Once your booking has been confirmed we guarantee the price you pay will not chnage, whatever the circumstances. Unlike most other travel companies we will not ask you to pay any fuel, currency or other surcharges that may arise, as Explore will cover the cost of these.
Prices - USD/CAD
Prices listed are on a per person basis, sharing accommodation (unless otherwise stated). Land only trip prices do not include international flights. Please refer to the trip notes for details of what is included in the cost.
Trip prices shown on this website are a guide only. The selling price at the time you book your trip could be different as prices change regularly for various reasons.
Rooming & Single Room Option
Most trips are based on customers sharing twin-bedded rooms. If you book as an individual, you will be roomed with someone of the same sex. However, on many tours we offer the opportunity to pay a supplement to pre-book a single room. On some of these tours a single room will be provided at some of the night-stops but for logistical reasons not all. Individual Trip Notes clarify this. If, for whatever reason, we are unable to provide a single room as outlined in the Trip Notes, we will refund a proportion of the supplement paid to us for the Single Room Option.
Single Room Option - Where you are able to purchase a single room, the price does not necessarily guarantee you a single room for every night of the trip. For details please refer to the individual Trip Notes for your chosen trip.

Debit & Credit Card Payments
You can pay the deposit and full amount due by credit or debit card. We accept Visa and, MasterCard. All charges are transacted in the UK in the currency in which your booking is made. We do not charge fees for credit card transactions in USD or CAD. However because all transactions are processed in the UK some banks or credit card companies may charge a foreign transaction fee (even though we will be charging your card in USD or CAD). Any foreign transaction fees are imposed by your bank or credit card issuer and are not charged or collected by Explore. Therefore we recommend you check with your credit card company to see what their policy is with respect to foreign transaction fees as these range from zero to 3% depending on the card used. If you are a regular international traveller we recommend you utilize a credit card that does not impose foreign transaction fees both for your travel needs in general and to pay for your Explore trip.
Any changes to prices will be kept updated on the webpage for the tour.
Please be aware that the specific itinerary on some of our trips may differ depending on departure date. Please check the relevant trip notes for the most up-to-date information regarding the trip itinerary.
