Bookings and Refunds:

Payment in full is required at the time of pre-booking to secure a reservation (unless otherwise arranged).

In the event a deposit has been taken to secure a reservation, the remainder of the balance must be paid a minimum of 25 days prior to the commencement of the lessons. We reserve the right to amend this deadline in the event we receive an enquiry from another client that clashes with your reservation. In this event we will make contact with you to obtain the remainder of the payment. If payment is not made then we have the right to re-sell your reservation, any deposit paid will be refunded in line with our standard refund terms and conditions.

In the event of cancellation reimbursement will be calculated as a percentage of the total cost of all lessons booked, as follows:
