Final payment must be paid prior to the departure or start of the program. If you wish to pay the full remaining balance of your booking by using PayPal, please inform us before the booking date.

Any bank transfer fees incurred are to be paid by the sender.

Payments may be made by:

1.         Bank Transfer/Bank Deposit/Internet Banking

In order to minimize your bank charges we recommend that you consider paying the total fees of your booking in full, rather than the initial deposit and then the balance at a later date. After sending the payment, please email us a scanned copy of the transfer record as proof of payment.

2.         Credit/Debit Card with PayPal

To make your secure on-line payment with PayPal – we can send you an invoice via PayPal. Or you can send it directly to info@diveinpattaya.com

Any cancellations less than 24 hours prior to the booking date are considered as a ‘no-show’ and will result in FULL LOSS OF YOUR CONFIRMED BOOKING DEPOSIT.

Changes to Your Booking:

If you decide to change your booking after you have made your reservation we will do what we reasonably can to accommodate you but it may not always be possible. You should notify us as soon as possible of any changes. We will do our best to make any alterations you may require after confirmation has been issued, subject to availability and to the payment for any increased costs relevant to the change. Any requests for alteration to an itinerary should be made by email by the person who made the original booking. If alterations are made less than 2 days prior to the booking date, an additional charge may apply to compensate for any potential lost bookings.
