Ideally payments should be made in full, if you wish to make partial payments please request a Paypal invoice to facilitate this.

SAFETY MESSAGE
A health and safety evaluation of all accommodation is completed at the start of each retreat and is available to view at any time upon request. A first-aider will also be present at each retreat and will make themselves known during the opening meeting. While your health and safety is important to us it is still your responsibility. We expect an medical and food allergy information to be disclosed during booking and no responsibility can be taken for information not given before the commencement of the retreat.

CHILDREN
While we appreciate that many parents of young children could benefit from a retreat we are, regrettably, unable to accommodate anyone under the age of 18. If you feel your child is to young too leave at home then please wait until they are older before you consider joining us.

CANCELLATION
Though our retreat spaces are limited, we will endeavour to treat cancellations sympathetically using the following structure:

Where the attendee cancels within 30 days of making the booking – As long at this is more than 8 weeks before the start of the retreat a full refund will be issued.
Where the attendee cancels after 30 days of making the booking and more than 12 weeks before the start of the retreat – A full refund minus deposit will be issued OR attendee may transfer to another retreat held within 1 calendar year.
Where the attendee cancels after 30 days of making the booking and between 12 and 8 weeks before the retreat – A 50% refund minus deposit will be issued OR attendee may transfer to another retreat held within 1 calendar year.
Where the attendee cancels after 30 days of making the booking and between 8 and 4 weeks before the retreat – A 25% refund minus deposit will be issued OR attendee may transfer to another retreat held within 1 calendar year.
Where the attendee cancels after 30 days of making the booking and less than 4 weeks before the retreat – No refund will be given but attendee may transfer to another retreat held within 1 calendar year.

Cancellation for any reason should be notified to us in writing or by email to the contact details below.

Where Re:Treat Ministries UK has to cancel a retreat all monies paid up to the date of cancellation will be refunded in full.

INSURANCE
In order to attend Re:Treat Ministries UK retreats we recommend that guests have travel insurance. This can be arranged through most travel agents or found online.

COSTS
Costs include, full board accommodation in a twin room shared with other women (or a triple room when accommodation requires it), bible study materials, and small gift bag. Discounts are available for certain volunteer roles on a case by case basis. DISCLAIMER
Re:Treat Ministries UK does not accept liability for theft or damage to personal possessions; personal injuries or medical conditions that develop during or after the holiday; or any costs, cancellations or changes incurred as a result of fire, natural disaster, war or threat of war, industrial action, technical problems with transport, airport closure or any other events beyond our control.

ITINERARY CHANGES
At the time of going to press, all the itinerary items listed will have been confirmed by the respective leader and volunteers. If, for any reason, a change becomes necessary we shall do our utmost to replace them with an item of similar qualities. Wherever possible you will be advised in advance of any alterations.

ADVISORY NOTE
Attendees understand that participating in an Re:Treat Ministries UK retreat is done so entirely at their own risk. That a weekend of bible study and fellowship may lead to a new empowered, relaxed state that may be detrimental to that feeling of being stressed out and unable to cope you arrived with. However this feeling may not last and constant top-ups through daily bible devotion are encouraged. In addition, the experience of drawing closer to God may leave attendees feeling more content with life, more patient with their loved ones and less worried. Again this may only be temporary and bible study and prayer are recommended to maintain.
