    I want to pay in CAD with a Credit Card instead of an E-transfer (a 3% CC processing fee will be added)

    Payment - please read carefully

    If you are paying via a third party booking service such as 57 Hours or Explore-Share then please ignore this section regarding payment as your payment is via these services.

    All of our trips are priced in Canadian Dollars. The approximate exchange rate is given for your convenience on each trip information page.

    If you have a Canadian address and prefer to pay in CAD with a credit card then ensure the Country field (above) reads "Canada" and select the Credit Card payment option that is offered. Note that a 2.5% processing fee applies for CAD Credit Card payments.

    You will receive an invoice via Flywire, our online payment and foreign exchange service, after we review your booking application.

    Canadian clients not paying by Credit Card: Please send your E-transfer to (auto-deposit is enabled, no password required).

    Non-Canadian residents and Canadian residents who selected the Credit Card payment option please pay by credit card via the links sent to you with your Flywire invoice. If you have any issues with your payment, please contact Flywire's support team, and only contact Sawback if you have problems that cannot be resolved by Flywire.

    Sawback Booking Conditions and Cancellation Policies Fine Print

    READ CAREFULLY – BOOKING, RESERVATION, DEPOSIT: A deposit of 50% of the total price or private guiding fee is due with your booking unless otherwise indicated. You are required to complete our waiver and application forms as well as accept our current covid policy during the booking process. You will be sent an invoice via our invoicing system, Flywire which provides all payment options available except Interac e-transfers. Flywire also provides foreign currency rates for the various payment options so you can pay in your local currency. If you wish to pay in CAD by E-transfer send funds to Final payments are due 90 days before your trip starts. CONFIRMATION / TRIP INFORMATION: Upon receipt of this registration form we confirm your booking and you agree to pay your deposit within 7 days. Each trip we offer has a detailed trip information page (available on our website) with the trip details, equipment list, proposed itinerary and logistics, etc. Read through this carefully before completing your registration. TRIP (CANCELLATION / MEDICAL / EVACUATION / THEFT) INSURANCE: Once you complete your registration, we enter into financial obligations on our side and we cannot refund payments or release you from your contractual obligations. Therefore, we highly recommend buying cancellation insurance to cover your losses for the case that you can’t participate or have to interrupt your trip “for any reason”. Also, all participants need to have internationally accepted health insurance for all activities pertaining to the trip, including coverage for emergency rescue and evacuation. If you already have insurance, please make sure that you will be covered for “roped travel” booking a technical trip including “Via Ferrata” trips. We will gladly refer you to a travel insurance provider who offers “adventure travel insurance packages” and with whom our clients have had positive claims experiences in the past. Generally, you will receive the best benefits if you buy your insurance within 10 days of our booking confirmation. We strongly urge you to read our Insurance Information page carefully before booking your trip. CANCELLATIONS: If you need to cancel a reservation, please do so in writing (best by e-mail). CANCELLED PROGRAMS: Once we confirm your booking, we guarantee your trip departure. However, we do reserve the right to change guides, particular lodging or the itinerary or venue should unforeseen circumstances (guide sickness, hut or route closing etc.) force us to do so or should the physical condition of the participants (see below), weather or mountain conditions make a continuation as planned too risky. We will not be deemed to be in default for any delay or failure to perform our obligations under this Agreement resulting from acts of God, the elements, war, acts of government, civil or military authorities, natural calamities, catastrophe, fire, flood, accidents, epidemics, shortage of transportation, or any other like events beyond our reasonable control. PERSONAL FITNESS and GROUP TRAVEL: Our programs rely heavily on the integrity of each individual to assess his or her skill level and physical condition accurately. It is the responsibility of each participant to be aware of the necessary skill and fitness level for a particular trip. When in doubt, please call and discuss this with us! For the protection of yourself and other group members, we reserve the right to deny participation to any unprepared participant at any time of the trip, in which case we cannot offer a refund! In order to accommodate diverse levels of ability and ambition as well as diverse personalities, the decision making of the guide has to be geared towards safety and finding a consensus within the whole group, which may not please each individual participant at all times. FEE INCREASES: Due to the unpredictability of lodge rental fees, lodge trip bookings made more than 6 months in advance of the trip start date may be subject to unexpected price increases of up to 5%. If an increase greater than 5% is necessary, or if a fee increase is announced less than 6 months before your trip start date, then you will be provided with the opportunity to cancel your booking with a full refund of all payments made.
