After being stuck at home for such a long stretch and with optimism about an end to the pandemic on the horizon, many of us are ready for the opportunity to travel with our group. But when it will really be over? And if and when it finally does end, will it come back? With these uncertainties on everyone’s mind, it’s difficult to commit to trip that might have to be canceled.

We understand your dilemma and have implemented cancellation and change policies to put your mind at ease! Here’s how booking with Educational Travel Adventures will give you the peace of mind you need to book your next trip:
