Our payment schedule for passengers is the same as the requirements for payments to our suppliers. Each deposit and payment that we receive is forwarded to our suppliers, the tour, hotel or bus operator, in order to secure a space on the trip. As our suppliers rules are strict, we clearly indicate to all passengers in our rules and reservations that all payments are non-refundable.
If you would like to pay in full now you can, however it is a requirement that minimum payments are used to secure the spot on the trip.
Unfortunately a deposit is not sufficient for the tour operator to hold a spot until the balance date.
If you would like to wait until the final balance date without further payments we will be forced to change the status of your file to pending. This means you will not have a spot on the trip guaranteed.
The minimum to hold a spot and skip payments to the balance date would be 50% of the total cost.
This is outlined in the Terms & Conditions as below
Payment Due Dates
All of our trips are broken into easy-to-pay monthly installments with the balance payment due three months prior to the departure date. Payment dates are displayed during the online booking process. Registered passengers can find their specific payment schedule under the Payment Info tab of My Profile. All monthly payments are mandatory, failure to make a payment may result in your losing your place on the trip and/or your early booking price. Late payments may also be subject to a late fee. You need to make all payments according to the payment schedule in order to ensure your space on the trip.
