Is the payment due all at once & are credit cards accepted?

A second deposit of $1000 will be due within two weeks after you sign up and pay the first deposit of $500. At that time, you will also be sent a detailed invoice customized to your trip and your enrollment date. We accept most major credit cards, PayPal, check, or bank transfer.

The final program payment will be due on April 1, 2015. If you would like to request a customized payment plan, please contact us.
