The retreat runs June 27 to July 2, 2020. Bookings are for the stated period of the retreat. There are no refunds for an unused portion of the retreat. If the reason for cancellation is covered under the terms of your Insurance Policy, you may be able to make a claim on your insurance.

5. Changes/Trip Cancellations
TRISTAN BOYER BINNS and BOSTON YOGA ROPES COLLECTIVE reserves the right to make any changes deemed necessary by our team, trip leaders, teachers or partners. In the unlikely event that I can not facilitate this event, I will find a suitable teacher to lead in my place. In the rare case of a cancellation on the part of TRISTAN BOYER BINNS and BOSTON YOGA ROPES COLLECTIVE we will offer a full refund of your funds. TRISTAN BOYER BINNS and BOSTON YOGA ROPES COLLECTIVE is not responsible for any expenses or damages incurred as a result of trip cancellation including preparation costs, airline tickets, travel documents or other expenses. TRISTAN BOYER BINNS and BOSTON YOGA ROPES COLLECTIVE reserves the right to cancel any trip prior to departure in the event that there are too few people booked in which case you will be given a full refund of any and all payments made to TRISTAN BOYER BINNS and BOSTON YOGA ROPES COLLECTIVE . You will not be entitled to claim any additional amounts or seek any compensation for any injury, loss, expenses or damage (either direct or consequential) or for any loss of time or inconvenience which may result from such cancellation (including but not limited to visa, passport and vaccination charges, or departure, gear purchases, airport and airline taxes).
Cancelation Policy by the event organizer: In the unlikely event that TRISTAN BINNS is unable to travel to the event due to circumstances beyond her control, such as family emergency, sudden illness, weather, flight cancellations, political unrest, etc, and is unable to find a reasonable alternative means of travel to this event, the participant is given a complete refund. However, TRISTAN BOYER BINNS and BOSTON YOGA ROPES COLLECTIVE is not responsible for any expenses or damages incurred as a result of event/program cancellation including preparation costs, airline tickets, travel documents or other expenses.
Amendments by us: Occasionally, changes may have to be made (e.g., yoga teacher, class times or other arrangements), which we reserve the right to do at any time. If your accommodation has to be changed, we will do our utmost to provide accommodation of a similar rating. If a significant change becomes necessary, we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before your departure.
We reserve the right in any circumstances to cancel a retreat. In particular our retreats require a minimum number of at least 50% of the participants to have booked by 6 months before the start date. If this minimum number is not reached by that date we may cancel and refund the money to you.
Travel Arrangements: All travel arrangements are your responsibility and at your own cost. TRISTAN BOYER BINNS and BOSTON YOGA ROPES COLLECTIVE shall not be held liable for any consequences arising from delays or cancellations in any of the companies you may have made arrangements with, or for any irregularities in your documentation required for travel. Transfers to/from the retreat are at your own cost, unless otherwise specified.
Travel Insurance: Travel insurance is highly recommended. This is for your protection. If you choose to buy insurance we require that your travel insurance covers the activity of this retreat as well as unexpected cancellation, sickness, losses and all the usual risks. We suggest that you include “cancel for any reason” with your policy. You should bring the policy with you in case of an emergency. We recommend you purchase insurance within 1 week after making your first trip payment (ie. flight or retreat reservation) to secure the best price and best coverage. We recommend STA Travel (www.statravel.com) and AAA (www.AAA.com) for worldwide travel insurance.
7. Travel Documents
It is the responsibility of each traveler to obtain all required travel documents including Visas and other travel documents unless otherwise noted. You can contact me for more detailed information regarding your trip requirements. As a general rule, passports should have at least six months of validity when traveling internationally.
