Retreats Terms Of Services
RETREATS TERMS OF SERVICE
It is your responsibility to fully understand the terms and conditions for the retreat. Please read carefully what is and is not included in your retreat package and view all-encompassing on the website. Should you have questions regarding the terms and conditions, we are available for consultation and would be happy to clarify any areas in advance of signing a contract with us.
By taking any actions towards attending the retreat, including completing an online reservation/booking, making payment for this retreat, or by attending the retreat, you accept these Terms and Conditions as a binding contract between Health in Progress LLC and you (hereinafter referred to as “you” or “I”).
Upon booking and confirmation, we charge 100% of the retreat price unless an installment plan is agreed upon in writing. All prices are per person and are set well in advance of the retreat start date. Prices include retreat costs only; they do not include travel costs to and from the retreat.
Retreat rates are per person. Double or otherwise advertised shared rooms require shared occupancy for the specified room rate. If you book a shared room without a specified roommate(s), we will do our very best to match you with your desired room type and price point. In the event we can’t find you a roommate for your first pick, we will present you with different rooming options. This means that if there is no roommate, you will have to pay for the full room cost for a single room rate, not a shared rate.
