Prior to your trip to Bhutan you will be asked to make the full payment (US $) for your trips to the Tourism Council of Bhutan’s bank account at the Bhutan National Bank, with SNG Tours & Treks as the ultimate beneficiary of the funds. You must make the tour payment calculated by SNG Tours & Treks as well as USD 40 (one time visa fee) to the Bhutan National Bank. Please email the bank receipt copy to us after the payment is made.
Your money is held in the government’s account and will not be released to SNG Tours & Treks until your tour takes place. Therefore, your money is secured and will be returned to you by the government if for any reason the trip could not be advanced. This means that the government will not give your money to SNG Tours & Treks instead it will be given back to you but you may have to pay the cancellation charges if you have cancelled the trip.
