Step 1 – Find a Trip
Find that trip that has been escaping you for a long time. Spend some time learning about the trip using our helpful trip page information.
Feel free to reach out to the trip experts at Fish Village for questions regarding your next fishing adventure. We are here to help and expect a few questions along the way.
Step 2 – Book the Trip
Commit to your trip by telling your Trip Coordinator that you are ready to make your deposit. Most people send us an email using the contact form on the trip page. You can always send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 3 – Fish Your Dream
This is the best part of the process, the part where you are doing what you love to do – FISH. Our job is to prepare you while your only job is to live in the moment.
How Does Billing Work
We try to make this as simple and as painless as possible regardless if you are spending a couple hundred bucks or a couple thousand.
Most trips begin with an email asking us questions about a trip. After we help you book your spot on a trip, we will send you an email with an invoice attached. From that invoice you will be able to pay a deposit, make a payment or pay-off a balance. Once again, payment terms are unique to each trip with some trips requiring full payment up front. Regardless of the terms of the trip, you will be able to manage your payments securely and easily via our online invoicing system.
Forms of Payment
We accept just about everything out there from cash, checks, ACH transfer, PayPal, ApplePay and every major credit card.
Some trips have unique payment constraints. Please note the “Payment Info” tab on the trip page that you are looking into for payment information.
Most trips require a deposit to secure your spot on a trip. The deposit amount is predetermined by the Trip Provider and is non-negotiable. Deposits range from 20% to 50% of the trip total (determined by the Trip Provider).
Each trip is configured with a deposit cut-off date. Once the cut-off date has passed, only full payments will be accepted.
Trip Page (Payment Tab)
Every trip page on FishVillage.com has a tab dedicated to payment specific information for that trip. These tabs will indicate if payment by check is required or if the refund policy differs from the default policy.
Payment Plan Option
We understand that a lot of the best fishing trips available cost a pretty penny. We don’t want to ever say no to a customer simply because the payments are a bit more than they can handle. We have an alternative to no… we say yes.
If the only obstacle that stands in your way of a bucket list fishing trip is an extra payment or two… then we at Fish Village are happy to oblige. To make the most of our payment plan option, we suggest to book early. The earlier you book means that you have more time to pay.
The golden rule about our payment plan option is that no matter what, no exceptions… every trip must be paid in full 60 days before their trip date.
* Not all trips qualify for payment plans, however we do try to accommodate whenever possible and if there is enough time between the initial booking and the actual trip date.
Payment Mailing Address
Please make checks payable to Fish Village and mail to:
1142 S. Diamond Bar Blvd Ste 337
Diamond Bar, CA 91765
Please do not mail cash or coins.
Our refund policy is simple, we do not offer refunds on trips. We will however work with you to find a replacement so that you are not out any money. There is no guarantee that we will find a replacement, however we will give it an honest effort to fill the spot with someone that wants to be there.
Some trip providers will allow you to reschedule a trip as well giving you a chance to come fish with them.
Refund terms will be listed on every trip page under the tab titled “Payment”.
