If you choose to pay by PayPal and you also have E-check, please use E-check to pay the money.
A surcharge of 3% will be applied to the payment by PayPal, or you can choose Wire Transfer which incurs a lower surcharge.
Pay by Credit Card (with Scan/Photo of Authorization Letter via Email)
Authorization by fax is preferred because it is safer. Right now we DO NOT provide online credit card payment. We accept Visa Card, MasterCard, and American Express, but not debit card. Your travel consultant will send the Authorization Form via email for you to print and fill out.
3 easy steps to complete the credit card payment authorization:
Step 1: Fill out the Credit Card Payment Authorization Form with your VALID credit card information (card type, number, card holder's name, billing address and card holder's signature, etc.)
Step 2: Scan or take photos of the completed Credit Card Payment Authorization Form, both sides of your credit card and your passport, then send the digital image file to us via email.
Step 3: After we receive your authorization documents, we will acknowledge the receipt by sending you an email and send the documents to Bank of China in China, where our parent company is located. The bank will help us get your payment from your credit card issuing bank.
As our parent company is located in China, the rules of the Chinese Government do not allow us to charge in foreign currencies. Credit card payments charged in CNY are based upon the prevailing rates in China. Your card issuing bank will debit you in local currency and Indochina Odyssey Tours will have no control on the conversion rate used by your card company. The result is that the amount charged from your credit card might be slightly different from the amount on the credit card authorization form.

We cannot accept credit card payment if you confirm the booking and pay us less than 30 days prior to your scheduled arrival date. In this case the way to pay us is by PayPal.
A surcharge of 3% will be applied to payment by credit cards, or you can choose Wire Transfer which incurs a lower surcharge.
To make sure the scan or photos are legible for the bank to process the authorization, we recommend you use a high-resolution camera to take the photos and email us the original digital image files.
Electronic/Wire Transfer is easy to do and incurs a lower surcharge than PayPal and Credit Card, however, it could take between 5 days to 3 weeks for the payment to reach us. So we cannot accept an Electronic/Wire Transfer for bookings made less than 30 days before arrival. Your travel consultant will send our bank account details to you if you choose to pay this way.
