DEPOSITS & PAYMENTS

Payments Directly Through Coherence Retreats

For all our retreats, securing your booking requires a non-refundable deposit per person along with the submission of our online booking form. This deposit ensures your spot on the retreat and covers non-refundable essentials on your behalf, such as accommodation reservations.

  • Deposit and Full Payment Schedule: You can book a retreat with a deposit until 60 days before the retreat start date. After this point, full payment is required to confirm your booking, subject to availability.
  • Balance Payment: The remaining balance for your retreat is due 1 day before the retreat begins, unless stated otherwise. We will notify you of the balance due date once your deposit is processed.
  • Cancellation of Booking: If the final balance is not received by the due date, Coherence Retreats LLC reserves the right to cancel your booking and forfeit your deposit.
  • Deposit Transfer: Should your plans change,¬†any payment made towards the retreat are transferable to another retreat within one calendar year, provided you notify us 60 days or more before your scheduled retreat start date.
  • Payment Methods: Deposits can be paid with all major credit cards.

Payment Plan through Affirm

  • 12 or 36-Month Payment Plan: We offer a flexible payment plan through Affirm, allowing you to finance the full price of the retreat over 12 or 36 months without an upfront deposit. This plan divides the cost into manageable monthly payments.
  • Non-Refundable Payments: Payments made through Affirm are non-refundable. However, we offer the option to apply your payments as credit towards a future retreat in case of cancellation. For this credit, notification of cancellation is required at least 2 months before the retreat start date. After that it becomes non-refundable and non-exchangeable.¬†
  • Third-Party Transactions: All financial arrangements under this plan are handled directly through Affirm, an independent third-party provider. We advise familiarizing yourself with Affirm's terms to ensure their services meet your expectations.

REFUND / CANCELLATION

We at Coherence Retreats LLC understand that life is unpredictable and sometimes unexpected events may interfere with your plans. In recognition of this, we have outlined our cancellation policy below, which prioritizes flexibility while respecting the logistical and financial commitments involved in planning our retreats.

  • ¬†Written Notice Required: Any cancellation request by a client must be submitted in writing (via email) and will only be considered valid once acknowledged by Coherence Retreats LLC in writing (via email).
  • Cancellation with Credit Option: Should you find yourself needing to cancel more than 60 days before your retreat start date, we offer the option to convert your payment into a credit. This credit can be applied to any other retreat we host within one calendar year from the original date of your booking. Please ensure you notify us of your decision to cancel and convert your payment into a credit at least 60 days before your scheduled retreat start date to be eligible for this option.

  • Non-Refundable Payments: It is important to note that all payments become non-refundable and non-exchangeable if the cancellation occurs less than 60 days before the retreat start date. This policy is in place to ensure the sustainability and quality of our retreats, as many costs are incurred in the planning and execution phases that cannot be recovered last minute.

We encourage our clients to carefully consider their plans and commitments before booking. Our team is dedicated to providing an enriching and transformative retreat experience and we are here to assist with any questions or concerns you may have regarding our cancellation policy.

BALANCE TRANSFER

Full and partial retreat payments can be transferred to another retreat taking place within one calendar year, if you notify us 60 days or more before the retreat start date.

There is a $100 deposit transfer fee associated with making this change, but avoids incurring the cancellation fee.

You may only transfer your retreat deposit one time.

Coherence Retreats LLC is not responsible for any fees incurred due to currency exchange or fees charged by your credit card/bank for processing funds in another currency.

MEDICAL CONDITIONS & SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

The Client must inform Coherence Retreats LLC on our registration form of any medical conditions, pregnancy, disability or any other mental and or physical condition which may affect fitness to travel, including medications you are currently taking.

Some retreats may be unsuitable for Clients due to age, mobility, disability, pregnancy or physical or mental conditions, please email if you have concerns.

It is absolutely vital that you are accurate with your fitness level and medical conditions for your own safety.

Coherence Retreats LLC will do its best to meet special requests including dietary or physical limitations but such requests may not always be possible depending on the retreat, in which case Coherence Retreats LLC reserves the right to refuse Clients with certain conditions.

Coherence Retreats LLC will do its best to meet Client’s special requests including dietary, but such requests do not form part of the Contract and therefore Coherence Retreats LLC is not liable for not providing these requests.

As a client, you MUST carry medical insurance. Medical facilities vary from country to country and Coherence Retreats LLC will do its absolute best to bring you to a proper medical facility as needed, but makes no representations and gives no warranties in relation to the standard of such treatment.

FINAL PAYMENTS

For all retreats, the payment of the FINAL balance of the retreat price is due 1 day prior to the retreat start date in the currency advertised, unless otherwise stated in a signed contract with the Client.

If a booking is made within less than 60 days, your deposit including full payment will be required at your initial sign up. 

We break down payments into 3 standardly for most retreats.

If the final balance is not received by the due date and there is no concise reason as to why, Coherence Retreats LLC reserves the right to treat the Client’s booking as cancelled.
