Taxes

Ecuador’s 12% value added tax (IVA) is applicable to most goods and services, including tourist lodging. However, Ministry of Tourism regulations permit us to waive the tax in some circumstances. We will let you know if this applies to your reservation. (Please note that the tax decreased from 14% to 12% on June 1, 2017).

 

Payment Methods

We accept payment by PayPal, international bank transfer or bank deposit in Ecuador. Like most locally-based operators, we do not take Visa. In Ecuador, the service is expensive (+10 to 12%) and unreliable, leading to much frustration and delay on all sides.

When making a bank transfer, we ask you to pay the transfer fees to ensure that we receive the full amount (minus the $10 fee charged by our own bank).

If you do not already have a PayPal account, we send an invoice with a link that will help you open an account in a matter of minutes and at no cost. You can still pay on  credit by linking the PayPal account to your credit card.

 

Policies

Payment Schedule

To secure a reservation, we request a 50% deposit at the time of booking with the balance payable 30 days prior to arrival.

Cancellation Charges

Most travellers plan their Galápagos itineraries well in advance and last-minute bookings are rare. For that reason, deposits are not refunded and final payments are only refundable up to 30 days prior to arrival. So if you elect to pay in full at the time of booking, 50% of the payment is refundable up to 30 days before arrival.

Other Listing Sites

We try to maintain consistent policies on various listing sites where the Galeodan Suites appear, however, limited flexibility of certain listing sites makes that there may be minor differences. You should consider yourself bound by the policies displayed on the listing site, unless superseded by policies conveyed to you, prior to payment of the deposit, by text or email attachment.

Suite Rental as Part of a Package

Suite rental terms may be modified if rental is part of a package including fishing, a cruise, or other activities. Details will be conveyed prior to accepting a reservation.

Acceptance of Terms

If you have concerns or require clarification of any point of pricing or policy, please so not hesitate to ask. Payment of a deposit or final payment indicates to us that you accept and will be bound by the booking policies.

Insurance

Suite rental is just one component of a visit to the Galápagos Islands and we do advise travellers to take out insurance against illness and missed, cancelled or delayed flights.

Special Deals

Students & Volunteers Stay Free (with parents/family)

San Cristóbal is a popular destination for student volunteers. And we are just down the road from the GAIAS Institute and Science Centre. The Galeodan Suites are thus ideal for parents visiting or enrolling their children at the various institutes or volunteer programs.

Regardless of whether the students and volunteers have alternative accommodation, they are welcome to stay with their parents at the Galeodan Suites at no additional cost.
 

Non-Refundable / Pay-Now Discount

We offer a 15%t discount in exchange for full payment at the time of booking with no refund for cancellation. The offer is only available for bookings of 2 nights or more, made more than 30 days in advance of arrival.
