You can pay via bank transfer or securely online by debit/credit card or via paypal (you do not need to have your own paypal account for this). Information on wire transfers will be shown on the invoice. In line with other holiday providers a small commission charge (2%) will be added to your invoice towards our extra costs of receiving payments by debit/credit card or paypal.
