREAT:

In the unlikely case that Little Cyprus Retreat cancels any of the retreats/courses 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 we must cancel a yoga retreat/course due to weather, natural disaster or political upheaval, we cannot guarantee a refund. To cover these risks, you must purchase travel insurance.

YOUR TRAVEL INSURANCE: 

The best way to protect yourself from any unforeseen circumstance is to purchase cancellation/interruption insurance. Travel Insurance can protect you in case:

  •  You cancel your participation in the yoga retreat
    •  The retreat is cancelled due to weather, natural disaster, or not enough participants.
    •  Lost baggage or personal items.
    •  Medical expenses and the cost of repatriation should you become ill or injured

You will be asked to sign and date and return this document on booking.
