PAL DEPOSIT POLICY
We understand that life can sometimes get in the way of your travel plans and sometimes your trips need to be delayed. That's why we've established a flexibility plan designed to ensure that if you need to cancel or delay your PAL event at any time, you’ll be able to find another time to take your next event within the Plein Air Liaison network, and there's no expiration date. Other schools charge cancelation fees even when giving plenty of notice. We don't ask questions and we don't charge cancelation fees. But, we do hold on to your deposit.
YOUR DEPOSIT IS GOOD FOR A LIFETIME
PAL Deposits offer any of our members forced to delay a departure to retain their initial deposit for use at a later date at no extra charge—and with no questions asked. The PAL Deposit policy allows you to save your initial deposit (one per person, per confirmed class, mini-workshop, workshop, workshop tour, lecture or event) for an unlimited time. It's our commitment to do the right thing by our members and ensure you can still reserve another Plein Air Liaison event if your plans have to change.
IMAGINE THE POSSIBILITIES
We also realize that your preferences can change over time, so your PAL Deposit can be used on any future Plein Air Liaison event and is not limited to the specific event on your original reservations. Use your PAL Deposit to select that special event that suits your interests when you plan your next plein air adventure—maybe you’ll choose to go on a plein air wine-tasting tour with us in the Napa Valley, attend a lecture, a workshop or museum hop around France or Italy—no matter the preferred adventure, we are sure to have something that suits your fancy!
Under our policy, PAL Deposits are also transferable. That means you can transfer your initial deposit to another creative individual of your choice at no additional charge—is there any better way to give the gift of a Plein Air Liaison event?
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PAL DEPOSITS:
You will be issued one *Lifetime PAL Deposit per canceled Plein Air Liaison event and per person confirmed with the event, to the value of the deposit made on that event.
Lifetime PAL Deposits may not apply for events that have been closed due to max enrollment nor events canceled by low enrollment or force majeure. If an event has been closed and you cancel within 30 days (or within 60 days for Workshop Tours), your lifetime PAL deposit cannot be used on another event and is non-refundable unless you find someone to replace you in the event. In events that have been canceled by Plein air Liaison, you'll receive a full refund of all monies paid.
PAL Deposits cannot be combined and are limited to one per event booked per person.
If the value of the PAL Deposit exceeds the total value of the per person price of the new event, there will be no credit or refund of the difference.
The value of the PAL Deposit is limited to the amount of the original deposit, such that if the deposit requirements of the new event being reserved are higher than this amount, then the difference must be paid in order to confirm the reservation.
Private Groups & Customized Plein Air Adventure Tours may be exempt from Lifetime PAL Deposits.
You can only use your Lifetime PAL Deposit once. If you cancel a second time, having used your PAL Deposit to confirm your 2nd event, your original PAL Deposit cannot be redeemed.
Lifetime PAL Deposits, nor any portion of them, are not refundable in cash - but you can use your PAL Deposit to confirm your next event reservation with us with no cash down, with the exception of where the required deposit on the new event exceeds the value of the original deposit.
When you're ready to reserve another adventure with us simply use your Lifetime PAL Deposit to confirm your event.
*Applies to the “deposit” value of your payment only. See Plein Air Liaison terms and conditions for “deposit” amounts. All other permit and final payment amounts subject to Plein Air Liaison most recent terms and conditions. Not redeemable with any other offer, discount or promotion.
Transfer of deposit as a gift valid on new bookings only.
