The Local Payment (LP) is part of your overall trip payment and is the most cost effective and practical way to get hard currency to Asia to pay for a variety of your day-to-day local costs (i.e. all meals prepared by the group, campsite fees, gas, and certain activities listed in the brochure) which cannot be pre-paid from the UK.  The Local Payment is payable to your Tour Leader on departure in US$ cash only.  Please Note: Your Tour Leader will only accept US$ notes (especially $100) that are issued on or after 2006 as older notes are more difficult to change.
