Booking payment is the only way you can secure motorbikes and guide(s) for your Vietnam adventures on two wheels. Please save or print this page and avoid any typo so you don’t have to pay higher fees.
If you have a private group, one of you collects the deposit(s) from all riders and pays in one transfer to save fees, especially via banks (over 80% of transfers involves a middle bank, therefore double charged). Western Union Quick Cash Transfer used to be easier, faster and cheaper. Unfortunately, we find this service a bit annoying from our end because they extend their reviewing time and even deliver time. However, it’s still better than a bank transfer.
You can do a bank or cash transfer. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept payment(s) through PayPal because this company has terrible conditions against Vietnamese account holders. Please use one of the two options below at your convenience. In general, Western Union is a better way to send your booking payment.
Option 1. Western Union Money Transfer® – Money in Minutes Confirmation
If you want to find a Western Union office near you, please visit their website.
Why Western Union?
To save bank transfer fee (25$US – 50$US), you can send money through Western Union because they offer competitive commission (2-10%, at least 5$US). There were many warnings about sending your money through Western Union. Offroad Vietnam is a trusted company, highly recommended in many travel books, magazines and by many clients which you can follow this link to check out. We are a registered company and has been in business from late 2006 so there is nothing bad that is said about us.
Recently, the authorization/verification process became very complicated and slow. It seemed Western Union wanted you to walk into one of their offices or agents and pay in person. However, this will allow the transfer to go through in minutes as they advertised. If you submit an on-line credit card payment, it rarely works!
You can pay in your local currency and choose $US as the payout currency.
Details Of The Receiver
Our details are below. You probably don’t need to provide all details listed, just fill in what they ask for – in bold. Filling in with more details or with a typo means a longer telegraphic transfer message and may cost extra. In general, the most common typo is my given name – put in The Anh, not The Ahn):
– Full name (Vietnamese way): Vu The Anh (Vu is family name and The Anh is first name)
– Country: Vietnam
– Current address: 36 Nguyen Huu Huan street
– Phone and/or mobile: +84 913047509
– Service type: Money in minutes
Once your wire completes, you will get a 10-digit MCTN (Money Transfer Control Number). Please send this code, the full name of the sender, actual amount and location of transaction (or just scan and send us a copy of receipt) and we use these details to pick up the funds from a local Western Union shortly. We need to use an identity card to receive your deposit. Therefore, no other person can receive other than Vu The Anh (known as Anh Wu), the owner of Offroad Vietnam.
Option 2. Bank Transfer

Note about Booking Payment
It is your responsibility to ask your bank how much they charge to convert into United States Dollars (USD) and/or transfer fee and if they have to go through a third bank (from our experience, 80% of the transfers usually go through a bank in U.S.A. like Bank of New York or Bank of America) before Vietcombank. Please only use USD, Euro, AUD, GBP, CAD or VND. Some of our customers were double charged without notice!
