Prenotazioni Last Minute
  • Devo pagare una somma extra se prenoto una settimana prima dell´inizio del mio corso?

    No, anche se i corsi prenotati due settimane o meno prima della data del tuo arrivo devono essere pagati per intero al momento della prenotazione, dato che tutti i corsi devono essere pagati almeno due settimane prima del tuo arrivo. Anche se accettiamo il pagamento inoltrato della quota d´iscrizione, ti consigliamo di prenotare il prima possibile il tuo soggiorno, per assicurarti che possiamo soddisfare la tua prima scelta di alloggio, ecc.

  • Can I pay with the GI Bill?

    Unfortunately, our schools don’t offer formal education (graduate or post graduate studies), so the GI Bill can’t be used for our programs.

  • I tried to pay using a payment gateway but it didn’t work, what should I do?

    In this case, you should first make sure that your bank allows charges from a different country. Sometimes, especially with American banks, they need to know this to allow the charge to be made at a certain time.
    Also, certain cards need to be secured to be able to be used for online payment, so look to see if your card requires that.

  • How and when should I pay for my course?

    To book your course we require a minimum down payment of 500 Euro for courses in Spain and $700 for courses in Latin America. The total cost of your stay must be paid at least two weeks before your arrival.
    The best way is to pay by Master Card or VISA in our secure booking page. It’s easy, simple and safe!
    If you are booking online, after filling in the enrolment form, it will show you the secure booking page. If you are booking offline through one of our course counsellors, they will provide you with your student number and the link to our secure booking page, so your payment will be associated to your enrolment immediately.
    Or, you can send us a written authorisation allowing don Quijote to charge your credit card. Please ask for it from your course counsellor:
    Telephone: (+34) 923 26 88 60; Toll free from USA: 1-800-518-0412
    And also, you can opt to pay by bank transfer. Please, send us a copy of the transfer by email so we can process your reservation right away.
