THERAPIES Why we do not allow unauthorised people to carry out treatments-
We enlist professional persons to style hair, apply make-up, varnish nails, spray tan or whiten teeth etc, because the have adequate public liability insurance (if an occasion arose, the client would claim from the company conducting the work), are fully qualified and declare all income to the relevant authorities.
If a non-qualified person(s) or anyone not engaged by Face of Europe and the World (FOE&W) conducts any kind of the above and the client does not approve of the work, they will most likely complain to FOE&W, which may seem correct to them, however, is in fact totally unfair. The person(s) who have had the unsatisfactory work assume that we have condoned the therapist and may try to hold FOE&W responsible. If this occurred the complaint would be referred to the unauthorised person(s) and they would have to deal with the issue(s).
When people have attempted to carry out treatments before, they have not had the decency to seek permission and this will not be allowed to happen.
FOE&W is not being mean or unreasonable, there are legal implications and this is not thought about by the non-engaged person(s). As non-business minded people, this adds to the point that they do not think before they act or offer services.
TRAVEL - How do we get to Disney? We travel by Coach and Eurotunnel, in certain circumstances we may travel by the Channel Ferry, Coach Trip takes approx 3.5 to 4 hours depending on traffic, we stop half way for a 20 min comfort break. You must travel on tyour allocated coach because you MUST travel on the he SAME coach as your luggage
VISA If you live outside of the EU you may require a visa to travel to England & France, Please remember France & England are different Countries and therefore you need to check with your consulate to see what paperwork you need to travel, this is your responsibility and IF you do not have the correct paperwork and cannot travel we cannot be responsible for your error.
