|"This was the trip of a lifetime! I don't think anything could have prepared me for this amazing experience. The itinerary does not do the overall experience justice. I was amazed by Thailand and was glad that Out Adventures was there to escort me."|

This amount is the final payment for your trip and is to be paid in the specified currency, in cash to your leader upon arrival. The local payment is non-refundable, and is considered part of the total trip payment.
It is expensive to transfer funds to many countries - so by making a Local Payment you help us keep your costs low.
The Local Payment is used for paying for local services such as hotels and transport.
No, as the money is used to pay for local services these cannot be paid elsewhere.
