Travel Insurance

Guests must have adequate travel insurance to cover the retreat activities.

Please note, even if you have private health insurance in Greece or your respective Country of residence, it is unlikely that this insurance will cover overseas trips such as the retreats offered by Anandamaya Retreats.

It is your responsibility to organize suitable travel and health insurance. Although we strongly encourage you to do so, you acknowledge that Anandamaya Retreats is not in the business of providing insurance products and cannot be held liable if your failure to arrange suitable insurance coverage leaves you exposed, medically, financially or otherwise.

Booking Changes

If you wish to transfer from one retreat to another or transfer your booking to a third party within the same year, you must notify us at least 30 days prior to the retreat booking date. This will also only be possible if there is space available. Only one transfer is permitted and a fee of €50 per person will apply. If you notify us less than 30 days prior to the retreat booking date the refund policy applicable to cancellations will apply.

 

 

Force Majeure

Anandamaya Retreats shall not be responsible for not fulfilling its contractual obligations to the extent that the failure to fulfil is due to events outside its control, that is force majeure events such as a pandemic, acts of God, fire, flood, cancellation of flights or/and prohibition of sailing due to adverse weather conditions, war, acts of terrorism, riot, civil commotion, governmental actions (excluding regulatory change), labour disputes, and any similar events. In such force majeure events, no refund shall be granted and all payments will be credited in the form of a voucher* valid for one (1) year from the start date of the cancelled retreat.
