As a portal linked to hundreds of locations providing a marketplace for activities, Core Direction provides an on demand system for class and activity booking.
Packages & Memberships are stored in your wallet, show your remaining sessions and the expiry date of purchases.

Select the session package or membership (Pay special attention to the expiry date) and confirm booking. (Discounts apply to corporate accounts)
If you have a package for the selected location, the system will automatically complete the booking. If not, checkout directly if you have a card entered into the system or add a card if you don't or want to use an alternate card to that used previously.
Activity Booking & Cancelation?
Core Direction provides a standard booking and cancelation policy across all listed activities. All app users are requested and advised to cancel bookings which they can not make to avoid penalty charges and to allow other clients to claim available booking slots.
Booking - Booking can be made up until the start time of any listing as long as slots remain available. If an activity no longer has available slots, it will no longer show.
Cancelation Period - Core Direction uses a standard cancelation period of 18 hours across all activity listings
Early Cancelation - Users can cancel any booking 18 hours or more in advance of the activity start time with no charge and the booked activity credit being added to the respective package.
Late Cancelation - Users that cancel less than 18 hours before the activity start time with lose the session from the respective package.
No-Show Bookings - Users that fail to arrive for an activity booking will lose the session from the respective package.
Unlimited Membership Cancelation - In the case of unlimited memberships, late cancellations or booking-no-show will be charged at the cost of a 1 PASS booking for the respective booking.
Activity Check-in is extremely important as it will both award you with points and ensure you do not get penalty charges for no show. Check-in can be done in two ways.
Check-in with your app when you arrive at your activity location by selecting "+" on the home screen and then "Check-in to Local Activities".
(Special note that the app does automatically check you in if you open the app at the location and are within 1 hour of your activity start time. If you do not see your booking you have probably already been checked in and can check on your calendar where your activity booking will show and a marked "Checked-in" next to it)
Ask the front of house or instructor at the venue to check you in on the Core Direction management system.
