Find here important information regarding payment conditions & payment options with Ticotrotter!



What amount of down payment? Until when the final payment?

With Ticotrotter you can choose the payment schedule:

Traditional:
20% deposit (of the total amount) at time of booking and the remaining amount 14 days prior to arrival.

Afterwards:
After booking a trip, please send us a scanned copy of your passport and pay your trip up to 7 days after your return. A 4 % surcharge applies when choosing this option.

Hybrid forms:
Traditional and afterwards payment methods can be mixed as well. E.g.: Pay 20 % deposit at time of booking, 30% 14 days prior and the rest (50%) after your trip. The surcharge only applies to the amount which will be paid after your return.

Flights need to be paid in full amount at the time of booking.



How long will it take before my payment is (formally) confirmed?

Our accounting department normally registers all received payments on Friday. Thus, it can take up to a week or a little more for your payment to be confirmed. All booking procedures and travel documents are carried out separately from your payment: we make the reservations as soon as we receive your travel confirmation. Your travel documents will be sent to you automatically, even if your final payment is still pending.
It is not necessary to send any payment confirmation to your sales representative, unless your reservation includes booking a flight. Your personal sales executive will inform you about this.

Wie und wo kann ich Geld umtauschen?
Geld umtauschen sollten Sie nur direkt in den Bankfilialen. Hier müssen Sie aber mit längeren Anstehzeiten rechnen. Der Euro kann in Costa Rica auf den Banken sowohl in Dollar als auch in Colones umgetauscht werden. Unsere Empfehlung ist allerdings schon in Deutschland ein paar US $ zu kaufen und diese mitzubringen. Während der Reise können Sie dann am Geldautomaten immer wieder Bargeld abheben. Bitte denken Sie daran, dass je nach Kreditkartengesellschaft unterschiedliche Gebühren für jeden Abhebevorgang anfallen.

Was ist ein faires Trinkeld für Fahrer und Reiseleiter?

Die Fahrer und Reiseleiter freuen sich natürlich sehr über ein Trinkgeld, wenn Sie mit den Leistungen von beiden zufrieden waren. Wir empfehlen pro Tag und Person zwischen 5$ - 20$, je nach Ihrer Zufriedenheit.
