Payment schedules vary greatly depending on the policies of the various services, tour operators, cruise lines, and other suppliers who may be involved in planning your adventure.
Generally speaking, a deposit will be due upon finalization of the itinerary to secure any hotels, cruises, tours, or other services. This amount varies by supplier and/or country, but is typically anywhere from $100 per person to 50% of the total trip cost.
Final payment for your trip will usually be due prior to departure and also varies by supplier and/or country. Most final payments are due 30, 45, 60, or 90 days prior to departure. Some operators require full payment within 180 days, although this is not common. Separately held hotel reservations which may not be part of a priced package are typically payable at check-out.
