* Three Steps to complete the credit card payment authorization:
Step 1: Print and fill out the Credit Card Payment Authorization Form with your VALID credit card information (card type, number, card holder's name, billing address, and card holder's signature, etc.).
Step 2: Scan or take photos of the completed Credit Card Payment Authorization Form, both sides of your credit card and your passport, then send the original image files to your travel consultant.
Important note: To make sure the scan or photos are legible for the bank to process the authorization, we recommend you use a high-resolution camera to take the photos and email us the original digital image files.
Step 3: After we receive your authorization documents, we will acknowledge the receipt by sending you an email and send the documents to Bank of China who will help us get your payment from your credit card issuing bank.
* Please Note:
According to the rules of the Chinese Government, we are not allowed to charge in foreign currencies. So the payments on our side is charged in CNY based on the current exchange rates in China. Your card issuing bank will charge you in local currency and China Odyssey Tours have no control on the exchange rate employed by your card company. As a result, there might be a subtle difference between the final amount charged from your credit card and the amount identified on the Credit Card Authorization Form.
Usually, it takes 2-5 days for the payment reach on our side, so if you make the payment less than 10 days prior to your arrival date, credit card won't be accepted by us.
It's easy to pay through Electronic/Wire Transfer; however, it could take 3 - 7 days for the payment to reach our side. Due to this reason, for clients who make a booking less than 30 days before arrival, China Odyssey Tours can't accept an Electronic/Wire Transfer.
