Registration fee and tour installments

Type of payment

If you are paying for your registration fee it is a minimum of 150 USD. You can chose to increase this amount to have a lower monthly payments between now and your departure, i.e. combine your registration fee with an installment.
If you are paying your monthly tour installment you should pay the amount that was indicated in your payment update email that was sent to you.

Our 3 payment methods

1.Credit Card (1% card fee)
2.Online Banking (free)
3.International Bank Transfer
The three different methods can be used depending on the amount you are paying. The credit card option will add a 2% credit card fee, however Lingo Tours will cover 1% (half) of that fee. Online banking payment is free and does/should not inflict a charge for you. International Bank Transfer fee will be carried by Lingo Tours when transferring amounts over 5000 USD. Below a more detailed explanation on how to use each method.

1. Credit Card Payment

When paying with credit card, please use the StudyPay system below where you make your transaction with your credit card.
We recommend you notify your bank in advance of making credit card payments that international transactions will be taking place with Earthport based in the UK (the Lingo Tours payment service provider). If you do not notify your bank in advance then your payment may be blocked and will not be processed.
The credit card company will charge you 2% fee for your payment. Lingo Tours will split that fee with you by topping up your payments with 1%. In effect you are only paying 1% credit card fee.
