What Is EFCB

EF College Break runs trips to Europe and all over the world
for college student travelers (anyone 18 to 28). We have summer trips, spring break trips, and New Year’s trips. We go to Europe’s best cities—Amsterdam, London, Paris, and many more—and we go farther, to places like Thailand and Australia. With all the can’t-miss sights plus tons of free time to do your own thing, an EFCB trip beats backpacking on your own, hands-down. Here’s how:


Meet new people

Travel with a group of people 18-28 from all over the U.S and return home with more friends than when you left.

Join solo or with friends

About half of our travelers join on their own, so it’s super easy to meet people and make friends. Learn more about signing up solo.

See the world

With our trips, you get a perfect mix of guided activities and time to explore on your own. Get lost wandering a new city, make friends with locals, eat until you can’t take another bite, and stay out all night dancing.


Forget the hassle

Don’t waste hours figuring out train schedules and trying to find a decent place to stay. We take care of all that, so you’re free to explore the city and have fun.

Get more with a tour director

Your tour director will hook you up with the basics and point you to the best lesser-known places to go during your free time.

Count on our experience

EF has been doing student travel since 1965, and we have offices in more than 50 countries. We’re experts on every city, and we can give you local support if you need it, no matter where you travel.


Low price guarantee

With so many travelers, we get great deals that bring the cost way down. We guarantee the lowest price—find the same trip for cheaper anywhere else, and we’ll match the price.

Automatic payment plan

With our easy automatic payment plan, the cost of your trip is broken up into monthly or biweekly installments. We created it to help make budgeting easier and to give you more time to think about your trip instead of remembering to make payments. Course, if you’d rather pay all at once, you can do that, too. And maybe you can take us out for beers afterward.
