Deposit FAQs


 

How much is the deposit?

 

The deposit is £200 if you are based in the UK, or US$250 if you are based in the USA. If you are in another region, you can choose to pay either in USD or GBP, the deposit is returned to you immediately upon completion of your project in Chinese RMB, based on current exchange rates.

 

Why do I need to pay a deposit?

 

Our partner programs need to be sure of your commitment to joining their summer camp before they will issue you with a visa invitation letter, TEFL documents and start preparing for your trip to China. Gotoco is always committed to making your trip to China as affordable as possible, and does not add any fees or unnecessary costs for your visit. Gotoco will not withhold your deposit if you cannot come to China or must leave the country for any legitimate reason in accordance with our terms, as long as sufficient proof, such as a doctor’s note, is provided.

 

Gotoco is committed to finding the best programmes for you, but we and our partners need you to show the same commitment to coming to China.

 

When will my deposit be returned?

 

We will return your deposit in full once you finish your programme in China and officially end your placement after filling out our online feedback form. We will send you the feedback form to complete towards the end of your stay in China.
