Refunds/Transfers/Instalments

At F3 Events we want to allow all participants the opportunity to still take part in an event in the future if they are not able to attend the initial chosen event for some reason or another.

All these amendments incur an internal cost to the events business, and the reason for applying the transfer/ deferral fee.  We are one of only a hand full of companies that allow this to take place and would rather participants have an opportunity, up until a point when we are not able to make any changes, to make a future event possible.
