We've Got Your Back

Secure Payments

Clients pay up front when they book you for a lesson, so you’ll never worry about collecting cash or getting paid.

Liability Insurance

Stay protected from liability claims up to $10M, with coverage included on every Propel lesson booking.

Cancellation Protection

With a strict 48 hour cancellation / rescheduling policy you’ll never be left high and dry if a client can’t make it.

Common Questions

How does a client book with me?

Clients browse instructor profiles and their hours of availability on our website. They can book as few or as many lessons as they want but they cannot book within 48 hours of a lesson start time.

What if I need to change my availability?

You are welcome to change your availability as often as you like but only if it doesn’t affect previously booked lessons. Cancelling a booked lesson is annoying to clients and hurts your reputation.

What if a client doesn't show up?

Clients pay for the lesson at the time of booking, so if they don't show up, you can go home early or hit the hot tub and wait for your next client. Regardless, you will be paid in full.
