Our Cancellation Policy
Bandster’s usual Cancellation Policy
A minimum 50% non-refundable deposit is required to book any service, vendor or supplier. Bandster guarantees that the service, vendor or supplier is booked and will provide the specified service for the specified time and date.
Bandster’s Temporary Cancellation Policy - Active from 15 March 2020
In light of developments due to the COVID-19 pandemic, including the government periodically imposing certain restrictions including travel restrictions and movement restrictions that have a big impact on the hospitality industry:
All bookings will require a minimum of 50% deposit (or otherwise specified) to book any services
If you cancel of your own volition, then the deposit is non-refundable
If the event cannot take place due to government imposed restrictions (which include travel restrictions, restrictions on the number of guests of gatherings, businesses being forced to close, employees being sent home, people being quarantined and other lock-down measures that force the event to not take place), then you we will give you the option of rescheduling without losing your deposit (subject to the availability of the vendors and suppliers). In some cases, with the exception of a venue or catering, if the same vendor is not available on your rescheduled date, then a different vendor will be offered of a similar calibre. Please note: although we will endeavour to find a replacement at the same price, we cannot guarantee it, and there may be a price difference.
There may be some cases where a service, vendor or supplier is unable to change the date. In these cases, we will inform you of the exact situation before you book.
There are some vendors who will not return the deposit if the event is cancelled, even if the cancellation is due to no fault of your own. We will let you know at the time of booking of the specific supplier's cancellation policy.
We are following the directives given by the the following ministries of the Cyprus Government: Foreign Ministry, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Interior and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Our Commitment to our Clients
Our commitment to you, our clients is to adapt as the situation changes and to always offer a service that is fair to both you the client, and to our service providers, suppliers and vendors.
