Refund / Cancellation Policy – For Class Cancellations by Pilates Guru
Clients will be notified in advance, when possible, of any class cancellations and credited accordingly.
You can reschedule sessions, but you must modify your online booking or give PG 24 hours’ notice. Failure to reschedule a session within 24 hours of its start time may result in you being charged for the session or losing your Class Pass. You can reschedule sessions via your PG online booking account (www.pilatesguru.co.uk) or by telephoning/texting/emailing/Facebook Messaging Pilates Guru.
If you have not already paid for the session, you will be charged at the next session or invoiced.
No further sessions will be conducted until the outstanding payment is received. Additionally, reserved time slots may be lost if payment is not made in a timely manner.
Class Bookings & Rescheduling
Payment for all classes must be received prior to or on the scheduled class date. Once payment has been taken there are no refunds or credits for missed sessions.
Any ‘no-shows’ will be charged or lose their purchased class pass (If payment has not been received prior, an invoice will be generated or you can pay for 2 classes the following week/class)
Once you book your class, class cancellation is not possible, only the reschedule of a class or private session. As class numbers are limited, once you book your place it is reserved and no longer available to others.
You may reschedule as to another slot either in the same week or another week, providing there is more than 24 hours before your class start time. This can be done via the booking platform.
If a change in your circumstances are completely out of your control, and you’re unable to make your booked session with less than 24 hours until the start time – you may reschedule your class to another class in the SAME week only – this must be actioned by contacting Pilates Guru… The online booking system will not allow you to action this.
Pilates Guru has a 24hr reschedule policy on ALL sessions. If you miss a session without notice you will be charged for the session or lose your class pass. It is the responsibility of the student to use all sessions on a pass within the expiry date; all sessions are subject to availability.
A class pass (or part thereof) is NOT transferable to payment passes for private sessions.
Class Passes are subject to their valid-to dates. Passes can only be extended beyond their expiry date if the instructor cancels sessions or in exceptional student circumstances, discussed on a 1-2-1 basis.
