Cancellation, Rescheduling & Refunds

  • Cancellations
    • A minimum of 7 days (168 hours) notice must be given to cancel your booking or you will lose your session payment.

  • Rescheduling
    • You may reschedule your appointment at any time up to 7 days (168 hours) prior, but not less than 48 business hours, to your booking.
    • For less than 7 days, there is an admin re-booking fee of £50 for Workshops or £25 for 1-2-1 Sessions.
    • Demo Packs cannot be rescheduled if you are less than 7 days from the booked date.
    • However, any rescheduling request within 48 business hours (Mon-Fri) of your booking will, unfortunately, result in any payments made being forfeit as we won’t be able to fill your previous booking.
    • Rescheduling fees must be paid within one week.
    • If no rescheduling payment is made, you will forfeit any payments made and your session will be cancelled.
    • A Rescheduling request cannot be open ended – a new date must be provided within 3 days of the initial request otherwise it will be deemed as a Cancelation.
    • Only one reschedule per booking. More than one Reschedule will result in your booking being cancelled until a Rescheduling fee for 25% of your full/undiscounted session value is paid.
    • If a pack of 121s is bought and only part used there will be no refund available for the remaining sessions.
  • Refunds
    • You may request a full refund within 14 days of making your initial purchase.
    • Any refund requests after this period will incur an admin charge of 20% of your full session value which will be deducted from the refund made. You will be refunded 80% of your session value as a credit note for any future Showreel booking. This credit will be valid for 6 months.
    • If you ask for a refund with the Voice Over Journey package, no admin charge will apply if you do this within one week of your Intro Workshop and you will receive a cash refund. Thereafter, the 20% admin charge will apply and you will get an 80% credit note valid for 6 months for future Showreel bookings.
    • No refunds will be given 7 days or less to your booking.
    • No refund will be given after your first appointment reschedule.
    • Any refunds given will be net of any transaction fees we have incurred, where applicable.
