booking policy (April 2-9, 2022)
Upon booking, you will place a non-refundable deposit of $600 USD.
Your full retreat fee balance is required 30 days prior to the retreat start date.
Retreat bookings are generally processed via We Travel - which accepts direct deposits (free), debit, and credit cards (2.9% added fee). Payment can also be made via bank wire transfer (US or international) or Venmo.
Cancellation & Refund Policy:
If you cancel before 30 days of the start date: your $600 deposit will not be refunded.
If you cancel within 30-15 days of the start date: half of your full payment will be refunded.
If you cancel within 15 days of the start date: full payment will not be refunded, unless someone appears to take the space committed to you, due to venue commitments on cost.
This policy reflects that we have only 12 exclusive spaces that can be booked for this retreat.
Protect yourself with travel insurance.
Due to venue commitments, we cannot offer a refund for last minute cancellations for any reason including a positive Covid-19 test. To further protect your travel investment, including transport costs or unforeseen circumstances, travel insurance is strongly advised for all participants.
For maximum coverage, purchase a 'cancel for any reason policy' upgrade option which covers a high percentage of your non-refundable costs. These policies often need to be bought 14-21 days after booking and have a 48 hours prior to departure cancellation window. Availabe from insurance companies like Trawick International and Travel Guard.
Please note that I do my personal best to be compassionate in unforeseen circumstances, but venue commitments make it necessary for you to protect yourself.
Storyteller Within reserves the right to cancel any program at any time. If an event is cancelled by choice,, you will be fully refunded your retreat fees.
Exception: Storyteller Within is not liable for events beyond all control - such as natural disasters, political upheaval, or other such unexpected circumstances - that would necessitate cancellation of the event.
Venue Policy: If government travel restrictions prevent entry to Guatemala and/or return to your home country, we will transfer 100% of your deposit and payments received to new dates (rooms and dates based on availability) within one year of the originally scheduled dates.
