SMILE Teachers Cancellations Definitions
“Cancellation” is defined as not attending your scheduled retreat, including postponing or rescheduling. “You” refers to the guest booking a Smile Teacher's retreat. “We” refers to Smile Teachers. It is your responsibility to read and understand our cancellation policy before making a reservation. Naturally, no one books with the intention of cancelling or postponing their retreat, but unexpected things do happen, so please consider purchasing travel cancellation insurance.
Travel Cancellation Insurance
Depending on the policy and conditions, travel cancellation insurance may pay for some or all cancellation fees. Strictly for informational purposes and not to be relied upon, with most agencies, this type of insurance must be purchased within 14 days of making your reservation to optimize your level of protection.
Guest Cancellation Policy
Depending on when you cancel, cancellation fees may apply. Fees are determined by the following schedule (“the Cancellation fee schedule”):
- If you cancel 60 days or more before your retreat start date, you will be refunded the full retreat amount (minus your $500 booking fee)
- If you cancel 60 days or less before your retreat start date, you will forfeit your entire payment.
Due to our need to commit to accommodation and other arrangements in advance, exceptions to our policy cannot be made for any reason.
We do not offer credit for arriving late or leaving early. A guest can change to another retreat 30 days or before your retreat start date for a fee of $250. Please note the retreat must have availability.
Smile Teachers Cancellation Policy
While we have never cancelled a retreat to date and will endeavor to maintain this record, if Smile Teachers must cancel or change a scheduled retreat date for any reason whatsoever, you’re entitled to transfer your full retreat payment to another retreat (either scheduled or at some future time). Alternatively you may request a refund of your applicable payment, which will be accommodated for insofar as is possible, taking into consideration any non-retrievable costs to which we committed in anticipation of your retreat.
Smile Teachers is not responsible for your expenses incurred in preparation for any cancelled retreat such as other accommodation, airline tickets, loss of work, and/or other costs associated with preparing for your trip.
