FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q: Why is there a deposit due on June 1st or September 1st?
A: The Cougar Band is contracting this trip through a Travel Company that specializes in group travel and more specifically music group travel. We are setting up two payment plans for this trip; the June plan will allow you to make smaller payments over more time. We have to meet a series of payments to the company throughout the fall. In order to secure your student’s spot on the trip, we need your first payment at one of those times.
Q: What are the payment plan dates?
A: For the June Plan: June 1, July 1, September 1, October 1, November 1, and December 1. Each payment in this plan will be $313.50.
A: For the September Plan: September 1, October 1, November 1, and December 1. Each payment in this plan will be $334.00.
Q: Why are we skipping an August payment?
A: Other Band fees as due around that time.
Q: Is it possible for our whole family to go on the trip and receive the group discount?
A: The student rate is set by our travel company and is only for students. If parents or other family members want to go on the trip, they will need to make their own travel arrangements.
Q: Does the $1,326 student fee cover all the student’s meals and snacks?
A: No. The student fee covers all meals while in Florida. It does not include snacks and does not include meals/snacks on the road trip. The students will need extra cash for that purpose and will need to make sure they save aside enough for the return trip.
Q: Can I pay the whole trip amount at once?
A: Yes, you are welcome to do that either on June 1st or Sept. 1st.
Q: Can I say I am going and pay later?
A: Unfortunately no, we have to keep a payment schedule with our travel company and the only way a spot can be held is with a payment.
Q: What if I have begun making payments and I suddenly can’t go?
A: Our travel company has a refund policy and schedule; once you make your first payment we will get that information to you. These things do happen, and our travel company is very compassionate and will definitely work with you.
Q: How do I begin making payments?
A: You can make payments by either using our PayPal link on our website or sending your payment via mail to our PO Box. Once the school year begins, you can send it directly to school with your student. The PO Box is really only needed over the summer. If you are using our PayPal link, there are a few things to be aware of:
- There is a 3% service charge on each PayPal payment. We don’t see that money from the service charge; it goes right to PayPal.
- There will be two payment options, either the June Plan or the September Plan. Look carefully when you select.
