Payment Policies

The first of these payments ("first instalment") must be received by January 31, 2016, and the second payment ("second instalment') is due by March 31, 2016, unless you have prior permission from Provence... Perfectly to pay on a different schedule.

2. We prefer payment via personal check. If you choose to pay by credit or debit card, there will be an additional fee of 2.75% of the charged amount.

Cancellation Policies

1. If you cancel before March 1, 2016 we will refund your deposit less a $250 cancellation fee (per person), and will also refund any installments already paid.

2. If you cancel between March 1 and April 15, 2016, and you have paid the first installment, you will receive a refund of your first installment, but will forfeit your deposit.

3. If you cancel later than April 15, 2016, and have paid the second installment, you will receive a refund of the second installment, but will forfeit the first installment and the deposit.
