Are we likely to find there are discounts for paying cash (instead of Visa) for tours? Dive tours? Snorkel tours? Jungle Tours?

Because credit cards are expensive for tour operators you may find a discount for multiple trips is more readily negotiable if you pay in cash, or in travellers' cheques. A straight discount for cash won't normally be offered, apart from anything else because it breaks the rules imposed by the card companies.

Not true, adding a surcharge for credit cards violates your agreement. Offering a discount for cash is not a problem.

I think Seaduced offers a discount for paying cash but you might want to double check on that.

Every time I have offered cash for diving or a tour a deal has been struck. It never hurts to ask.

Thanks, in person this evening I discovered that indeed a 10% discount is usually available for cash. We walked around town and had a dinner at Elivi's. We are visiting Laminae tomorrow.
