Payment plan

Registration for the 2019 edition of Carpathian MTB Epic can be accessed through a balanced payment plan that eliminates the up front payment of the total entry fee. We are here to help you establish a personalised plan, based on the following considerations:

  • The payment plan is available to riders registering before the 31st of March. All solicitations made after the aforementioned date will be considered, yet cannot be guaranteed.
  • 40% of the entry fee is required as a first deposit, with the remaining 60% to be payed in a maximum of 3 instalments, with payment dates to be established with each individual rider. The final instalment must be payed no later than the 1st of July 2019. The entry is validated only after all payments have been made.
  • All instalment payments will incur an additional 2% processing fee.
  • In case you will request a refund prior to the payment of all the instalments, you will be eligible for a 50% refund of the total payments made to date. If all the payments have been made, the standard refund policy, described here, will be applied.

Please get in touch via the Contact page to establish a personalised payment plan.
