Cancellation Policy

Please note that there will be no refunds or discounts for arriving late, leaving early, flight cancellations, travel delays or illness. If you cancel your participation in a retreat for any reason, the cancellation policy below will apply, with no exceptions. I wish I could compensate people for unforeseen circumstances (injury, family emergency, etc), but we have costs already incurred when reserving retreat centres and hotels. I have designed the cancellation policy to be as compassionate as possible in the case that your plans change. But to protect yourself further, I strongly encourage you to purchase travel insurance.

For non-residential events and trainings:
Cancellation made more than 60 days prior to the start of the event, you receive full refund, minus 30% cancellation charges.
Cancellation made 60 – 30 days prior to the start of the event, provided your place is filled by another person, you may transfer the full credit (minus 30% cancellation charges) to future events organised by Margherita Dal Pera within the next 12 months from cancellation. Otherwise, you receive no refunds or credits.
Cancellation less than 30 days prior to the start of the event, you receive no refunds or credits.

For Samavesa Immersions:

Please refer to www.samavesa.yoga terms and conditions.


If we cancel the yoga retreat:

In the unlikely event that the retreat must cancel due my family problems or health or too few participants, I will refund to you all deposits and payments you have paid. I cannot compensate you for airfare or travel costs incurred. To cover these risks, I highly recommend you purchase travel insurance.


Travel insurance:

The best way to protect yourself from any unforeseen circumstance is to purchase trip insurance. Travel Insurance can protect you in case:
• you cancel your participation in the yoga retreat
• retreat is cancelled due to above mentioned situations
• lost baggage
• medical expenses and the cost of repatriation should you become ill or injured


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 strike, industrial action, natural disaster, technical problems to transport, staff cancellations, weather or other events beyond our control.
  • Loss of, or damage to, personal property of participants.
  • If you have had any major physical or emotional illness within the past 5 years, or are under medical or psychiatric supervision, you must notify us of the details at the time of booking and, where appropriate, enclose a doctor’s certificate of fitness to travel. Non-disclosure of relevant information can invalidate your insurance and cancel our contractual obligation to you.
  • For sever food allergies please notify us on separate email highlighting the issue. We do our best to cater for all dietary requirements but we cannot guarantee cross contamination in the kitchen. In the case of severe allergies a separate disclaimer will have to be signed.

Payments deposit and balance:

Up to 60 days before retreat only deposit is required. 60 days or less full amount and payment of balance is required. Retreats and immersions aren’t confirmed without full payment.
