When you hire Vibrant, you will receive our Service Agreement which outlines the process and policies of working together in greater detail. A few items of note taken from this document are outlined here for ease and clarity as we begin working together. Below are our full Terms and Conditions.
Student engagement In order to get the most out of Vibrant’s services and the most out of one’s gap time, we require our clients to be actively engaged and for the gap year planning to be student driven.
Payments and refund We believe it is important to have a good rapport with clients, and that we can work well as a team. It is for this reason that we offer a free 30 minute, no-strings-attached consultation at the start of our relationship. As such, we do not offer refunds to our clients once payment is made. Payments must be made before any services will be rendered, and this payment is non-refundable. We appreciate your understanding. Fees paid to Vibrant do not cover any expenses related to opportunities recommended by Vibrant and are related to our coaching and consulting services only.
Rescheduling policy If you need to reschedule or cancel, you must provide us with AT LEAST 48 hours’ notice. If you cancel with less than 48 hours’ notice or no-show for an appointment, your appointment time will be forfeited, and we will deduct the hour from the hours retained.
Contact hours are defined by the service(s) chosen and the client understands that once those hours have been exhausted, the job of Vibrant Gap Year has been completed. If you wish to continue a relationship with Vibrant Gap Year, we will enter into a separate agreement.
