Frequently asked questions:
What is TourLink Travel Journal?
TourLink Travel Journal is an improved way for EF travelers to share their tour experiences with family and friends, and it’s a new way for our travelers to connect with each other before, during and after tour. Thirty days prior to departure, every traveler will be invited to create their own personal online journal and add updates, photos and videos. They also can easily share their journals with friends on Facebook.
Who monitors the journals?
All journals are self-monitored, and visitors have the ability to report questionable content for removal. Neither EF Educational Tours nor Everlater is responsible for the content uploaded. All participants must agree to the Terms and Conditions that details prohibited content and reserves the right to remove and ban anyone that violates these terms.
How should I connect to TourLink while on tour?
We recommend connecting with free Wi-Fi while on tour to avoid expensive roaming charges. Please contact your mobile provider to check your data plan.
Who are travelers sharing their information with? Who can see the journal?
All travelers can choose to share their information via Facebook, Twitter and email. Everyone from their bus will be invited to the journal group and will be able to see all the content uploaded (unless a traveler opts to make their journal private). Journals cannot be found via Google search—they must be shared by someone from the tour or someone following the journal.
Do I have to be Facebook friends with the travelers in my group?
No, just because you’ll see the other travelers in your TourLink journal, it does not mean you have added them as a Facebook friend. You will still have all the same privacy settings on your Facebook profile.
What if I don’t want to be a part of TourLink Travel Journal?
Any EF traveler or group leader can choose to opt out of TourLink Travel Journal. If you opt out, you will not be associated with the group’s or any traveler's online journals.
