Find the answer to your question
Do you offer any discount?
We want KISC to be accessible to as many people as possible, that's why we follow WOSM's guidelines on fees. This means if you're from a category A, B or C country you can get a discount of up to 75% on all our accommodation. To find out which category your country belongs to, check out scout.org
To apply the discount to your accommodation, just ask during the booking stage on our website, it's that easy.
Do I need to re-book programme if our visit has been moved to 2021?
Yes, if your booking has been moved, you will need to submit a NEW programme booking with us on 1st March 2021. This is to make it fair to each group who will be staying with us in 2021.

I don’t have enough money yet collected from people in my group to pay a prepayment. Can I pay later than the date you wrote me to pay?
In order to confirm your booking, we do require your prepayment. If we have not received your prepayment by the due date, we will send prepayment reminders. After going through our prepayment reminder process and have not received your prepayment we will cancel your booking. If you really can't pay for your prepayment at the time being,contact our reception staff to see if any alternative solutions can be found.
