We offer a variety of ways of paying us for a trip, please discuss to find out which method is both most convenient and cheapest.
In order of preference:
- credit card payment through PayPal
- bank transfer (but more expensive; send 50% or full payment to save on fees).
- a bank transfer (all fees born by you)
- cash on arrival (pay a 50% deposit to carry less cash)
- pay by credit card but there is an extra 3.9% charge
(we work on tight margins, and the processing charge is substantial).
Additional hotel nights
These can be paid up front or alternatively locally in cash hard currency or local currency.
Paying a trip deposit
So you are ready to pay a deposit?
Before you pay us, first you should have:
+ been in contact with us
+ booked your international flights (and domestic flights to Leh/Lhasa, if applicable)
+ signed the Acknowledgement of Risk, Waiver and Release
+ filled in the Contract and Booking form
+ booked travel insurance
OK, so you are ready...
What if I book then want to cancel?
For our trips we take a US$750 (sometimes US$1000) deposit covered by the fine print in the Contract and booking form:
"If you cancel at least 21 days prior to the trip start you lose the deposit amount. We will refund any other money paid."
We use PayPal to handle credit card payments, you are taken to PayPal's secure payment site (and please excuse the slightly weird layout below).
Need to check any details?
PayPal accepts most credit cards.
Note the 3.9% should be included as a "tax", in the system below.
THANKS! We look forward to meeting you.
