A student may be able to claim on their travel insurance for incidents such as these.

    •  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 or YTT, or expecting to need healthcare while abroad, however, unexpected things do happen that can be beyond your control. We therefore require  that you purchase travel insurance to cover any possible eventuality that may occur during your trip – with comprehensive healthcare cover as well as cover for a loss in course fees should you need to curtail or cancel your trip. Depending on the policy and conditions, travel cancellation insurance will pay for some or all course cancellation fees.

    Santosha reserves the right to hold any course, event or retreat at an alternate venue if required to maintain or improve the standard of accommodation or facilities offered. We will notify customers as soon as possible if a change in venue should occur. No refunds or transfer to another event date if accommodation was included in the venue . – if no accommodation was included then you can most certainly transfer to any other course or another person .

    Force Majeure: 

    Santosha is not liable for non-performance caused by events or conditions beyond its control. This provision does not relieve the Customer of its obligation to fulfil payment obligations. Santosha shall not be liable for any need to delay or cancel any course or retreat, when certain circumstances beyond our control arise, making holding the event or course inadvisable, commercially impracticable, illegal, or impossible. These include but are not limited to work stoppages, fires, civil disobedience, riots, rebellions, natural disasters, acts of God, acts of war or terrorism, actions or decrees of governmental bodies, disease or medical epidemics, pandemic or outbreaks, curtailment of transportation facilities preventing or delaying attendance by at least twenty-five percent of event participants, and similar occurrences. If Santosha’s ability to hold an event has been so affected in the ways described above, we will promptly give you written notice via email and use our best efforts to resume the event/course. Upon receipt of such notice, all obligations to hold the event or course shall be immediately suspended for the duration of such Force Majeure Event.  Santosha will offer a credit / transfer of payments made to a future event within 24 months after the cessation of the Force Majeure event. Again, we strongly recommend purchasing travel cancellation insurance to cover such occurrences as we cannot make exceptions to these policies.
