Email readings are charged per question or topic. Multiple topics or smaller questions cannot be combined into one question and will be counted as separate topics or questions. If you submit questions or topics in excess of the quantity permitted for the type of email reading you have booked, you will be contacted and asked to either pay the cost of upgrading the reading to cover the excess questions/topics (if an upgrade is available) or to select questions/topics to be eliminated from your reading. Such submissions may cause a delay in receiving your reading back. The Tarot Guide accepts no liability in relation to delays caused. If you request a general life reading, each life area will be classed as a separate topic and you must book the Three Topics/Questions reading. If you book a general life reading, you are required to specify which three life areas you want the reading to focus on (e.g. love, career, finances etc). In the event of a dispute regarding what constitutes a topic or question, the final decision rests with The Tarot Guide. If you complete your payment for an email reading and do not receive it within 15 working days, please check your spam folders and contact [email protected] if you still have not received it. 

The following booking conditions and cancellation policy apply to Skype/WhatsApp/Telephone/Video-call/Audio-call readings:

If you have booked a telephone reading, you must be available to take the call at your scheduled appointment time on the mobile number you provided when booking. If you are unavailable, not logged in or do not answer at your scheduled appointment time, we will make 2 further attempts to contact you within 5 minutes of the first call. If you do not answer by the third attempt, your appointment will be classed as a missed appointment and no refund will be given. If you answer on the second or third attempt, any time missed will be deducted from the time allotted for your appointment. If we cannot contact you due to you providing incorrect contact information when booking, your reading will be classed as a missed appointment and no refund or rescheduling will be offered. Where The Tarot Guide has contacted the client to arrange a Skype/WhatsApp/ Telephone/Video-Call/Audio-Call appointment and the client does not reply or arrange their appointment within 3 months, the booking will be cancelled without refund. If you book a Skype/WhatsApp/Telephone/ Video-Call/Audio-Call reading and do not receive an email from The Tarot Guide within 3 business days to arrange your appointment, please contact [email protected] immediately. Skype/WhatsApp/ Telephone/Video-Call/Audio-Call readings are non-transferable. Skype/WhatsApp/Telephone/Video-Call/Audio-Call readings are done strictly on a one-to-one basis, only one client is permitted per appointment. Any attempt on your part to bring any third party onto the call or allow any third party to join the call will result in the immediate termination of your appointment and the forfeit of your entire fee. 30-minute Skype/ WhatsApp/Telephone/Video-Call/Audio-Call sessions are suitable for one-topic or question readings only. If you book a 30-minute Skype/WhatsApp/Telephone/Video-Call/Audio-Call reading, you are only permitted to ask about one topic OR one question.

No discount or credit will be provided for the time you missed. The Tarot Guide cannot alter appointments at short notice to accommodate late arrivals as this would cause delays and inconvenience for other clients.  

•In-person/ private readings are by appointment only and must be prepaid in full, once an appointment/ session date and time has been agreed, in order to reserve that date and time. 

If your appointment is cancelled due to lateness (as outlined above) or if you are a no-show, you will forfeit the entire advance payment and will not be refunded. Furthermore, if you are a no-show, no further appointments will be given.

If you are a male client, you must specifically advise The Tarot Guide of this when arranging your appointment. Failure to do so and/or falsely confirming you are female in correspondence or on the online booking form, may result in the reading being cancelled. Readings cancelled less than 48 hours before the appointment or on the day of the appointment due to providing false information will be treated as no shows and no refund will be offered. Where false information has been provided but the client advises The Tarot Guide of this more than 48 hours before the appointment is due to start, an alternative reading (such as a Skype/WhatsApp/Telephone/ Video-Call/Audio-Call reading ) may be offered where possible. This is subject to availability and at the sole discretion of the Tarot Guide.
