For individual reservations
we require full payment at least 14 days before arrival of the client.
For group reservations
we request a 50% deposit for all the services included in the itinerary, 60 days before the arrival of the group and the payment of the remainder at least 30 days before the arrival. Some other policies may apply according to properties included in the trip program.
Due to the high occupancy of hotel rooms during some dates, these properties demand us eventually mandatory prepayments instead of written warranties. Therefore, our sales executives will inform on each confirmed itinerary about mandatory prepayments, the total amount to be prepaid and the deadline for us to receive the money in our account. In case any mandatory prepayment is delayed, Travel Excellence will NOT be held responsible for any automatic cancellation of these services. This policy is an exception to our regular payment policies as it depends exclusively to the hotels, reservation dates, number and category of rooms booked for each itinerary.
Please send your payments following the next steps:
1. Wire transfer charges must be paid by the company sending the money to Travel Excellence. When calculating the amount to be paid, please add your local bank transfer fee.

Travel Excellence has the right to cancel all services due to lack of payment. All services must be 100% prepaid before date of the first service booked according to our payment policies.
If for any special reason there is a pending balance, which cannot be paid before the date of the first confirmed service, Travel Excellence will send a credit card authorization form, which the client will filled out and sign. This form must be sent to us along with a copy of the credit card (both sides) and a copy of the passport of the person that owns the credit card. Once Travel Excellence receives these documents, the pending balance will be charged to the credit card.
Travel Excellence makes known that it is only an intermediary between the passenger and the companies which provide the services in the itineraries, such as hotels, transportation companies, restaurants, local airlines, among others.
All the providers are selected carefully and fulfill the necessary requirements to provide the services, having established records for being consolidated and efficient businesses. As with Travel Excellence, they all have full insurance coverage.
Travel Excellence will not assume additional expenses due to strikes, earthquakes, weather conditions, accidents, the condition of the highways and roads, or forces beyond our control, and reserve the right to change or cancel any tour or service without previous notice, or to use the services of other affiliated companies if necessary.
