  11. Why group travel? Group travel keeps tours affordable, allowing more students to see the world • Combined groups get the best value. • Tour choice and departure date flexibility to match with other groups. • Meet other students from around the country. • Good way to have your first international travel adventure. • Our departure date window is:July 23th, 2018 to July 30th, 2018

  12. What are you responsible for outside tour cost? • Spending money • For additional tour experiences, free time activities, souvenirs, beverages, lunches and snacks ($30-$65 per day; I recommend $50) • Excursions • We will all do Westminster in London @ $66, Versailles in Paris will be optional @ $99 • Tips • For your Tour Director, bus driver and local guides (around $10 per day) • Airport baggage fees • Passport and/or visa fees

  13. Passports & visas All travelers are responsible for securing necessary documentation • Passports • Valid passports are required for all travelers. Passports may take up to 14 weeks to process. • Important note: Passports must be valid for at least six months after our return date.

  16. Paying for Your Trip 2 3 1 Gifts Rummage Sales No-Interference Clause • Instead of traditional birthday and holiday gifts, request friends and family to give a gift towards your travels. • Several students have had various rummage sales to prepare, asking close friends and family to donate items. • Some have raised over $2000 in one single sale! • Home-business options • Signature Homestyles, Scentsy, Jamberry, Origami Owl have fundraising promotions that students have used. • So many programs require fundraising at our school. • Do not replicate a fundraiser one of the current activities already does – Close-Up, Music, Teams, etc.

  17. Your tour donation page A quick and easy way to raise money for your tour How it works • Located on your personal EF website • Share your donation page on social media or via email with friends and family members you’d like to ask for support • All donations are automatically added to your account • Mrs. Lieberg’s Personal Preference: Please make contact personally instead of a blanket invitation.
