1. BOOKING PROCEDURE
(a) On making a booking with us, each person attending must accept the terms of these Booking Conditions.
(b) Payment of a non-refundable deposit (amount varies according to specific retreat) will confirm your place.
Where a deposit has been paid to ensure an early bird special price, a final request will be sent to you approximately 1 week before the early bird deadline for full payment to be made showing the date for payment of the balance of the price of the retreat. If the balance of the Early bird price for your retreat is not paid on time, we reserve the right to increase the price to the full non discounted rate.
Full price bookings require full payment to be made 4 weeks prior to retreat start date or immediately if booking is last minute. If the outstanding payment is not received 4 weeks before the retreat dates we retain your deposit and apply the Cancellation Charge set out in Paragraph 4.
(c) For bookings made within 6 weeks of the date of departure, the full payment will become due immediately upon confirmation of the booking. Once payment has been made any subsequent cancellation will incur Cancellation Charges as set out in paragraph 4.
(d) Your booking is considered definite and a contract will exist between you and Cherry Yoga only when an email of confirmation has been sent to you. No contract will exist between us prior to our issuing the confirmation email.
(e) We reserve the right to increase the prices published prior to the time that you book your holiday. Any increase in price will be advised to you before you book the holiday.
