FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW IS IT BEST TO GET IN TOUCH?
Our super-efficient Bookings Manager Juratė (pronounced: you-rah-teh) is always quick to respond to enquiries and questions. She will always ask for all of the important information we need.
You are in exceptionally good hands from the moment you get in touch and we are never short of compliments for Juratė’s efficient and friendly communications.
WHAT INFORMATION DO YOU NEED FROM CLIENTS?
By including all of the info below we can deal with enquiries more efficiently:
- Your name (or the name of the client if you are booking for someone else);
- The service that you or the client are interested in; and
- If the enquiry is for a face-to-face course, a selection of dates that you would be available to start the course from.
DO YOU CHARGE TRAVEL/ACCOMMODATION/SUBSISTENCE COSTS?
We can do, it depends on the booking, please see the relevant sections in out Terms & Conditions.
HOW DO I SECURE A BOOKING/SERVICE?
To secure a booking or service with us there are a few options:
- for all services where there is a link to book on the relevant webpage you will have to click on the link and pay for the service in full via our Shop;
- for all services where there is no link to book on the relevant webpage please send an email to email@example.com and our Bookings Manager will send you an invoice for a retainer or full payment, depending on when the service is for. Only when this has been paid in full is your booking confirmed;
- for online courses/tutorials there is a link on the relevant webpage, you’ll have to click on the link and pay for the online course/tutorial in full via our Shop;
- for Online Academy membership there is a “Join Now” button at the bottom of the Join Us page, you’ll have to click on it and it’ll take you to a secure PayPal page where you can set up the monthly membership payment.
Where a retainer has been paid, the amount is deducted from the final amount due. Emailed enquiries for which payment has not been received are not confirmed and therefore the service cannot be guaranteed.
WHAT ARE THE PAYMENT METHODS?
Payments for all services can be made by debit/credit card or PayPal. Bookings/Services are only secured once payments have cleared.
Payments for Online Academy monthly membership should be made via PayPal recurring payments that are set up automatically during the registration process. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you do not have a PayPal account and wish to join the Online Academy as we can then discuss some alternatives.
We accept all major debit/credit cards.
WHAT IS THE CANCELLATION & REFUNDS POLICY?
Unless specified differently on the webpage for the service:
- if we cancel a service that you’ve paid for we’ll refund you in full within 7 days of the cancellation; or
- if you cancel a service that you’ve paid for (excluding gift vouchers and Online Academy membership) via email to email@example.com less than 3 weeks before the start of the service it’s non-refundable. Cancellations received via email before this time will be refunded in full within 7 days of the cancellation.

We can’t be responsible if your internet connection or IT equipment is not of a standard which would enable you to view the online content satisfactorily. This would not be grounds for a refund.
