Terms and Conditions:

  • Deposits are non-refundable, however are transferable to another attendee.
  • Full balance due 45 days before start date of retreat.
  • Cancellation submitted in writing within 30 days of retreat date will be refunded at 50% of total amount (minus deposit).  If I am able to fill your spot with another guest, I will refund the total amount paid (minus deposit). Note: In the rare event that a guest needs to cancel, I will do my best to work with you to find a replacement.
  • Within 14 days of retreat date: no refunds given, no exceptions.

As unexpected events do occur, we encourage you to purchase trip cancellation insurance should you or your group have a medical problem prior to, or while on the retreat. Most travel insurance must be purchased within 14 days of making your reservation. It is your responsibility to read and understand your cancellation policies.  Exceptions cannot be made for any reason, including weather*, injury/illness, or personal emergencies. No refunds or credits for failure to attend or failure to complete the retreat, or for arriving late or leaving early.  We reserve the right to cancel retreats, in which case all money will be refunded. Notification of cancellation will occur at least 1 month prior to retreat start date. Laina Florio Retreats cannot be held responsible for any personal expenses, such as airline tickets due to changes in itineraries or retreat cancellations.

*Weather:  As stated above, we cannot predict how weather may effect flights, therefore trip insurance is recommended.  However, if there is extreme weather (ex: hurricane) whereas it is impossible to travel to the city/resort, we have a clause within each hotel contract to allow refunds for participants who are affected by full cancellations of flights due to weather.
