The USA Tour Payment Schedule:
✓ Deposit of $1500 is due with your application
✓ Final payment of $2,000 is due by March 15
Acceptable Payment Options include:
1) American Bank Personal Check, Cashier’s Check, or Money Order (click here for details)
this is the least expensive option for the student; there are no additional processing or administrative fees added. Cashier’s checks and money orders can be purchased for a few dollars.
2) Wire Transfer from your home country bank to the USA Tour bank (click here for details)
this option is more expensive depending on your bank’s wire transfer fee policy
3) Pay Pal or Credit Card (see below)
this is the most expensive option for the student. We provide this service as a convenience to the student and their family; however, it is unfortunate that this method includes a 4.6% fee. Please know that the USA Tour only receives the deposit and/or the final payment amounts. The additional fees are convenience fees paid directly to the PayPal processing center.
4) Additional Services:
TransferWise is also a service that you may be able to use. While this service does not transfer money directly to the USA Tours office it does allow a student's family to send money to the student's personal U.S. checking account and from there the student can write a U.S. check or prepare a U.S. cashier's check or U.S. money order to send to us for their payments.
TransferWise offers their money transfer service to many countries and offers a wide variety of currency exchanges. However, not all currencies/countries are available. Please check out their website for more details on this option.
Remember, this service can only transfer money to a personal bank account in the US. Funds cannot be directly transferred to the USA Tour from a TransferWise account.
Several students have found this to be an extremely inexpensive option for their family. One student's family was able to transfer funds to her personal checking account for less than $30.00. For more information, please contact the TransferWise website.
Payment Option that are not accepted:
1) No International checks (no exceptions)
2) No International money orders (no exceptions)
3) No Cash payments accepted (exceptions on case by case basis. Contact Tour Director for more details)
In the event that we do not have 40 students registered by March 15 we reserve the right to cancel the trip and return all monies paid.
