TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Terms and Conditions

You are booking with Enjoying Ecuador Travel. If you make a booking with us, you are subject to the following conditions. Please read these terms and conditions carefully, because by making a booking you confirm that you have read and agreed to these conditions.

1. PAYMENT AND CONFIRMATION OF YOUR BOOKING
To confirm your booking, Enjoying Ecuador Travel requires a 30% deposit of the total tour amount. Final payment is required 60 days prior departure. If your booking is made within 60 days before the start of your tour, we require full payment. If Enjoying Ecuador Travel does not receive final payment by the specified date, the company reserves the right to cancel your booking. Tickets and vouchers will never be issued unless full payment is received.
Payment options:
• Bank transfer to our Ecuadorian bank account. We charge a USD 35 surcharge to cover expenses that the bank will charge us for receiving your payment.
• PayPal, which is the only way for us to receive your credit card payment. For payments through PayPal we have to charge a surcharge of 7%. This is the amount PayPal charges us to receive your payment.
• US Bank Check. We can just accept US Bank Checks when booking is made more than 60 days before the tour, since it takes a couple of weeks before the check arrives to Ecuador and another couple of weeks before the check gets cashed.
• Western Union or MoneyGram. You can send us payments through both Western Union and MoneyGram.
• If you are already in Ecuador you can deposit the money directly in our bank account or pay in cash.

2. CANCELLATION POLICY
Cancellations have to be made in writing and will only be effective once Enjoying Ecuador Travel is in receipt of the written document.

• If the cancellation is received 91 days or more in advance of the trip, the initial 30% deposit will be refunded less a charge of USD 200.00 for administrative services and any bank costs charged to us for refunding the money.
• If the cancellation is received between 61 and 90 days before the start of the trip, the client will forfeit 100% of the initial 30% deposit.
• If the cancellation is received less than 60 days before the start of the trip, the client will forfeit 100% of the total tour amount.

Above conditions apply for all direct operated tours by Enjoying Ecuador Travel. In case of any bookings for Galapagos cruises or jungle lodges conditions may vary.
