The Retreat is hosted by Sancti Wellness Ltd.
Please note that because Sancti Retreats are limited to a small number of attendees, to allow for a more personable, intimate experience, our cancellation policy is in place to help guests and us alike work together sharing expenses that may arise from unexpected cancellations.
1. Hold deposits are non-refundable
2. Hold deposits (minus the £100 re-listing fee), are transferrable to another attendee found and assigned by original attendee.
3. If you for some reason can no longer make the dates, we can offer you to transfer your retreat dates to the next dates free of charge.
4. Cancellation requests submitted within 30 days of booking may be refunded up to 50% of total amount (less deposit). For bookings that are cancelled, any refunds are at the discretion of Sancti and you will need to speak with us directly.
5. Any refunds allowed will incur a 3% processing fee.
No one books a retreat with the intention of cancelling it, but unexpected events do occur, so please do consider purchasing travel insurance (see below) and that it is your responsibility to read and understand our cancellation policies. It is our priority to create an incredible experience and cancellations limit our ability to do this for the whole group.
Exceptions cannot be made for any reason including weather, injury/illness, or personal emergencies. No refunds or credits for failure to attend or failure to complete the retreat, or for arriving late or early. We recommend that you purchase your own travel insurance. We encourage you to purchase trip cancellation insurance in order that your trip fees will be covered should you or your family have a medical problem prior to your trip or while on the trip. Trip insurance should also be purchased to cover medical expenses in the event you have an accident while on the retreat. Most travel insurance must be purchased within 14 days of making your reservation. We reserve the right to cancel retreats, in which case all money paid to Sancti will be refunded. Notification of cancellation for this reason will occur at least 1 month prior to the retreat start date. Sancti cannot be held responsible for any personal expenses, such as airline tickets due to changes itineraries or retreat cancellations.
*COVID-19 Pandemic Good Faith Policy: if pandemic conditions compromise the holding of the retreat, your ticket becomes transferrable to the new retreat dates which will be given to you as soon as possible. Should the retreat fail to be rescheduled, a full refund (minus bank transfer charges) will be issued.
