Cancellation & Refund Policy -
The retreat runs on a strict policy of a non-refundable deposit booking fee.
To gain a refund of the deposit booking fee you must contact us within 72 hours after the booking is made.
The deposit can not be refunded under any circumstance. This includes if you, or we need to cancel for any reason. This includes a change of circumstances due to COVID-19, i.e, that you have tested positive for COVID-19 and cannot attend the retreat. This includes any illness or injury that may prevent you from attending the event. This includes any reason why you may not be able to attend the retreat. This is to cover our costs as a small business running these special events that we put so much love & care into.
The deposit con not be transferred to another retreat or person.
If you do not show up on the day of your retreat we cannot provide any refunds.
We cannot refund any fees you have paid at booking including any service charges or absorb fees. This is because the cost of your ticket covers our running costs.
By purchasing your ticket you are responsible for taking any safety precautions to ensure your attendance at the retreat. Isabella Strambio, cannot take any responsibility to ensure your attendance at our retreat.
Isabella Strambio, reserve the right to cancel the retreat for any reason. If Isabella Strambio, decide for whatever reason that we are no longer able to hold the retreat for any reason, we will move the retreat to a later date in the year and go ahead with it when we are able. In this case, we cannot offer any refunds whatsoever, & your ticket will be valid for use on this new specified date.
Isabella Strambio is not liable under any circumstances of Natural Disaster, War, Pandemic, Failure by the Venue or other situation that is out of Isabella’s control. Refunds will not be available. Isabella will do her best to sort alternative arrangements depending on the scale of the situation.
Most people don’t think about the need for insurance when travelling especially within the UK but the unexpected can always happen and if you need to cancel your visit to us you could lose your deposit or even the full cost of the retreat therefore it is strongly advised all our guests to arrange Personal Accident and Travel/Cancellation Insurance when booking onto one of our retreats and recommend you take time to research a company that suits your personally.
