For over 50 years we’ve been committed to the safety of our groups. With a team of more than 43,000 EF personnel around the globe, we have a presence in nearly every destination we travel to—ensuring that we’re there to support you wherever and whenever you need us.
A RELIABLE PARTNER
You’ll have an experienced Tour Director with your group from the moment you clear customs to the time you set off for home again. In addition to knowing the ins and outs of every destination on your itinerary, Tour Directors undergo extensive training in managing challenging situations.
Plus, your Tour Director has a direct line to EF offices both locally and globally for added support—and of course, you, your students, and your administrators can reach us 24/7 as well.
the coverage you need
In addition to our worldwide presence, institutions, educators, and students are also covered from unforeseen circumstances that may arise before or during their programs:
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.
Peace of Mind Program
All groups are automatically covered by our Peace of Mind program. Should a group’s travel plans need to change for any reason, Group Leaders have the flexibility to change their program date, destination, or itinerary up to 45 days before their departure.
Global Travel Protection Plan
All travelers have the option to purchase the Global Travel Protection Plan. This plan helps travelers protect their investment from common claims, including: flight delay, loss of job by a parent, death or illness of a family member, and medical coverage on a program in case of sickness or an emergency. While this plan is not required, many Group Leaders choose to make it mandatory for their travelers.
