Methods of Payment

Our Company accepts three different methods of payment from the customer in order to pay off the requested services

  • Info-mediation
  • Charging the customer's credit card
  • Direct deposit from the Customer to the checking account of the Company's bank with posts in Chile or New York, USA.

As Info-Mediator

In this case, we ask the traveler for his/her credit card information as a guarantee of reservation. This does not mean that the card will be charged, rather, the information is transferred to the company lending the tourist service (accommodations, flight ticket, cruise, tour or car rental) that the customer has selected, as a way of guaranteeing reservation, this being the final entity that charges the traveler for services rendered.

Credit Card Use

The Credit Card number is essential to process, guarantee or pay for a reservation.

Charging the Customer´s Credit Card or Direct Bank Deposit to the Checking Account

In the event that the reservation requires a prior payment, the traveler will be notified beforehand and the card holder will be asked to fill out an Application of Charge Authorization, which must be signed and sent with the purpose of authorizing GOTOLATIN TRAVEL S.A. to carry out the pertinent charge, for the authorized sum.

Policies and General Fees for Cancellations

The Policies and "General" fees that are considered for Cancellation of services granted through GOTOLATIN TRAVEL S.A. are different for hotels, tours, cruises, car rental and flights, therefore, said information is specified under the Terms and Conditions of Reservations for each type of service. However, there are Hotel Companies, Airlines, Operators, Cruiselines, Transfer and Car Rental services that possess specific Cancellation or Return Policies that are indicated once service is confirmed.
