Cancellation policy

ESGAR offers the possibility of ensuring the registration with our partner “Europäische Reiseversicherung”. Thus, ESGAR will not refund any amount after a cancellation of registration itself. All requests have to be issued to the “Europäische Reiseversicherung” directly. Refunds will be given within the terms and conditions of the “Europäische Reiseversicherung”.
All cancellations have to be made in writing (e-mail, fax or letter) to the Central ESGAR Office and confirmed.

By the course organiser: in case the minimum number of participants (less than 50 % of the expected number) has not been reached, ESGAR reserves the right to cancel a course at the latest 4 weeks prior its beginning. Registration fees will be refunded in full.


Participants have the opportunity to take out insurance for the registration fee only. This insurance applies in case of an unforeseen cancellation of participation at the ESGAR CTC Workshop and can be taken out together with your online registration. The cancellation insurance offered by Europäische Reiseversicherung covers up to 100 % of your registration fees in the event of your cancellation for any cause provided for in the insurance terms (Insurance Form). Please read the insured reasons for cancellation carefully! In addition, Europäische Reiseversicherung will refund your registration fee for any days of the Congress not used by you when you are unable to finish the Congress due to an insured event.

The Netherlands' third-largest city, Den Haag, is a stately, regal place filled with embassies and mansions, green boulevards and parks, a refined culinary scene, a clutch of fine museums and a sybaritic cafe culture. Officially known as ’s-Gravenhage (the Count's Hedge), Den Haag is the Dutch seat of government and home to the royal family. Prior to 1806, Den Haag was the Dutch capital. In the 20th century Den Haag became the home of several international legal entities, including the UN's International Court of Justice. This is also where foreign embassies in the Netherlands are based, giving the city a significant international community of expats. The heart of the city contains most of the historic architecture from the medieval, renaissance, and Baroque periods and is easily accessible on foot.
