Deposit and Cancelation of Full Board Accommodation

As soon as the full board reservation has been confirmed, you will be required to pay an advance of €250,- per weekend / multiple days or a series of weekends (training) for half of the accommodation. An advance of € 500,-  is required for the rental of all accommodation.


Deposit and Cancelation of Work spaces

The cost of hiring a workspace for a single day must be paid in advance.
When reserving a workspace for a series of days, a (non refundable) deposit of 1 day is required. The reservation will be fully confirmed only after the deposit has been received. This amount cannot be refunded if the reservation is cancelled.
This is the only loss the renter will incur in case of cancelation. No percentage of the rent etc. will be charged as is usual elsewhere. The loss to the renter is always limited in this way.

New possibility: one guarantee deposit for all of your events booked
For those renting many days or weekends with us, it is possible to pay one guarantee deposit for all events booked that will stay with us until the teacher asks us to subtract it from the last invoice.
This way the teacher only needs to pay one guarantee deposit and not one for each and every event. In case an event does not take place, the guarantee sum stays with Helios and needs to be paid anew for the remaining events.

Remaining Payment
The total amount for the hire of the workspace(s) and full board should be made payable to the Helios Centre in Heerde at least a week prior to the hire date. See bank details below. The number of guests communicated to us 4 days prior to the beginning of the workshop is the number we buy food for and prepare rooms for. This means that the invoice will be for at least this number or more (if more guests come).

Once the deposit has been paid, we will then publish your activity on the list of activities on the page called ‘Agenda huurders’ on the Helios website along with a link to your website. This service is free of charge the first time and € 40,00 ex VAT after that.
This page is regularly referred in the Helios Newsletter.  We can also publish an announcement of your training in our Newsletter (9000 receipients). The cost is € 40,00 ex BTW per publication.

All prices include VAT.

The person hiring the workshop space in responsible for any damage to the building and/or the furniture that occurs during the time which is accommodation is hired.
