EF Ultimate Break FAQ

How Does the Manual Payment Plan Work?

If you don't pay in full or choose the Automatic Payment Plan when you sign up, you'll be enrolled in the Manual Payment Plan. Here's how it works: 

  • Service fee: $50* 
  • Deposit at booking: At least $450 (plus the cost of Travel Protection, if purchased).
  • Payments: To make a payment, just log into your online account. 
  • Final payment deadline: 99 days before your trip leaves.

Do I Have to Be a College Student?

Nope! You’re a student of life anyways, right? You just need to be between the ages of 18-29 during your trip to travel with us. The trips are designed to bring together travelers from all walks of life. Whether you're a student, a young professional or just looking to leave town for a bit and see the world, everyone deserves a break.

Is It Common to Book a Trip Solo?

Completely! In fact,  EF Ultimate Break encourage it. Around half of their travelers sign up alone, but none of them travel alone. You'll be making friends from all over the country and sharing experiences to remember for a lifetime. 

Traveling solo gives you the opportunity to step out of your comfort zone, find a new side of yourself and see the world the way YOU want to see it. 

EF Ultimate Break will also set you up with a private Facebook group a few months prior to your trip, so you can connect with your future best friends before you even depart! The first night of your tour will have a welcome mixer (included in the price) that will give you the chance to have a couple drinks, break the ice and start your adventure right. 

What is the Role Of My Tour Director?

Your Tour Director is your on-tour travel aficionado and go-to expert for anything you might need. Basically, they're like a sherpa, except they have a sense of humor and don't carry all your stuff. 

They can't wait to greet you when you arrive at your first city, and will lead the group from start to finish of tour. They are responsible for overseeing daily logistics, reservations and more so that you can relax and have fun without sweating the details. Each of them is experienced in the industry and expertly trained. 

Moreover, the Tour Directors offer an enriching trip through their local perspective as they guide you in the places they love. They'll teach you about other cultures, how to get around, orient you on the best places to visit in the city and show you an awesome time!

What is Included In the Trips?

Lots. EF Ultimate Break includes your flights, accommodations, a full-time Tour Director, continental breakfast daily, sightseeing and walking tours, entrance to select attractions, transportation between cities and a team of travel experts to help you every step of the way.

Can I Extend My Trip?

Extending your trip before or after tour is easy! For a mere $30 fee, you can add anywhere from one to 90 extra days. All of your gateway choices and prices are readily visible during the checkout process. EF Ultimate Break will book your flights per your specifications; you handle the hotels, local activities, and ground transportation during the extra portion of your stay. 

Note: Depending on your desired gateways, extra charges may apply.
