Payment options explained
We accept payment in multiple currencies!
Dealing with international banking can at times be overwhelming but we are here to walk you through the payment process if you need assistance.
When a tour is confirmed, deposits are due. Final invoices are prepared 100 days before tour date or sooner if requested. Final payment is due by 90 days of tour date. Once a final invoice is prepared, price is fixed regardless of changing exchange rates. If a tour is booked within 100 days of tour date, deposit stage will be skipped and final invoice will be prepared.
If a tour is booked within 6 weeks of tour date, deposits will be processed in US dollars via credit card info provided with booking, (incurs 4% processing fee) and final invoice will be prepared immediately in the currency of your choosing.
Payments are accepted in the following currencies:
1. Euros: (Deposit required: €250 per person for tours up to 12 days, and €500 per person for longer tours).
For our international clients, if not part of the European Union, we find the most cost effective method of transacting a Euro payment is by using a money transfer service. We are quite familiar with TransferWise. Most international clients find the process very easy. However, some of our Canadian clients are sometimes asked for document certification as an extra layer of security. (For this reason, we have established a TD Canadian Bank account and accept payment in CAD. You can read more below). Those clients that are part of the European Union can simply transact a wire transfer from their local account to our European account. There are no transfer fees.
You can use your local bank to transact a direct wire transfer but please note that wire fees will be incurred (both outgoing and incoming) so please be informed as you will be responsible for all fees and must include these in the total amount.
Final invoice will be prepared 100 days before tour date. Final payment due 90 days before tour date.
2. US dollars: (Deposits required: $300 per person for tours up to 12 days, and $600 per person for longer tours)
Check in USD (All returned checks for insufficient funds will be subject to $30 return fee)
Bank draft in USD
Credit card transaction (4% fee will apply)
Final invoice will be prepared 100 days before tour date. Price in USD will be based on exchange secured plus 2 cents transaction costs. You can request that your final be prepared earlier but once the Euros are purchased, the price is fixed.
