The Sideways Experience Payment, Refund and Cancellation Policy
The Sideways Experience does not provide refunds for change of mind. In all cases no refunds will be given for ‘no shows’. Refunds will only be issued to the person who made payment andwill be granted at the discretion of The Sideways Experience management team in extenuating medical or personal circumstances. A refund must be applied for via written communication. We will take into account any supporting documents such as a medical certificate.
For a refund on an SX school, refunds will be granted at the discretion of The Sideways Experience management team in extenuating medical or personal circumstances [and will incur a ¥20,000 administration fee and any bank fees and charges]. Within 30 days or less before departure for a SX school, the deposit will be forfeited to cover SidewaysX commitments. Transferring to another school date is possible at the discretion of SidewaysX management.
