A deposit of $500 per person is payable in Canadian or American dollars and will hold your space until four months prior to departure, at which time the balance of payment becomes due. Please choose the currency carefully; balance of payment must be provided in the same currency as the deposit. Last-minute reservations are welcome and require full payment within one week in order to confirm space.
We accept the following payment options:
International, secure credit card transactions: PayPal Online Deposits
A PayPal account is not required. We cover PayPal's processing fee for the $500 per person deposit; there is no additional fee for using the Pay Now buttons located below. If you later provide the balance of payment via PayPal, a 5% processing fee is charged. To avoid the 5% fee, please provide your balance of payment by cheque, money order, bank draft, wire transfer or Interac.
We accept Visa, MasterCard & American Express payments by phone for CAD $500 per person deposits.
Phone payments are only for Canadian dollar deposits. For card verification, we require the 3-digit CSC and Canadian billing postal code. Sorry, the phone-in credit card system is not available for balance of payment, or USD transactions. To charge your credit card in USD, please use PayPal.
Cheque, money order or bank draft
We accept Canadian and American funds by cheque, money order and bank draft, payable to Butterfly Tours, or Evolution Guide School, or Gord Pincock. Please contact us; we will hold space for up to one week to allow time for your deposit to arrive by mail. See our mailing address. View postage rates within Canada, or from the USA.
We accept international wire transfers. A $25 surcharge is added to each wire transfer, which helps cover our bank's receiving fee. Please contact us for wire transfer details.
