NEXT PAYMENT DUE: OCTOBER 1
The next payment amount per person is $ XXXX .00 AUD
You should have received an email with a link to your online payment portal. Please login to your portal prior to the 1st October to make your 3rd deposit/s. Please make your payment as the full amount and do not break up your payment into smaller installments. We are not able to track smaller installment payments.
We are putting a temporary hold on tour bookings made by us on your behalf. This means that we are not committing your money to any other bookings until further notice. As a result, you can also hold off on making payments to us. The payments that were due to us in April, July and September are now on hold. At this stage, we expect we will need full payment by 1 October. This date may change depending on the demands from our vendors so we reserve the right to make adjustments if necessary.
This time frame allows us to defer decisions about the tour to a time where we can make a better assessment of the risks of travel.
We encourage you to set the money aside so that it remains allocated for your tour. We will continue to remind you to do this so that when the time comes you can then make the payment to us.
This will be used for communication before and while on tour.
