You will receive a confirmation email reconfirming the booking usually within 48 hours. If you have selected to pay £1 deposit please be aware a further £49 is due to be paid 7 days later. Rep Route will attempt to process this payment 3 times. Should the payment fail to be provided the booking may be cancelled at the discretion of Rep Route. A reinstatement fee of £39 shall be applied in order to reactivate the booking. In this scenario a cancellation fee of £39 shall need to be paid by the customer. The remaining balance (accommodation fee) must be paid at least 2 months before travelling, unless your booking is made within 2 months of your planned departure date. If this is the case, Rep Route will arrange the dates of payment to suit the client and Rep Route. We are happy to accept late bookings where possible and available.

The accommodation fee is to be paid in instalments. Once your booking is confirmed with Rep Route instalment payments will begin to be taken the following month. These payments will be made on the 1st of every month (unless alternative methods or month dates are requested). Alternatively the full accommodation fee needs to be paid at least 2 months before your booked arrival date.

However we do allow late payments as long as arrangements have been made with the working abroad rep team.
