Usually full balance of payment is required no later than 14 days prior to arrival. Any booking or additional service booked with less than 14 days must be paid in full at the time of confirmation.
The clause “Payments terms” of your Travel proposal will show the exact timing for payments to be done; such terms, as well as the Cancellation policy, depend on the underneath contracts/agreements that PME puts in place with suppliers to execute your specific booking.
