When you confirm your trip with Edventure Travel, a deposit must be paid equal to 15% of the total agreed travel sum and which amounts to at least US $ 100 per traveler, unless stated otherwise in the quotation from Edventure Travel. In the case of domestic flights booked by Edventure Travel, a payment of 100% of this amount will be charged on top of the 15% deposit.
Edventure Travel must receive the remainder of the travel sum no later than six weeks before the day of departure (in the case you have arranged your own transport, before the arrival date of your first accomodation booked by Edventure Travel).
When payments are delayed, the traveler is in default. He is informed by Edventure Travel by telephone and / or in by email and then still can pay the outstanding amount within 7 working days. If payment is not forthcoming then the travel confirmation is being canceled on the day of default. Edventure Travel has the right to charge cancellation costs.
If your trip is confirmed within 6 weeks before the day of departure, the entire travel sum must be paid immediately.
