What is your cancellation policy?

These are our terms and conditions:
If you cancel more than 100 days before the start of the program, we will refund you 100%, no questions asked.

If you cancel between 99 days and 60 days, you will get 50% credit toward Le Foodist activities to be used within two years from the date of the program you had registered for.

If you cancel 59 days or less before the program we will unfortunately not refund you any money.

In all cases however, if you are able to find people to replace you in the program you were going to attend, we will reimburse you in full for the number of people you will have found provided they actually attend the program.

There will be no exceptions, including in the case of such traumatic events as a death or sudden illness in your family or a terrorist attack somewhere in Europe.

If Le Foodist were to cancel for any other reason than ‘an act of God’ or ‘force majeure’, we would refund you all fees paid to Le Foodist. The costs of any travel arrangements you may have made would however not be reimbursed by Le Foodist. For all refunds and cancellations which fall outside of the responsibility of Le Foodist as defined here, please manage with your personal travel insurance. You can obtain Travel Insurance from your local travel agent, or by searching the web.

How much will it be for my traveling companion who is not interested in taking the classes?

We can offer a 1000 Euros discount for anybody not participating to any of the classes.

Do I get a partial refund if I do not participate in some of the activities, meals or classes?

There will be no partial refund for not participating in some of the classes or activities – whether by choice or because of illness or any external circumstances.

Will I need cash during the week?

When we go to local markets you might find vendors who do not take credit cards, and this is when cash will be handy. However in most locations we will visit you should be able to purchase anything with a credit card.

Will I be able to use any non-Euro currency (GBP, USD, AUS, etc…) during that week?

The short answer is no. Your cheapest way to get Euros once in France will be to withdraw cash at an ATM with your credit/debit card. Be sure you have a four digit pin activated with your credit/debit card to do so. You can withdraw cash either on arrival in Paris, in Tours, or in Langeais. This will be the best exchange rate you will get – rather than changing at tourists booths in the airport or in Paris for example. However, you should be able to pay with credit card in most places – it will only be at the producers market and maybe some specific shops in the Provençal market that it will be necessary to have cash on hand for purchases.

Will and how do I need to pay?

You will need to pay 50% of the amount as a deposit at the time of booking, and the other 50% at the latest 60 days before the start of your week.
All payments are to be made by wire transfer with details we will provide.
