2. Other Cancellations
Payment plans are provided for the convenience of the participants. Modifications, such as pausing the payment plan, or changing the amounts are not permissible. As such, all participants who have opted into payment plans must keep an active monthly billing subscription through the luxecouplesretreat.com website or through The Company’s automated recurring billing system. Failure to do so will result in forfeiting all prior payments made, and your reservation at the retreat and resort.
All participants are required to complete our retreat questionnaire, travel/flight form and all other requested documentation a minimum of 30 days prior to your retreat date. Failure to do so forfeits your reservation for the retreat. Refunds will be issued based on the policies stated above.
If the facilitator must cancel this retreat prior to the commencement, immediate notice and a full refund of the retreat payment will be given. If the facilitator must cancel the retreat during the retreat due to illness or emergency, the facilitator will make alternate arrangements for couples to receive retreat lessons and information. If that cannot be provided, couples will receive a prorated amount for the portion of fees that are related to the retreat. No refunds will be provided on the cost associated with the resort accommodations.
In the event of a city- or state-declared emergency or resort or airport closure, full or partial retreat refunds may be given if funds remain after fees or penalties acquired by The Company are deducted.
Should you choose not to engage in or attend group sessions while at the retreat, The Company may terminate services and no refund will be issued for Luxe Couple’s Retreat activities.
Any participant or couple who has not checked in by 11:00pm of the 2nd day of the retreat forfeits their payment, the resort reservation, retreat participation, and all other benefits associated with the resort and Luxe Couples Retreat, and any affiliate.
If you or your partner are rude, inappropriate, or disrespectful to resort staff, Luxe Couple’s Retreat facilitators, or affiliates, The Company reserves the right to terminate services and no refund will be issued.
