The application is present on all destination pages within the website. This allows you to calculate a price quote for any particular course/ destination at the click of a button, without having to wait ages for a response! You can even book the desired course online directly. Please take note that as it is an application plug-in, you cannot exclude the presence of minor errors. Please do check with us if you’re unsure!

4.Confirmation of Booking and Invoice

The booking confirmation and invoice are issued directly from the School, allowing us to pass on accurate information to our clients. You will normally receive the confirmation within 24/48 hours after reserving your course, subject to: 1) the student completing the online booking form and accepting the terms and conditions of Full-Immersion and of the chosen School; 2) the deposit being paid; and, when required, 3) the School has verified the availability of the package requested by the student.

CHANGES TO BOOKINGS: Any changes to reservations which have already been confirmed are subject to an agency fee between €50 – €150. The amount is to be paid by credit card or PayPal and will be established by Full-Immersion according to the complexity of the changes requested. Reservations are considered confirmed when the student receives the ‘Registration Confirmation’ containing the invoice and confirmation of registration. Any additions or updates made directly on the site must be approved by the management of the school where the English Course has been booked. Any requests for changes, upgrades or additions may not always be accommodated or permitted by the school.  

5.Deposit

The deposit, if required, must be paid online via credit card or Paypal, triggering the reservation request. The deposit is a guarantee of interest and is refunded to you within 24/48 hours after receipt of full payment of the course (via a Full-immersion receipt/ proof of payment). Please note that the deposit is not a payment to Full-Immersion. However, if the student decides to change dates, misses the payment deadline, cancels the reservation or refuses to pay, then the deposit will be used to cover the expenses incurred (please see number 4 for Changes to Bookings).

IMPORTANT: Deposits for “LAST MINUTE” reservations (less than 21 days before the course start date). All bookings made within 21 days of the check-in date are considered “Last Minute” bookings, and once confirmed, they cannot be cancelled without following the cancellation policy of the School you have booked with. The initial deposit for the course is higher for ‘last minute’ bookings and may be retained if you breach the terms and conditions offered by Full-Immersion and the School.

Introduction

One to One online lessons are normally provided by private citizens to private citizens.

Full-immersion works as a “marketing platform” to promote the teachers profiles online, and guarantees that the teachers are suitable for the job. The teachers are not in any way employees of Full-immersion, we just know them in person and promote their services on our platform against a commission that they pay to us.

It is the student’s responsibility to maintain the best possible relation with the teacher, and to get organized to complete the cycle of private studies online in the best possible way.

We will be happy to help the students and the teachers, should any issue arise before, during or after the lessons.

In some special cases, bank transfers are also accepted, but there might me some extras to pay and the time it takes to receive the paymen can be quite long.

4-Last minute bookings

Payments for last minute bookings are to be settled via Credit Card (through PayPal).

5-Amendments

The schedule that is sent to you by your teacher at the time of booking confirmation is the final schedule of your course and it generally cannot be amended.

Any change of schedule must be agreed at least 24 hours in advance with your teacher, who may or may not accept the change. Should the change be unacceptable, the lesson will be lost. 

Any requests for rescheduling a lesson that are received less than 24 hours from the lessons start, will result in the lesson to be canceled.
