Commitment to safety

EF has 500 schools and offices in more than 50 locations around the world. That means wherever you go, rest assured, we’re there too. We also offer a Global Travel Protection Plan that covers everything from a lost bag to a canceled trip.

Global Travel Protection Plan
Travelers can protect their investment from the unexpected with the offered Global Travel Protection Plan. Designed specifically with EF travelers in mind, this plan covers all travelers for the official tour portions while groups are traveling with a Tour Director.

EF’s Peace of Mind Program
At EF, we understand that plans can change due to unforeseen circumstances. That's why we provide EF's exclusive Peace of Mind Program. You can feel secure planning your trip knowing that your group has this added flexibility. Your Group Leader may choose from the following options:

- 45 days or more prior to departure: 
  • Change the travel dates of your group's current tour
  • Work with EF to modify your group's current tour or find a new tour
  • Cancel your tour and all travelers will receive a transferable travel voucher
- 44 days or less prior to departure:
  • If a formal Travel Warning is issued by the U.S. Department of State for any location on your itinerary, your Group Leader may still choose any option from above. 
24-hour emergency service

When your students are traveling, our emergency service team is available 24-hours a day, ready to answer your call should any situation arise.  

Travel policies
EF’s policies are in accordance with the recommendations of the U.S. Department of State, Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board.

Rules of the Road
In the spirit of safe and successful travel, we ask all travelers to review and sign our Rules of the Road policy.
