Individuals who would like to request a different flight itinerary from the rest of the group must submit a Special Travel Request by 110 days before departure. Special travel plans include flying ahead of the group before tour, staying behind after the tour ends, flying into or out of a different domestic gateway or making one’s own flight arrangements entirely.
Special Travel Requests cannot be confirmed until the group’s tour and dates are confirmed approximately 70 days before departure. Travelers should not book any flights or make separate arrangements until they receive this confirmation. Please note that travelers with alternate travel plans from their group are likely to fly separately from the group on all legs of their journey.
Travelers can make their request by filling out a Special Travel Request form through their online account. To get access to the online form, please either use our live chat at the bottom of this page or call our Traveler Support team at 800-665-5364. You can also find a sample of this form here.
Group Leaders may request special flight and/or land travel arrangements for their entire group. The group may fly before the start of tour or stay behind after the tour ends, and any additional travel costs would be added to each traveler’s balance. Group Leaders should make any group special travel requests with their EF Experience Specialist before their first enrollment.
