Pay your Balance at my Office in Vang Vieng

We prefer cash in US Dollars, but we are happy with Euros, UKPounds, Lao Kip and Thai Baht. You may also use your credit or debit card, but we will add a 3% fee for this.

SWIFT International Bank Transfers for Larger Payments

If you prefer to pay for the whole of your Tours in advance and your booking value is over US$1000, SWIFT is a good option. Your Bank may charge you a SWIFT fee of around US$50. My SWIFT details are:

  • My Bank: BCEL Vientiane, Laos
  • SWIFT Code: COEBLALA
  • My Account Number: 140 120 100 158 426 001
  • My Account name: LAVONE THIPSADY MR
  • .Account 2
  • My Account Number: 140 110 101  293 004 001
  • My Account name: VLT NATURAL TOURS

 

Notes on payments:

  1. Internet Payments. Sadly, Lao is too small a country for the Internet Payment Processors to enable on-line payments. PayPal, unfortunately, does not support payments to Lao PDR.
  2. Fees and Charges. All payment methods involve clear or hidden charges. Cash is usually the least cost for you, which is why we ask you to pay your balance in cash. Cards attract a 3% charge for me and maybe the same from your bank to you.
  3. Security. I have a VISA card machine in my office, which accepts VISA, MasterCard, UnionPay and JCB payments. If you call, text, fax or email your card details, I will scan your receipt and send you a copy of the receipt from my card machine. I will then erase/destroy all paper and electronic copies of your card details on PC’s, phones or fax machines in my office. The only record kept is on my secure VISA machine, as in all other countries.
  4. Extra Security. Some of my customers prefer to send their card details via 2 separate methods. They send their 16 digit card no. and name by email to:  [email protected] and their expiry date and 3-digit CVC code, in a separate text, to my mobile phone, +8562055208283.  This is a totally secure way and we have had no problems.
