To confirm reservations for your tour, we ask for a 20% deposit plus full payment of any plane or train tickets we book for you. Final payment is due 30 days before your departure date. Full payment will be required for any bookings made less than 30 days before your departure date. Once you are ready to put down the deposit, let us know which of the below options you would like to use and we will send you an invoice and details on making the payment:
We accept the following payment methods:
- International Bank Transfer to China: If you would like to transfer us money internationally, we will send you an invoice with our bank details on it. Please let us know if you need the account details in Chinese or English. You will be expected to cover any bank transfer fees. Payment is accepted in other currencies such as USD or Euros. We will receive the payment in the currency you send and then transfer the money into RMB (CNY) according to the rates set by the Bank of China. All payments are settled in RMB.
- Domestic Bank Transfer in China/Bank of China ATM transfer: There are usually very minimal fees involved and we recommend this option if you are living in China. You can either make a transfer from your account to our Bank of China account or also go to a Bank of China ATM and transfer the money that way. In either case, we will send you the invoice and details in Chinese and English along with instructions if needed.
- TransferWise: A simple and easy method to transfer money internationally. Fees are usually lower than most banks. Only certain countries are support for payments to CNY, but the list includes North America, Australia, New Zealand, and most European countries. For a full list, click here
