Frequently Asked Questions

We want to make your experience with us as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. To help achieve this, we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions that may be useful to you when booking and attending one of our seminars. Of course, if you have a question that is not addressed here, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to welcoming you to one of our seminars soon. Please contact us should you require any further details.


Registration & Payment

How do I register for your seminars?

We accept registrations by fax, email and mail. At this point an invoice and detailed joining instructions will be sent to you. Please note that by registering you are confirming your place on the seminar. Full payment is required before the seminar starts.


Are there any deadlines for registration?

We encourage delegates to book as early as possible in order to avoid disappointment and to allow us sufficient time for administration. We advise you to send in your registrations 2 weeks before the start date of the seminar - a late booking fee will be imposed on registrations received within 14 days of the seminar date.


What does the seminar fee include?

The seminar fee includes tuition, hardcopy materials, lunch and refreshments. Unless specified, the seminar fee does not include accommodation.


How can payment be made, and in what currencies?

Payment can be made by the following methods:

  • Telegraphic transfer
  • Cheque or banker's draft (for Malaysia-based clients only)
  • Credit card (please contact us for more information)

We do not accept payment in cash. Payment can be made in most major currencies.


When do I need to pay?

We require payment to be made as soon as the seminar invoice is issued. If payment cannot be made immediately we will ask for a credit card number and authorization as guarantee. A penalty equivalent to 3% of outstanding balance will be imposed per month on all late payments.

Please note all telegraphic transfer fees, taxes and levies (domestic or otherwise) shall be borne by the sponsoring organization.


Cancellation & Refund Policy

What if REDmoney cancels the seminar?

Unfortunately seminar cancellations do sometimes occur. Should this happen we will refund your money in full unless you want it to be transferred to another seminar date of your choice. Should REDmoney cancel your seminar, we are liable to refunding only the cost of the seminar and no other costs.


What is your booking, cancellation and transfer policy?

We try and be as fair as possible with cancellations and refunds as we realize cancellations are sometimes unavoidable. Our booking and cancellation policy is as follows:

By completing and sending us your registration form you are confirming delegate places on the seminar. If delegates cannot attend the seminar replacement participants are always welcome. Otherwise delegates must request in writing (letter, fax or email) to cancel registration/s or transfer to a different seminar at least 21 days before the seminar start date to be eligible for a refund, less a 5% administration fee. Delegates who cancel within 21 days of the seminar start date, or who do not attend, are liable to pay the full seminar fee and no refunds will be given. Instead fees will be converted to a REDmoney Seminar voucher equivalent to the original fee, less a 15% administration charge. This voucher is transferable within your organization and must be redeemed within one year of issue or become void. If a seminar is postponed for whatever reason delegate bookings will be automatically transferred to the new seminar date. Delegates who wish to transfer to a different seminar will be subject to the same terms as above and charged the difference in seminar fees. No refunds or seminar vouchers will be issued for a no-show.

Please contact us directly should you require further details on our cancellation policy.


Can I send replacement delegates?

Yes, of course. This is often the best alternative to a cancellation. Please contact us and provide details of the new delegate.

Important: Some of our UAE-based seminars are governed by a different Booking, Payment and Cancellation Policy. Please see individual seminar pages/brochures or contact us directly for more details.



Do you offer any discounts?

Yes. Why not take advantage of our early bird discounts? We also offer attractive additional discounts for multiple delegate bookings– please contact us directly or see specific seminar brochures for more details.


Travel & Accommodation

Where are your seminars held?

To ensure your comfort and convenience, our seminars are held in 4-5 star hotels or similarly equipped conference facilities. As far often as possible the seminar venue will be in the central business district of the city the seminar is held in.


Can you help me book accommodation?

If the seminar is held at a hotel we have made reserving accommodation here as easy as possible. We have also negotiated special rates for you. So please contact the seminar venue directly to make bookings, whilst making reference to us. Our courteous and friendly staff can also advise you of alternative hotels nearby to the seminar venue, but will not be able to make bookings for you.


Can you help me with visa applications?

We are sorry that we cannot make visa applications on your behalf. However, upon receipt of payment we will be happy to issue you with an invitation letter should you require one.
