RATES AND DISCOUNTS FOR OTHER ACTIVITIES

For other activities such as camps, modules and training courses, the price and possible discount for the activity is mentioned on the site.

INSURANCES

Circus is never without risk. The members of Circusplaneet are insured for personal injury and civil liability through Ethias during the guided activities. Our policy only covers treatments that are reimbursable according to the Riziv nomenclature. For certain treatments there is no intervention (e.g. glasses, fees, osteopathy,…) or the intervention is limited (e.g. dental treatments). The general terms and conditions of the insurance policy can be found here. By registering, you agree not to hold other members of Circusplaneet liable for unintentional circus accidents.

You can download the insurance form that has to be filled in by a doctor (first medical assessment) here. You can send the completed form back to inschrijven@circusplaneet.be or send it to us: Circusplaneet – Drongensesteenweg 146 – 9000 Ghent

CANCEL / UNSUBSCRIBE

You can unsubscribe for annual lessons (27 lessons or more) until just after the second lesson. You only pay an administrative fee of 20 euros for the unsubscription and 7 euros for each lesson that has passed, the remaining part of the subscription fee will be refunded. After the second lesson of a year series, cancellations can only be made for medical reasons (see below). You pay an administration fee of 20 euros and 7 euros per lesson that has already passed. The rest of the paid subscription fee will be refunded.

You can unsubscribe for shorter series of classes (less than 27 lessons) up to one week before the start of the first lesson. You pay an administrative fee of 20 euros. Unsubscribing from one week before the start of the series is only possible for medical reasons (see below). In that case you pay an administration fee of 20 euro and 11 euro per lesson that has already passed. The rest of the already paid subscription fee will be refunded.

Unsubscribing to a camp is possible up to one month before the start of the camp. You only pay an administrative fee of 20 euros. After that you can only unsubscribe for medical reasons (see below). You pay an administrative fee of 20 euros and 25 euros per day started. The rest of the already paid subscription fee will be refunded.

You can unsubscribe for an internship up to one week before the start of the internship. You only pay an administrative fee of 20 euro. You can only unsubscribe in the week before the internship or during the internship for medical reasons. In that case you pay an administrative fee of 20 euro and a proportional amount of the subscription fee. The rest of the already paid subscription fee will be refunded.

Unsubscriptions can be communicated to inschrijven@circusplaneet.be. Immediately give the account number and name of the account holder to which the remaining subscription fee can be refunded.

If you unsubscribe for medical reasons, we ask for a doctor’s certificate explaining why you have to unsubscribe. The certificate may be handed over to the secretariat or sent by post or e-mail.

CIRCUS PLANET CANCELS

Circusplaneet reserves the right to cancel an annual class or internship in case of insufficient subscriptions or force majeure. The subscription fee will then be refunded in full.

If a lesson of a  series of lessons can not take place due to force majeure, we will inform the participants. The participants will not be reimbursed for this and the lesson will not be moved to a later date. Circusplaneet always does its utmost to let the lesson continue (search for a replacement, search for another local, …).

trial lessons

There are no trial lessons for the year classes because there can be unsubscribed until shortly after the second lesson (see cancellation / unsubscribe).

For the shorter spring and autumn series of classes you can follow a trial lesson if there are still enough free places. Registration for a trial lesson is therefore only possible at the earliest 10 days before the start of the series. A trial lesson costs € 20. Sign up for the series and this € 20 will be deducted from the inscription fee, but you will not be able to enjoy any early booking discount.

For short activities (only a few lessons, modules, one-time weekend activities,…) no trial lesson is possible.

 

ATTESTs

If your health insurance fund reimburses part of the inscription fee for a year’s course or camp, you can have the form of the health insurance fund filled in by Circusplaneet. You can give a blank form to the teacher, the secretariat or send an e-mail to inschrijven@circusplaneet.be.

The Circusplaneet camps are tax-deductible for participants under the age of 12. At the start of a camp, Circusplaneet will provide you with a tax certificate to add to your tax return. You have to keep this up to date for a year. We cannot make this up a second time in case of loss.

The weekly lessons are not tax deductible
