Our monthly payment schedule is both for the travelers' assistance as well as for our suppliers. Deposits are required to our tour operators, hotels, and bus/flight suppliers throughout the year to guarantee the space. In order to secure your spot with these suppliers, payments must be made each month.
If you would like to pay in full now you can, OR you can follow the monthly payment schedule until your final balance date. The monthly payment amount is calculated based on our needed installment payments with our suppliers.
If you wish to wait until the final balance date to pay for your entire trip, then unfortunately we will be forced to change the status of your booking to Pending which means you will not have a spot guaranteed on the trip.
If the trip has been changed to Waitlist status, then you will only be able to re-join the trip based on availability with our suppliers.
The minimum to hold a spot and allow you to skip monthly payments until the balance date would be 50% of the total trip cost.
