To book your tour, we ask for a 20% deposit plus full payment of any plane or train tickets we book. 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.
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 and your bank should let you know these costs upfront. You can make the payment 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.
- WeChat Pay: This is another great option for those living in China. We will send you our WeChat account details and then you can directly send the money to us that way.
- Credit card payment online via Paypal: If you would like to pay online with a credit card or another accepted payment option through Paypal, we will email you the Paypal invoice. Paypal also charges a 5% service fee which the traveler is required to pay. You can make the payment in other currencies but the final amount will be settled in RMB according to Bank of China’s daily cash buying rates.
