Tuscan writing retreat cancellation policy

I wish we didn’t need to have one, but we’ve found from past experience that as we get closer to the date of the event, it gets harder to find people to fill cancellations. To keep our prices as low as they are right now we can’t afford to have empty rooms. So here it is:

The $850 deposit to reserve your space is non-refundable. Final payment is due on May 1. Failure to pay the balance by the due date will result in the cancellation of your reservation. After May 1, the balance is non-refundable unless we can find someone to fill your space.

There are no refunds for leaving the retreat early or arriving late. Please consider travel insurance to protect yourself against changes in your circumstances.

Thanks so much for your understanding.
