Third-party credit cards are not acceptable. Check or money order should be made payable to "Tour Beyond, Inc". Passengers joining our tours from outside the U.S. must make payment by electronic bank wire, bank check or international money order in U.S. currency. Please contact us for information on bank wire payment.
A non-refundable deposit of USD$200 per person is required to secure your China Tour reservation. Reservations will not be confirmed until your deposit is cleared with our company. To secure a reservation on a China Tour departing within 75 days, full payment is required at the time of booking.
Final payment is due 75 days prior to departure. To take advantage of our early booking discount (cash discount rate) for your China Tour, simply send us your personal check, certified check or money order in the cash discount amount as indicated on your invoice to arrive at our company by the payment due date. If you wish to pay your balance by credit card, please complete the enclosed credit card authorization form on your China Tour invoice, sign and return it to us by fax or postal mail. This form authorizes us to charge the regular China Tour fare as indicated on your invoice.
Payment for Land Only packages
Travelers who purchase China Land Only packages and make payment with credit card are required to provide a CLEAR copy of their credit card (both front and back side), and a copy of a passport for each travel participant. The documents should be emailed as a scanned attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to 360-656-0000 (or 001-360-656-0000 if faxed outside North America) before the reservation is confirmed.

Cancellation & Refund
Notification of a China Tour cancellation for any reason must be in writing. Verbal cancellation by phone is not acceptable. Any cancellation refunds will be calculated from the date the written cancellation is received in our offices.

Should the traveler(s) cancellation change the room configuration and thereby incur a single supplement charge to a roommate the amount of the charge will be deducted from the travelers' refund. This is in addition to any other cancellation fees that may apply.
To receive any refund, all air tickets and all other travel documents must be returned to Tour Beyond, Inc. Applicable refunds will be processed promptly following receipt of the written cancellation and documents.
