How it works
Your child’s tour is going to change their world for the better
You’re probably here because a leader in your community is leading an EF tour. That’s awesome news! Educational travel gives girls lifelong memories and helps them grow in countless ways. (We’re talking everything from gaining more confidence to developing a greater sense of empathy, just to name a few.) But before your daughter takes off, we’re here to answer all of your questions. Take a look through this page, or download our printable Parent Guide.
Travel is for everyone
We believe every girl should have the ability to travel. That’s why we offer the best value in the market, and give you a variety of tools and resources to help manage travel costs.
Automatic Payment Plan
Pay at your own pace. Break the cost of your trip into manageable monthly or bi-weekly payments.More on payment plans
Risk-free enrollment period
New travelers who enrolled on an EF Educational Tour no later than January 1, 2022 will have the option to cancel their tour for any reason prior to February 1, 2022 for a full refund of 100% of the monies paid to EF.More on risk-free enrollment
Girls' Empowerment Travel Scholarship
We're awarding a $20,000 travel scholarship to one deserving group of girls.More on the scholarship
Your child’s safety is everything
First and foremost, we would never send a traveler to a location we believe to be unsafe—and with our extensive global presence, our best-in-the-industry experience, and our close working relationships with U.S. and international authorities, that’s a statement we can back up with real insight. We have so much to say about the safety of your child, we could fill a whole page. So, that’s exactly what we did. Please check it out.
Whatever you need, we’ve got you
We’re here to help you with everything and everything travel-related and we want you to feel fully confident when signing your child up for their travel program. That’s why we’ve created new flexible policies in response to COVID-19, such as a risk-free enrollment period for 2022 tours. See our coverage and policy flexibility →
For one-on-one support, reach out to one of our Traveler Support Specialists (who we tend to think about as human search engines for all things EF). They’ll work with you and your child to answer any what-ifs and how-tos, from questions about payment plans to documenting dietary preferences. Want to do your own research? You always have access to our detailed Help Center, which provides information on everything from packing and passports to meals and destination guides. Explore the Help Center →
Put your child a step ahead
Your child can get college credit for what they experience on their travel program. That new food they try and actually like? The conversations they have with locals? Yep, experiences like these can help them earn college credit with our exclusive online course offered by Southern New Hampshire University. The best part is, they’ll gain the confidence of completing a college-level course before they’re even out of high school!
