Advantages of Group Travel for Study Abroad
Arrive knowing people
Someone there to help out
Savings on airport transfers
More flexible fares
Reserve with a deposit
You get to acquaint yourself with the students, staff and possibly faculty before you arrive at your destination. This way, you have the comfort of landing with people you have already met and will be socializing with for a semester or a year.
Your Study Abroad provider will be aware of your arrival and departure information. You may also gain some advantage in housing and roommate selection as you will be on their schedule for orientation.
Transfers to and from your overseas school destination from the airport or train station are often provided by your Study Abroad program if there are sufficient participants for the group flight. This may result in a substantial savings as these transfers can be as much as $100.00 in some cities.
Flexibility on changes by you in your itinerary for a fee, are usually more available in negotiated group air rates. Individual sale rates on airfare usually tend to have the most restrictive conditions, such as nonrefundable and non-changeable limits.
You can reserve your seat on most group flights for a small deposit and pay in full around thirty days prior to departure. If your plans change, you will only be out the deposit prior to ticketing and not the full amount of your air ticket.
