TERMS & CONDITIONS FOR REFRESH + REBOOT RETREAT
Getting To & From Abruzzo – The tour begins in Rome’s Piazza Bologna on Sunday, October 14th at Noon and ends at the same location Saturday, October 20th at Noon. We strongly recommend that you arrive in Rome no later than Saturday, October 13th to ensure that you’ll meet the group on time. Please note that out of consideration for our guests, we will not be able to wait for late arrivals. If you are late, you will need to arrange for alternative transportation to Abruzzo. Any alternative travel arrangements will be at your own additional expense and will not decrease the price of the program.
Payment Schedule & Deposits – A 50% deposit per person (the “Deposit”), payable to Three Little Guys LLC (D/B/A Majella Home Cooking) (“MHC”), of which $500 is non-refundable for administrative fees, is required at the time of the reservation of the program (the “Program”) for each participant (the “Participant”). Final payment must be received by MHC no later than 120 days prior to the first day of the Program.
Health– All Participants must be in good physical health as there will be extensive walking involved in our contemplated touring activities. Although the planned excursions for the program are considered to be of an easy to moderate level of difficulty, we will necessarily be hiking over uneven surfaces and mountainous terrain. Any condition of a Participant that may require physical assistance or special medical attention should be reported to us at the time of your reservation. Appropriate shoes and attire are required and Participants are required to properly outfit themselves for the contemplated touring activities. In addition, Abruzzo has many winding roads and our touring will sometimes require long drives. We have attempted to design the itinerary to break up the length of drives as much as possible, but if you suffer from motion sickness, please bring motion-sickness medication with you. Finally, any food allergies or intolerances must be reported to us at the time of your reservation.
Changes in Itinerary & Costs – MHC and Katie Fogarty Media LLC (together, “MHC/KFM”) are committed to creating an enjoyable Program itinerary. If improvements can be made prior to the commencement of or even during the Program, or if unforeseen conditions make changes necessary, MHC/KFM reserves the right to vary the Program itinerary and/or substitute hotels or accommodations of a reasonably equivalent quality and will not be held responsible for any of these types of changes or occurrences. Individual deviations or additions to or from the scheduled Program itinerary are at the sole expense of the individual Participant. All prices are subject to change without prior notice due to currency fluctuation, fuel prices and/or unforeseen economic circumstances.
Photography – Photographs or, in some cases, videos, of Participants taken during the program may be used for promotional purposes by MHC/KFM and each of the Participants expressly consents to this manner of promotional use when reservations are completed.
Trip Insurance–Though MHC/KFM does not provide insurance coverage, MHC/KFM strongly urges Participants to purchase insurance to cover trip cancellation (including cancellation of the Program at the discretion of MHC/KFM), emergency medical evacuation, lost or damaged baggage, accidents, sickness or otherwise.
Responsibility Clause – In no event will MHC/KFM assume responsibility or liability for any act, error, or omission, or for any injury, loss, accident, delay, or irregularity including death which may occur to a Participant or a Participant’s property during or in relation to the Program, including any injury, loss, accident, delay, or irregularity including death that may result from the act, error, omission, default or even negligence of any subcontractor or other third party. In no event will MHC/KFM be liable or responsible for loss, injury, damages, or expenses to the person or property of a Participant, including, without limitation, any indirect, incidental, consequential, special or punitive damages. The limitation of liability of MHC/KFM shall be regardless of cause or reason for any asserted loss of Participant, including for loss to Participant due to illness, weather, strikes, local laws, hostilities, wars, terrorist acts, acts of nature, or other such causes in connection with the Program. MHC/KFM is not responsible for transportation delays or Program delays and changes, nor for additional expenses or loss of time that may be incurred in connection therewith. In the event it becomes necessary or advisable for the comfort or well-being of the Participants, or for any reason whatsoever, to alter the Program itinerary at any time, without notice to the Participants, MHC/KFM reserves the right to carry out such alterations and will not be held responsible for said alterations. Baggage and personal effects of any Participant shall at all times remain the sole and exclusive responsibility of such Participant. MHC/KFM reserves the right to accept or decline any person as a Participant at any time, or to require any Participant to withdraw from the Program at the expense of said Participant when such an action is determined by MHC/KFM to be in the best interest of the Participant’s health and safety, or the general welfare of the other Participants within the Program.
Cancellation Policy – MHC/KFM strongly advises Participants NOT to purchase airline tickets until you have received confirmation in writing that we have a sufficient number of participants for the program to occur. Under no circumstances shall we be responsible for the reimbursement of any travel-related expenses or cancellation fees related thereto, including but not limited to, airfare or travel insurance. MHC/KFM must strictly adhere to its cancellation policy to offset costs incurred prior to the commencement of the Program, which may include but are not limited to: advance payments to tour operators, hotels and drivers, communication expenses; development/promotional expenses; and the loss of time that might have permitted resale of reserved space. To be effective, any cancellation must be made in writing to email@example.com and will be subject to a $500 non-refundable administrative fee. All refunds are limited to amounts actually received by MHC/KFM. At the time MHC/KFM receives written notification of cancellation, the following cancellation charges will apply: cancellations received between 120 and 91 days prior to the commencement of the Program, 80 percent of the Program cost per Participant shall be refunded less the $500 non-refundable administrative fee; those received between 90 and 61 days prior to the commencement of the Program, 50 percent of the Program cost per Participant shall be refunded less the $500 non-refundable administrative fee; no refunds will be given for cancellations received within 60 days of the commencement of the Program. No partial refunds shall be given for individual deviations from the scheduled Program itinerary, including, but not limited to, missed excursions, tours, meals, transportation or lodging, for any reason. In the case of a cancellation due to insufficient number of Participants, MHC/KFM will attempt to notify all Participants at least 45 days prior to departure. However, MHC/KFM reserves the right to cancel the Program prior to departure for any reason and, in such case, reimbursement of refundable costs of the Program by MHC/KFM shall constitute full settlement with the Participant. MHC/KFM shall not be liable for any airline fees or cancellation penalties incurred by the purchase of a non-refundable ticket. In the unlikely event that a dispute arises between a Participant and MHC/KFM, the following conditions will apply: (a) the dispute will be settled by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in New York, NY; (b) the dispute will be governed by New York Law; (c) the maximum amount of recovery to which a Participant shall be entitled under any and all circumstances will be the sum of all monies actually received from the Participant by MHC/KFM. The Participant agrees that this is a fair and reasonable limitation on the damages, of any sort whatsoever, that a Participant may suffer. Upon payment of the Deposit to MHC/KFM, the Participant agrees to be bound by the above terms and conditions.
