Payment Plans

15 June 2022

What payment plan options do I have?

You will have three payment plans for your booking. 

– Full payment upfront

– Instalment plan; or

– Flexi-payment plan.

You will be asked which plan you prefer during your application call. If you do not select a plan during your application call, the default option will be the “Full payment upfront plan” detailed below.


How does each payment plan work?

Full payment upfront plan

You’ll pay the full cost of your booking in one payment to confirm your program. This amount includes an application processing fee of GBP 75. The payment is due within 48 hours of your acceptance onto the program.

Instalment plan

You’ll pay a non-refundable deposit upfront of GBP 295 to confirm your program and the remaining balance of your program fee will be divided into equal installments due by the final day of each calendar month. This amount includes an application processing fee of GBP 75. The number of installments will be calculated by counting the number of full calendar months that fall between the receipt of your deposit payment and 3 calendar months prior to your program start date. The final monthly installment will be due 3 calendar months before your program start date.

Choosing this payment plan incurs a fee of GBP 125 and this fee is split equally across all your instalments.

Flexi-payment plan

You’ll pay a non-refundable deposit of GBP 295 upfront to confirm your program. This amount includes an application processing fee of GBP 75. The remaining balance of your program fee will be due 3 calendar months before your program start date on the final day of that month.

Choosing this payment plan incurs a fee of GBP 300 and this fee is added on to your final balance due.


When are my payments due?

Payment is expected on one of three dates each month. The three options are the 15th, the 25th or the last day of each month. You as the participant choose which you prefer. If you do not choose a preferred date, then the 30th will be the default date for charges. On the due date your payment card will be charged automatically. If paying by electronic fund transfer then your payment will become due on the payment due date.

Failure to make payment on your due date may incur a late payment fee of GBP 25. Should your payment not be received within 7 days of your payment due date, GVI reserves the right to cancel your program, without refund.

When paying by credit or debit card, your instalments are automatically deducted from the method of payment used to make your initial deposit payment. Should you wish to change the card being used for your installment payments please contact your Support Coordinator to update your records no later than 7 days prior to your payment due date.

Please refer to our Terms and Conditions for details regarding cancellations, refunds and transfers.


Holding fee

Should you wish to have the option of reserving your place on a specific date or program, but are unable to pay the full deposit amount, you have the option of paying GBP 150.
This amount includes an application processing fee of GBP 75 which forms part of your quoted program fee plus a holding fee of GBP 75. Both fees are non-refundable.

This amount will reserve your place on your program for 90 days from payment date OR 60 days prior to your program start date, whichever date comes first.
When you are ready to confirm your place, your application processing fee will be deducted from your balance due. Your balance amount will be determined based on the payment plan you have selected as described above.

GVI recommends not making any travel arrangements, including purchasing flights, until you have confirmed your place.
