Before The Trip

Flights

All EF College Break travelers get e-tickets, which means you just need your passport to check in. Just go to the check-in counter and they'll take care of you.

Accommodations:

We provide accommodations that are safe and comfortable for our travelers. You’ll stay in a mix of classic European-style hotels and boutique hostels. These aren’t the shady hostels from the 70’s- they’re modern and specially designed for young adult travelers (think cool lounges, roof decks, on-site bars, or free wi-fi).

Transportation

Our trips cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time, but we make sure you get between cities quickly, efficiently, and comfortably. You’ll travel via coach bus, train, ferry, or flight between cities. These trips are a great chance to watch the passing scenery or catch up on sleep.

Tour directors

Your tour director takes care of all the logistics (hotels, buses, sightseeing tours, etc.), but they're much more than a normal group travel guide. They'll suggest places to go in your free time, give you inside info on the cities, and show you where to go out at night.

Rooming

Standard rooming is 3-6 people per room. You can upgrade to a double or twin room (2 people) for $35 per hotel night, per person, or to a single room for $70 per hotel night. If you want to room with someone of the opposite sex, you have to upgrade to a double/twin room.

Meals

Start your day right with free continental breakfast daily. A typical European breakfast includes stuff like pastries, cereal, toast, and coffee. Lunch and dinner are usually on your own, so you can eat whatever local foods you want. Some trips to Asia, Australia, and Africa include more meals; check the itineraries for details.
