Booking Flights must be done through Travelmation (our contracted travel agency) after payment and registration have been completed.
You will receive additional instructions after these items have been completed.
You must make sure to ask your natural parents and host family for permission to attend the trip. You must read the Cancellation and Terms and Conditions. You will receive an e-mail with instructions on how to book your flight after we have met the minimum number of participants required. Please DO NOT book your flight on your own. This is not allowed.
***A minimum of 40 students registered is mandatory for the trip to occur. If we do not reach 40 students, we will have to cancel the trip.
Flights can only be booked once the student receives an email stating to do so and should only be booked through Travelmation.
The advantage to signing up early is to reserve your spot on the tour. We close the tour when we hit the maximum amount of participants allowed. Signing up early also allows students to get better deals on flights to each city. The closer to the tour dates the higher the flight costs so sign up early and save a lot of money!
We pack a lot into each tour! Here’s what you get: accommodations, breakfast & dinners (lunch not included), ground transportation including charter buses, ferries, and other forms of transportation, entrance fees to all museums visited, tickets to all entertainment activities on the tour, full time tour guides, and security services. FLIGHT IS NOT INCLUDED IN PRICE OF TOUR
We will alert you once the tour has met the minimum 40 students signed up. We want you to have the best flight and price possible which is why early registration is so important.
We try to make the tours as affordable as possible so we place 4 students in a double bedded room. This means you will share a bed with another student. If you would like to have your own bed you can pay an extra fee.
You can alert ETC of room preferences and they will do their best to accommodate those requests.
