Pricing that makes travel possible

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.

Providing maximum value

At 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 reach

Our 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.

Tools to make tours happen

There’s flexibility to pay at your own pace

Enroll in EF’s Automatic Payment Plan

Sending a student on tour opens up plenty of questions about cost. We get it. Our recommended plan offers the ability to break the tour fee into smaller installments and the flexibility to do it in the way that makes the most sense for you. With most tours planned well in advance, you can enroll for only $95 then pay over a long period of time, often up to 18 months or two years. Monthly or bi-weekly payments and even the day of the week are all in your control.

An easy way for family and friends to chip in

Fundraise with no-fee donation pages

Everyone could use a helping hand. Or, better yet, hands. That’s why every traveler has their own unique donation page. It’s easy to share and customizable, so friends and family can securely contribute a little something that is automatically applied towards your balance.

Anyone should have the chance to travel

Apply for the Explorer Scholarship

Our Explorer Scholarship gives out $50,000 to students across the country every year and is both needs- and merit-based. Any student is eligible in order to help make their dream of traveling a reality. All it takes is an online application filled out by a parent or guardian along with a brief student essay about what the tour means to them.

Teachers, let’s talk

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.
