    If payment is by bank draft/cheque:

    A bank draft/cheque is somewhat time consuming to make, very slow to use and a little more expensive. It normally takes a total of five weeks before the funds are eventually deposited into our account. It is Ekstra Tourismís policy to add a $25 surcharge for each bank transfer payment. Bank draft/cheque in US dollars can be accepted if it is made to Ekstra Tourism & Travel, A.S.

    Unfortunately Ekstra Tourism does to accept personal or company cheques.
