Reducing costs

There are many ways your travelers can save on their tour cost:
  • Big group bonus: The more you enroll, the more you earn. Get other troops to join your group to take advantage of bonuses of up to $4,000. Use this bonus to reduce the cost of the tour for each girl.
  • Discounts for hosting students: You could receive a $200 discount for hosting an international student through EF. If you’ve already hosted, you could be eligible for the discount retroactively.
  • Early enrollment savings: The sooner girls enroll on tour, the more they can save—from cash incentives to lower program fees.
