We believe travel is for everyone. When students go beyond the classroom it brings education to life, unlocks new potential, and opens a world of possibility. We strive to make that experience available to anyone by making tours affordable and approachable. The first step is our dedication to providing the lowest price on the market. Then we make sure payment options are practical, flexible, and easy to understand. Finally, we want to make sure you feel fully confident in your investment. That’s why we’ve created new policies in response to COVID-19, such as risk-free enrollment for 2022 tours.
Oh, and if you find a lower price somewhere else, make sure to tell us about it.
Providing maximum valueAt EF, we do student travel better than anyone else. Our secret sauce is a time-tested blend of product innovation, global expertise, and superhuman support. We take the hassle out of traveling by booking everything directly and handling pretty much whatever else you can think of, too. All this stuff? The program fee covers it.
Putting tours within reachOur low tour prices provide a great start, but we understand that families want to take a smart approach to payments. To make the cost more manageable, we offer a variety of tools and resources to make travel possible for students. Choose one or choose them all. Every option below is available to all our travelers.
Our Global Citizen Scholarship gives out $100,000 to students across the country every year and is both needs- and merit-based. Any student is able to apply in order to help make their dream of traveling a reality. All it takes is a quick online application and a short video about how traveling will change the student’s place in the world.
Available to new travelers
If you sign up for a tour traveling in 2022 by October 31, 2020 with our Automatic Payment Plan or by Paying in Full, you have the option to cancel your tour for any reason before February 15, 2021 and we’ll refund 100% of the money paid to EF.

Taking students on tour is a big deal, so we know you do a ton of research before choosing a travel partner. We work hard to provide an incredible experience while keeping our prices low. But if you come across a lower price on a similar trip elsewhere, let us know. We want to talk to you about it and see what we can do.
