With the Pay Per Tour plan, you pay a per tour fee at the time you activate each tour, and the tour may remain active for up to two years or until you manually inactivate or delete the tour. The Standard Monthly plan allows you to have up to 10 active tours at a given time. The Deluxe Monthly plan allows you to have up to 25 active tours at a given time. You may activate or deactivate tours as often as needed. The Unlimited Monthly plan allows you to have unlimited active tours.

Once your account is activated, you can upgrade or downgrade your account type at any time through the service.
7. Billing Terms: Tour Provider accepts payments by credit card only (MasterCard, Visa, or Discover).
