2. The Company shall give notice within 180 days of the Force Majeure Event to the other party of this agreement, stating the period the occurrence is expected to continue and the recourse of actions the Company intends to employ.

3. Refunds. At the time of notice from the Company of the Force Majeure Event, the Company will assess if any refunds will be issued to the travelers at that time. Any refunds distributed will not exceed 75% of the amount of payments received for the Activities of the travel event thus far. Any payment deemed nonrefundable by the Company, will be treated as a credit. The credit can be used and applied towards future travel events hosted by the Company.

In the case that the Force Majeure Event has ended, but as a result, has caused the travel event to be commercially impracticable for the Company to continue for reasons such as low registration or unanticipated spike of the cost of the Activities or the travel event, the Company will assess the refund policy it will employ and notify the travelers at that time.

In assessing if any refunds will be issued, the Company will consider the following factors: 1) whether the Company has incurred expenses or expended money for the Activities of the travel event; 2) the inflation of the cost of expenses due to the Force Majeure Event; 3) economic disruptions caused by the Force Majeure Event; 4) low registration of the travel event due to the Force Majeure Event; 5) any agreements with third party vendors that the Company is contractually obligated to fulfill notwithstanding the Force Majeure Event, and 6) other financial considerations that may be implicated as of a result of the Force Majeure Event.

4. Discontinuation of Payments. In the case that the Force Majeure Event is expected to cause a cancellation of the travel event, the traveler will not be required to render anymore payments to the Company for the cancelled travel event until after the Force Majeure Event has ended and 30 days after the traveler receives the rescheduled date of the travel event.

The Company represents and warrants that it will provide the Activities using personnel of required skill, experience and qualifications and in a professional and workmanlike manner in accordance with generally recognized industry standards for similar services. Except for this warranty, the Company makes no warranty whatsoever with respect to its services. In the event that I am unsatisfied with the Activities, I understand that the Company may, in its sole discretion, either re-perform its services (or the alleged defective part) or refund the price of the Activities (or the alleged defective part); however, this remedy will be my sole and exclusive remedy and the Company’s entire liability for any breach of the limited warranty described in this Agreement.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT WORKING WITH US

Thank you for the time and effort you put into making this a great experience. This was wonderful and the quality of your business is definitely 5 stars! Thank you!

Rachel

DC, USA

The best part about working with Events by Ashé was that everything is done for you.  Transportation, accommodation, fetes, etc. And there’s still enough free time to enjoy on your own. I liked that we had the schedule and you just show up at the appointed meeting place at the right time. I was also very happy that everyone in the group looked out for each other while we were out at the events. 

Sara

New Jersey, USA

Everything was taken care of so I didn’t have to worry about anything. No wondering where to go, how I was going to get there, how much it cost, where to get my costume, etc. No worries was the name of the game for this trip. It took a lot of stress off.
