If you have had multiple payments, the full amount shall reach ESKIMOS at least four (4) weeks prior to the beginning of the program. In case of further delays on payments ESKIMOS reserves the right to treat this as a cancellation and withdraw its confirmation of the services.
Payment for your experience can be made by credit card (Visa or MasterCard) or bank transfer.
- Where payment is made by credit card, we reserve the right to pass on the appropriate 2,8% processing charge when your deposit and balance payments are made, if the amount of your booking exceeding 150.000 ISK (Icelandic Krona)
