Worry-free flexible enrollment

New travelers who enroll on an EF College Study Tour by January 1, 2022, will have the option to cancel their program for any reason prior to May 1, 2022 for a full refund of 100% of the monies paid to EF. To be eligible, the traveler must be enrolling on a program with a scheduled departure date between October 1, 2022 and September 30, 2023. Travelers must pay in full or enroll in our Automatic Payment Plan at the time of program enrollment and must remain either paid in full or enrolled in our Automatic Payment Plan and in good financial standing at the time of cancellation to remain eligible. Travelers who apply a Future Travel Voucher towards the cost of their program are not eligible for this Risk Free Enrollment Period.

$50 million liability policy

Group Leaders and institutions are automatically insured under our $50 million General Liability Policy, regardless of whether or not the program is considered a university event. This policy safeguards Group Leaders and institutions in case of claims from incidents that occur while traveling, such as personal injury, and provides any necessary legal defense and payment for any associated legal fees.

New health and wellness standards


We’re proud to have earned the World Travel & Tourism Council’s Safe Travels stamp—the world’s first-ever global safety and hygiene stamp for Travel & Tourism, designed specifically to address COVID-19 and similar outbreaks. Additionally, we received a TOURCARE stamp from the United States Tour Operators Association, an international travel and tourism association and fellow recipient of the Safe Travels stamp. This TOURCARE stamp further recognizes the proactive measures we’re taking to protect the well-being of our travelers.
