Trips and Visits

Payment schedule 

We hope that the cost of the expedition will be no more than £3000.

The current uncertainties around international travel and flight costs make this estimate less reliable than is usual so there may be additional costs.

The package includes return flights, transfers in country, all food and accommodation, snorkelling expeditions, full programme of lectures and excursions with scientists. Dive training is also a free activity.

The actual cost will depend on the cost of flights and will be confirmed as soon as they become available. If the cost exceeds the estimate there will be a final payment in April 2022.

Fundraising support is provided by Operation Wallacea but the success of this will depend on the motivation of participants.

Prompt payment is important as these dates have been chosen to coincide with the invoice dates expected from providers and will allow us to buy flights at the best price.

If individuals within the booked group cancel, others can replace them from the school with no cancellation charges applicable. If alternatives cannot be found cancellation will involve the loss of the deposit paid to Operation Wallacea  and the additional charges shown in the booking conditions.

Please note that we require written confirmation by post or email of any cancellation and the cancellation will take effect from the day the written confirmation is received by Operation Wallacea.

Please note that payments to agencies other than Operation Wallacea, such as airlines, may also be forfeit if we cannot obtain a refund from them.

We may also retain funds to cover shared overheads if the alternative would be increased costs for the remainder of the party.
