Peru - Julius Tours - Wire Transfers???
Posted on Jul 01, 2013 by
My parents are planning a trip to Lima Peru. They just got a quote from Julius Tours which was the cheapest rate they found. The concern is that they want my parents to do a wire transfer of 30% of the costs to their account in Peru and remainder to be paid upon arrival at Lima. They have friends who used Julius and had a great time, but their
tickets were purchased after arriving there. They are a little uncomfortable doing a wire transfer of the money and would prefer using a credit card, but were told it was not an option. We also checked TripAdvisor.com and someone else had written with the same question, but were being asked for 50% to be wired. We didn`t really find an answer regarding the wire transfer concern, but the few reviews from those using Julis seemed to be happy with the tour itself. Do any of you have experience with travel in Peru? Is this the normal process with the other tour operators? Has anyone actually used Julius?
