How does the booking request, quotations and payments work?

Is a deposit always required? No, a deposit is not always required. When required, the amount is mentioned in the quotation of your booking. WAAT Studio has the right to decide whether or not to charge a deposit value. Please contact us and we will clarify any question you may have concerning this theme.
