International Wire Transfers
We can accept payment for your tours and other services via international wire transfer using the details below. You must add a $35 Wire Payment Fee to the invoice amount when remitting funds (e.g. if you were invoiced US$500, then you should execute a wire transfer of US$535). You are responsible for all transaction and intermediate fees charged by your bank to execute the transfer. We quote all prices in US Dollars; the transfer should be executed in US Dollars so the amount received is exactly the same as the amount invoiced regardless of foreign exchange complications. Any discrepancy between the invoiced and received amounts will be due and payable before your tour can begin.
