Congratulations! This is the first step in arranging the active adventure of your dreams! Our secure online reservations form is a great way to send us your payment information outside of our office hours. This form will be sent directly to our reservations team who will carefully process your payment manually. You will always receive a personalized payment confirmation email indicating the dollar amount charged. For European trip payments, we use the daily Euro exchange rate from Commonwealth Foreign Exchange to determine the exact US dollar amount of your payment. Your credit card will always be charged in US Dollars. We do not have the ability to charge in other currencies.
If you have any questions, or would like to speak with someone before making your reservation, please give us a call during our office hours: Monday-Friday from 9am – 1pm MST at 1-800-648-8488. Or you can send us an email (monitored regularly: days, nights & weekends): firstname.lastname@example.org
If you already have a reservation, and simply need to update your payment information, just leave us a note in the comments section below. All reservations are reviewed and processed by hand, and we will happily honor any special requests.
