  • Your credit card company may have additional charges for foreign transactions.
  • There may be credit card, and BANK CHARGES/EXCHANGE RATE CHARGES added to the balance authorized for credit card charges.
  • Please note that we do not have any control over these charges which they make directly to you. We charge only the amount that you authorize to us.
  • Please note that for AMEX card charges which must be transacted in Belize dollars our exchange rate is $2.00 Belize Dollars to one US Dollar. Thus for AMEX cards we convert the amount you authorize to us into Belize dollars.
