Terms of service
The Organizer reserves the right to cancel or withdraw from a contract where it has good reason to do so. Important reasons, in particular, are force majeure, an insufficient number of participants, illness of the event leader, as well as other circumstances beyond the control of the Organizer.
The Organizer will provide notification of the cancellation immediately upon knowledge of the reason, but no later than two weeks before the starting date of the event. Pre-paid travel or seminar fees will be refunded in full within 3 weeks.
Further claims on the part of participants, in particular claims for refund of travel expenses or loss of earnings, will not be reimbursed. However, this shall not affect any claims arising from the result of intentional or gross negligence from the part of the Organizer.
In general, it is advisable to take out a private seminar or travel cancellation insurance.
If a participant declares his cancellation in writing before the starting date of the event, the following costs shall apply:
1.) For Travel Tours:
The Organizer reserves the right to cancel or withdraw from a contract where it has good reason to do so. Important reasons, in particular, are force majeure, an insufficient number of participants (at least 7 participants), illness of the event leader, as well as other circumstances beyond the control of the Organizer.
A participant can withdraw from the trip at any time before the start of the trip. The notification of cancellation must be made in writing. The cancellation enters into effect upon receipt of the notification of cancellation by Spiritbalance.
If the participant withdraws from the travel contract or does not start the trip, without cancelling the travel contract, Spiritbalance may demand reasonable compensation for the travel arrangements and / or incurred expenses. This also applies particularly to a cancellation before receipt of the booking confirmation.
The following cancellation charges apply:
- Up to 180 days before departure, 25% of the travel price will be charged.
- Up to 60 days before departure, 50% of the travel price will be charged.
- Up to 30 days before departure, 75% of the travel price will be charged.
- Less than 30 days before departure or failure to show, 100% of the travel price will be charged.
Cancellation charges are also applied if a participant does not arrive for the scheduled time of departure at the designated airport / place of departure, despite being given the correct information from Spiritbalance; or if he/she can not travel on the tour due to insufficient travel documents (i.e. passport, visas, health requirements). If the participant cancels after the tour has commenced, without reasons of force majeure or the fault of Spiritbalance, the full travel costs are charged.
A replacement participant can be designated at any time, provided that the Organizer is informed in writing at least 30 days before the tour departure date.
2.) For Seminars & Darkness Retreats:
A participant can cancel attending a seminar at any time before the start of the event. The cancellation must be made in writing. The cancellation comes into effect once the declaration of cancellation has been received by Spiritbalance.
If a participant cancels in writing before the start of the event, or if he does not attend the seminar without cancelling the seminar contract, Spiritbalance can demand a reasonable compensation for the expenses incurred. This also applies, in particular, to a cancellation before receipt of the booking confirmation.
The following cancellation charges apply:
- Up to 180 days before the seminar begins, 25% of the seminar fee is due.
- Up to 60 days before the seminar begins, 50% of the seminar fee is due.
- Up to 30 days before the seminar begins, 75% of the seminar fee is due.
- Less than 30 days before the seminar begins or failure to attend, 100% of the seminar fee is due.
If the participant withdraws from the seminar which has already taken place, without reasons of force majeure or Spiritbalance being responsible for the abatement, the full seminar fee is due.
