We are leaving for Ecuador in a week , our trip is fully paid, and I received an email from our travel agency 2 days ago asking for the following information:
"We require one passport copy per group/reservation, your address (could be home or work), and a phone number (preferably home and cell phone). This information is for the Ecuadorian tax office. If you are not able to provide us with a copy of your passport, then unfortunately the price of your tour will raise with 12% Value Added Taxes"
Has anyone experienced this before? Is it safe to email a copy of my passport?
Many thanks in advance.
