The first step to complete the process of becoming a member of our Global Cruise Advisor program is to complete the Global Cruise Advisor contract and Credit Card Authorization form. After submission and approval, your business and access will be set up and you will be able to access all of the materials, systems and portals that are available to operate your business. You must submit both items before you will receive access to the program and approval. Failure to submit both items in a timely fashion will delay the start of your business and entry into the GCA program.

Billing Disputes: In the unlikely event of a disagreement between us regarding your services or deliverables, you agree to make a good faith attempt for 30 days to communicate with Global Cruise Advisor prior to initiating a chargeback.
Delinquency Policies: If the credit card is declined, we will continue to attempt to charge the card on file every 3 days for 30 days (up to 10 times). We will attempt to notify you for updated contact information.
Delinquent Accounts: After 3 days without payment, your account will be considered delinquent. All accounts 3 days past due may be disabled or de-activated until balances are paid in full.
Returned Item Fee: There is a $50.00 insufficient funds check fee for returned checks in addition to the amount still due.
Late Fee: Invoices which remain unpaid after 30-days may be assessed a late fee of $50.00 per month.
Chargebacks: If a customer initiates a chargeback, we will assess a $250.00 processing fee for each individual chargeback.
Collections Fees: In the event an account is submitted to a third-party collections service, the client will be responsible for the full amount of the collections fees, in addition to any other fees previously assessed on the account.
Cancellation: Cancellation of an account does not dismiss outstanding invoices or the contracted commitments. At the time of cancellation, any outstanding balance must be settled. All cancelled accounts with an outstanding balance may be automatically turned over to a third-party collection service. This paragraph does not invalidate our refund policy.
Charge backs: Regardless of the outcome of a chargeback dispute by a credit card company or payment processor, we reserve the legal right to enforce our agreements and collect past due balances in court.
