Payment & Cancellation Policy
In order to secure your private retreat a non-refundable $1,000 deposit is required to hold each reservation. The balance is due and must be received by Santo Tomas Retreats 60 days prior to your retreat.
If you must cancel the $1,000 deposit is non-refundable. Once you pay in full if you cancel within 60 days of the first day of your retreat the full balance will be non-refundable. 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 more than 60 days before the beginning of the retreat, we will not refund your deposit. We wish we could compensate people for unforeseen circumstances (injury, family emergency, etc), but we have costs already incurred when reserving retreat accommodations and excursions etc. To protect yourself further, we strongly encourage you to purchase travel insurance.
If We Cancel the Retreat
In the very unlikely case that Santo Tomas Retreats cancels any of the retreats 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/training/cruise due to weather, natural disaster or political upheaval, we can not guarantee a refund – it will be depending on receiving a refund from the venue/tour operator we work with. To cover these risks, we highly recommend you purchase travel insurance.
The best way to protect yourself from any unforeseen circumstance is to purchase cancelation/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
