Payment Guide

Safe and Convenient Way to Make a Payment

The quote we provide is in US Dollars. You can find the current exchange rate here. A 30% deposit is required at time of confirmation. Your travel consultant may fine-tune this number according to your actual itinerary and group size. The balance is due and payable 30 days prior to your departure date.


PayPal is a fast, easy and safe way to pay with over 100 million of users around the world.

How to pay by PayPal

Your travel consultant will send you a secured PayPal online payment link by email. Click the link, log in to your PayPal account and click on the "Pay" button to complete your payment. If you do not have a PayPal account, you can still complete your PayPal payment by providing your credit card information. PayPal accepts all major credit cards and debit cards.

Please contact your travel consultant for details of our PayPal account.

Credit Card 

If you choose to pay by credit card with preauthorization, we accept Visa Card, MasterCard and American Express. As we need your authorization, your travel consultant will send the Authorization Form via email to you for print and filling out.

It takes only three steps to complete the credit card payment authorization:

Step 1: 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 photograph the completed Credit Card Payment Authorization Form, both sides of your credit card and the information page of your passport, and then send the digital image files to us via email.

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 in China, where our parent company is located. The bank will help us get your payment from your credit card issuing bank.

*We also accept credit card payments online, which are supported by Ipaylinks. (Company address: 19, Kings Street, GILLINGHAM, United Kingdom, ME7 1EP).

Important Note:

- According to laws endorsed by Chinese Government, tour companies are not allowed to charge in foreign currencies. Credit card payments charged in CNY are based upon the current exchange rates in China. Your card issuing bank will debit you in local currency and My Odyssey Tours has no control on the exchange rate employed by your card company. As a result, the amount charged from your credit card might be slightly different from the amount on the credit card authorization form.

-My Odyssey Tours is owned by Tang Dynasty Tours Co. Ltd (License Number L-GX-CJ00045)

- We cannot accept credit card payment if you confirm the booking and pay less than 45 days prior to your departure date.

- A surcharge of 3% will be applied to payment by credit cards.

Electronic/Wire Transfer

Electronic/Wire Transfer is easy to do and incurs a lower surcharge than PayPal and credit card; however, it could take between 5 days to 3 weeks for the payment to reach us. So we cannot accept an Electronic/Wire Transfer for bookings made less than 30 days before arrival. You travel consultant will send our bank account details to you if you choose to pay this way.
