Notes on Payments
Concierge services are offered at a rate of $50 per hour billed by half-hour increments. A deposit equal to the estimate is taken when we establish a working relationship. Additional fees may differ based on the length of your trip and group size, and will be discussed before being charged. If you must cancel your trip before your itinerary is complete, up to half your deposit may be refunded, depending upon how much time has been spent on your itinerary. All major credit cards are accepted. Invoices will be sent and paid for online through a secure platform. If other vendors are involved (a hotel, transportation, private chef, etc.) Willamette Wine Concierge will act as a liaison between parties to get dates and contracts in motion, but financial arrangements with that vendor are your responsibility.
