Payments & Conditions

Payment Methods

Cruzeiros Douro proposes quick conditions and payment practices. You can pay for your program using the following methods:

- Credit card

- ATM Reference


Credit Card Payment

You can pay by credit card through a secure online payment method. Payment is securely processed on your card to the Cruzeiros Douro bank account (Grupo Ecotravel, Lda.) through a third party entity that processes payments (Redunicre).

Payment by Credit Card does not imply the payment of any extra fee by the customer. Any fees inherent in this transaction will be fully charged to us.

Through the credit card payment method, you will be sent an email with a link that will redirect you to a page of Redunicre, which is our partner to make your payment more securely. You should enter your card details, which should include number, expiration date and security code.

Once the payment has been validated, the amount of your purchase will be debited. Our bank and Redunicre are the only entities that process this data and ensure the safe transmission of data. We merely receive the result of the authorisation.

For customers who make credit card payments, some bank entities may exchange fees as they are made in euros (€).

Note: As a security measure disseminated by VISA International and Europay/Mastercard, requests for transactions using card from those systems will only be processed by Redunicre if the credit card CVV2/CVC2 security code is provided. This consists of three digits on the back of the card after the number on the right side of the signature panel. We exemplify below:

Booking Cancellations or Changes

- 1-Day Cruises: We will refund the full amount if cancellation is notified to us (at least) 72 hours prior to the cruise departure date. At the end of these 72 hours, no show on the day of departure will result in complete loss of the full amount of the reservation, which exempts us from refunding the paid amount.

At the end of this deadline, no show on the day of departure will result in complete loss of the full amount of the reservation, which exempts us from refunding the paid amount.

- 3-Day Programmes: We will fully refund the amount paid if cancellation is notified to us at least 15 days prior to the programme's departure date. At the end of this deadline, no show on the day of departure will result in complete loss of the full amount of the reservation, which exempts us from refunding the paid amount.

- New Year's Eve Cruises: We will refund the full amount if cancellation is notified to us till November 30, 2019. After this date, no show on day of departure will result in complete loss of the full amount of the reservation, which exempts us from refunding the paid amount.
