Payment Policy

The credit card that you have registered on your Rain & Lucky account will be charged the amount due on your account on the 1st of each month, from February to December only.

Direct debit is the same amount each month regardless of how many classes are in the month. This includes school holidays, since the payments are averaged out over the full year.

Direct debits to your account will continue until December of the year you selected classes, otherwise notified in writing to hello@rainandlucky.com.

One month’s written notice is required to cancel membership or reduce your number of weekly classes. Your next month’s tuition will be processed if notice is received after the 10th of the month. 

If a payment bounces, we will try again to process the payment. Late fees may be charged. Continued failed payments may result in you/your child being unable to take class.

All fees are strictly non-refundable.

No refunds or credits are given for classes missed.

If government-imposed restrictions or other related circumstances outside of our control require us to close our doors, we will revert to online learning. There will be no refunds or credits towards future fees for absences and/or if government restrictions require us to stop face-to-face learning.

If you find yourself unable to pay for your tuition, please contact hello@rainandlucky.com as soon as possible to discuss your situation.
