Whether you are inside or outside Indonesia, you can transfer money to our bank account in Indonesia. You can transfer the minimum deposit of 30%, or you may find it more economical to transfer a larger amount, say 70%, and then settle the balance when you are here.
Full transfer instructions & bank details will be provided to you at the time of your booking, and when you make the transfer please let us know so that we can check this end. It normally takes 4-5 working days to reach us and we will notifiy you when it has arrived.
Are packages changeable?
If you end up diving/staying less than your original package (e.g. because you are sick), in these cases we normally re-calculate the package at check-out, using the number of dives/nights you have actually done. However we reserve the right to levy a cancellation fee of up to 50% for late cancellations.
We highly recommend getting travel insurance to avoid these kind of problems, and we are happy to provide company-headed letters that can be used in the case of any insurance claims.
