To confirm a booking, we require a booking deposit of at least 30%. Of the total amount. The remaining balance can be paid in cash at the start of the fist service of the services you hired, or can be paid using any of our payment methods (see below), before the start of the services.
Once you choose the programs of your preference, select the day and time of your choice and the number of participants in your group. Next, you can make your booking deposit as the following two payment methods:
You can pay a booking fee of 30% booking fee online with your credit card (or Paypal), and the balance of cash to our guide or driver before starting the first service. You can pay 100% upfront online with your credit card (or Paypal). However, a 4% surcharge applies for this option. You can pay with any of the major credit cards (VISA, MASTER CARD, AMEX, DINERS). We also accept the payment via PayPal and via wire transfer without any surcharge but this applies only to payments above US$ 1,000. If you want to use this payment method, please ask the instructions to one of our representatives at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Travelers can cancel their tour or activity at any time. However, Impulse Travel will have the right to charge a cancellation fee according to the time in advanced when the cancellation was made. The corresponding cancellation fees are as follow.

For the layover tour, we offer a cancellation insurance for Bogotá Layover Tour. If this insurance was acquired at the time of the booking, the traveler is entitled to a full refund in case of flight delay or cancellation. The refund will be issued to the credit card that was used to pay, or to a PayPal account within the next 10 working days after the cancellation is effective.

Additional costs due to events outside our control:
Additional costs incurred by passengers due to events or situations beyond Impulse Travel’s control (natural disasters, acts of God, terrorism, strikes or other political problems) are the exclusive responsibility of the client. Flights are sometimes subject to overbooking, delays, rescheduling or cancellations. If this happens, we will assist clients in making alternate arrangements to the best of our ability. However, Impulse Travel cannot be held responsible for denied boarding, delayed or cancelled flights nor for any additional costs resulting from missed land arrangements due to airline delays or cancellations.
