Cancellation

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.

No refunds are given except in the case of a cancellation by the Mentor.


We all have unique circumstances and life events to deal with. Do approach us if you feel that there are special forces at play to discuss a refund or a voucher for a paid class/course you can not attend.
